Brecon Town v Llandrindod Wells

2pm  28 October 2012

Radnorshire Cup, Second Round
Brecon Town 0 Llandrindod Wells 7 (att 5)

As expected an easy win for Llandrindod Wells, who scored goals at regular intervals, three before half time and four more after.

Brecon Town are mid table in the Mid Wales South League, the bottom step on the Welsh football pyramid in this part of country, while Llandrindod are riding high a step above in division two of the Mid Wales League.

While the the result wasn't a surprise, the facilities at Brecon's ground were. Many venues in the Mid Wales South League are little more than pitches in farmers' field. Brecon play at the town's leisure centre, which promised something different, but a pitch inside a running track, with a good-sized seated stand, wasn't what I expected.

The facilities owe more to the resident athletics club than Brecon Town, and an adjacent pitchside clubhouse remained closed throughout, but it still had the feel of a "proper" venue. Given that, it was shame that so few people turned up to watch.
