Welsh Football Remembers The Fallen, As Bala Town Hosts The New Saints FC

Although this was the tenth JD Cymru Premier game of the season for TNS, the visit to Maes Tegid to take on Bala Town, was actually MD5.

This was due to the previous match being abandoned, due to a floodlight failure, with a 2-2 scoreline at the time.

Come the final whistle on this occasion, it was still deadlock, as it ended 1-1, with the five-point gap between the sides at the top of the table continuing.

When Ben Clark scored with his first touch, after coming on as a substitute in the second-half, it looked good for The New Saints.

However, the lead didn’t last very long, as a Chris Venables header found the back of the net to bring the Lakesiders back into it.

It was a high energy affair, with both sides looking to stamp their authority from the off. Both had chances and in the end I would say, speaking objectively, that a draw was a fair result.

Before kick-off, as it was the day before Remembrance Sunday, there was a bugler playing the Last Post, a wreath laid on the centre-spot and a silence.

There is no set procedure in Welsh football and I’m glad Ruth Crump, the Bala Town secretary, told me beforehand, as it meant I was able to film the pre-match events.

This was my 25th game of the season.
