Welsh anthem urged for FA Cup Final

The Welsh Sports Minister, Rhodri Glyn Thomas (Plaid Cymru), wants “common sense” to prevail so that the Welsh national anthem can be played alongside God Save The Queen when Cardiff City play in the FA Cup final.

In the absence of an English Sports Minister to call for an English anthem, common sense comes in the form of Cardiff City supporter Gwyn Davies:

“There’s no prouder Welshman than me but this is not the time and the place.

“It’s not Wales v England, it’s two teams in the English FA Cup final”.

Presumably both sets of fans will join together in singing Abide with Me.

It's very calm over here, why not leave a comment?

SCOTTISH Mirror readers yesterday voted overwhelmingly in favour of adopting The Flower of Scotland as our official national anthem. A whopping 64 per cent called for the rousing folk song to be given the same legal status as God Save the Queen.
