Behind-the-media-scenes and it’s a big shock for The New Saints plus memorabilia from the game against Barry Town United

Ahead of the JD Cymru Premier MD3 game between The New Saints and Barry Town United, there was the match preview and programme column to write and the press conference with head coach, Craig Harrison.

The game itself saw a well-organised Barry Town United soak up the constant pressure in the first-half and it was 0-0 at the break.

When The New Saints went 2-0 up, courtesy of Adam Roscrow and Jordan Williams, and we were in the final ten minute of normal time, it was looking good.

However, a goal five minutes from the end and another in 90+6 meant the visitors secured a point.

The New Saints remain unbeaten though and are still top of the table.

Following the final whistle, there were interviews with Craig Harrison and Jordan Williams.

The final media act was to write the five talking points article.

As always, I recorded a behind-the-media-scenes video.

This was my 14th game of the 2023/2024 season.

My memorabilia collection increased with a team sheet signed by Jordan Williams (MOTM) and a signed programme (Josh Daniels the cover boy).
