Cereal and Board Game Cafe Tiny Rick's has found a new home on Smithdown Road. The popular cafe was previously housed in the basement of Grand Central Hall on Renshaw Street but are currently in the process of moving to their new location.

0 Post a comment Wednesday, 25 April 2018 - Rugby by Adam Hughes - Sports editor @CambrianSport [email protected] ABERYSTWYTH served up a feast of direct attacking rugby and fully deserved their 46-14 bonus point win over Kidwelly on a lovely spring day at Plascrug. The home side had started the game strongly, full of attacking intent, with strong carries from Steff Rees and Arwel Lloyd, which Kidwelly did well to repel.Mathew Hughes also showed his intent, with the first of many mazy runs, but he was denied a try by the referee, who ruled a double movement before grounding.Aber did open the scoring when Carwyn Evans won a break-down penalty, which was kicked by Steffan Rees.The first of their seven tries came when, after another direct attack by the pack, including a strong carry by James Plumbridge, the ball was recycled and moved quickly across the backs for Steff Rees to pierce the defence and score. This was a purple patch for Aber as they scored again … [Read more...] about Aberystwyth serve an attacking feast

Weighed in the balance will be the cost of the holiday against a renewed season ticket. The lucky ones will be those able to afford both. Others will be faced with a problem. It may mean changing the habit of a lifetime. A couple of generations ago the dilemma would not have existed. Then, watching football was straightforward. You went to the ground on Saturday afternoon and tuned in for some highlights on Match of the Day in the evening. But then came Sky Sports with an alternative way to see live games. It wasn’t free, but four whole games over a weekend and more in midweek made it very competitive agaist the price of a season ticket. If the purse doesn’t stretch to both, decision-making is a … [Read more...] about On the box or in real live, how do you like your football served up?
