Cardiff City And Swansea City Given Hope Of Fans Return For Derby Clash With Key Meeting Next Week

Welsh football fans could return – in small numbers – for the clash between Cardiff City and Swansea City on December 12. There have been no fans in stadia in Wales since March, but the picture could now change in time for the Welsh derby when Neil Harris’s Bluebirds host Steve Cooper’s Swansea City side next month. Meetings are scheduled between the Welsh Government and the football clubs for the early part of next week to discuss opening up football and rugby stadia in Wales on the back of Boris Johnson’s announcement that fans can return in England.

"Pross" . . . The Bulldozer Driver Who Built A Rugby Empire At Pontypool

Ray Prosser, who died earlier this week at the age of 93, was more than just a player and a coach. As Peter Jackson recalls, he was a philosopher, educator and sociologist, when he wasn’t driving a bulldozer for a living. Monday, January 20, 1975 – training night at Pontypool RFC in readiness for the next match: home to Glamorgan Wanderers on Saturday. Graham Price rolls up along with everyone else, unmoved at the praise showering over him since the climactic end to his Test debut in Paris a little more than 48 hours earlier.

Swansea City's Freddie Woodman Says His Team Are Now Muscled Up For The Fight

Freddie Woodman believes Swansea City have shown they are capable of muscling up this season which has given them a new identity. Having nurtured a long time reputation as a passing team, Swansea have sometimes been undone in recent seasons by more physical sides and they had a clear previous weakness at set-pieces. But the Swans goalkeeper reckons his team now possess brawn as well as brains as they target promotion in a brutally demanding season.

Neil Harris Insists He Has No Fears Over His Cardiff City Job As Performances - If Not Results - Have Been Excellent

Wales Set To Ignite Josh Navidi Comeback As Fireworks Planned For England

Neil Jenkins has predicted fireworks when Wales host England on Saturday, a fiery encounter into which Josh Navidi looks likely to be pitched for his comeback game. Wales kicking coach Jenkins – a veteran of Wales-England clashes going back to 1991 – has admitted he expects the clash to generate a bit more heat than what has so far been a low temperature Autumn Nations Cup. That could be, in part, down to the chilling effect of no crowds and although the Parc Y Scarlets venue will be empty, Jenkins insists the thermometer will rise when the old enemies face off.

Jade Jones Strikes Silver In Croatia On Her Fight Return

Cardiff City, Swansea City And Others Wait For Welsh Government Green Light On Fans

Welsh sports clubs hoping to get fans back into their stadiums will have to wait whilst the Welsh Government assesses the plans announced in England. Football and rugby clubs across Wales have been denied any gate income – and a match day atmosphere - since March when the gates were closed due to the pandemic. But in England, officials have welcomed the UK Government's decision to allow a limited number of spectators back into venues in lower-risk areas when their second lockdown ends next week.
