Thursday 3rd July 2014, The Book People Stadium, Nantporth. Sun, wind and drizzle.
AIRBUS UK BROUGHTON 1 FH HAUGESUND 1 (UEFA Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, 1st Leg)
While most of the football world is watching and talking about the World Cup (although it's a non-match day in Brazil today), in a number of European football outposts the focus is on European competition. Three of our Welsh teams are in action tonight - Aberysywyth Town and Bangor City away and Airbus at home, although as the Broughton side cannot use their own Airfield ground, nor Wrexham's Racecourse, they're actually playing over 60 miles west of home, at Bangor's ground. Inconvenient for their supporters, and in fact for me too: the logistics of arranging trips to these games, at short notice, during the working week are bad enough, but Bangor is a long way both from home and work. Given more notice (longer between draw and games) I might have managed to arrange a trip to Derry for Aberystwyth's away leg, but Bangor's just about possible, by taking the afternoon off and making a hasty getaway after the game.
