The Welsh Premier League

The Welsh Premier League started in 1992-93, with Cwmbran winning the title. The format changed in 2010-11, when 18 teams became 12 The Super 12, as they're dubbed. The New Saints are the current champions. The Welsh Premier is the only league in Wales that isn't regionalised, leading to some hefty away travelling across the very slow mid-wales roads.

Vincent Tan’s Cardiff City Fiefdom

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

Tomorrow afternoon at The Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff City will play Swansea City for the first time in the top division of English football, and from the outside it looks more than a little as if this match might be a be all and end all. Peering in from the outside, it's not difficult to believe that there has been a something of a sense of "keeping up with the Joneses" about Cardiff's ownership under Vincent Tan, that parity with the hated "Jacks" was worth the changing of the colours, the changing of the flags and the apparent autocracy that now runs the club with an increasingly worryingly hands-on approach.

The 200% Premier League Pre-Season: Swansea City

Twohundredpercent at related • 1 view

It has been, by any stretch of the imagination, an extraordinary last ten years for Swansea City. A new home, the end of a spell of financial misery which threatened the very existence of the club, and a magnificent rise to the Premier League which didn't end upon the club's arrival in the division.

The 200% Premier League Pre-Season: Cardiff City

Between now and the start of the season, we'll be writing up all twenty of the Premier League clubs before it all kicks off again. If you're here looking for transfer gossip, you'll likely be disappointed. Quite asides from anything else, it's the second week in July (a necessity borne of the fact that these have got to be written around work commitments, amongst much else), so most of the transfer rumours circulating at the moment are the result of the fevered imaginations of the sort of fifteen year olds who spend their lives on Twitter pretending to be agents.

All’s Fair in Lovering’s War: Barry Town’s Struggle

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

Nearly ten years ago, Barry Town were celebrating their sixth Welsh Cup win at the expense of Cwmbran Town. This was the third season in succession that they had claimed not just the Welsh Cup, but also the Welsh Premier League title. The end of that very successful era saw a change that would lead the club to a war within and, as it stands today, a fight for their very existence.

The 126th Welsh Cup Final

This has been a season that has seen unprecedented success in Welsh club football for a number of teams playing over the border. Yesterday's play-off final saw Newport County find their way back into the Football League after beating Wrexham at Wembley. This followed an FA Trophy win for Wrexham, a League Cup win for Swansea City and Cardiff City's promotion to the Premier League.
