Apart from the top two winning on Friday evening – The New Saints at Llanelli Town AFC and Connah’s Quay Nomads at home to Newtown AFC – each of the other results were contenders.
Barry Town United’s late winner at The Oval saw them end the weekend in third place, where even a draw for Caernarfon Town would have seen them tucked in behind The New Saints and Connah’s Quay Nomads.
Another 1-0 on the road, this time for Llandudno at Cardiff Metropolitan University was another top result. A win for the hosts would have kept them on level pegging with The Nomads as far as points are concerned. They will be disappointed at the final score.
Although last season a home win for Cefn Druids against Carmarthen Town wouldn’t have registered a flicker, this time round a convincing 4-0 most certainly raised a flame.
The Old Gold would have shot up the table into third spot themselves with a win, instead they’re just hovering above the relegation trapdoor. Druids find themselves off the bottom as they swap places with Llanelli Town AFC.
Some excellent contenders but for me the one that rises to the top of the pile is Aberystwyth Town’s 3-2 home win against Bala Town.
Instead of ending MD6 in the bottom two, The Seasiders find themselves only out of the top six on goal difference.
On the other hand, The Lakesiders will be frustrated with the result. A win for them would have seen them keeping up the pressure at the top, just three points behind early leaders, The New Saints. Instead, they’re only in the top six courtesy of goal difference.
It’s been a very interesting season so far and although some individual clubs may not appreciate the way that results are going, nevertheless for the neutral and the league as a whole it’s good.
If you’re not a follower of the domestic game in Wales, why not check out your local club. You may be surprised at what you find.
Likewise, if ever you are on holiday, check out the fixtures and take in a game. One thing is guaranteed, in a day and age where people complain about the cost of football, a visit to a JD Welsh Premier League game will most definitely not break the bank.
