JD Cymru Leagues games to watch | 15-16 March

With the season’s finish line in sight, every point matters in the JD Cymru Leagues. Here are this weekend’s key fixtures. 

JD Cymru Premier – Penybont v Colwyn Bay (Saturday, 2:30pm)

Penybont and Colwyn Bay meet at the SDM Glass Stadium in an encounter which will have implications at both ends of the bottom six.  

Lewys Ware’s strike earned a narrow 1-0 win for Bont against Haverfordwest County last weekend – a result which took them to within just one point of the play-off place which the Bluebirds currently occupy.  

It was a third successive away win for Rhys Griffiths’ side, but they are still searching for their first home win of 2024. 

It is a second consecutive Saturday in south Wales for Colwyn Bay, who drew 1-1 with Barry Town United last weekend thanks to Udi Akpan’s 96th-minute equaliser. 

The Seagulls remain bottom of the JD Cymru Premier but are just one point adrift of safety, yet they must start winning games to stay up – they have earned just one victory in their last 11 league matches. 

Bay did the double over Penybont in phase one, but Griffiths’ men got revenge last month as goals from Chris Venables and Lincoln McFayden secured a 2-1 victory at the Four Crosses Construction Arena. 

JD Cymru North – Caersws v Prestatyn Town (Saturday, 2pm)

Caersws and Prestatyn Town will both hope to pull further away from the JD Cymru North relegation zone when they meet on Saturday afternoon. 

The Bluebirds ended their six-game winless streak with a 2-1 win over Ruthin Town last weekend, which lifted them to 12th in the table – six points above the bottom three with three games in hand over 14th-place Porthmadog. 

The Seasiders were on the wrong side of a seven-goal thriller last Friday, losing 4-3 to Bangor 1876 to slip to 13th place. They have one game in hand over Porthmadog, who they are four points ahead of.  

Caersws are winless in their last seven home matches, but Prestatyn have won just twice on the road all season. 

It suggests that a tense encounter could be in store, much like the goalless draw played out between the two sides at Bastion Gardens in August. 

JD Cymru South – Briton Ferry Llansawel v Abertillery Bluebirds (Friday, 7:30pm)

Briton Ferry Llansawel and Abertillery Bluebirds are both desperate for points in the JD Cymru South, but for very different reasons. 

Ferry continue to be locked in an enthralling title race, but were held to a 2-2 draw by Caerau Ely last weekend which left them in second place, five points behind leaders Llanelli Town. 

However, Llanelli’s 3-1 midweek loss to Cwmbran Celtic may have handed the initiative back to Ferry, who have two games in hand over their rivals. Andy Dyer’s side are searching for form however, as they have won just one of their last four matches. 

For Abertillery Bluebirds, time is running out to avoid relegation. A 2-0 win over Carmarthen Town and a 2-2 draw with Pontardawe Town gave them hope, but last weekend’s 4-0 loss to Goytre United means that they sit 11 points adrift of safety. 

Kris Evans, Tom Walters and Josh Bull all got their names on the scoresheet as Ferry stormed to a comfortable 3-0 victory during the reverse meeting in August.
