Flint Town United suffered a heaviest top flight 10-0 defeat at The New Saints, whose striker Greg Draper netted five times to break the club’s Welsh Premier goal-scoring record.

New Zealand international Draper, who was on 151 goals before the game – two short of Michael Wilde’s club best 153 – vaulted up to 156 in style by going nap.

Jon Routledge (2), Ryan Harrington, Louis Robles and Kwame Boateng added the other goals for the leaders.

Flint’s regular goalkeeper John Danby was forced off injured after 23 minutes with the score at 1-0.

Unfortunate replacement Aaron Jones went on to concede nine goals, but to his credit he made some fine stops as well and the scoreline would have been more severe without him.

Champions Connah’s Quay Nomads were in ruthless form as well, winning 5-0 at Cefn Druids.

Callum Morris notched a hat-trick for the visitors, including a penalty, while the prolific Mike Wilde bagged a brace.

Bala Town suffered a surprise 2-1 home loss against promoted Haverfordwest County.

A Chris Venables penalty handed the Lakesiders a 24th minute penalty, but a Daniel Williams stunner levelled it before the break and a 93rd minute Jack Wilson strike won it for the Bluebirds.

Caernarfon Town triumphed 3-0 at Cardiff Met University, Sion Bradley (pen), Darren Thomas and Cai Jones the Canaries marksmen.

Josh Tibbetts saved a penalty from Met’s Eliot Evans with the score at 0-0.
