Better Late than Never ?

SATURDAY 30th APRIL. The Rock, heavy rain and sunny intervals.
CEFN DRUIDS 0 CAERNARFON TOWN 7 (Huws Gray Alliance)
Three and a half months since I set off to watch the Druids vs. the Canaries in a crucial top-of-the-table Alliance clash, I set off to try again. It would have had bearing on the title race when postponed - frostbound - in January, but it's just as significant today: Caernarfon can clinch the title if they win, whereas - because Caernarfon failed to obtain a Welsh Premier licence - Druids can virtually clinch promotion with three points today. Although, in both cases, they have two more games after today to get the points they need.

It's also a good day to be getting away from Cardiff nice and early, as travel in and through the cty will again be disrupted by a rugby event - this time two regions games in the stadium. What were the marketers on when they dreamed up the ludicrous "Judgement Day" label for a couple of end of season local derbies? Still, like most things WRU, the public seem to swallow it - probably because it's another excuse for an all-day binge.  [article continues - if not visible click "Read More" below]

The Wonders of Wales

SATURDAY 27th FEBRUARY. Clappers Lane, dry and cold.
GRESFORD ATHLETIC 1 HOLYWELL TOWN 0 (Huws Gray Alliance)
After the driest week of the whole winter, at last a weekend when postponements shouldn't be a major concern. Having (mistakenly, as it turned out) abandoned a trip to north Wales last week, I'm keen to make amends this Saturday, with a Huws Gray Alliance fixture my first choice.

Taking advantage of the last chance to use the Arriva Trains Wales fare promotion this winter, I head up from Cardiff to Wrexham on a busy morning service, arriving on time in Wrexham at midday. From there, it's a simple bus journey northwards to Gresford, which lies on the old main road to Chester. I've been to here once before, but that must have been about 25 years ago, when the Clappers Lane ground was pretty much undeveloped. I also can't remember much of Gresford itself, so I use the spare hour to explore. The village has a more remote, rural feel than those to the south of Wrexham, although it shares their mining heritage. There's a small pond, the church - whose bells made it into the old "Seven Wonders of Wales" rhyme - and a handful of shops; also three pubs, none appealing enough to divert me from my stroll. In any case, it's a pleasant afternoon, nowhere near as chilly as the weathermen's warnings of a severe wind-chill suggested.

At half past one it's time to head back to Clappers Lane, and I assume the entrance is from the road of that name. There's a way in (two in fact) here, but it turns out there are two more, hidden in the back streets, and it's one of these that I eventually find manned, with programmes on sale. The football ground is part of a larger recreation area, with bowling greens close behind the goal at the town end, and a cricket square on one side. All this makes access and development a bit of a challenge for the football club, who will need to move the pitch if they are to meet the new level 2 ground criteria in the next couple of years. Unfortunately that will also increase the distance from the modern changing room /clubhouse block which overlooks the field.

Gresford are enjoying a successful first season back in the Huws Gray Alliance, lying seventh ahead of this game, three places and two points behind today's visitors Holywell. Both sides are technically on the fringes of the title race, although the leading pair of Caernarfon and Cefn Druids will take a lot of catching. As befits a game between two successful sides on a fine winter's afternoon, a healthy three-figure crowd has gathered, with plenty of visiting fans in evidence. I suspect they arrive in optimistic mood, their team having suffered only one league defeat since October.

However, the early exchanges are inconclusive: both sides look confident, but the lack of recent games shows with 'rustiness' to blame for some misplaced passes and challenges. Gresford's style of play is attack-minded, with a confident midfield section hitting balls forward for front-runner Alistair Gibson to chase. Nothing quite comes off, though one early Gibson volley is cleared off the line. At the other end, veteran keeper Jon Hill-Dunt has to be sharp to keep out a couple of dangerous Holywell attacks in the first half, though one of these wouldn't have counted anyway, the lineman's flag already up for offside. Half time arrives with no scoring, and the game still anybody's, though I feel Gresford have had slightly the better of the half.

The second period is just as open as the first. It's end-to-end stuff, both teams trying to prise an opening in well-marshalled defences. Holywell seem to be posing more of a threat, but Hill-Dunt is rarely under real pressure as the home side soak up the pressure and launch counter-attacks.

It's all beginning to look like a goal-less draw, though, with the defences on top and the teams cancelling each other out. And, while they're both still searching for a winner, the sides would probably settle for a hard-earned point apiece. Then, three minutes from the end of normal time, Holywell concede a dangerous free-kick just outside the box (by no means the first of the afternoon) and Mike Latham finds a way through the wall and into the bottom corner of Mike Platt's goal. 1-0 to Gresford and Holywell must now step up the pace in search of an equaliser. Despite a generous amount of stoppage time, they can't find it, so Gresford leap-frog them into fifth place in the league table.

What a relief to get back to a 'normal' Saturday! The wonder of Wales today is that it hasn't rained, most games have been played, and my travels not confined to matches on 3G pitches, or worse completely disrupted like last weekend. Is spring maybe just round the corner?
