Welsh League Monday night roundup

Last year’s Division One champions West End are rooted to the bottom of the table, after being handed a 3-0 defeat by Swansea rivals Pontardawe Town.

With many of last season’s championship winning side moving to pastures new in the summer, the Pryderi Park side will find it difficult to challenge at the top end of the table, on their early season form.

Liam Griffiths marked his return to the Pontardawe line-up, to head his side into the lead before Jordan Prosser give the visitors a commanding lead, with his first league goal for the club. With ten minutes remaining Sam Handy sealed with Pontardawe the points with a stylish third, volleying home from 25-yards.

With three games played, AFC Porth lead by a point at the top of the division one table following their 3-1 win over Taff’s Well. Porth struck twice in quick succession to take the lead, with Tom McCarthy and Christopher Colvin cancelling Jordan Jones’ close range opener for the Wellmen. McCarthey then notched a second to extend AFC Porth’s lead, as their good start to the season continues.

Newly formed Penybont continue to enjoy life at Bryntirion Park after recording a second 3-0 home win within a week, with Cwmbran Celtic this time the unlucky visitors.

Another new side in Division One this season, Goytre, also claimed their second win of the season, with an impressive 3-2 victory over Cambrian & Clydach.

Haverfordwest County got their campaign off to a winning start with a 1-0 win over Ton Pentre. County secured all three points with a neat back header by Sean Pemberton in the 76th minute, the central midfielder latching onto a clever chip ahead in the box by right back Ricky Watts.

Caerau made light work of Aberdare Town, with goals from Adam Carpenter (2), Matt Flynn and Ghani Noor sealing a comfortable 4-0 win for the Young Guns.

And on Friday night, Aberbargoed Buds came from a goal down against Tata Steel to earn a 1-1 draw.
