An overnight stay in Cardiff, passing Dilwyn on the way here and when you forget your room number

For the second week on the bounce I’m spending a football-related Friday night stay in south Wales.

Last weekend I was just outside Newport, this time round it’s along the coast and in the capital itself, Cardiff.

Ahead of the game against Cardiff Metropolitan University FC tomorrow, The New Saints players and staff are staying in the Mercure Hotel tonight.

On the way down, we passed within minutes of a village that’s been on my bucket list of places to visit for a year or so.

Dilwyn, in Herefordshire, is where I want to go because that’s the name of my dog.
