With the Bluebirds heading into a two-week break as international fixtures are played, City fans will have to wait until 18th October to see the boys in Championship action.

However, as well as on the international stage, there's still plenty of football to be watched during the break, including on Saturday, October 12th – the date of the annual Non-League Day.

Celebrating its tenth year, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side. Prostate Cancer UK is once again the day's official charity partner, providing support for the sixth consecutive season.

Non-League Day 2019 fixtures

To help you make your mind up, here are a few non-league contests with a Bluebirds connection taking place this weekend, both close to home and further afield... 

In the summer, we faced Taff’s Well at Rhiw’r Ddar for the third consecutive season ahead of the beginning of pre-season. This weekend, the Wellmen will be away from home, facing Haverfordwest County in the Cymru South League.

A pair of City Academy loanees will also be in action on Saturday, playing for Weston Super Mare FC. Defensive duo Connor Davies and Dan Martin are on loan with the Seagulls, who face Dorchester Town at the Optima Stadium on Non League Day. Davies played seventy-seven minutes for Weston in their 1-1 FA Cup Third Round Qualifying tie with Kingstonian on the weekend.
