CEFN DRUIDS climbed into the top-six by extending their club record Cymru Premier winning streak to four games with a 1-0 victory over Barry Town United.

Having beaten Caernarfon, Carmarthen and Penybont in recent weeks, Druids made it four wins in a row courtesy of Charley Edge’s third minute effort.

The game threatened to turn Barry’s way when Ryan Kershaw was shown a straight red card just four minutes into the second period, but Druids held firm to pocket a crucial three points.

Sporting director Huw Griffiths was delighted with his side’s display, saying: “Barry were not in the contest in the first-half because we were that good.

“We could have scored two before Charley did put us ahead and it’s the best we’ve started a game this season.

“We were exceptional in the first-half and we were exceptional in the second-half with a man less. The workrate off the ball was fantastic.”

Druids shrugged off the loss of midfielder Kershaw for a “reckless” challenge to keep their high-flying visitors at bay.

Griffiths, who was already without key trio Alec Mudimu, James Davies and Ramirez Howarth, continued: “It was a stupid challenge.

“We were disappointed not to be further ahead a half time and Ryan has got himself sent-off.

“It meant we had a battle on our hands and he has to learn to control his emotions.”

But Druids did hold firm to make it 12 points from a possible 12 and climb into the top-half of the table for the first time this term.

“The atmosphere has changed around the club,” said Griffiths. “It’s vibrant at the moment and a good place to be.

“The players have been exceptional, they deserve all the credit for breaking more records for Cefn Druids.

“This is the same group that qualified for Europe and reached the top-six for the first time and now they’ve broken the record for consecutive wins.

“I think the record was two before this season, so the boys continue to do themselves and the club proud, and we look forward to next week.”
