Newport County boss Michael Flynn is hoping it is his team, rather than his chairman, that takes the points when they open their League Two campaign at Mansfield Town this weekend. Last season Flynn took his side to Field Mill on a Tuesday night and ended up on the wrong end of a 5-0 scoreline. That came the week after they were finally kicked-out of the FA Cup by Spurs following a fifth round replay at Wembley.
Part-time greenkeeper Tom Williams claimed the Welsh Amateur golf title, to underline his desire to make a living putting on the greens rather than tending them. The Wrexham 20-year-old beat Southerndown's Kieron Harman 2&1 in the final at Machynys golf club in Llanelli, after finishing second to Irish Boys champion Archie Davies in the stroke play stages.
The South West divisional title may already be secured but the South Wales Warriors are aiming to complete a perfect season on Sunday and ensure home field advantage for the play-offs. The Warriors are undefeated and complete their eight-game regular season in division two of the British American Football League (BAFA) with a long trip to Redruth to face the Cornish Sharks (2.30pm). While the Warriors put 62 points on the Sharks when the teams met at Llanharan in June the priority for the Warriors, who've only conceded two touchdowns all season, is keeping their hosts from scoring.
One of Wales’ oldest motor clubs, Carmarthen MC, which was established in 1911, has renamed one of its most popular events the Fairfield Merlin Stages Rally. Formerly known as the Peter Lloyd Rallying Stages, which was voted the best event in the 2017 Welsh Tarmacadam Rally Championship, the single-venue event will take place at the Welsh Motorsports Centre as scheduled on Sunday 21 October. The partnership marks a new relationship with John Morgan and his family who are heavily involved in motorsport from their base near Bridgend. A former rally winner at Pembrey, Morgan is looking towards the event as an overdue opportunity to compete there again.
