Merthyr in seventh heaven

Merthyr Town completed their return to Penydarren Park on Saturday with a 7-1 win over visitors Odd Down in front of 513 jubilant fans. Penydarren Park was looking excellent for the return of semi-professional football to the town, the Trust's army of volunteers had worked tirelessly through the summer to make sure that the old ground was back to its best.

The Martyrs hit the cup trail on Saturday with the visit of Bitton to Merthyr for an Extra Preliminary Qualifying FA Cup tie.

In other news Merthyr Town will return to the Welsh Cup with a home draw against Caerau.
