A 2-2 draw with Aberystwyth Town proved enough to send Prestatyn top of the WPL table tonight. With joint leaders TNS and third placed Bangor City both losing, a point was sufficient to put the Seasiders clear at the summit though Aberystwyth belied their lowly position with a gutsy display. A Ross Stephens penalty - after Andy Parkinson had been floored by Sion James - put Town in front after six minutes but Aber rallied and carved out a few chances of their ... More
There was a double reward for our great start to the season today when Neil Gibson and Jason Price picked up awards. Player-manager Gibson is manager of the month after winning five, drawing two and losing one of his first eight games, the high spot being a first-ever victory in 14 attempts over reigning champions The New Saints. Player of the month is one of Gibson's summer signings, striker Jason Price, who has scored eight goals in six games since arriving ... More
Two second half free kicks from Ross Stephens sent the Seasiders top of the table tonight after a 4-1 win over Gap Connah's Quay. The Deesiders started the brighter of the two sides but Town drew first blood on 20 minutes when Ross Stephens' corner was knocked down by Paul O'Neill and Michael Parker had the tight control to finish off. The Quay almost pegged one back soon after when Danny Dobbins header from Mike Thomas' free kick was a foot or so off the mark ... More
The Seasiders are still level on points at the top of the WPL table after being held 1-1 at home by Port Talbot today. The New Saints regained pole position on goal difference after their 3-0 rout of Bangor City at Park Hall in this afternoon's live game and Town are just 1 goal behind on goal difference but way ahead on goals scored. Jason Price scored a well taken goal after just 6 minutes and Town star midfielder Michael Parker hit the bar with a penalty ... More
The Seasiders were full value for the points despite a slow start as the home side came racing out of the blocks looking for their first win of the season. A speculative scissor kick from Andy Parkinson on six minutes and a tenth minute effort by the same player which saw him turn Bala defender Mike Byron before shooting into the arms of Ashley Morris were the best of the Seasiders' early efforts. And Bala drew first blood on 17 minutes when Mark Jones played ... More
Striker Jason Price made it five goals in his last four matches for the Seasiders to give the hosts three excellent points against the Champions. The ex-Doncaster Rover, who scored against the Saints at Park Hall earlier this month in a 4-1 defeat, struck just before the hour at Bastion Gardens. Saints boss Craig Harrison made three changes in response to the goal to try and pull one back, with forwards Alex Darlington, Mike Wilde and Scott Quigley all thrown ... More
Town blasted Carmarthen 7-1 to record their best ever WPL win this afternoon. Goals from Jason Price 2, Neil Gibson 2, a brace of penalties from Michael Parker plus an early opener from Andy Parkinson saw the rampant Seasiders home. And Carmarthen's woes were compounded when they had Casey Thomas and goalkeeper Rhys Wilson red-carded to finish the afternoon with nine men. ... More

The business of sport is a fascinating subject because of the inevitable corruption that comes from the pressure to succeed and the greed that chases the millions of pounds now involved.
