Following an early morning visit to 'The Cut Above' in Brynmawr for the best £4 haircut that money can buy, it was on to the hockey pitch for Abergavenny A against Bridgend ( note the new shorter if not less grey hair!)
Abergavenny took the field with 11 outfield players as our goalkeeper appeared to be AWOL! As centre half it was with a degree of deja-vu that we took to the astroturf expecting a busy defensive afternoon!!!! The result..... rather surprisingly was a 6-1 win with the Bridgend goal coming from a swiftly taken penalty corner. Abergavenny gained a well deserved 3 points and are safely in mid table in South Wales Division3 with one game to go against the team at the foot of the league next weekend.
Following the game and a trip to a local hostelry for the post match I left and looking up was able to see the following intricate pattern being woven in the sky above ( this was not alcohol fuelled!)
It was as you can see an amazing day with wall to wall sunshine again, and St Mary's Priory Church ( known as the Westminster Abbey of Wales) looking magnificent in the mid afternoon.
