-Good evening and welcome to Clwb

-at a new time in this new year.

0:00:200:00:24

-On a disappointing FA Cup 3rd-round

-weekend for Welsh clubs...

0:00:250:00:29

-..we'll be celebrating one

-of the biggest shocks of all time.

0:00:290:00:32

-Can you believe that it's 25 years

-since Wrexham beat the Gunners.

0:00:330:00:38

-Here's what else

-is on the programme.

0:00:380:00:41

-Fond memories of beating Arsenal but

-the fans have plenty to worry about.

0:00:430:00:47

-Woking were the visitors

-to the Racecourse yesterday.

0:00:470:00:51

-Out on the ocean waves, one Welshman

-is sailing around the world...

0:00:520:00:56

-..in the Vendee Globe race.

0:00:560:00:58

-There's a race to be in the top half

-of the Principality Premiership...

0:01:000:01:04

-..before the league splits in two.

0:01:040:01:06

-2017 is going to be a big year

-for the Welsh capital.

0:01:090:01:12

-We also chat with Alan Hamer.

0:01:120:01:14

-He's responsible for arranging the

-Champions League Final in Cardiff.

0:01:140:01:18

-My guest was on the Racecourse pitch

-on that incredible afternoon...

0:01:220:01:27

-..when Wrexham beat Arsenal.

0:01:270:01:29

-Welcome to the former Wrexham

-midfielder, Waynne Phillips.

0:01:290:01:33

-Can you believe that 25 years

-have gone by?

0:01:340:01:36

-No, the years have flown by.

0:01:370:01:39

-The game is always mentioned at this

-time of year at the 3rd-round stage.

0:01:390:01:44

-It's possibly the biggest ever

-FA Cup shock.

0:01:440:01:47

-I'm happy to have been part

-of the team that beat Arsenal.

0:01:480:01:53

-I was also there but I

-wasn't smiling, like you!

0:01:540:01:57

-We'll have more about

-that afternoon later on.

0:01:570:02:00

-We kick-off the programme

-on the Racecourse.

0:02:000:02:04

-No FA Cup tie and definitely

-no Arsenal this time...

0:02:040:02:07

-..but Woking in the National League.

0:02:070:02:10

-Ralph with the throw.

0:02:160:02:18

-Murtagh has Lewis

-supporting out on the flank.

0:02:190:02:24

-Lewis had plenty of time

-to play the ball into the box.

0:02:240:02:28

-Ugwu's header went

-well over the bar.

0:02:280:02:31

-James Jennings with the effort.

0:02:330:02:35

-He wasn't far off the target.

0:02:360:02:39

-Jennings battles his way

-to the ball.

0:02:420:02:45

-Good play.

0:02:460:02:47

-Tilt forward to White

-who controls it.

0:02:470:02:50

-Rooney with time to turn and shoot.

0:02:500:02:53

-Rooney gives Wrexham the lead.

0:02:540:02:59

-While one brother is busy claiming

-all the headlines at Old Trafford...

0:02:590:03:04

-..this is the brother

-the Wrexham fans care about.

0:03:040:03:08

-Ugwu controls possession

-and Hall collects the ball.

0:03:130:03:17

-Out to Ralph.

0:03:170:03:20

-Ralph takes the ball into the box

-and Barry challenges him...

0:03:200:03:24

-..but the ball falls perfectly

-for Fabio Saraiva.

0:03:240:03:28

-The Wrexham lead only lasted five

-minutes here at The Racecourse.

0:03:280:03:33

-Ralph's shot rebounded perfectly

-to Fabio Saraiva.

0:03:330:03:39

-Carrington gets the ball back.

-The cross goes into the box.

0:03:400:03:45

-Evans is denied by

-an excellent save by Michael Poke.

0:03:460:03:51

-It was a good cross and White

-did well to get his head to it.

0:03:510:03:57

-Barry has time to take stock.

0:04:000:04:02

-McLeod with an excellent pass

-towards White.

0:04:020:04:06

-White plays it to Evans.

0:04:060:04:09

-Wrexham have retaken the lead.

0:04:090:04:12

-It was a great move.

0:04:120:04:15

-The pass by McLeod...

0:04:150:04:16

-..was perfectly judged

-for Jordan White.

0:04:170:04:20

-Robbie Evans was the first to

-the ball to beat the goalkeeper.

0:04:220:04:28

-Saraiva, the Woking goalscorer,

-tries his luck once again.

0:04:340:04:37

-Two good saves in quick succession

-by Dunn.

0:04:370:04:41

-Dunn has retained his place today

-after coming on on New Year's Day.

0:04:430:04:48

-Murtagh has a go from distance.

0:04:520:04:55

-That's another great save by Dunn.

0:04:560:04:58

-Hall blazed over the crossbar

-with Carrington in attendance.

0:04:590:05:04

-It was a great save by Chris Dunn.

0:05:050:05:09

-Rooney. Jordan White

-has plenty of space here.

0:05:120:05:16

-Rooney has continued his run.

0:05:160:05:19

-Rooney to crown the win.

-He wasn't far off target.

0:05:190:05:23

-We emphasized before the game

-that a good performance was a bonus.

0:05:250:05:29

-We needed a win today.

0:05:300:05:31

-We asked for the basics like

-competing and winning second balls.

0:05:310:05:36

-The first half was a bit edgy.

0:05:360:05:38

-You could see both sides

-trying to work each other out.

0:05:380:05:42

-We told them to go out second half

-and go for them.

0:05:420:05:45

-Intensity, tempo, another 10-15%

-and you're going to win the game.

0:05:460:05:49

-We deserved the three points.

0:05:500:05:51

-We should have won last week.

0:05:530:05:55

-We got the three points this week...

0:05:550:05:57

-..and hopefully we'll repeat that

-next week and climb the table.

0:05:570:06:01

-Wrexham are up to 15th.

0:06:020:06:03

-It's North Ferriby United

-at the Racecourse next week.

0:06:050:06:09

-It's January and Wrexham

-win 2-1 at the Racecourse.

0:06:110:06:15

-That sounds familiar! Waynne

-Phillips is our guest on Clwb 2.

0:06:150:06:18

-Wrexham needed that win.

-Are you a happier supporter now?

0:06:190:06:25

-Yes, and as we heard Dean Keates

-say, the points were all-important.

0:06:260:06:31

-The first half wasn't very good but

-it got better in the second half.

0:06:310:06:35

-The goal settled them down.

0:06:360:06:37

-Four of their next five games

-are at the Racecourse.

0:06:380:06:41

-They play three teams in the bottom

-four. It was an important win.

0:06:410:06:45

-We hope for the same next week

-against North Ferriby.

0:06:450:06:49

-Great goals and some new signings.

-Is Dean Keates turning it around?

0:06:500:06:55

-I'd like to think that he is.

0:06:570:06:59

-A month ago, they had a great result

-against Forest Green.

0:06:590:07:03

-They lost their way since then.

0:07:030:07:05

-I think it will be like this

-until the end of the season.

0:07:050:07:09

-They will be safe

-outside the bottom four.

0:07:090:07:12

-But this isn't what we expect

-at Wrexham FC.

0:07:120:07:15

-They want to be in the top four.

0:07:150:07:17

-There's a lot of hard work to

-be done over the next few months.

0:07:170:07:21

-Hopefully, next season

-will be the one.

0:07:210:07:23

-Time now to look back...

0:07:230:07:26

-..as we celebrate 25 years since

-Wrexham beat Arsenal in the FA Cup.

0:07:260:07:32

-One of the biggest shocks

-in that competition.

0:07:330:07:37

-Friday night was the big night

-at the Racecourse.

0:07:370:07:40

-Some past heroes were there

-to celebrate the anniversary.

0:07:400:07:44

-There were some familiar faces

-present.

0:07:440:07:47

-At 37, in a game of that magnitude.

0:07:560:07:58

-Arsenal were league champs,

-Wrexham were 92nd.

0:07:580:08:01

-That will live with me for ever.

0:08:020:08:05

-The strike, even though

-I watch it ten times every day.

0:08:050:08:08

-It gets better every time.

0:08:080:08:10

-It was one of those days.

-It made world news.

0:08:100:08:13

-It made the papers in New Zealand.

0:08:130:08:15

-I have family in the States

-and they were talking about it.

0:08:150:08:19

-I told Waynne to pass me

-the ball initially.

0:08:190:08:21

-Then I told him I

-was going to smash it.

0:08:210:08:24

-I took one on the Thursday afternoon

-in training...

0:08:240:08:27

-..with great power

-and a five-yard run-up.

0:08:270:08:30

-I tried the same process.

0:08:300:08:32

-It didn't go in on the training

-ground but it went in at the game.

0:08:320:08:36

-They couldn't believe it,

-I couldn't, no-one could.

0:08:370:08:40

-What an atmosphere when it hit

-the net, an incredible feeling.

0:08:400:08:44

-When you play with freedom

-and you're not scared...

0:08:450:08:48

-..not afraid to do things

-on the pitch.

0:08:480:08:51

-There's always a chance

-something will happen.

0:08:510:08:54

-We kept on plugging away

-and got the equalizer.

0:08:540:08:57

-Mickey hit one of

-the best free kicks you'll see.

0:08:570:09:01

-Steve scored two minutes later

-with a fantastic finish.

0:09:010:09:05

-It's one of those moments in

-your life you always remember.

0:09:050:09:10

-The chance came a couple of minutes

-later and I managed to take it.

0:09:100:09:14

-Right place, right time.

0:09:140:09:16

-It was fantastic, absolutely superb

-for the whole town.

0:09:170:09:21

-I gave my shirt away after the game.

0:09:210:09:23

-I wish I hadn't,

-it would be worth a few bob now.

0:09:230:09:26

-I've got the memories,

-that's for sure.

0:09:260:09:29

-It's great for the club

-and its history as well...

0:09:290:09:32

-..that we always get a

-mention even after 25 years.

0:09:320:09:36

-Mickey Thomas lost his shirt but

-Waynne Phillips' shirt is here!

0:09:380:09:42

-A famous shirt

-from that famous match.

0:09:430:09:46

-There's a good reason

-why you still have it.

0:09:460:09:49

-The manager, Brian Flynn, told us

-not to swap shirts on that day...

0:09:490:09:53

-..because we had a game

-the following Saturday.

0:09:530:09:56

-We only had one set of shirts

-back in those days.

0:09:570:10:00

-I'm so glad he said that

-because I'll keep it until I die.

0:10:000:10:04

-It's nice to have the chance

-to take it out once again.

0:10:040:10:08

-We mentioned Wrexham's current

-problems but it was a crisis then.

0:10:080:10:12

-They'd finished bottom

-of the league.

0:10:120:10:15

-There was a Wrexham Revival

-campaign.

0:10:150:10:17

-Brian Flynn brought in local boys.

0:10:170:10:19

-Are they in a better situation now

-but out of the football league?

0:10:200:10:23

-On the pitch, no.

0:10:250:10:26

-We had a great coaching team.

0:10:260:10:29

-Brian Flynn, Kevin Reeves,

-Joey Jones. They were superb.

0:10:290:10:33

-They brought young players through.

0:10:330:10:35

-Something we haven't seen

-in recent years.

0:10:360:10:38

-Wrexham always brought through

-young players from North Wales.

0:10:380:10:43

-I was given a chance there.

0:10:430:10:45

-There's no better feeling...

0:10:450:10:47

-..for a Caernarfon lad

-than playing for Wrexham.

0:10:480:10:51

-That's where they've gone wrong.

0:10:510:10:53

-Attendance figures are up.

0:10:540:10:57

-They attract 4-5,000 which amazes me

-considering the quality of football.

0:10:570:11:03

-People complained in the 1990s,

-but that team, as we have seen...

0:11:030:11:08

-..were an excellent side and squad.

0:11:080:11:11

-They played for each other to go

-out and win matches every week.

0:11:110:11:15

-That is missing these days.

0:11:160:11:18

-A team full of characters

-and friends.

0:11:180:11:21

-Can you explain how it felt

-to beat Arsenal, the champions?

0:11:220:11:27

-It's a feeling you'll never forget.

0:11:270:11:30

-I remember the names

-coming out of the hat.

0:11:300:11:34

-As a Man Utd fan, I was disappointed

-we had drawn Arsenal.

0:11:350:11:38

-Arsenal had won the top division.

-We were bottom of the league.

0:11:390:11:42

-This result wasn't supposed

-to happen.

0:11:430:11:46

-The preparations

-would have been the same...

0:11:460:11:49

-..for Barnet or Bristol.

0:11:500:11:52

-We got together

-on the Friday night.

0:11:520:11:55

-We never used to have a hotel

-for a home match.

0:11:550:11:59

-I remember arriving at the hotel

-on the Friday afternoon.

0:11:590:12:02

-We had a brief chat

-and watched a video of Arsenal.

0:12:020:12:06

-I was a bit worried

-about the task ahead.

0:12:060:12:09

-We had a meal and went to bed.

-I slept well that night.

0:12:090:12:13

-Flynnie always allowed us

-half a lager in the hotel.

0:12:140:12:18

-He hated seeing you with a pint

-but ten halves, that was fine!

0:12:190:12:23

-Just don't have a pint!

0:12:240:12:25

-The evening passed quickly...

0:12:260:12:28

-..before settling down

-for the match on the next day.

0:12:280:12:32

-It's a lovely story and even

-an Arsenal fan can say that!

0:12:320:12:36

-Stay with us as there's

-plenty more to come.

0:12:370:12:39

-It's great to share the

-memories of Wrexham's big day.

0:12:400:12:44

-After the break, we turn

-our attention to rugby.

-Welcome back as we turn to rugby.

0:13:020:13:04

-The Principality Premiership has

-seen a lot of changes this season.

0:13:050:13:11

-More clubs, from 12 to 16, and a

-mid-season split for the league.

0:13:110:13:16

-We start with the crucial games

-over Christmas.

0:13:160:13:20

-It was a successful Christmas

-period for Aberavon...

0:13:250:13:29

-..as they moved

-to the top with two easy wins.

0:13:290:13:32

-The first came against Neath

-with Joe Gage scoring this try.

0:13:320:13:38

-It was the same story versus

-Bridgend as Jay Baker scores here.

0:13:420:13:46

-Just two of the sixteen tries

-racked up by the Wizards there.

0:13:460:13:50

-The biggest game of the holidays

-was between Cardiff and Ebbw Vale.

0:13:510:13:55

-Cardiff looked on their way to a top

-eight place when Ceri Young scored.

0:13:550:14:00

-However, a penalty try in the

-closing moments...

0:14:000:14:04

-..meant the final places in

-the top eight would be decided...

0:14:040:14:08

-..in the final round of fixtures.

0:14:080:14:11

-The first game of the new year

-was played at Rodney Parade...

0:14:120:14:16

-..as RGC 1404 travelled down

-the A470 to play Newport.

0:14:160:14:19

-Newport fullback, Llywarch ap

-Myrddin, took on his former club.

0:14:200:14:24

-There was no battle of the brothers

-because Carwyn ap Myrddin...

0:14:240:14:28

-..missed the game

-for RGC with an injury.

0:14:280:14:30

-When the fixtures were announced

-this was the one I looked for.

0:14:320:14:37

-My brother isn't playing but

-I will be taking on some old mates.

0:14:370:14:42

-As a former player, how pleased

-are you with their growing success?

0:14:430:14:47

-It's fantastic and no surprise.

0:14:470:14:50

-The set-up is very professional.

0:14:510:14:54

-I wouldn't be where I am now

-without the help of RGC 1404.

0:14:540:14:58

-I'm very thankful

-for what they have done for me.

0:14:590:15:02

-Worthington is on the left.

-Leach is there.

0:15:030:15:06

-Out to Worthington.

-Will he get there?

0:15:060:15:09

-He's tackled

-inches short of the line.

0:15:090:15:12

-The chance is still there.

-Robin Williams, the tall lock.

0:15:140:15:20

-Out to Hughes.

0:15:210:15:23

-Hughes is over the line.

0:15:240:15:27

-To the left to Robson and Frewen.

0:15:310:15:35

-There's space further back

-but they go left.

0:15:360:15:39

-The Northwalians are under pressure

-and this could square it up.

0:15:410:15:45

-Newport have struck back.

0:15:470:15:50

-They trundle forward again.

-What will Adam Jones do here?

0:15:560:15:59

-It was inevitable.

-The referee heads under the posts.

0:16:000:16:04

-It's a hard-earned penalty try.

0:16:040:16:09

-To the left. Robson.

-Frewen chases after it.

0:16:160:16:20

-Cross is also chasing it down.

0:16:210:16:23

-He takes too long

-and he can't clear it.

0:16:250:16:29

-They are under pressure.

0:16:320:16:36

-The maul is reset.

0:16:360:16:39

-They've conceded possession

-ten metres from their own line.

0:16:390:16:43

-This will be a try

-if they can go to the right.

0:16:430:16:47

-That's a poor pass.

-It's gone behind the man once again.

0:16:470:16:52

-The flanker tries to go it alone

-but comes back inside.

0:16:520:16:56

-Llywarch ap Myrddin has scored

-against his former club.

0:16:560:17:02

-The black shirts opened up

-like the Red Sea.

0:17:030:17:07

-Myrddin cantered over.

0:17:070:17:10

-Yardley carries the ball.

0:17:130:17:16

-The fancy footwork got him nowhere.

-Leach takes it on.

0:17:180:17:22

-There are men on the outside

-who could score.

0:17:230:17:26

-Tom Hughes once again.

0:17:260:17:30

-The try has been awarded despite it

-looking as if he was tackled short.

0:17:310:17:36

-Leach made the break and

-he had men racing to support him.

0:17:360:17:39

-Tom Hughes gets his

-second of the afternoon.

0:17:400:17:42

-The long black line is preparing

-for the next offensive.

0:17:500:17:54

-Newport build again. James to

-the left. There are men out here.

0:18:070:18:13

-They spin the ball wide.

0:18:130:18:15

-It's a second row and he could go

-all the way with a fancy sidestep.

0:18:150:18:19

-Dan Partridge

-stepped off his left foot.

0:18:200:18:25

-He made it look easy and

-sealed a bonus point for his team.

0:18:260:18:31

-Newport have

-dominated the second half.

0:18:350:18:40

-The forwards do the hard work

-and look for space.

0:18:420:18:45

-O'Brien goes blind to Jenkins.

0:18:450:18:49

-They go right again.

0:18:520:18:55

-The try has been scored.

0:18:550:18:58

-The substitute, Dan Mock,

-has grabbed a fifth for Newport.

0:18:590:19:03

-Newport were the better team

-in many aspects of the game.

0:19:050:19:08

-They picked off our line well

-and won the kicking battle easily.

0:19:100:19:16

-Disappointed to lose but

-it's another game we'll learn from.

0:19:210:19:25

-A great win. You must be happy.

0:19:270:19:29

-Happy with the win

-and the way we played.

0:19:290:19:33

-We had nothing much to play for

-so we just went out and played.

0:19:330:19:39

-It was a great game to play in.

0:19:390:19:42

-That's how it looks in the

-Principality Premiership.

0:19:430:19:46

-This season, there are 16 clubs

-and the league will split in two.

0:19:470:19:52

-This system has been used for years

-in the Welsh football league.

0:19:520:19:57

-That's what will be on Sgorio

-next weekend.

0:19:570:20:00

-Carmarthen travel to Cefn Druids.

0:20:000:20:03

-Carmarthen are favourites

-to reach the top six.

0:20:040:20:07

-It's a similar situation in

-the Principality Premiership.

0:20:070:20:11

-With one game before the split,

-two teams were vying for one place.

0:20:120:20:17

-Lowri Wynn will explain more.

0:20:170:20:19

-A huge game at Eugene Cross Park.

0:20:230:20:25

-An Ebbw win against Cross Keys

-would ensure Nigel Davies' boys...

0:20:250:20:29

-..a top half berth

-for rest of the season.

0:20:300:20:32

-Defeat would mean waiting...

0:20:320:20:34

-..to see if Cardiff had

-beaten Bedwas in the capital.

0:20:340:20:37

-The Ebbw scrum was too strong and

-the Keys eight had to yield there.

0:20:410:20:46

-An easy kick for Josh Lewis

-for Ebbw Vale.

0:20:540:20:59

-It's another solid scrum.

0:21:030:21:05

-That wasn't the best pass

-but it didn't go forward.

0:21:050:21:09

-Thomas felt that tackle.

0:21:100:21:12

-We are right on halfway.

0:21:120:21:15

-Cornock tried to kick through

-but it was held on the ground.

0:21:160:21:20

-Another dubious decision.

0:21:200:21:23

-Is this the kick that secures

-Ebbw Vale's place in the top eight?

0:21:240:21:30

-The fans are giving you a clue

-that it's over.

0:21:380:21:41

-We've been kept waiting a while

-for the second score of this game.

0:21:420:21:47

-That means Cross Keys will need

-a converted try to deny Ebbw Vale.

0:21:470:21:53

-The ball is being sheltered

-by Kynes. Out to Josh Lewis.

0:22:000:22:04

-He's through the gap

-and he's scored the try.

0:22:040:22:08

-That try makes it certain that

-Ebbw Vale will have the chance...

0:22:080:22:14

-..to defend their league title

-in the second half of the season.

0:22:140:22:20

-They are safely into the top eight

-for the rest of the season...

0:22:200:22:24

-..thanks to Josh Lewis who has

-scored all their points today.

0:22:240:22:28

-It was always going to be

-a really tough match.

0:22:300:22:34

-The boys played well

-and defended superbly.

0:22:340:22:38

-We have a lot to do but we have the

-chance now being in the top eight.

0:22:380:22:42

-That meant a win for Cardiff...

0:22:420:22:45

-..wouldn't be enough

-to secure them a top eight berth.

0:22:450:22:49

-Bedwas opened the scoring

-with an Adam Williams try.

0:22:500:22:55

-Although the score was

-quite close at half-time...

0:22:570:23:00

-..Robson Blake extended Bedwas' lead

-with a try in the second half.

0:23:000:23:05

-It also clinched a bonus point.

0:23:050:23:08

-With four minutes left, the American

-giant, Cam Dolan, crashed over...

0:23:100:23:15

-..for a try hat-trick for Cardiff

-but it was little consolation.

0:23:160:23:20

-There were nearly 3,000 fans

-watching at Parc Eirias...

0:23:250:23:29

-..with Nigel Owens in charge.

0:23:290:23:31

-Andrew Williams scored this try to

-square things up for the home team.

0:23:310:23:36

-It was a different story in the

-second half with RGC dominating.

0:23:370:23:42

-Tom Hughes stormed over

-for the bonus point.

0:23:430:23:46

-There was still time

-for a sixth try for RGC.

0:23:480:23:51

-Danny Cross scoring to lift RGC

-back to fourth place in the league.

0:23:510:23:55

-The first game of the new year

-at the Talbot Athletic Ground...

0:23:570:24:01

-..was between first and second.

0:24:010:24:03

-Joe Tomalin-Reeves gave Aberavon

-their first lead of the game.

0:24:030:24:08

-There was a chance for Merthyr to

-strike back before the break.

0:24:110:24:15

-Rees making the break before Rhys

-Downes proved to quick to catch.

0:24:150:24:20

-The scrum half giving

-Merthyr the lead.

0:24:200:24:22

-Following a fiercely fought tight

-encounter the home team...

0:24:230:24:26

-..eventually claimed the victory...

0:24:270:24:29

-..thanks to a sterling effort by the

-forwards with Ben Jones scoring...

0:24:290:24:33

-..to complete an amazing first half

-of the season for the Wizards.

0:24:330:24:37

-Ebbw Vale claim the final spot

-in the top eight.

0:24:390:24:44

-Cardiff miss out by a whisker.

0:24:440:24:46

-Aberavon lead the way at the moment.

0:24:470:24:49

-Lowri Wynn with the table there.

0:24:520:24:54

-In the second half of the season,

-all the teams start from scratch.

0:24:540:24:58

-Big changes in that league.

0:24:590:25:02

-We'll sail around the world after

-the break in the Vendee Globe race.

0:25:020:25:06

-We meet the man organizing the

-Champions League final in Cardiff.

0:25:060:25:11

-Alan Hamer is a busy man.

0:25:110:25:12

-We'll also chat about Wrexham

-versus Arsenal with Waynne Phillips.

0:25:130:25:17

-Join us in a few minutes.

-Welcome back.

-What were you doing on 6 November?

0:25:370:25:40

-Maybe you were clearing up

-after Bonfire Night.

0:25:400:25:43

-The sailors in the Vendee Globe race

-were just starting their voyages.

0:25:430:25:48

-They are still at it

-but the end is almost in sight.

0:25:490:25:53

-The good news is that Welshman Alex

-Thomson was still near the front.

0:25:530:25:57

-Christmas in the southern seas

-and Armel Le Cleac'h is the first...

0:25:590:26:04

-..of the remaining 19 sailors

-in the Vendee Globe race...

0:26:040:26:08

-..to round the Horn in a record

-47 days and 32 minutes.

0:26:080:26:11

-That's it, the temperature is

-good... nice and cold!

0:26:130:26:19

-Good health

-to the boat and to the Horn.

0:26:200:26:24

-Thank you for providing a route

-through the Southern Oceans.

0:26:250:26:29

-Hot on his heels is Welshman, Alex

-Thomson who's in very good spirits.

0:26:320:26:36

-# Jingle bells Alex sails

-round the world he goes

0:26:360:26:40

-# Single-handed, breaking records

-he's no twinkle toes

0:26:400:26:44

-# Oh jingle bells, Alex sails

-so much sea to cross

0:26:440:26:49

-# Oh what fun it is to sail

-on the mighty Hugo Boss #

0:26:490:26:54

-Amazingly with a foil

-on just one side of his boat...

0:26:570:27:00

-.. Alex is closing the gap on Armel.

0:27:000:27:02

-Here's the famous Cape Horn!

0:27:030:27:07

-Well that was Cape Horn at 30 knots.

0:27:080:27:14

-It's quite difficult to film

-and be outside as you can see.

0:27:140:27:18

-That's just

-a fleeting glimpse of it.

0:27:200:27:22

-I got a good look

-through some windows.

0:27:230:27:25

-Great to be here,

-great to be here so quickly.

0:27:250:27:28

-Shame I'm not in first place but

-full credit to Armel.

0:27:280:27:32

-He's done a great job.

0:27:320:27:33

-I'm going to try my hardest

-to catch him up now.

0:27:340:27:36

-Armel and Alex are now two days

-sailing ahead of Jeremie Beyou...

0:27:390:27:44

-..in third place.

0:27:440:27:45

-Incredible!

-Tension, so much tension.

0:27:480:27:51

-We'll sort it all out

-after the Doldrums...

0:27:510:27:55

-..the next obstacle

-in front of us.

0:27:550:27:57

-The task is to increase the gap

-between us...

0:27:580:28:01

-..over the coming hours

-and the coming days.

0:28:010:28:04

-All good. The last days since Cape

-Horn have been brilliant.

0:28:090:28:13

-We've had to catch up all the miles

-and almost get even...

0:28:130:28:17

-..with Banque Populair,

-it's been amazing.

0:28:170:28:20

-He'll now extend away from me

-but he won't be 800 miles away.

0:28:200:28:23

-We'll have to see how it pans out

-when we get to the Doldrums.

0:28:240:28:27

-But the hard racing proved too much

-for crucial parts of the equipment.

0:28:300:28:35

-Here is the furler.

-The sail was attached here.

0:28:350:28:38

-We can see that it's actually opened

-up.

0:28:390:28:42

-When it came loose this bit was

-flying around everywhere.

0:28:420:28:46

-It was flying around hitting the

-deck, hitting the hull...

0:28:460:28:50

-..hitting the deckspreader,

-hitting the foil.

0:28:500:28:53

-So my first job was trying

-to stop it destroying the boat.

0:28:530:28:56

-I put the boat downwind

-as best as I could.

0:28:570:28:59

-It was still flailing

-around everywhere.

0:28:590:29:02

-I had to lasso it.

-It cost me a fair few miles.

0:29:020:29:04

-It's the kind of thing

-that could cost me the race.

0:29:050:29:07

-Welsh bad luck meant the

-French crossed the equator first.

0:29:080:29:11

-As the Equator is crossed,

-good health to Neptune!

0:29:120:29:17

-But who will be the first

-to get back to France?

0:29:200:29:23

-We will follow the climax

-of that race on this programme.

0:29:290:29:33

-People are always complaining

-that everything is held in Cardiff.

0:29:330:29:37

-A glance at recent big sporting

-events held there would prove it.

0:29:380:29:42

-This year, one of the biggest

-footballing events reaches Cardiff.

0:29:420:29:46

-The finals of the Champions League.

0:29:460:29:48

-There are two finals

-taking place in June.

0:29:490:29:52

-The women's final is on the first

-and the men's final on the third.

0:29:520:29:56

-Alan Hamer is in charge of it all

-and I went to meet him this week.

0:29:560:30:02

-How big is this for Cardiff

-and for Wales?

0:30:100:30:12

-As a city and a nation

-there's nothing to fear.

0:30:130:30:16

-The hardest thing

-is the size of the city.

0:30:170:30:20

-London, Berlin and Milan

-are much bigger cities.

0:30:200:30:25

-Transport has been a problem before.

0:30:250:30:30

-I think we've found something

-that will work.

0:30:300:30:34

-We've done a lot of work

-with Cardiff and Bristol airports.

0:30:350:30:38

-And with the railways too.

0:30:380:30:40

-More than 20 trains will

-return to London after the game.

0:30:400:30:44

-That hasn't happened before.

-UEFA are happy.

0:30:440:30:48

-I think the supporters

-will be happy too.

0:30:490:30:51

-What's the audience for these games

0:30:520:30:55

-UEFA say 200 million people

-will watch it.

0:30:560:30:58

-That's twice as much as the Super

-Bowl which shows how big it is.

0:30:590:31:05

-I try not to think about

-the figures.

0:31:060:31:08

-It's a chance

-for us as a city and a nation...

0:31:090:31:12

-..to put Cardiff and Wales

-on the map.

0:31:130:31:16

-I hope that after what happened

-in France last summer...

0:31:160:31:20

-..more people will think more

-positively about Wales and Cardiff.

0:31:200:31:25

-How many do you think

-will come to Cardiff?

0:31:250:31:28

-It depends who's in the final.

0:31:280:31:31

-Sometimes, the less traditional

-clubs bring more fans.

0:31:310:31:36

-We're planning for 200,000 people

-coming into the city on match day.

0:31:360:31:42

-200,000 will also come over four

-days to the fanzone and everything.

0:31:430:31:48

-It's a lot of people, every part of

-Cardiff will be full.

0:31:480:31:54

-It'll be a fantastic atmosphere.

0:31:540:31:57

-Sometimes cities are too big.

-It'll be different in Cardiff.

0:31:580:32:02

-You won't be able

-to avoid the match.

0:32:030:32:05

-It'll be brilliant

-for the supporters.

0:32:050:32:08

-The atmosphere

-will be great all week.

0:32:080:32:11

-It'll be an experience that won't be

-repeated around the world.

0:32:110:32:15

-Cities don't have stadiums

-right in the centre like Cardiff.

0:32:150:32:19

-It'll be something different.

0:32:190:32:21

-The Super Cup has been here.

0:32:210:32:23

-How much help

-was a big occasion like that?

0:32:230:32:27

-Without the Super Cup

-we wouldn't get this match.

0:32:270:32:30

-We didn't realise at the time

-what a valuable experience it was.

0:32:300:32:34

-It went well and it gave UEFA the

-confidence that we had enough...

0:32:340:32:40

-..skills and experience

-as an association ...

0:32:400:32:43

-.. to put on a big event

-like the one in June.

0:32:430:32:46

-Without it this game

-would never have come to Wales.

0:32:470:32:51

-It's quite a feather in the cap

-of the association.

0:32:510:32:54

-People in the association worked

-hard for years without any fuss.

0:32:540:33:00

-Now, all that hard work

-is bearing fruit.

0:33:000:33:04

-Lots of football associations

-around Europe will look at Wales...

0:33:050:33:10

-..and think if they can do it,

-why can't we?

0:33:100:33:13

-As the day of reckoning and that

-kick off approach there'll be...

0:33:150:33:20

-..lots of events across the

-country in the coming months.

0:33:200:33:23

-The trophy has been on a very

-popular tour already.

0:33:240:33:27

-As well as seeing the trophy

-what about watching the game?

0:33:270:33:31

-People have a chance of getting

-tickets, like for the Euros.

0:33:320:33:37

-They'll have two weeks in March

-to request up to two tickets.

0:33:380:33:43

-Then there'll be a ballot.

0:33:440:33:46

-Can people volunteer?

0:33:470:33:48

-That's been

-popular in the Olympic Games.

0:33:480:33:51

-You can be part of the occasion

-without a ticket.

0:33:510:33:56

-We want to get 1,000 people

-to do different jobs.

0:33:570:34:02

-There's also a chance for an

-extra 500 to be on the pitch...

0:34:020:34:08

-..during the opening ceremony

-before the game.

0:34:080:34:12

-The process begins in two weeks...

0:34:120:34:17

-..for people to put in a request

-to be part of it.

0:34:170:34:23

-Over the next two weeks, we'll

-go around Wales to meet people.

0:34:230:34:27

-Everyone will find out

-at the end of March.

0:34:270:34:30

-It's a fantastic opportunity.

0:34:310:34:33

-As in Milan and at the Super Bowl...

0:34:330:34:36

-..a world-famous artist

-will perform before the match.

0:34:360:34:41

-It's a chance to be on television...

0:34:410:34:45

-..with 200 million people

-watching all over the world.

0:34:450:34:49

-Is there any chance of a ticket?

0:34:500:34:52

-That's the question everybody

-asks me! Tickets are hard to get.

0:34:520:34:58

-Unfortunately I won't be able to

-help all the people asking.

0:34:580:35:02

-If I can, I'm sure I'll

-have a friend for life!

0:35:030:35:05

-That's a very nice way of saying no!

0:35:060:35:08
