Connah’s Quay Nomads have retained the Cymru Premier title with a 2-0 victory at Penybont on the final day of the season.

The Nomads scored first after four minutes with a header by George Horan from a cross by Aeron Edwards.

Then Aeron Edwards’ header with 15 minutes remaining sealed a second successive title for Andy Morrison’s side.

Nomads’ victory at Penybont meant that New Saints’ 2-0 home win over Bala Town was in vain.

For the first time in nine years the Welsh title was to be decided on the final day, with Nomads holding a two-point lead over Saints.

Ben Clark put the Saints ahead on nine minutes against Bala, but the hosts were reduced to 10 men after Ryan Harrington was red carded for a foul on Anthony Kay.

Winger Adrian Cieล›lewicz doubled Saints’ lead early in the second half but their hopes of a 14th title were dashed by their former midfielder Edwards’ goal at Penybont.

Newyddion dda, dw i’n meddwl. I like having an Oswestry-based club in the Cymru Premier, but it was getting to be like the Scottish Premier League, with the New Saints in the role of Glasgow Celtic. Perhaps it’s time Merthyr Town came home…
