November 28 Wingmakers win 3 in a row
Airbus made it 3 wins in a row in the league with a 1-0
win at Porthmadog, and a 3rd clean sheet in those 3 games.
We are now closing in on 7th place.
Unfortunately Jiws was unable to mark his 400th league
game with a goal. That honour today fell to Mark Allen who
scored the games only goal on 67'.

November 25 Ryan Edwards sent off as 9 man Wales draw with N Ireland
The Wales Semi Professional team had to settle for a point
in their opening International Challenge Trophy match in
Shamrock Park, Belfast this evening.
The young Welsh side battled tirelessly with nine-men
after Neath's Sean Cronin and Airbus UK's Ryan Edwards
were shown straight red cards by local referee Stephen
The Reds made a great start when Haverfordwest striker
Jack Christopher scored a clinical header from a dangerous
Scott Barrow corner after just three minutes. Shortly
afterwards, Steven Cann made an excellent save from
ex-Wrexham winger Michael Carvill. Christopher then
overstretched a hamstring and was replaced by Craig Moses
on fifteen minutes and it was the sub who scored the Welsh
second. Captain Craig Jones made a trademark break down
the right and his centre was laid on a plate for Moses to
tap home on 24 minutes.
Just three minutes later, the hosts responded with an
excellently struck free-kick from Daryl Fordyce into the
top left corner. Cronin was dismissed on 34 minutes on his
debut when the assistant referee saw an off-the-ball
incident. Wales had two excellent chances to extend their
advantage, but Craig Moses and Curtis McDonald squandered
Ryan Edwards was sent off on 70 minutes for handling on
the line and from the resulting penalty Stephen Cann saved
excellently from Carvill. The Irish continued to exert
pressure and despite having another ex-Wrexham player Rob
Garrett sent-off for a second bookable offence, they
equalised at the death when Jay Magee tapped in at the far
post at a corner when Wales couldn't clear their lines.
It was a disappointing end to the night for the
courageous Welsh side, who deserved more, but for some
indifferent decisions by the home referee.

21 Newtown match summary The Wingmakers are looking good for 3 points with a
1-0 lead over Newtown at half time courtesy of Carl Owen
goal on 35'. Never a comfortable scoreline to lead by a
single goal, so Danny Desormeaux put the home fans at ease
on 88' making it Broughton 2-0 Newtown, 3 points in the
bag? Game over and 3 points for the Wingmakers. It was
a very good day for Airbus at the Airfield and elsewhere
in the league. All the teams below us who cold have caught
us all lost, Carmarthen delivered the biggest upset losing
at home to Porthmadog 3-1, Bangor City lost at Victoria
Road 2-1 against Port Talbot, and Bala losing at Prestatyn
last night and Haverfordwest losing at home to Llanelli.
We now have the luxury of a 4 point cushion over the next
team below us (and also a 4 point gap to the team directly
above us). The only disappointing thing about today
was the size of the crowd at the Airfield, just 114 turned
up to watch.
Broughton line up: K Rogers, R

20 Delay on Football Trust grant News on the new stand is that the Football Trust who
give out the grant aid have postponed their decision until
the New Year on if, or not we will get any funding which
is a disappointment as we would have liked to crack on
with developments to bring the seating up to the minimum
500 seats required for the Domestic Licence.
20 Representative match at the Airfield
This coming Tuesday there is a representative match
here at the Airfield with a 7.30pm kick off when an Under
18’s from NEWFA will play NWCFA. There will be no
admission charge for this game.
Airbus slip to 8th following today's
win for Port Talbot at Caersws
Port Talbot were 2-1 winners
at the Rec with goals from Liam McCreesh in the 1st minute Matt Prosser drew
the home side level on 4' and Drew Fahiya got Port's winner on 14'. the 3
points was enough to move them above Airbus into 7th place.
In the other games Rhyl
drew 0-0 at home to Llanelli in front of a disappointing crowd for them 589,
the point was enough to reclaim top spot from Neath, while Llanelli remain
The mid-table battle
between Carmarthen and Bangor City ended all square at 2-2 Carmarthen twice
took the lead through Tim Hicks and Nicky Palmer, but Bangor level each time
with goals from Jamie Reed and Marc Limbert.
The battle at the bottom
saw Welshpool earn all 3 points over winless and bottom club Porthmadog, 2
goals in quick succession in the 59' and 61 was enough for Welshpool 2nd win
of the season.
6 Airbus get revenge for cup defeat
Wingmakers broke another hoodoo tonight, by beating The Nomads for the first
time at the Airfield in the welsh premier league.
And they did it in style winning by 4-0. After a goalless
first half Carl Owen put us 1-0 on 51' 5' later Matty Cook
doubled the lead, following recent games when we have let
a two goal slip I have expected Nomads score two goals,
but defender Rhys Roberts put that fear to bed by scoring
the 3rd on 67'.
And just for good measure sub Gary
McConnell made it 4-0 with 3' left of normal time to see
off Nomads in emphatic style, and our 4 goals tonight
makes us the 2nd highest scorers in the league with 25,
just 1 behind Rhyl. The 3 points see's Airbus move up to
7th in the table until at least 4:30 tomorrow.

6 Airbus boss ready for Nomads Wingmakers boss Craig Harrison is ready to bring some changes to his
starting XI, but he doesn’t believe there are any benefits to last week’s
Welsh Cup exit.
asked if the result now frees his side up to concentrate on the league,
Harrison said: “It always makes me laugh when I hear that, because me being
me – whether it is just a crazy football quote or whether people actually
think that, I don’t.
“I’m actually gutted we’re
out and we could concentrate on the league just as much as if we were still
in the cup. So it’s something people sometimes say as an excuse to paper
over the cracks.”
Nomads boss Mark McGregor
said “After we played on Saturday, I said to the lads ‘Make sure you’re all
up for next week’s game because they’re going to be thinking they want to
avoid another defeat against local rivals, so they’re going to be gunning
