Sgorio will broadcast live online from Latham Park on Tuesday night as Newtown welcome Caernarfon in the second round of Cymru Premier fixtures.

Cardiff Met v Haverfordwest | Tuesday – 7.45
Cardiff Met will welcome newly promoted Haverfordwest County to Cyncoed for their first home game of the season following their away day win at Aberystwyth on the opening day of the season.

Oliver Hulbert scored twice in the 2-3 win following his loan move from Bristol Rovers.

Newly promoted Haverfordwest County are yet to play their first fixture, as their home tie against Cefn Druids was postponed on the weekend – thus this fixture is their first back in the topflight since 2015.

Haverfordwest won promotion after finishing second in the Cymru South as league winners Swansea University did not secure a tier one licence.

Newtown v Caernarfon | Tuesday – 7.45 (live online)
After the disappointment of losing to newly promoted Fflint Town (1-0) over the weekend, Chris Hughes’ side will welcome Caernarfon to Latham Park live on Sgorio’s social media channels.

The Robins had a good home record last season losing only three from 12 (v TNS, Bala, Barry) as they finished the season in sixth place.

Manager, Chris Hughes has strengthened his squad with James Davies arriving from Cefn Druids, Jake Phillips and Jordan Davies both arriving from Airbus, with striker Jamie Breese returning after his stint with Caernarfon.

Caernarfon were held to a 1-1 draw at The Oval by Pen-y-bont on the opening day of the season, Mike Hayes scoring on his debut for the home side.

This is Huw Griffiths’ first full season in charge at Caernarfon after joining in February, with the club finishing in 5th last season.

The Cofis beat Newtown twice at the Oval last season, with Newtown winning 3-1 at Latham Park.

Penybont v Aberystwyth Town | Tuesday 7.45

Penybont v Aberystwyth Town | Tuesday 7.45
A good start to the season for Pen-y-bont as Mael Davies scored on his debut to secure an away point at The Oval in a 1-1 draw with Caernarfon.

After finishing their first season in the Cymru Premier one place above the relegation places, manager Rhys Griffiths will want to challenge for a place in the play-offs this season.

Griffiths has signed Sam Snaith, former Cardiff Met forward to bolster his attacking options, with former Wales C and Bala Town goalkeeper, Ashley Morris also arriving at the KYMCO Stadium.

A disappointing opening day for Aberystwyth, losing 2-3 to Cardiff Met at Park Avenue.

Gavin Allen is the Aberystwyth manager this season after spells as a player and assistant at the club.

Allen scored 93 league goals for the Seasiders before assisting former managers Neville Powell and Matthew Bishop.

Pen-y-bont won the last meeting between the sides, Lewis Harling scoring the only goal in a 1-0 at Park Avenue.

highlights of the second round of Cymru Premier fixtures will be shown on Wednesday night at 10 on Mwy o Sgorio
