Issue 226 - New Year 2021

WF 226 Cover

PUBLICATION DATE:  18th December 2020

Welsh Football issue 226 brings you a stunning view of Park Avenue at sunset on the front cover, and the inside pages are, as usual, packed with a range of material - something for everyone. 

We review recent action and news on both the international and domestic scenes, and take stock of where this strange 2020-21 season stands at present. We have comment on recent developments in the return to play process. 

Feature articles include a spotlight on Aberfavenny Women FC, and another in our 'Lost Grounds' series, covering the Halfway Ground, Connah's Quay. 

We look at the history of the competition now known as the FAW Trophy, which started out as the FAW Junior Cup. 

We reflect on the effect of the pandemic on football programmes, and review some of the official competition websites around Wales. 

Our series of Looking Back historical articles takes us back 25 years (Barry Town's emergence in the League of Wales), 50 years (midwinter cup and league action from 1970-71), 100 years (domestic and international news from 1920) and 125 years (1895-96). 

As always, this issue can be ordered individually (£3.00) or as the first in an annual subscription. It is always worth contacting us to check on current offers.
