Ryan Taylor has two goals in his locker already for Newport County, but his real target is promotion to League One. The County striker delivered on his promise to build on his debut goal at Scunthorpe as he hammered home the winner on his League debut for Newport in their 2-1 win over Barrow at Rodney Parade. The former Plymouth man bagged a disputed goal in the 1-1 draw against the Iron, but there was no disputing his claims to a rasping shot from the edge of the Barrow area after Sam Hird had gifted him the ball in a defensive howler.
Welsh 100m champion Sam Gordon continued his return from injury with a win at the Sprints Open event held in Cardiff on Saturday.

Gerwyn Price says he is ready to bring his A game to his bwin World Series of Darts quarter-final on Sunday as he aims for a 15th straight win. The 35-year-old faces Nathan Aspinall in the last eight in Salzburg in a tournament which has seen fans returning to the arena.
Scarlets coach Glenn Delaney was left wondering what might have been after his side blew two great chances in the final 15 minutes to notch a first win in Toulon. The Welsh region followed the Dragons in bowing out at the quarter-final stages of the European Challenge Cup as they were beaten 11-6, but it could have been different. Steff Evans lost out in a foot race with opposite number Gabin Villiere as he was hauled down five metres short after a sprint from half-way and then replacement centre Tyler Morgan knocked on as he was being driven over from a close range line-out.
Tesni Evans reached the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Manchester Open after coming through another hour long battle. The Rhyl-based player, seeded seven for the event, beat England's No 9 seed Alison Waters.
