WELSH PREMIER FOOTBALL

First-ever goal

The first-ever goal in the League of Wales was scored by Duncan Andrew of Caersws in a 3-2 defeat at Aberystwyth, but the fastest goal on opening day was scored by Mitch Patton in a 2-1 Afan Lido win over Connah's Quay Nomads, a game which kicked-off 30 minutes later on 15 August 1992.

Magnificent seven

Rhys Griffiths became the first player to score seven goals in a game in Port Talbot Town's 8-2 away win at Afan Lido on 14 March 2014.

Marc Lloyd Williams had previously been the only player to have scored six goals in a Welsh Premier match, achieving the feat twice for Bangor City against Rhayader Town and Llanelli.

First Golden Boot

The league's first Golden Boot winner was Steve Woods of Ebbw Vale, who hit 29 goals from 28 appearances in the inaugural season.
