Newtown AFC 0 The New Saints FC 2. An Invitation To Groundhoppers.

Whether working or pleasure, you can’t beat live football and although I’ve been to Latham Park on numerous occasions, like every other game that I attend, it’s always something that I look forward to.

My last two matches (both this week) have been groundhopping ones, this time round though it was a working one. I was there three hours before kick-off and captured lots of video footage of individual TNS FC players arriving (below), in the dressing room, pre-match preparation and coming out on the pitch prior to kick-off.

Then, following the final whistle, there were interviews with manager, Scott Ruscoe, and goalkeeper, Paul Harrison. By the time I got home it was the early hours of the morning, but as any football fan will tell you, that’s all part and parcel of the beautiful game. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

This was MD21 in the JD Cymru Premier, and the three points for the reigning champions ensures that we remain at the top. It’s close at the moment and there’s a massive game next week, with Connah’s Quay Nomads the opponent, but for now, it’s all about enjoying the win at Latham Park.

The lead image was taken at half-time as I interviewed Richie and Dan. They are groundhoppers from Cardiff and I noticed on Twitter (as they tagged TNS FC in) that they were at the game.

I replied to their tweet, inviting them on the radio for a chat and that’s what we did during the break. They were both great, by the way, and came over really well.

They now have an invitation to visit us at Park Hall for a game. Are you a groundhopper? If so, and you take in a fixture, let me know and I’ll give you a guided tour of the stadium prior to kick-off.

You will get to go behind-the-scenes and meet players etc. If, like me, you are a blogger then it will certainly give you some great content for your site. Plus, we can get you on TNS Radio for a chat as well. I look forward to hearing from you. Contact:
