Podcast 180: Winning At Dominoes 10 – The Welsh Wimbledon

by | Oct 8, 2019

This week’s 200% podcast sees us up to our tenth episode of Winning at Dominoes, and our series of stories from the history of the game this week is our most recent yet. Barry Town were coerced into joining the League of Wales upon its formation by the FAW in 1992 after a year of playing in England at considerable expense. Once they’d got themselves arranged in the Welsh league system, they turned professional and became a complete powerhouse before the money ran out and the club was bought by a man with big plans for the club but little apparent ability to run it as a business without pissing off everyone that he came into contact with. Cue relegations, expulsion, a court case and, eventually, a spectacular rise from the ashes. This podcast wouldn’t have been possible without the invaluable rescource that is the Barry Town United YouTube channel, by the way.

We even now have a Kofi button, so do feel free to feed me stimulants in order to keep me cracking on in a caffeine-fuelled state of delirium until four o’clock every morning, and many thank yous to those of you who have already been generous enough to donate.
