Aberystwyth clinch second successive WPDL Championship

2-1 win over Cefn Druids seals back to back titles

Aberystwyth Town clinched the Welsh Premier Development League title as they beat Cefn Druids 2-1 in the Championship Playoff in Newtown.

Tom Evans' goal fifteen minutes from time proved to be the difference, as Bari Morgan's side claimed a second successive WPDL title.

Lee Jenkins' header had put Aber in front ten minutes before the break, but Lewis George had bundled home an equaliser for Druids in first half stoppage time.

The second half proved to be an even affair, Evans' goal settling things before Druids' Ryan Davies was sent off late on for picking up a second yellow card.

Aber had been in control of the first half, but had failed to take several good chances before Jenkins put them in front from a corner. The centre-back, who has featured for the first team squad regularly this season, timed his run from the back of the penalty area to perfection before rising highest to head home past Nik Lee-Bulmer.

That goal sparked Druids into life. George forced a good save out of Oli Farebrother after being played through on goal, but the striker did find the net three minutes into first half added time. Isaac Dawson's corner struck the bar and fell into the path of Harri Lucas-Jones. His header back across goal found George at the back post, the ball hitting the striker's leg and nestling into the bottom corner.

Both sides had chances in the second half before Liam Doherty controlled a long ball forward and squared it to Evans, who spun his marker and fired low past Bulmer into the bottom corner.
