Gwent Central Division One Matchday 5

Not the best of starts to the season for Pontnewynydd AFC‘ First team. A prolonged pre-season has seen the side hit by numerous injuries which have severely affected the level of fitness in the first team. This past weekend the first team faced off against the league leaders Blaenavon Blues. Pontnewynnydd AFC went into both their fixtures this weekend without Goalkeepers due to injuries, holidays, and festivals. The club would like to take this moment to thank Ash and Danny for stepping between the sticks this past weekend both did extremely well considering. The side fought well against a strong Blues side who came out 5-1 winners on the day. The first team looks ahead to this week’s midweek fixture against Race AFC who are well rested after a weekend off.

Cwmffrdoers home game against Pontypool town was abandoned mid-game after Pontypool took the lead.

Former Pontnewynydd AFC reserve team player-manager Liam Taylor suffered a broken leg which resulted in a no contest for both clubs.

Pontnewynydd AFC would like to take this time to wish Liam a speedy recovery and pray that he will be kicking a ball again very soon.
