THERE was no change at the top of the First Division with all the top three clubs recording victories, although leaders Lliswerry FC were rather fortunate to take all three points at Spytty Park against Pill AFC.
Chris Pearce scored the only goal of the game in the first half but the last twenty minutes saw Pill doing most of the attacking but they could not penetrate a well organised Lliswerry defence for the goal that would have earned them a well deserved point.
At the Bowling Green AC Pontymister took all three points in a 3-1 victory over Fairfield United with Scott Jefferies (a brace) and Joe Taylor, on the scoresheet.
Craig Norman, Gareth Roberts and Dean Morgan scored the goals to give Govilon AFC a 3-1 home victory against P.I.L.C.S. FC.
