The Lower Mountain

SATURDAY 18th NOVEMBER. Argoed Sports Ground, sunny and cold.
MYNYDD ISA SPARTANS 4 KNIGHTON TOWN 1 (FAW Trophy Round 4)

The risk of adverse weather generally puts me off long journeys in November, but with a decent forecast for north-east Wales, after a quiet week, I'm fairly confident in sticking to my original, tentative, choice from the Trophy 4th Round draw - a first-ever visit to Mynydd Isa, whose ground I missed out on when the previous club played Cymru Alliance football there, a decade ago.

The 1.30 kick off dictates an early start: in fact, to be safe, a VERY early start. There's enough slack in my schedule today, and enough alternative routings, not to worry about the inevitable disruptions on the trains. I make it to Wrexham in time for a connection to Buckley and a leisurely hour's stroll across town and up Pren Hill to Mynydd Isa. As the names imply, it's not all flat, but they do seem to be a tad modest with their names around here: on the way I passed Little Mountain, and now I'm at Mynydd Isa meaning 'Lower Mountain'.
