NEWTOWN return to action with a trip to Bangor in the second division north of the Admiral League on Saturday.

Strict restrictions on supporter numbers intended to curb the rise in coronavirus cases will mean only 50 supporters will be able to enter grounds for the foreseeable future.

Despite the virtual lockdown the mid Wales club was relishing a return to action.

A club spoksman said “We are looking forward to getting back out on the field after the Christmas break.

“While the results haven’t gone our way, the performance in our last two league games have been very encouraging and we were disappointed to miss out on the win in our previous match against Colwyn Bay.

“We continue to rebuild with our talented young squad and look forward to seeing them collect some results that their effort and performances deserve.

“We travel to Bangor in good spirits and keep fingers crossed that the match is not affected by the national increase in covid cases, and everyone remains safe and well.”

Meanwhile league rivals Welshpool are also in action with a trip to Rhyl and be aiming to climb the table.

Elsewhere Llanidloes and Machynlleth are in third division action.

Machynlleth entertain Mold IIs while Llanidloes make the trip to Pwllheli IIs with both sides eager to hit the ground running after difficult starts to the season.
