SATURDAY 29th NOVEMBER: Canal Park, sunny and dry.
TIGER BAY 0 CAERSWS 4 (WELSH CUP Round 3)
Welsh Cup Third Round day - a highlight of the season. When the giants of the Welsh Premier League enter the fray, joining the survivors from the early rounds, always a mixed contingent of clubs from various regional competitions, and usually a couple of real 'minnows'. And they don't come any more minnow than Tiger Bay of the Cardiff Combination, whose extraordinary achievement in battling through the qualifying rounds and two main rounds is a home tie with Caersws.

SATURDAY 15th NOVEMBER 2014: Celtic Park - bright.
CWMBRAN CELTIC 0 CAERAU (ELY) 2 (FAW Welsh Cup Round 2)
It's finally stopped raining. A downpour overnight leaves enough room for doubt over postponements, but Saturday dawns dry and the forecast is good. I don't plan to look any further than the handful of rescheduled Welsh Cup ties, and I'm inclined to head east where there are three games. By mid-morning, with positive vibes from Cwmbran (if not absolutely definitive), I've made my decision and I'm heading for Celtic Park.

SATURDAY 8th NOVEMBER: Meadow Street, wet and windy.
CORNELLY UNITED 1 GOYTRE UNITED 5 (FAW Welsh Cup - Round 2)
Returning to Wales after five days away, I find that the rainy season has arrived; heavy rain lashes south Wales on Friday evening and overnight, and early on Saturday postponements start to be listed. In the worst of the downpour on Saturday morning, I seriously doubt if any grass pitch will be playable, never mind my chosen Welsh Cup tie at Cornelly. Since the Round 2 draw I've had this game in my sights, a true "magic of the cup"-style fixture with four levels separating the two teams, and a local derby as well.

CHANGE IN THE AIR

SATURDAY 1st NOVEMBER - Richmond Park, wet and windy
CARMARTHEN TOWN 0 BANGOR CITY 2 (Corbett Sports welsh Premier League)
A late change of plan sees me heading west to see if the Premier League's bottom side, Bangor City, can turn the corner with a first win of the season. An interesting fixture, but I hadn't planned to travel far, and had lined up a new venue in the Gwent Amateur Cup, until 10.45 when I discovered that Trethomas Bluebirds haven't actually moved to a new ground-share, as I'd been advised. Plan abandoned - and Carmarthen presents itself as Plan B.

Clubs from every corner of Wales battled today for places in the last 32 of the FAW Trophy, and there were some intriguing inter-league encounters despite the draw still being regionalised. A round-up follows at the end of this piece, but first our featured game - which was a more local affair between two valley clubs from the South Wales Senior League...
