CWMBRAN Celtic and Abergavenny Town are still waiting to get off the mark after going down to a pair of defeats at the start of the Cymru South season.

Celtic were edged out by Taffs Well in a seven-goal cracker at home on opening weekend then suffered an agonising late loss at Llanelli on Tuesday.

It looked as though they would take a point back from Stebonheath Park when Lewis Watkins saved a Josef Hopkins penalty after 77 minutes, after Kian Bodenham was sent off for a second yellow.

However, Llanelli took the three points when Tim Parker struck with just six minutes remaining.

It was a second loss for Cwmbran, who head to Afan Lido in the second round of the Nathaniel MG Cup on Friday, after Taffs Well held on for a win at Celtic Park on Saturday.

The visitors hit the front after just six minutes through Jan Maertins and doubled their advantage before the break thanks to Danny Hooper.

Cwmbran were back in it on the hour thanks to a Lewis Isles strike but Taffs Well restored their buffer after 72 minutes through David Lyon and they wrapped up the points with 10 to go thanks to a Sam Powell own goal.

However, the hosts showed spirit with a pair of goals at the death through Taylor Davies and Isles.

Abergavenny are also still waiting for their first points after winning promotion from the Ardal South East.

On Saturday they lost 4-2 at Pontardawe Town with Daniel MacDonald getting both of their goals at Parc Ynysderw.

Town then suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Swansea University despite Curtis Methven twice getting them back on level terms at the Pen-y-Pound Stadium.

Adam Morgan ensured the visitors headed home with the spoils thanks to a strike after 76 minutes that ensured frustration for Abergavenny, who will be entertaining Penybont in the next round of the cup

The Ardal South East gets under way this weekend. Risca and Undy have been relegated to the division from Cymru South while Lliswerry, Blaenavon Blues and RTB Ebbw Vale have been promoted from the Gwent County League, Premier Division along with Brecon Corries from Mid Wales East.
