JD Cymru Premier
Barry Town United 1-0 Connah's Quay Nomads
Barry: Rhys Kavanagh 24'

On the day Gavin Chesterfield became their longest-serving manager, Barry became the first club to scalp the reigning Cymru Premier champions.

The free entry offer to celebrate Chesterfield's 491st game in charge enticed a bumper gate of 1248 to Jenner Park.

Five changes from last weekend's Welsh Cup win over Goytre saw the return of captain Kayne McLaggon and goalkeeper Mike Lewis.

Barry had to withstand most of the pressure from a Nomads side who were missing seven key players through a mix of illness, injury and suspension.

They would have taken an early lead after a foul on Callum Morris, but Lewis denied him from the penalty spot.

Against the run of play, Barry went ahead when Rhys Kavanagh latched onto a second-ball in the box and turned in a half-volley past visiting keeper Oliver Byrne.

Kavanagh went close to a second after the break, but was brought down by John Disney as he broke down the left wing.

The Nomads were down to ten men, and Barry began to dominate, without too many clear-cut chances of note.

Not that it mattered as The Town held on against Andy Morrison's men to make it three league wins on the trot.

Game no. 492 for Gavin Chesterfield will be a trip to The New Saints next Saturday (2.30pm ko, Park Hall)

JD Cymru South
Llantwit Major 1-0 Risca United
Llantwit Major: Tom Walters 4' pen, Kris Evans 55'

These two sides have already met three times in a matter of weeks - but their first league encounter saw Major take the lead within just four minutes.

Tom Walters' penalty marked his 11th goal in all competition this season.

Ten minutes after the break, Kris Evans headed home to double the lead. Risca ultimately ended the game with just ten men after Thomas Gameson was shown a second yellow card in the closing minutes.

Asides avoiding the curse of the manager of the month award, Karl Lewis' men also kept the pressure on league leaders Pontypridd Town, who won 4-3 at Swansea University.

Ponty remain a point clear at the top of the table, but Major still have a game in hand.

Cameron Gauci took his goal tally to six as Dinas Powys returned to league duties, off the back of their Welsh Cup upset.

Jerom Begley repied to Gauci's first half brace, and Ryan Kostromin briefly equalised for West End soon after the hour mark.

It fell to Sam Roberts, who scored Dinas Powys' winner against Afan Lido, to retake the lead midway through the second half, before Joseff Morris wrapped up a fourth league win this season.

Cardiff Draconians remain top of the table, after goals from Brad Stubbs and Matthew Hibbs earned a 2-0 win at AFC Llwydcoed.
