Rembembering Welsh football's forgotten heroes of 1976

Everyone in Wales swells with pride to think of the amazing achievement of Bale, Allen, Ledley, Ramsey and co. in getting to the semi-finals at Euro 2016. Hardcore Wales football fans will also talk of the 1958 squad that included Ivor Allchurch and Mel and John Charles and made it to the quarter-finals of the World Cup. But what about the boys of 1976? Wales’ strangely unsung success of the 1976 European Championships is finally celebrated in a new book by Nick Burnell – Trailing Clouds of Glory: Welsh Football’s Forgotten Heroes of 1976, which fêtes the success and achievement of a group of people who restored pride in the Welsh football jersey. The book is also the Books Council of Wales’ Book of the Month for November 2019.  read more

Family Bible inspires Vale of Glamorgan family saga

A new novel by Welsh author Sam Adams was inspired by a family Bible. The novel called In the Vale, published by Y Lolfa, is a family saga that takes the reader from London to the Vale of Glamorgan and outwards into the social ferment and bloody turmoil of the Napoleonic era. It was inspired by the Williams family, who lived in the Vale of Glamorgan. George Williams, Rector of Llantrithyd was the Bible’s original owner, and used it to record the births and deaths of his and his wife Sarah’s children. Sam Adams received the Bible, which has been passed down from father to son since his great-great-great grandfather’s time, from a cousin.  read more
