The Cardiff City Blue Dragons were formed in 1981 and played out of Ninian Park. The club spent three seasons in the Welsh capital; before eventually moving to Bridgend in 1984. However, due primarily to poor crowds, the venture flopped and the club eventually folded.
The Blue Dragons enjoyed three seasons at Ninian Park but failed to win promotion from league's Second Division to the top-flight and eventually folded in 1985 following a year in Bridgend.
Dai Watkins, now President with the Celtic Crusaders, was one of the driving forces behind the Blue Dragons and the club did enjoy some success. Over 10,000 were at Ninian Park for their opening fixture - a narrow home reverse at the hands of Salford.

I have the Colts league final table for the 1981-82 season Alan and Cardiff are not in it! Did they just play friendlies? I was a Salford fan in those days and I was at that first game in Cardiff. I have the programmes for all of Cardiff's home games that season. There may be some info on Colts in them, but I don't know when I will have time to dig them out and have a look mate?
Thanks for the message. I went to quite a few games during their 3 year and was also at the Salford game.
I've got all the programmes, and I have a full fixture list for the Colts team for that season 1981-82, but only a couple of results. I'll have to go through the programmes again (later today - Friday). I presume if they are not in the final table they must have dropped out part way through the season.
I'd appreciate a copy of the table if at all possible, a scan or photocopy would be fine.
Just started checking and I had the details of the Colts team incorrectly attributed to 1981-82 season when it was actually the 1983-84 season.
I don't need the table for 1981-82 but I do now need the Colts League table for 1983-84
