On arrival at Park Hall, the first thing I noticed was that the Macedonia flag had been replaced by that of Gibraltar. That’s our next home game, as although we say farewell to the Champions League, it’s hello Europa.
I love football, and while television games are fine, you can’t beat a live match. With the Graham Edwards Memorial Trophy in full swing just a few minutes away in Gobowen, I decided to head there after work.
St. Martins dominated the first half, with Llangollen fortunate to be only 2-0 down at the break. As so often happens in football though, if you don’t capitalise on your opportunities it can come back to haunt you.
In this case it wasn’t quite like that, as although they pulled a goal back, the next three all went the way of the Shropshire side as the game ended England 5 Wales 1. It was a well-deserved victory and from a personal perspective, I enjoyed being there.
My last new ground was the national stadium in Skopje, Macedonia, with Gobowen playing fields the opposite end of the spectrum. However, it’s all football and it’s all good. It doesn’t matter what the level of game I’m watching, I always get something from it.
