UWIC INTER CARDIFF AFC
INTER Cardiff, as they were called initially, were formed in 1990 from Sully AFC who had risen through the Barry and District League thence the South Wales Amateur League. They took over the Cwrt-yr-Ala ground, shared previously with the disbanded AFC Cardiff, thus acquiring the facilities required to compete in the top division of the Welsh Football League.
The poor facilities at the club’s previous Burnham Avenue ground had prevented Sully AFC from being promoted to the Welsh League National Division despite being champions or runners-up several times in the 1980s.
Although the club finished in 12th spot in 1991/92 they were invited to become founder members of the newly established League of Wales in August 1992. Good sponsorship and a move to the superior facilities of the Cardiff Athletics Stadium ensured a very successful first season.
After leading the table for months, they were eventually overhauled by inaugural champions Cwmbran Town and suffered the disappointment of not being granted a place in the UEFA Cup.
The withdrawal of the club’s sponsors led to Max James taking over the reins, along with Cardiff City supremo Rick Wright, thus securing the use of Ninian Park for their home fixtures.
In 1993/94 they again finished second and this time were admitted into the UEFA Cup. The draw was unkind and in the Preliminary Round of the 1994/95 competition they were overwhelmed 8-0 on aggregate by Polish outfit GKS Katowice.

UWIC play at the University campus, but would probably ground share with Merthyr Tydfil if they regained Welsh Premier status
The following two seasons marked a period of reconstruction. Inter Cardiff then moved to Merthyr Tydfil in a groundshare agreement and former Everton and Scotland goalkeeper George Wood took over the manager's post.
During the 1996 close season the club earned a lucrative sponsorship deal with international tele-communications company CableTel, which meant a change of name for the club to Inter CableTel. They also returned to the Cardiff Athletics Stadium and negotiated a “Football in the Community” agreement with the City of Cardiff local authority. In 1996/97 Inter finished second to all-conquering Barry Town and gained a massive reward in the form of a UEFA Cup tie against Glasgow Celtic. They did themselves and the League justice against the Scottish club, despite losing on aggregate. Indeed, the second leg at Celtic Park was watched by a crowd of more than 40,000.
1997/98 saw Inter CableTel challenging for a top three finish, but they narrowly missed out on a European place. Manager George Wood further strengthened his squad ready for the new campaign, looking for a quick return to Europe only to see his team slip into fourth spot at the end of that season behind Barry Town, Newtown and Ebbw Vale. Undaunted, Inter were back to their best the following year yet the strength of Barry Town meant that Inter became ‘bridesmaids’ once again, finishing as runners-up in the league title chase for the fourth time in seven seasons.
European disappointment followed at the start of what turned out to be a disastrous 1999/2000 season. A 2-0 defeat away to Slovenian side Gorica (both goals in the last quarter hour) in the UEFA Cup left Inter much to do in the home leg. Nevertheless, they battled manfully and when Carl Mainwaring netted with more than 30 minutes remaining, Inter were in with a real chance of progressing.
However, it was not to be, although the 1-0 home victory could be savoured as Gorica went on to become runners-up that season in the Slovenian national league.

The UWIC squad for 2003/4
For Inter CableTel, however, matters went sadly awry and the loss of much of the playing staff as the campaign progressed, to be replaced by the students of Welsh League side UWIC, saw Inter slide into the relegation dogfight. Although they escaped, a meagre return of just three league victories in 2000/01 (albeit one of them against champions Barry Town!) saw the re-named UWIC Inter Cardiff lose League of Wales status.
In 2003/4, UWIC are maintaining a strong challenge for promotion from the Welsh League. They have applied for membership of the Welsh Premier and, if successful, are once again proposing a ground share at Merthyr.
