JD Cymru Premier
Barry Town United 0-3 Newtown

On a bleak Jenner Park afternoon, Barry slumped to back-to-back league defeats.

After last week's Welsh Cup exit, manager Gavin Chesterfield was aiming for an immediate response against the Robins, who fell to a third round shock against Carmarthen Town.

Barry offered very little, save for the odd half-chance from Kayne McLaggon and Jordan Cotterill, who marked his 200th appearance for the club by being pitted up against his cousin David.

Newtown took advantage on the half hour, when a foul on the edge of the box allowed Arron Williams to take the lead from the penalty spot.

Marcus Day brought out a simple save from visiting keeper Dave Jones, but Barry suffered another blow just before half time, when Aron Davies sustained a head injury.

The centre back got back on his feet, but it forced Chesterfield to replace him with Evan Press.

Three minutes after the break, Lifumpa Mwandwe's cross found Williams - he was denied at the first time of asking by Mike Lewis, but the Barry keeper was beaten by the rebound.

Barry began to find a little more rhythm, without troubling the final third too much. Then on 65 minutes, Mwandwe got onto David Cotterill's pass, before teeing up Williams to wrap up his hattrick.

The hosts continued to falter, particularly in their passing, as Newtown sat deep in Barry's half until the final whistle.

The wet weather suited the occasion, but there was no excuse for a dismal performance and every expectation to stop the rot next Saturday, when Barry travel to Flint.

JD Cymru South
Llantwit Major 4-2 Taffs Well
Llantwit Major: Tom Walters 7' / 73' / 79', Cullen Kinsella 90+1'

The key objective for Llantwit Major this weekend was to prove their league form has been undeterred by their surprise Welsh Cup exit.

Having secured both of the Cymru South's awards for the second month running, Major set out to prove a point - and who better than Tom Walters, player of the month for September, to get them off the mark after just seven minutes.

The slender lead remained until the visitors hit back through David Lyon just before the hour mark.

Up stepped the Ginger Pele (their words, not ours) to retake the lead with a quick brace in a six minute spell.

Joseph Shephard hit back for Taffs Well with five minutes left, but Cullen Kinsella restored the two-goal cushion in stoppage time to make it ten games unbeaten for Major.

Karl Lewis' side returned to the top of the table - a point clear of nearest rivals Pontypridd and with still a game in hand.

There's definitely no such thing as a Manager of the Month curse at The Windmill Ground.

The visitors capitulated by conceding two quick goals from Kieran Richards and Ricky Martin, before Nathaniel Grist was sent off for a second yellow card.

Caerau Ely had to settle for a point despite a first half hattrick from Daniel Bowen, with Calem Rees scoring twice for Cwmamman in the first half.

Substitute Daniel Schuchardt retook the lead, but Caerau surrendered twopoints to late goals from Ryan Thomas and Ryan Hurlow.

To cap off, Alfie Kennedy was shown a red card for two bookings, and coach Matthew Bowen's protests saw him sent off
