Another week in which we played two games, first up was the away trip to Carmarthen Town. Leaving at 10.00 am, I finally arrived back home well into the early hours. Not that I’m complaining though, far from it.
It was great to get the 6-1 win and with Kai Edwards opening the scoring within minutes of the game starting, we certainly had no intention of letting the grass grow under our feet. It was brilliant to see James Jones make his Dafabet Welsh Premier League debut and also Scott Quigley net his first hat-trick for the club.
Quigs was the player we chose for the post-match TNS TV interview, and just three days later he was in front of the camera again. This time his brace sunk the visitors to Park Hall, gap Connah’s Quay.
We introduced a new feature into the radio show from the Nomads’ fixture. Word Plant is a Kai Edwards inspired game where we insert something into the programme and people have to guess what it is. Kai gave us ‘mash potatoes’ and well done to Jez Jeavons who was the first to get it right.
There is also a small prize attached to this as well, so make sure you’re listening in to all TNS games. It’s open to anyone, wherever you may be in the world. If you’re in Gobowen or Germany, Pant or Poland, just tune in and tweet us with your guesses.
Finally, in this week’s Rev’s Ramblings, there are shout-outs for recent #BeatTheBelle winners. If you’re not aware, on TNS Radio we run a just-for fun competition where we invite people to give us their prediction for the game.
The benchmark is set by Cortez Belle, hence the hashtag, although we should use ‘benchmark’ lightly as he hasn’t got one right yet in two years. I’m always teasing him about it but he’s determined he’s going to do it one day.
When he does I’m looking forward to the hour-long Sgorio special. In the meantime, well done to Steven Matthews and Matthew Morton who went for TNS 3 Port Talbot 1 and Rob Doman who correctly predicted The New Saints to beat Bangor 2-0.
The 1-1 with Airbus saw four people get it right, so top predicting Sez Roberts, Murdo Bailey, Darren Lamble and last but not least, Debby Bloor, the TNS Radio cake-maker.
Rob Doman was again on the ball with the 2-0 victory against gap Connah’s Quay, along with Tallie Brazier and Jacob Williams. Look out for #BeatTheBelle prior to each game or just send me your predictions anyway.
