Behind The Scenes In My Favourite Football Competition

What’s your favourite football competition?

Mine is the Welsh Cup!

Today saw the four quarter-finals played in this season’s Cwpan Cymru – as it is known in Welsh – and I was at The New Saints FC v Guilsfield FC.

With goals from Jon Routledge and Ben Clark, it ended 2-0 to the hosts, who are the holders of the trophy.

There is plenty of behind-the-scenes footage in the video below, giving media insight into what goes on.

I went with Keston Davies and Declan McManus, after they finished their table tennis game and visited the Fanzone.

It was great to have Isaam and his family with us from south-west Wales.

His mom, Lowri, had contacted me last week saying he wanted to see The New Saints play, as a birthday treat.

I asked who his favourite player was and the answer was Adrian Cieslewicz. That’s the two of them in the lead image.

He got to meet him, along with others.

I love doing that sort of thing. It’s great.

If you have a position of influence, take the initiative and make things happen.

This was my 48th game of the season.
