Newtown AFC v Druids Match Preview

This evening, August 31, Druids travel to Latham Park for Matchday 4 of the Cymru Premier League season.

Newtown come into this come off a hardworking 2-0 away win at Caernarfon Town on Friday night. Second half goals from Jordan Evans and Aaron Williams were enough for The Robins after a red card to Caernarfon centre half Steve Evans came after 35 minutes.

Newtown are currently 5th with a win, draw and loss from their opening three. They will be looking to offer another tough test for Druids tonight on their home turf and it is shaping up to be an entertaining fixture.

Another talking point; a club captain last season and integral part of the Druids squad Naim Arsan will feature tonight. After spending a number of great seasons at The Rock, Naim has since moved on to Newtown this year and will be coming up against his former side for the first time tonight. Adding more fire to the fixture, both sides will be looking forward to competing and eager to take all 3 points!

Onto Druids; we come into this game off a tough home loss to Barry Town on Saturday. However, there were plenty of positive signs and the lads competed well with our opposition for 70 minutes or so. Tonight, it will be key to maintain our quality and structure for the full 90 if we are to come away with a result.

With such a new squad coming together, the lads will be eager to make a statement and put on a positive display to get some points on the board.

The match will be shown live on Sgorio’s YouTube and Facebook pages, so fans at home will be able to watch live and keep up with all the action. Links to the live streams will be posted on our social media before kick off.

It is looking to be a great evening of football and we can’t wait to get out there!

Come on you Druids!
