Canaries end on a high

A very early start, travelling north for a weekend of cup finals. The decision to hold the Welsh Cup final in Bangor on a Sunday means travelling on Saturday anyway, and the Huws Gray Cup final at Conwy fits nicely into the plan.

Train times mean I get to Conwy with several hours to spare - no hardship in a lovely castle town by the sea on a dry, if slightly chilly day. But by 1.30, sightseeing is done and I'm out at the Morfa Ground to the west of the town, along with the early arrivals from Flint and Caernarfon for the Huws Gray Alliance's showpiece final. As a former Welsh Premier ground, the Morfa is well-appointed, although it's a shame the large seated stand behind the town end goal is cordoned off, meaning spectators are confined mainly to the railway side, with its terracing and stand, and the flat standing area at the clubhouse end. But with an attendance in the low hundreds - and many of them kids not really watching the game anyway - it doesn't matter all that much.
