WHEN WINNING ISN'T ENOUGH (1)

FRIDAY 16TH MAY: Sully Sports Ground - mild and pleasant evening
CARDIFF COSMOPOLITAN 2 CEFN CRIBWR B.C. 1; DYNAMO ABER 8 GLYNCORRWG 0 (SWFA Play off tournament)
A lovely late spring evening and there are few nicer spots to spend it than Swanbridge / Sully between Penarth and Barry. This is the venue used by the South Wales FA for their play-offs for promotion to level 6 of the pyramid, which means local 'district league' champions seeking promotion to the South Wales Amateur or Senior Leagues.

DREAM CWM TRUE

SATURDAY 5TH APRIL: Rhiw'r Ddar, drizzly
CWM WELFARE 2 CADOXTON BARRY 1 (South Wales FA Senior Cup semi-final)
Of all the months of the football season, April is the one when we're spoiled for choice every week for games to watch that actually mean something to both sides - and today is typical. Aside from some important league games, there are the semi-final games in the Welsh Cup, and if one of those had been easier to reach today, I'd be watching it. As it is, Broughton in north-east Wales and the late kick-off at Newtown mean they demand too much investment in time and effort.

But there are also some semi-finals closer to home. OK, it's not the Welsh Cup, it's the South Wales FA Senior Cup - but any semi-final is entertaining because of what's at stake for the players. One semi pits Amateur League against Senior League, whereas the other sees underdogs Cadoxton Barry (Senior League Division Two) up against in-form Cwm Welfare, from a Division higher. And, with convenience the watch-word today, it's the latter I've chosen to watch, at the eminently convenient venue of Taff's Well FC, a ten minute stroll up from Taff's Well station.
