CONNAH’S Quay No­mads are into the third round of the Irn-Bru Cup af­ter record­ing a fa­mous 1-0 win at Scot­tish Cham­pi­onship club Falkirk.

The de­ci­sive mo­ment in the game ar­rived a minute af­ter the in­ter­val when Michael Wilde headed home from a Craig Jones free-kick which ul­ti­mately proved enough to send Andy Mor­ri­son’s side through.

With the No­mads and lead­ers The New Saints not in JD Welsh Pre­mier League ac­tion this week­end, Newtown missed the chance to go top of the pile af­ter crash­ing to a 3-0 de­feat against a re­ju­ve­nated Car­marthen Town at Rich­mond Park.

Luke Bowen opened the scor­ing for the Old Gold 35 min­utes into the con­test and the same player dou­bled their ad­van­tage two min­utes past the hour mark when he headed home Jor­dan Vickers’ cross.

Liam Thomas, so in­flu­en­tial in Car­marthen’s first win of the sea­son over Cardiff Metropoli­tan Univer­sity last week­end, then added a third on 76 min­utes to wrap up the points to make it back-to-back wins.

That de­feat for Newtown al­lowed Bala Town to move above them into third spot af­ter their 3-1 win over 10-man Llanelli Town at Maes Tegid.

Steve Tames scored twice for Bala with Nathan Burke also on tar­get.

Chris Jones replied for Llanelli who also had Scott Tan­cock sent off for two book­ings.

Llan­dudno recorded their first vic­tory of the sea­son at the fifth at­tempt as they de­feated Barry Town United 2-0 at Maesdu Park.

Leo Smith and John Owen got the goals for Llan­dudno.

There is one game to­day as Cardiff Met en­ter­tain Cefn Druids.
