    A great day out, shame about the result for FC. But what a year! All the best to Colwyn Bay for next year. Hopefully FC to follow you up. FORZA FCUM.

  3. Ian, I have a question about the FAW, the Irate Eight, and Swansea City and Cardiff City…Swansea and Cardiff were never press-ganged into joining the League of Wales like the Irate Eight were. Is this because the FAW knew those two clubs were too big to mess with, and would have initiated lawsuits to prevent the FAW from forcing them into the League of Wales? Or was it simply a fact that Swansea (who were in Football League Division Two at the time) and Cardiff (who were in Football League Division Three at the time) were untouchable because they were safely in the fold of the Football League?
    PS, thanks for this article, it inspired me to make a map of the Welsh clubs playing in English leagues. So I need to get to the bottom of the Swansea/Cardiff immunity from the FAW.
