When Dragons soared: Welsh clubs in the European Cup Winners’ Cup The Football Pink Podcast

    • Sports

The European cup Winners’ Cup, which ran from 1960 to 1999, has been associated with some pretty glamorous names over the years, with its list of former winners including the likes of Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona, Parma and Everton. Perhaps less well known is its association with Cardiff City, Wrexham or Borough United - but for decades these Welsh clubs could gain entry to the elite competition through winning the Welsh Cup. Host Roddy Cairns (@RoddyGCairns) is joined by James Bolam (@JamesBolam) and Liam Togher (@liamtogher88) to look back on the days when Wales' lower league legends were mixing it with some of Europe’s most prestigious side's.
