In November 1986, Ton Pentre played in the First Round proper of the FA Cup. The Bulldogs were drawn against Cardiff City and the south Wales derby brought the BBC and their famous commentator, Tony Gubba, to Ynys Park.
Following an appeal across the official Ton Pentre Twitter feed and Facebook page, Neil Cotton from Neath responded to the request and has supplied us with the footage of the feature and the goals from the match.
The Bulldogs lost 4-1 to Cardiff City, whose team included Welsh internationals Alan Curtis and Terry Boyle. Curtis, who is the current Swansea City Assistant Manager, originally hails from Ton Pentre so it was a homecoming of sorts for the striker.
Ton Pentre went into the changing rooms at half-time 2-1 down with current Assistant Manager Gareth Bees netting in front of the home crowd.
This truly is some great footage and we sincerely thank Neil Cotton for keeping his promise and supplying it to us for fans of Ton Pentre, Cardiff City and Welsh football in general to enjoy.
