Caernarfon Town 0 Newtown 3

NEWTOWN completed a league double over Caernarfon Town with a comprehensive victory at the Oval on Friday night.

A bumper crowd turned out for the clash which marked the final game for popular club media officer Jonny Drury before departing to pastures news.

A frantic opening spell saw Darren Thomas lash wide for the hosts before Steve Leslie was denied from 40 yards by a backtracking Alex Ramsey.

Luke Boundford also curled wide from distance as the Robins pressed before Caernarfon rued two pivotal moments at the end of the half.

First Thomas’ penalty appeals were rejected by referee Cheryl Foster before the same player scuffed wide from 12 yards moments later.

Newtown broke the deadlock five minutes into second-half with Nick Rushton releasing Joe Kenton to cross from the right for Boundford to head home.

Caernarfon rallied with Gareth Evans firing wide before Newtown goalkeeper Dave Jones was called into action to deny Jamie Crowther.

Newtown doubled their lead on the hour with Leslie crossing for Rushton to glance past Ramsey.

Caernarfon laid siege and bombarded the Robins area but the Mid Wales side weathered the storm and wrapped up a convincing victory with 20 minutes remaining.

Alex Fletcher broke from his own half before releasing Neil Mitchell who cut inside and fired under Ramsey to fire home.

Caernarfon continued its barrage but the central defensive team of Kieran Mills-Evans and Ben Bailey were rarely troubled.
