First Game Of The Season, Great To See Fans Back And A New Ground On My List

The New Saints’ pre-season campaign got underway with a visit to Beech Grove, the home of Ellesmere Rangers.

It was good to get back again, with fans allowed this time as the game was in England, after a full season in Wales with no supporters.

Football is a small world, and there were a number of people there who I already knew, from working in the beautiful game.

Played over 3 x 30 minute segments, instead of the traditional two halves, although TNS had the bulk of possession, it ended 0-0.

Hopefully the Covid-19 situation will improve this season and I’ll be able to visit more games this time round.

During 2020/2021, I was pretty much limited to TNS fixtures, where I was working.

I keep a list of all the matches I go to and they can be viewed via the menu at the head of this page.

I recorded a behind-the-scenes video at Beech Grove, that you can watch here.
