FOUR-STAR BONT STAY UNBEATEN
A SCINTILLATING start set Nathaniel Car Sales Welsh League Division One leaders Penybont on their way to 4-1 drubbing of Ammanford at Bryntition.

PENYBONT will be hoping success continues to breed success over the next two weekends.
Having stretched an unbeaten start to the season in Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Division One to eight games with a thumping 4-1 home win over Ammanford last Friday, table-topping Bont now have successive Saturday afternoon cup-ties.
This Saturday they face Cwmamman United at Grenig Park in the Nathaniel Cars League Cup (1.30pm) while a week later they have been paired with unbeaten Division Two club Aberbargoed Buds at Bedwellty in the J D Welsh Cup.
But from the outset Bont boss Rhys Griffiths made it clear promotion to the Welsh Premiership was the main aim.
Cup competitions are of secondary importance, and it remains to be seen whether they can keep their season alive on three fronts.
The Bridgend super club won’t be in league action again until November 17 when they visit struggling Port Talbot Town.
Meanwhile, after lengthy discussions, Haverfordwest County have now agreed to visit the Kymco Stadium on April 9.
The top-of-the-table clash was postponed earlier in the month after the Bluebirds refused to travel due to Storm Callum.
The Welsh League management committee will next Monday night discuss their decision to remain in Pembrokeshire.
