Blue, Blue, Blue Dragons

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.
