Unfortunately, there’s no action for the Bluebirds this coming Saturday with the international break taking over. While we are sure you’ll all be focussed on the Wales vs Bosnia-Herzegovina clash in the evening, you still have plenty of opportunities to show support this weekend as ‘Non-League Day’ returns.
After youth football, Cardiff City winger Anthony Pilkington started in non-league with Atherton Colleries before moving onto Stockport County, Huddersfield Town and Norwich City. While the Republic of Ireland international may have never looked back on-field, he certainly remembers those days with fondness.
"ANTHONY PILKINGTON QUOTE REGARDING NON-LEAGUE DAY, HIS BROTHER, ETC."
Over the past few years we've started these 'Non-League Day' promos with our friends at Barry Town United. The Town though, this season, have a rare Saturday afternoon off before travelling to Cambrian & Clydach in Welsh League Division One action on Saturday, 17th October. Bluebirds scholars Elvis Menayese and Jamie Bird both enjoyed a short term loan spell with Barry earlier in the season and we'd like to wish Gavin Chesterfield, Damon Searle and the team all the very best for the rest of the campaign.
If it's a longer trip that takes your fancy, newly reformed Hereford FC are expecting a bumper crowd across the English border for their top-of-the-table clash with fellow Midlands Premier side Long Eaton United. The Bulls currently sit one-point off the summit, while the Blues are three points behind, but with three games in hand. Hereford are yet to have a home attendance less than 2,000 since their reformation, with a superb turn out expected once again at their famous Edgar Street ground.
