JD WELSH PREMIER LEAGUE @ MOTION FINANCE STADIUM BASTION GARDENS
28 OCTOBER 2017 --- 2.30PM
|BASTION GARDENS HOME OF PRESTATYN TOWN|
Having secured a constant passing glance that as the week wore on became a stare at this fixture it finally came down to being my Welsh debut for this season at Bastion Gardens home of Prestatyn Town a club I first visited a few seasons ago but always had down for a revisit. Their form this season with a young set of lads, that gained promotion from The Huws Gray League last season as champions, has been inconsistent but following a fantastic 4-2 victory in their last outing versus Bangor the enthusiasm grew. The overall feeling was that a Welsh trip would do me good and the only down side was the weather was forecasting strong winds there was that alright and on arrival at just short of 1.30pm it was raining sharply too. Time was tight today so there was to be no re visit/climb to the excellent viewing point at Gwaenysgor well worth a walk up but don't forget the defib and oxygen. Equally there was no time or point really visiting the seafront which is about 200 yards away from the ground, being a fairly low slung ground protected by little from behind one goal to a small shallow stand pitch length on one side we would suffer with the wind all afternoon!
