S4C announces its live games from the Welsh Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League

27/01/2012

S4C have announced which Welsh Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League games the football series, Sgorio, will be broadcasting live during the next two months.

One of the biggest games will be Bangor’s first game in the Welsh Premiership from their new stadium in Nantporth on 4 February, when they welcome Prestatyn.

As the Welsh Premiership returns after its mid-winter break, the league is divided into two sections of six.

The top six will play each other twice during the second half of the season and the bottom six will play each other twice before the plays-offs at the end of the season to decide who will win the last place in the European competitions.

At the end of the first half of the season, champions Bangor were at the top of the table with 50 points, with the New Saints tight on their heels with 49 points.

“We’re really looking forward to returning to Premier League games and there’s no better game to start the season than a Bangor home game,” says Sgorio presenter and commentator, Dylan Ebenezer.

“The last game at Farrar Road over Christmas was unforgettable and there’ll be great emotion and excitement as they play their first Premier League game at their new home.

“It promises to be an exciting second half of the season, with the New Saints, Llanelli and even Neath still in with a shout of winning the championship.”

Among the other games in the championship to make your mouth water are Llanelli v New Saints on Saturday, 18 February and Bangor v The New Saints on Saturday, 10 March.

The game between Aberystwyth and Carmarthen will be fascinating, as this will be the first time the Sgorio live match cameras will have covered Carmarthen since former international player Mark Aizelwood took over.

"It promises to be a very exciting second half of the season. Four teams are still in the race for the title, as there is still hope even for Neath,” adds Dylan Ebenezer.

"I think Bangor will clinch it in the end and retain the title - but it depends on how they settle at their new ground. The Bangor team depends a great deal on its guts and determination and the atmosphere at Farrar Road always raised the players’ performance.

“If they can settle in quickly at Nantporth, they should keep hold of the title, but they face a major challenge from The New Saints and Llanelli especially.”
