Bargod Rangers v Maesglas

10.15am  9 March 2014

Ceredigion League, Division One
Bargod Rangers 3 Maesglas 3 (att 238)

After a pleasant overnight stay in Newcastle Emlyn it was a short drive to reach Bargod's home ground in time for a 10.15 kick off (early enough to allow the hop's final match, at Ffostrasol, to be completed before the Six Nations rugby later in the afternoon).

Any fears that an early start, after a Saturday night, might mean some sluggish action on the pitch were quickly dispelled. Bargod went ahead after just a couple of minutes, and the sides then traded goals in a great first half which ended with the visitors 3-2 in front.

The second half was never likely to live up to the first in terms of goals, but the entertainment continued with Bargod netting a deserved equaliser and the teams finishing level.

Bargod isn't a place, at least as far as I can tell, but the club plays at Parc Puw in Drefach Felindre, just over the border from Ceredigion into Carmarthenshire. It has the feel of a proper football ground, with a pavilion in the far corner and advertising boards attached to a wooden fence along the far side.
