SATURDAY 28TH DECEMBER : Ynysangharad Park, weather calm and dry.
PONTYPRIDD TOWN 2 BRIDGEND STREET 0 (Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Div 3)
Having missed out on Boxing Day football, the Saturday between Christmas and New Year brings a return to normal transport schedules and a reasonably full fixture list. Except that the weather intervenes and reduces that to a very limited fixture list, storms leaving many of the grass pitches of south Wales waterlogged. With several target matches lost, it comes down to questions of "what's on?", "what's reachable?" and "shall I bother?" As for the answers: a few definitely on in the Welsh League, but limited reliable info from the minor leagues, Pontypridd is reachable, and with the sun coming out at lunchtime, the lure of football and fresh air wins over warmth and the Welsh National on TV.

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...).
