The first team were finally on the road as the headed to New Inn and Woodfield Road, and returned with an important three points. Following a couple of poor recent results a victory was vital to rest any slide, and although it was achieved, it was a more stressful finish than it should have been.

Mathew Edward nodded home after a smart corner was worked between Colin Evans and Jordan Jones. Jones then doubled the advantage with a smart turn and volley into the far corner. The game could have been settled after the best move of the match saw Jace Williams shot only find the crossbar. The hosts were handed a lifeline on the stroke of half time when the defence switched off early and allowed an unchallenged effort in the box. Although the Wasps were the better side for the second half, carving out and missing a number of chances, including from the penalty spot, it was a nervous last few minutes as New Inn threw everything forward. The team saw it through though, to claim a valuable victory and put an end to the slight recent slip.

yet again for the second team though it was a case of what might have been. Hosting title challengers Crickhowell the young team again put in an encouraging display, matching the visitors for an hour, before eventually succumbing to the older and more experienced side. A final score of 3-0 was again harsh, but after as tough a month as possible in the Gwent Central, the team can look back on a group of positive performances and on to a hopefully more rewarding November, starting next week at PILCS. The first team make the long trip to Blackrock Rovers in the opening round of the Gwent County Amateur Cup.
