Spar Mid Wales League – Division 1
Bow Street claimed their fourth victory of the season with a midweek win over neighbours Machynlleth in front of a good crowd at Cae Piod.

Bow Street were awarded two penalties within the space of five minutes. Andrew Gittins hit the bar with the first, but Ifan Burrell made no mistake with the second. It was Burrell who added the second goal soon after a quality finish following an excellent through pass from early substitute Ryan Davies.
The second half was similar to the first with the home side continuing to dominate, creating chances but being unable to apply the finishing touches. The suddenly, with 15 minutes to go, Machynlleth engineered a goal following a succession of corners. There followed a nervous few minutes for the home side until Ryan Davies settled the game with his first goal for Bow Street.
Bow Street lie third in the table, and the next league will be against the early leaders Rhayader on September 17th, This weekend they host Carno in the Welsh Trophy Cup competition, with Brecon Corries the visitors on September 10th in the Welsh cup.
