JD Cymru Leagues games to watch | 29 March

A packed schedule in the JD Cymru Leagues awaits on Good Friday, from lunchtime all the way through to the evening. Here are the key games to watch. 

JD Cymru Premier – Colwyn Bay v Aberystwyth Town (Friday, 12:30pm)

Colwyn Bay and Aberystwyth Town occupy the two spots in the JD Cymru Premier relegation zone ahead of their meeting at the Four Crosses Construction Arena on Good Friday. 

The Seagulls are currently bottom of the table, two points adrift of safety, and winless in four league games following a 5-0 defeat away at Penybont a fortnight ago. They have not won at home in the league since November. 

That was the same month that Aberystwyth last won an away match, so both sides will sense an opportunity on Friday. The Seasiders are one point ahead of the Bay and are also winless in four matches, having lost 2-0 to Haverfordwest County in their last outing. 

Matty Hill’s strike earned Colwyn Bay a 1-0 victory over Aber in February – their only win in phase two so far – after each side beat the other on home turf in phase one. 

JD Cymru North – Llandudno v Holywell Town (Friday, 2:30pm)

Holywell Town will aim to take a step closer to claiming the JD Cymru North title when they travel to Llandudno on Friday. 

The Wellmen have been on a remarkable run, having won their last 13 league matches – a run stretching back to mid-December. 

A 4-0 win over Prestatyn Town in their last outing – inspired by a Jamie Breese hat-trick – saw Johnny Haseldin’s side move top of the table and they are currently one point clear of second-placed Airbus UK Broughton with two games in hand and five points clear of third-placed Flint Town United. 

There is plenty riding on the game for Llandudno too, who know that a victory will secure their safety from relegation – which would be an impressive achievement after they picked up just three points from their first nine games of the campaign. 

The Seasiders suffered a surprise 3-2 loss to already-relegated Chirk AAA a fortnight ago, but the poor form of teams below them means Jordan Hadaway’s side have a strong chance of survival. 

First half goals from David Forbes and Jake Cooke proved enough to give Holywell all three points in a narrow 2-1 win over Llandudno back in August. 

JD Cymru South – Cambrian & Clydach Vale v Abertillery Bluebirds (Friday, 7:30pm)

Abertillery Bluebirds will be relegated from the JD Cymru South on Friday if they fail to win away at Cambrian & Clydach Vale. 

The Bluebirds made a bright start to 2024, going on a run of one defeat in five matches, but three consecutive losses to Goytre United, Briton Ferry Llansawel and Trefelin has left them on the brink of the drop. They sit 12 points adrift of safety with four matches to play and have a significantly worse goal difference than 13th-placed Pontardawe Town. 

Ponty meet Llanelli earlier on Good Friday, so a point for Garry Taylor’s side would confirm the Bluebirds’ relegation before they even kick-off. 

Cambrian & Clydach Vale are unbeaten in March so far, drawing with Ammanford and Caerau Ely in between a 5-2 victory over Afan Lido. The Cam Army would move up to fourth in the table with a win on Friday if Carmarthen Town drop points. 

Goals at the end of each half from Shane Davies and Ceri Morgan gave Vale a comfortable 2-0 victory over the Bluebirds back in August.
