Another recap:

We're looking for a men's open-age match that took place in 2015 at a venue in Wales that's north of Aberystwyth and west of Colwyn Bay but isn't on Anglesey.

Not a competitive match but not a pre-season friendly, testimonial or charity game either.

Both teams were Welsh, the home team begins with L but they do not appear on the wiki site of Welsh football clubs. The home club doesn't have the suffix of Town or United, and isn't Llanfairpwl or any of the Llandudno clubs. The match did not involve Wrexham either.

As far as I know the match didn't set a precedent or record, and its claim to fame isn't because of any particular incident during the match.

He's quiet all game then he pounces..... Laugh

GOALLLLL!!!

Exactly that, the cup game that wasn't, but the league got rumbled by disgruntled hoppers! Full details, with postscript, on Laurence's blog at https://laurencereade.wordpress.com/...itanyway/#more-18476

I see Llanllyfni have resigned from the Welsh Alliance in the days since I set this quiz so well done again, mip, on helping me avoid some potentially awkward questions later on!

With my scant knowledge of Welsh footie I had all but given up on this one...

And calling it non-competitive... I can't see you being welcome on any Groundhop UK hop in the future. Wink

It wasn't a cup match. It was presented to the hoppers as a cup match at the time, because that's what the league originally told Groundhop UK, but it was a friendly. The league got rumbled!
