Snapshots - NEWI Cefn Druids AFC

NEWI Cefn Druids vs Haverfordwest County. Welsh Premier League, 12 March 2005, Plaskynaston Lane, Score 0-2.  Attendance 70.

So, 150 grounds up for me. Quite a milestone, really, but how to celebrate? The bottom club in the League of Wales is an option. Not for me a fanfare reception at a pro ground, waving to four disinterested stands from the centre-circle as I accept a signed ball from the local radio breakfast DJ who doubles as matchday announcer. Mind you, I can’t imagine any club offering that (1000 grounds maybe?), so I stick with the trip to the land of my fathers, or more accurately, the land of my maternal grandmothers, for while my old man was born in Bangor, he’s about as Welsh as a minimalist kabuki. My Nan though, proper Welsh. DN
