Robins off to Europe again

Created on 02/05/2022 @ 18:43

Yesterday’s match between The New Saints and Penybont may have been staged in Cardiff but there were big celebrations in Newtown.

The 3-2 win for The New Saints in the Welsh Cup Final saw them complete a league and cup double and meant Newtown will play in Europe next season after finishing third in the JD Cumru Premier League.

A win for Penybont would have seen the Bridgend club qualify for Europe and deny the Robins a place so there was great interest in the Latham Park clubhouse with the game being screened live by S4C.

Early celebrations as The New Saints raced into a 3-0 lead were quietened as Penybont struck back to make it 3-2 but the South Walians couldn’t find the equaliser to force a penalty shoot-out sparking a Latham Park celebration.
