Rhys Wynne

I cannot remember his first football match. I could've sworn that it was Colwyn Bay vs Hayes at Llanelian Road (though why would it be, it was a Northern Premier League game?). But my second game was as clear as day. Colwyn Bay vs Frickley Athletic, 2-0 defeat from his hometown team, sendings off for Graham Robers & Dave Fuller, and - soon after - I was hooked.

Since my time as a small 13 year old boy, to a 20 something year old man, I have followed my beloved hometown team around the country, which lead to questions - "Why are you going to Durham City away?", "Why are you spending £70 on a train ticket to go to Bishop's Stortford?", "Why are you sacrificing Liverpool tickets for a match against Cammell Lairds?". The reason? Non League Football, like a saline drip, gets in your blood. It's not the most flashiest or best football, but by goodness it's a football I'm proud to be a part of.

I'm Rhys, and I own You're Supposed To Be At Home. I also have a personal blog and I part own a brewery. I work as an SEO and usually can be found ranting on the subject on my personal twitter account @rhyswynne.

Bradford City – 2 Shrewsbury Town – 1 Football League 1 – 28th September 2013 Corporate Football. Two words that kind of send shivers down the spine of the average fan.

West Didsbury & Chorlton – 0 Burscough – 3 FA Cup Preliminary Round – 31st August 2013 Ah, probably the greatest competition of club football in the world.

Edgeley Park – Stockport County

3 Sep

Stockport County – 0 Colwyn Bay – 1 Football Conference North – 26th August 2013 And after the heroics of the last six games, here we go again. Colwyn Bay fought brilliantly to remain in the (now named) Skrill Conference North at the last 6 games of last season, consigning (unfortunately) Corby Town to the […]
