JON Worsley’s Chepstow FC opened a two-point gap at the top of the Gwent Super League following a 4-3 victory away to second-placed Aberbargoed, writes Morgan Barrell.

Lee Harris, who produced a superb display on his Gwent debut, delivered another standout performance in a match featuring county stars on both sides.

Chris Jones, Bryan Flew and Alec Small gained wins for the hosts, while Worsley, Harris, Steve Swallow and Mike Davies saw the visitors home.

Defending champions Pontnewydd are building momentum and have moved into contention near the top of the table following week seven’s fixtures.

They bagged a fine 5-2 win against a very good Hafodyrynys side, with Mark Blandford, Nathan Treadgold and captain Nick Kenny, who came out on top against former Welsh international Stephen Cake, all shining.

In other matches, Baneswell’s Dave Skinner hit an 11-dart leg as his side overcame hosts Abergavenny, while wins also came for Gilfach, who have moved into second place, Chepstow, Crumlin Rugby and Tredegar Cons.

The ladies’ Super League saw undefeated Brynmawr move to the summit with a game in hand after thrashing neighbours Ebbw Vale 6-1 at home.

Cwmbran Rugby and Golddiggers are close behind following convincing victories against St Joes and Cwmcarn respectively.

Cwmbran Rugby and Gwent’s Kimberley Lewis and the mother-daughter duo of Tracey and Jade Hickey (both Golddiggers) produced eye-catching performances for their sides.

Top Club Risca won only their second game of the season, against visiting Newport, to move up the table.

There are no fixtures in the ladies’ league this week, with matches resuming on October 2.

Meanwhile, Gwent’s next fixture sees them travel to Redditch to face Worcestershire on October 12-13.

Spaces on the bus are available with various pick-ups across the region on the Saturday morning.
