SATURDAY 20th DECEMBER: Cyncoed Campus, dry with a chilly wind.
CARDIFF MET. UNIVERSITY 5 AFAN LIDO 0 (Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Division One)
The shortest, darkest Saturday of the year, and the travel and weather complications of the season all mean this is no day for attempting ambitious journeys. As luck would have it, there are two attractive fixtures in Cardiff and, baulking at the prospect of bus journeys through the city centre and out west, I choose the closer option - a first visit of the season to Cardiff Metropolitan University, who sit proudly top of the Welsh League and are entertaining Afan Lido, relegated from the Welsh Premier six months ago. Although Lido are struggling, I'm hoping to break my sequence of one-sided games....

SATURDAY 22ND FEBRUARY - The Marstons Stadium: dry, sunny, cold wind.
AFAN LIDO 0 PRESTATYN TOWN 2 (Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League)
It's a Saturday, but not as we know them. It's not raining, and there a only a few reports of waterlogged grounds, so for the first time in 2014 we can look at the fixture list with reasonable confidence that a chosen game will be on.

For me Port Talbot is the obvious place to be this week, as the borough's two Welsh Premier sides are both at home to northern visitors, with staggered kick-off times. In fact, there's a third game, just up the road, where Trefelin entertain Penrhyndeudraeth in the FAW Trophy, but attending that would mean not being able to attend the other two, so I'm going for the Welsh Premier option.

SATURDAY 30TH NOVEMBER: The Marstons Stadium: dry, sunny and cold
AFAN LIDO 2 ABERYSTWYTH TOWN 1 (Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League)

Time to renew acquaintance with our national league, after weeks of watching cup football: and lo, I'm spoiled for choice today, a grand total of TWO Welsh Premier games in south Wales (well, if you stretch a point and count west Wales as south...).
