Sunday will see WPL football head to the capital city of Wales in Cardiff after an absence of several years. Not too far away of course Cardiff City the Bluebirds recently had an experience of football in the English premiership but this is all about the Welsh Premier League and specifically Cardiff Met who will be flying the flag for the city tomorrow. Bala Town will be the visitors rolling into town and will provide stern opposition for the Met.
The Met will be hoping that followers of the Bluebirds can adopt them as their second team and head over to Cyncoed to support them when the Bluebirds are not playing. The Met are currently bottom of the league are into uncharted waters but gave a good account of themselves at Airbus UK Broughton on the opening day of the season despite going down to a 1-0 defeat and will be looking to push on in front of their home supporters and secure the three points.
Bala Town will be the visitors and looking to consolidate and improve on their current 6th place league position. Bala secured a draw on the opening day of the season away at Newton and will be looking to spoil the Met’s historic day. Certainly Will Fuller in the Met goal can expect to be tested on Sunday and it promises to be a great occasion.
Cardiff Met as we know them today has resulted due to teams merging and name changes over the last decades but of course the old Inter Cardiff once graced the Konica League of Wales as it was known. In In 2000, Inter Cardiff merged with Cardiff Metropolitan University (UWIC) to form UWIC Inter Cardiff F.C and the rest as they say is history.
So why not set your Sat Nav to Cyncoed and head over as the WPL returns after an absence of several years. Its a great standard of football and who knows you may end up tuning into the Met results and returning back and supporting the WPL in the locality.
