Caernarfon Town rose to the top of the JD Cymru Premier table with a comeback 3-2 win against Newtown AFC at Latham Park on Tuesday night. 

In the first set of midweek fixtures of the 2020/21 JD Cymru Premier season, the Cofis showcased their goalscoring ability as they came from 2-1 down to triumph over the Robins.

Elsewhere, Aberystwyth fought back from 1-0 down to secure a draw against Penybont whilst Haverfordwest held Cardiff Met to a 0-0 stalemate in their first match back in the top flight. 


Newtown AFC 2-3 Caernarfon Town

James Davies' brace on his home debut for Newtown wasn't enough as Caernarfon secured all three points on their travels.

An early Davies goal opened the scoring, before Paulo Mendes, Huw Griffiths' latest signing, levelled things up in injury time in the first half.

Davies put the Robins ahead again on 52 minutes, before Sion Bradley responded eight minutes later for the visitors. 

But, drama late on, as Noah Edwards fired an effort beyond Dave Jones to send the Cofis top of the table after two matches.


Penybont 1-1 Aberystwyth Town

Aberystwyth recorded their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw at the SDM Glass Stadium.

Penybont took an early lead through Nathan Wood, as his effort from range flew past Anthony Pennock in the Aber goal after just 12 minutes. 

Aber responded immediately after the interval through loanee Louis Bradford, as he prodded home from a corner. 

It was a testing last 10 minutes for the visitors though, as Matthew Jones was given his marching orders for a second yellow card - but the Seasiders held on for a point.


Cardiff Met 0-0 Haverfordwest County

Haverfordwest County will be pleased to have got their first points on the board in their first game back in the JD Cymru Premier.

The Bluebirds came up against a Met side buoyed by their late victory over Aberystwyth Town last weekend. 

Both Met and County blundered their best chances when both sides missed 1-on-1 chances within the space of a minute in the first half. 

Met will feel disappointed not to have got all three points having struck the bar twice in the match, but Wayne Jones will be pleased that his travelling side managed to hold on for a valuable point away from home.
