February 2024 proved to be a megamonth of football for me, as I went to nine matches. This is the most I've ever been to in February.
Game 37: Caerau Ely 3-2 Llantwit Major
Reason for going: This was a late decision, when my friend Steve suggested we go. It was a Friday night game and set me up for a 3 game weekend.
Point of interest: Llantwit Major came back from two goals down but were only level for a couple of minutes.
Game 38: Barry Town 0-3 Pontypridd Town
Reason for going: Barry's first game of phase 2 of the Cymru Premier season.
Point of interest: The first goal of the game was calamitous from the home team's point of view. The goalkeeper rushed out and failed to clear the ball leaving the striker free to fire home from the edge of the box.
Game 39: Barry Town Ladies 1-3 Cardiff City Women
Reason for going: I'd been to watch Barry Town Ladies the week before and enjoyed it. So decided to go and watch them as they were hosting the table-toppers.
Point of interest: This was the penultimate game of Phase 1 of the Adran Premier League. Cardiff City were unbeaten up to this point and it was easy to see why. They were a good team. (They lost the following week, though.) This was also the third day in a row I'd been to a football match.
Game 40: Penybont 2-2 Barry Town
Reason for going: Penybont is one of the closest away trips for me.
Point of interest: This was my 100th Barry Town game. I got a Futbology badge.
Game 41: Newport County 1-3 Notts County
Reason for going: My friend Paul is a Notts County fan. Although, for reasons of restricted ticket supply, I ended up in the home end with Paul's wife, Val, instead.
Point of interest: We caught the train to the game. Unlike last time I tried to watch Newport County, this time the train from Cardiff to Newport thankfully didn't go via Reading!!
