SHAKIN’ STEVENS AT BRENTFORD WIN
This week saw City score in the last minute to beat Brentford 3-2 at Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday, ahead of Friday’s frustrating away defeat to Birmingham.
Gracing the pitch on Tuesday evening was platinum-selling music icon Shakin' Stevens, as he promoted his charity single Echoes of Merry Christmas Everyone. The single is a reworking of his classic Christmas hit, and was recorded in support of the Salvation Army, who also joined 'Shaky' at Cardiff City Stadium.
