Snapshots - Newtown FC

Carmarthen Town vs Tampere United. Intertoto Cup 1st Round 2nd Leg, 24 June 2006, Latham Park. Score 1-3.  Attendance 325
While 50,000 obnoxious drunken stockbrokers from Surrey chucked plastic tables and chairs around in Stuttgart under the pretext of “going to watch football”, for the true fan there was only one place to be on Saturday 24/06/06 - Latham Park, Newtown, Powys for the Intertoto Cup First Round Second Leg between Carmarthen Town & Tampere United of Finland. The Finn’s had a 5-0 lead from the away leg, and Welsh hopes of an improbable turnaround were undone as Ville Lehtinen scored the first of a hat-trick after just 8 minutes. Eventual score on the day 1-3, crowd 325 (many ground hoppers!) The Finns are in Blue, Carmarthen in Old Gold / Black. I sadly failed to get a good picture of the Welsh flag with the slogan ‘Sheep Sh*ggers’ proudly emblazoned on it! NM
