I’ve enjoyed The New Saints FC’s pre-season campaign (1-6 in the link) and that came to an end today, with a game against Liverpool FC’s U-23s at The Academy.
I can’t mention the score, due to Football Association of Wales rules on behind-closed-doors friendlies. Nevertheless, as he said in the post-match interview, Scott Ruscoe was more than happy with today’s performance.
It wasn’t a new ground, as I’ve seen TNS play the Liverpool U-23s there before. With two new ticks from the six games I’ve been at to date, though, I’m pleased with that.
One of the benefits of working in the beautiful game is that you get to go to places that ordinarily would be out of bounds.
That’s been the case with all my matches so far this season, they’ve all been strictly no general public allowed.
