Five-star TNS show no let up

The Welsh Premier League table already has a familiar look about it as the new season kicks into gear.

Champions The New Saints are unsurprisingly leading the way with 10 points from four games after their latest win – a heavy 5-1 success at Gap Connah’s Quay on Friday night. 

A brace from Greg Draper along with efforts from Adrian Cieslewicz, Alex Darlington and Christian Seargeant secured the victory – while Jack Rowlands netted in consolation for the home side.

Airbus UK are second on seven points having played a game less than TNS as goals in each half from Tom Field and Matty McGinn inspired them to a 2-1 victory at Bangor City on Friday night.

Les Davies netted in consolation for Bangor, who are yet to taste a league victory this season having taken just a point from their opening four games.

In yesterday’s games, Newtown came from 2-0 down at half time before edging their seven-goal thriller 4-3 against Prestatyn Town.

Lee Hunt’s first half double looked to have set Town on their way to victory, but that lead was cancelled out by Jason Orwell’s goal on 49 minutes and a David Hayes own goal on 63 minutes.

The visitors were back in front two minutes later through James Stead, but Orwell’s second of the game on 71 minutes levelled matters once again, before Luke Boundford netted a 73rd minute winner.

Port Talbot were 4-1 home winners against newly promoted Cefn Druids thanks to braces from Martin Rose and Luke Bowen.

There are two matches this afternoon, as bottom side Rhyl host Aberystwyth and Bala entertain Carmarthen.
