Almost unnoticed and certainly unloved, the final (hopefully) FAW Premier Trophy final took place tonight between Newport County and Llanelli, County winning 1-0 on home turf.
The competition promised much, including Euuropean competition for its winners but delievered nothing except a rather useful £100,000 prize money.
Its format, however, was always flawed. Created by BBC Wales at a time it lost its rugby contract to S4C and found itsself with a sports department, a sports budget and the tricky problem of no sport ... it was forced to come up with this half-baked idea.
Its spotlight was non-existent, it disgraceully undermined and devalued the Welsh Cup and, for Cardiff and Swansea, it was always little more than a youth/reserve team run out as the fixtures came at a time of season where there were more pressing matters in their calendars.
Good riddance to bad rubbish as far as this blog is concerned.
Here's a report on tonight's final from the BBC website.
