It’s not a bad way to start the working week, on the pitch with professional footballers, and that’s exactly what I did yesterday morning. After a short break, The New Saints FC players and staff were back at Park Hall, as 2018/2019 began with training.
I joined the club right at the start of the 2014/2015 Welsh Premier League campaign and so this is now my fifth season. Whoever said time flies wasn’t joking.
As well as photographs and video footage of training, I also interviewed three of our new signings – Josh Hmami, Joash Nembhard and Kane Lewis. You can see those featured below as well as the selfie with Aeron Edwards, Tom Holland and Simon Spender. Always a selfie.
After a day’s work, still at The Venue I played a couple of back-to-back games in the Monday Night League. First up as a defender in a 4-3 win followed by a game between the sticks. I only went and saved a penalty in the shoot-out that saw us edge through to the semi-final by one goal.
Up at 6.30 a.m. and back home at 11.00 p.m. Welcome to my world indeed.
