Saints complete the Welsh treble

SATURDAY 2nd MAY: Latham Park, chilly and damp.
NEWTOWN 0 THE NEW SAINTS 2 (Tenovus Welsh Cup final)
There's no mistaking the top game in Wales this weekend, the cup final given added interest this year by Newtown's first appearance since 1897 and the decision to depart with recent tradition and hold the final on the ground of one of the finalists. Although it's perfectly possible to watch the game live on S4C, there is no substitute for being there, so I set off early on the train, into England via Hereford and Shrewsbury and back down into mid Wales. I leave Cardiff in steady rain, with a forecast of more, and first impressions on stepping off the train in Newtown are that the wind is even chillier here, but the rain is little more than the odd spot of drizzle. Either way, not the fine spring day we all hope for.
