Bragging rights

SATURDAY 22nd APRIL. Parc Afon Twrch, warm and sunny.
CWM WANDERERS 6 YSTRADGYNLAIS 0 (Neath & District League, Premier Division)
We have reached that time of year when every Saturday brings a difficult choice of several 'decisive' match options: cup finals, promotion deciders, title deciders, relegation deciders, all of these are on offer today. And, after due deliberation, I've decided Lower Cwmtwrch is the place to be.

I've been watching the west Wales title races closely, with both Team Swansea and Cwm Wanderers bidding for a Welsh League place, and both having to resist challenges from the reigning champions of Swansea and Neath Leagues respectively. The Neath part of the west Wales equation can be resolved today - Cwm need 3 points to clinch the title, guaranteeing at least a play-off for promotion (or automatic promotion if Team Swansea don't manage to win their league).

To add extra interest, Cwm entertain neighbours Ystradgynlais, who need the points in a fight against relegation. And, the clincher, I've realised during the week that Cwm are playing on a different ground to the one I visited a decade ago.
