'King Kav' Nets Opener at Cardiff City Stadium

'King Kav' Nets Opener at Cardiff City Stadium

Cardiff City's first match at the new stadium went well and the 5000 spectators were shown the new facilities with a modern feel and spacious walkways - certainly an improvement on Ninian Park.



he first game saw two 'legends' teams take the field including a host of familiar names - the star of the show was undoubtedly former fans favourite Graham Kavanagh whose display suggests he would still be an asset to the Bluebirds today.



t was fitting that Kav, who has previously mentioned a desire to coach/manage the Bluebirds in the future, scored the first ever goal at the new stadium - it was a sazzling 60 yard run and neat finish from the edge of the area - Kav's side ended up winning 3-1.



ther notable participants included Andy Legg, Leo Fortune-West, Carl Dale and Json Perry while club director Steve Borley made a welcome cameo as a goalkeeper.



n all, it was a good day and left the vast majority impressed. The turnstyles caused few problems, but a defecit of programmes and some astronomical bar prices took a little shine off the day. At just a fifth capacity, the atmosphere was still OK and it should be a fantastic venue for the forthcoming season - especially for the sell-out games.
