The New Saints FC. As the club I work for, I had this one in the early stages of my involvement. (1)

B36 Torshavn. My first UEFA Champions League game with The New Saints FC, in the Faroe Islands, I went to look at the stadium and happened to meet the club chairman. He took me on a tour and gave me a number of goodies, including this badge. (2)

Newtown AFC. I was given this badge by a supporter of the Robins. (3)

Forfar Athletic v The New Saints FC. TNS FC’s first game in the Irn-Bru Cup, the hosts produced a number of commemorative items, including this badge. Although not exposed to the elements, it hasn’t aged well. (4)

FA Ireland. I had an invitation from the FAI to speak to the top flight clubs, and other individuals, about social media. I really enjoyed my time in Dublin, in January 2017, and along with other various items I was given this badge by the association. (5)

Irn-Bru. Representing The New Saints FC at the draws in Scotland, on one occasion (at the Glasgow Transport Museum), there were badges for those present to take. (6)

FA Wales. I’ve picked up a number of identical badges during my time in Welsh football. This one was from the 2016 Welsh Cup final when The New Saints beat Airbus UK Broughton 2-0. The journalists on the day were given a bag of goodies by the FAW and this badge was in there. (7)

FA Wales. This translates as Welsh Football Society and is another badge that was given to me a fan. (8)

FA Wales. Another one that very kindly came my way courtesy of a Wales supporter. I enjoyed the competition itself and saw several home games in the qualifying group. (9)

UEFA Champions League. Although I have been involved with numerous UEFA games since joining The New Saints FC, I only got this one in January 2020, courtesy of the club’s Finance Director. (10)
