WHERE THE LAND LIES IN WELSH LEAGUE DIVISION ONE

Following a lengthy period of bad weather it's easy to forget what's happening in Division One. We provide a recap below.

The Bulldogs have only played three times since 24 October 2015 due to the incredibly poor weather conditions that have affected football right across the country.

With all the postponements and the vast amount of time between matches, it’s easy to forget where everything lies within the Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Division One.

On Saturday, 16 January a few matches were played due to an improvement in weather conditions and because several of the clubs in Division One now boast fantastic 3G facilities at their stadiums.

Saturday’s results are as follows:

Aberdare Town P-P Risca United
Barry Town United 5-1 Afan Lido
Cambrian & Clydach 2-0 Cardiff Met University
Garden Village 0-5 Goytre (Gwent)

The Bulldogs were due to play Taffs Well at Ynys Park, however, the Wellmen’s League Cup match at Goytre United was postponed a week previous and the rules of the competition meant that the teams were forced to rearrange the game for Saturday, 16 January in place of the Bulldogs match.

This is how the Division One Table currently looks:

As you can see, Ton Pentre have played the least amount of matches in Division One with five games in hand over Monmouth Town for example, who are positioned one place above the Bulldogs with just one point more.

There’s not much between any of the teams in the table, apart from Garden Village who are propping everyone else up, and with so much to play for it’s difficult to predict what’s going to happen at both the top and bottom of the table.

Through these lean football times, Bulldogs manager Lee Phillips has been keeping his team well drilled in training by utilising the fantastic facilities at The Sportsyard and recently played a behind-closed-doors training match to maintain the sharpness of the squad.

Phillips is happy that his entire squad, apart from Richard Evans, is fully fit for what will be an intense run-in between now and the end of the season.

Recent signings Scott Hayward and Josh Ryall appear to have settled very quickly into a squad that has also been bolstered by the return of Jamie Bradford, who was unavailable for the first half of the season.

So, there’s going to a hectic but incredibly exciting end to the season and you can find our remaining First Team fixtures below.
