My Final Interview, For The Game That Never Was

I sat down with The New Saints’ head coach, Anthony Limbrick, this week, as we looked ahead to the Boxing Day game against Cefn Druids.

Although the Welsh Government had already announced that no fans would be allowed at sporting events, the match would still go ahead, albeit behind closed doors.

Since then, however, the Football Association of Wales has postponed the festive fixture calendar, with a review in January.

So, although I was expecting post-match interviews on Boxing Day, and another press conference ahead of the January 1 game, this has proved to be my final football interview of 2021.

We also had the same situation this time last year, with football suspended in Wales, although we did go on to finish the season in the spring.

My first interview of 2021, incidentally, was with The New Saints’ manager at the time, Scott Ruscoe, as we sat down in the technical area at Park Hall just a few days into January.
