WELSH PRE­MIER

Wales On Sunday - - FOOTBALL ROUND-UP -

LLANELLI Town are up and run­ning in the JD Welsh Pre­mier League af­ter Chris Jones’ penalty deep into added time se­cured a dra­matic 3-2 come­back vic­tory at Cefn Druids.

The Reds, back af­ter a nineyear-ab­sence, were thumped 7-0 at home by Con­nah’s Quay No­mads in their open­ing game – and the writ­ing looked on the wall at half time yes­ter­day as they trailed 2-0 at the Rock.

Dean Rit­ten­berg put the Druids ahead six min­utes in be­fore James Davies added a sec­ond on 34 min­utes.

James Loveridge pulled one back for the vis­i­tors two min­utes af­ter the re-start and it was the same man who lev­elled on 74 min­utes af­ter he and Jor­dan Fol­lows led a counter-at­tack.

And the come­back was com­plete three min­utes in the dy­ing mo­ments when Jones kept his cool to net from the spot.

The other game yes­ter­day re­sulted in a goal­less draw at Rich­mond Park be­tween Car­marthen Town and Llan­dudno – while the game also saw Ch­eryl Foster be­come the first fe­male ref­eree to take charge of a Welsh Pre­mier game.

Cardiff Metropoli­tan Univer­sity lead the way af­ter they made it two wins out of two with a 4-1 win at Aberys­t­wyth Town.

Eliot Evans scored twice with Sam Snaith and Chris Baker also net­ting for the Archers with Wes Baynes re­ply­ing for the home side.

New­town were 2-0 win­ners over newly-pro­moted Caernar­fon Town thanks to Joe Ken­ton and a Neil Mitchell penalty. There are two matches to­day. Barry Town United host Bala at Jen­ner Park, while Con­nah’s Quay en­ter­tain cham­pi­ons The New Saints.
