SATURDAY 21ST DECEMBER: Jenner Park, mild and dry
BARRY TOWN UNITED 3 LLISWERRY 0 (Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Div. 3)
When the fixture lists were published back in the summer, my choice of game for today was written into my diary: this is the day that my childhood home team, AFC Wimbledon, come closest to my adult home, playing away to Newport County. And until 12.25 today, it was as simple as that. No need to check any other fixtures. The news that the game had been called off was unexpected - after all, it hadn't actually rained during the morning. County have obviously brought their dodgy drainage to Rodney Parade from Spytty.

SATURDAY 14TH DECEMBER: Coronation Park: overcast with a cold, swirling wind.
NEWPORT CORINTHIANS 3 PANTEG 4 (Gwent County League Division One)

It's one of those weekends dominated by league action, rather than cups, and I scour the fixtures for top of the table games. And the Gwent County League obliges, with a meeting of 2nd v 3rd - the home side Newport Corries, who won the second division last season, a club I've had a mind to revisit this season. Partly because their ground, Coronation Park, sits right next to a gem of south Wales's industrial and social heritage.

SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER: Jenner Park. Drizzly.
RHOOSE 1 BALA TOWN 6 (Welsh Cup Round 3)
The last 32 of the cup - fifteen ties to choose from (the sixteenth having been played on Friday night); but I'm not able to head off on a long journey this week, so the choice is narrowed down to two south Wales ties, Aberdare v Prestatyn, Rhoose v Bala.

SATURDAY 30TH NOVEMBER: The Marstons Stadium: dry, sunny and cold
AFAN LIDO 2 ABERYSTWYTH TOWN 1 (Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League)

Time to renew acquaintance with our national league, after weeks of watching cup football: and lo, I'm spoiled for choice today, a grand total of TWO Welsh Premier games in south Wales (well, if you stretch a point and count west Wales as south...).

SATURDAY 23RD NOVEMBER: Ynys Park (Cwmavon Road): cold and sunny.
TREFELIN B.G.C. 5 CWMFELIN PRESS 2 (FAW Trophy Round 4)
Round 4 of the Trophy and a fair selection of ties to choose from on this fine, crisp November Saturday. Games between teams who don't usually meet hold extra interest and hence it's the South Wales v West Wales encounter in the Afan Valley that I'm heading for. After negotiating my way through the seemingly inevitable confusion over kick-off time (the FAW website is wrongly stating 2pm, when it's actually 1.30), I head off before noon for the simple journey west.
