You Can't Beat a Proper Cup Tie

SATURDAY 12th JANUARY. The Muga, mild.
PLAS MADOC 3 BERRIEW 2 (FAW Trophy Round 5)

For the second week in a row my Saturday morning and evening will be spent travelling up and down the so familiar English border line on Transport for Wales trains. The weather's been unusually peaceful for January and neither trip was threatened by postponement. All good, although last week's outing was a bit of a drag, to be honest: a dull routine league game between two rusty sides, on a dull day in a rather dull place. I didn't write it up as a blog - there just wasn't much to say and I didn't want to waste time re-living it.

But I have higher hopes of today's excursion. For a start, it's the FAW Trophy, and knock-out football tends to produce more drama. Secondly, it's an inter-region game, North East v Central Wales, between teams that haven't met before. Thirdly, the home team, Plas Madoc, are a bit of a sensation - after winning the North East Wales League in only the first season, they're unbeaten so far in the league (Wrexham Area Division One). I'm looking forward to watching them.

The Idyll

SATURDAY 17th NOVEMBER. Leyton's Field, a sunny, chilly autumn day.
TINTERN ABBEY 1 ABERTILLERY EXCELSIORS 7 (Gwent FA Amateur Cup Round 2)

I start most seasons with a short-list of a few grounds I really want to visit; and this year, Tintern Abbey was near the top. For years I had a vague plan to visit some time, but hadn't researched exactly where the football club played. It was only when blogger Laurence Reade posted pictures from a game in January that I truly understood the scenic splendour of this grassroots ground, and that vague plan became a priority. When Tintern got through one round of the county cup, and were drawn at home to Gwent County 'giants' Abertillery Excelsiors, I put the date in my diary and prayed that the weather wouldn't intervene. My prayers seem to have been answered.
