KINGFISHERS HELD IN THEIR NEW NEST

SATURDAY 16th AUGUST: Penypound Stadium, dry, cloud, sunny spells and a cool breeze.
MONMOUTH TOWN 1 CARDIFF MET. UNIVERSITY 1 (Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Div 1)

Domestic football returns, on a pleasant mid-August day - somewhat drier and warmer than some of the opening days I can remember. Welsh League Division 1 champions Monmouth have been scheduled to face the Division 2 champions, the students of Cardiff Met, an interesting fixture in itself, but made even more so by Monmouth's controversial move to Penypound Stadium, Abergavenny over the summer.

While the relocation of any football club is bound to be controversial, and we all have misgivings about the 'franchising effect', I do find it hard to oppose this one. The Kingfishers were unable to upgrade their facilities in their home town and any thoughts of continuing this club's rise would have to be abandoned if they'd stayed there. Welsh League clubs have come in for some heavy criticism for lack of ambition recently... so here's one showing real ambition and taking a gamble: sixteen miles down the road, Penypound, one of our iconic old grounds, had lacked a senior tenant for well over a decade and its future was uncertain.

FOUR INTO THREE....

SATURDAY 19TH APRIL: Old Road, sunny.
BRITON FERRY LLANSAWEL 1 CARDIFF METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY 3 (Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Div 2)
Easter Saturday, and not a day for attempting long trips by rail or road, so a game of significance in south Wales is needed: and Division 2 of the Welsh League obliges, with a head-to-head encounter between two of the four sides chasing three promotion places. Four into three definitely won't go - something has to give.

REASON NUMBER 11

SATURDAY 29th MARCH : The Sportsground. Sunny and mild.
MONMOUTH TOWN 3 CAERAU ELY 0
Earlier this week a tourist website published a list of "Ten reasons to visit Monmouth", following a Sunday Times report that placed the town in the top three of places to live in Britain. None of the ten reasons mentioned football (the Welsh tourist agencies still don't seem to get the attraction of our football), but my reason for visiting Monmouth today is all about Monmouth Town FC. The Kingfishers are very much in the running for their first ever Welsh League title and with nine games left, their fate is in their own hands.
