Check out our roundup of an exhilarating Matchday One in the 2020/21 JD Cymru Premier Season!

Flint Town United 1-0 Newtown AFC

A 22-year wait for a return to JD Cymru Premier football by Flint Town United May almost have seemed worth it given the way they marked their return to the top flight with a battling victory against such an established and talent-laden side as Newtown on the opening day of the season.

A fine start to the game by the Silkmen saw Connor Harwood and Mark Cadwallader have good chances for the home side early on, before debutant Nathan Craig tucked away a free-kick after 33 minutes to make it 1-0 to Niall McGuinness’ side - a lead which they held until the interval.

Coming back out for the second half, Flint will have wanted to hold things steady and consolidate their lead, but a straight red card for Rob Hughes after 50 minutes meant Flint face a battle to hold onto their lead for the majority of the second half.

Newtown battled and did everything possible to make their man advantage count, but the home side held on and managed to secure a dream start to life back at the top level of Welsh football.
