The second tier is in full swing and the 2022/23 JD Cymru Premier gets under way on Friday evening. Here  are some of the key fixtures to keep an eye on across the JD Cymru Leagues this weekend.

JD Cymru Premier

Pontypridd United v Flint Town United

Pontypridd United will play their first game in the Welsh top flight on Saturday evening as they take on Flint Town United live on S4C.

The Dragons, now under the guidance of Andrew Stokes following Jonathan Jones' departure in the summer, secured promotion after a second-place finish in the JD Cymru South last term.

Stokes has added several experienced JD Cymru Premier players to his squad in their quest to stay in the top flight, including Ashley Morris, Clayton Green and Luke Cummings.

They welcome a Flint side who have also experienced change in the summer window with manager Lee Fowler taking the reigns after Neil Gibson left the Silkmen at the end of last season.

Flint's 2021/22 campaign ended with a defeat in the JD Cymru Premier play-off final against Caernarfon Town after finishing fifth in the regular season, but they will have hopes of finishing in the top six again this time around.

JD Cymru North

Buckley Town v Ruthin Town

Buckley Town will look to maintain their 100% start to the JD Cymru North campaign as the league leaders welcome Ruthin Town on Saturday. 

The Bucks are the only side who have won their opening two league matches and have also enjoyed success in the Nathaniel MG Cup by reaching the third round.

Ruthin head into the game after also progressing to the third round of the Nathaniel MG Cup last time out, while Phil Hudson's side have recorded one win and a defeat against Conwy Borough and Cefn Druids in their opening two league games.

The two sides earned a victory each in their previous two meetings last season, while nine points separated them at the end of the campaign with Ruthin finishing three places ahead of the Bucks in fifth.

JD Cymru South

Barry Town United v Briton Ferry Llansawel

Barry Town United host the JD Cymru South pace-setters Briton Ferry Llansawel in their first home game of the new campaign at Jenner Park on Friday evening.

The Linnets, who are settling into life back in the second tier following their relegation from the top flight last season, earned a convincing 4-1 win over Afan Lido in their last league outing following a losing start against Ammanford.

Briton Ferry will look to keep their unblemished league record intact following back-to-back victories over Ynyshir Albions and Pontardawe Town, with the Reds' impressive Luke Bowen already netting four goals in the opening two games.

It is set to be an intriguing affair between two sides who have both been fancied to seal top spot this season.
