Rownd Gyn-derfynol Cwpan Academi Cymru Dan-14 / U-14 Welsh Academy Cup Semi Final

Porthmadog ... 0		Derwyddon Cefn Druids ... 3

Sicrhaodd y ddwy gl a ddaeth yn chwarter awr gyntaf yr ail hanner mai Derwyddon 
Cefn oedd yn rheolir rownd cyn derfynol o Gwpan Academi Cymru ar y Traeth neithiwr 
(11 Mai). Yn yr hanner cyntaf hogiau Port oedd yn bygwth fwyaf ond yn methu cymryd 
mantais o nifer o cyfleoedd a grwyd gyda chwarae celfydd. Ond er fod y ddau golwr 
wedi gorfod gwneud arbediadau da, di-sgr oedd hi ar yr hanner. O ddechraur ail 
hanner cyflymodd y Derwyddon eu gm gan ymosod yn fwy uniongyrchol a wneud defnydd 
da or gwynt cryf. Pum munud i fewn ir ail hanner aethant ar y blaen diolch i bl 
dda o ganol cae gydar ymosodwr yn cymryd y cyfle yn dda. 10 munud yn ddiweddarach 
daeth yr ail gl ir Derwyddon yn dilyn symudiad da gydar bl yn cael ei phenio 
ir rhwyd o 10 llathen. Daliodd hogiau Port i frwydro a chyn y diwedd llwyddo i 
greu un neu ddau o gyfleoedd eu hun yn erbyn tm mawr a chryf y Derwyddon. Ond 
noson yr hogiau o Wrecsam oedd hon gyda trydedd gl yn dod yn yr amser ychwanegol 
o ergyd wych o 30 llathen. Pob hwyl ir Derwyddon yn y Ffeinal. 

Two goals in the 15 minutes immediately after half-time put Cefn Druids in control of 
last nights (May 11) Welsh Academies Cup semi-final at the Traeth. In the opening 
half the Port youngsters had been the more threatening and will rue the fact that they 
failed to take advantage of the chances which they created resulting from some good 
approach play. Though both keepers had to pull off some smart saves it remained 
scoreless at half-time. From the start of the second period the Druids upped the pace 
and made good use of the stiff breeze on their backs to launch more direct attacks. 
Five minutes into the second period a fine through ball split open the home defence 
and was well taken by the Druids front man to open the scoring. 10 minutes later they 
added a second thanks to a slick move finished with a good header from 10 yards. To 
their credit the Port lads stuck to their task against a big forceful Druids outfit, 
but though they came back to create a few late chances this was the Druids night. 
They added a third with a powerful 30 yard strike in injury time. Best of luck to Cefn 
in the final.

Mewn brwydr galed rhwng dau dm talentog, ar gaer Oval, Caernarfon 
llwyddodd tm Dan-16 Porthmadog ennill lle yn Ffeinal Cwpan Academi Cymru 
drwy guro eu cyfoedion o Gei Conna o 3-1. Ond nid ywr sgr yn dweud y stori 
gyfan gan ni ddaeth 3ydd gl Port tan 3 munud i mewn i amser anafiadau pan 
gymerodd Cai Jones fantais o bl dda i fewn ir blwch or dde i daranur bl i 
gefn y rhwyd o 15 llath. Roedd Port wedi cychwyn y gm yn dda Iwan ac am yr 
ugain munud agoriadol wedi edrych yn debycach i agor y sgorio ond gyda 25 munud 
wedi mynd manteisiodd Cei Conna ar gamgymeriad yn y cefn i agor y sgorio. O hyn 
ymlaen tan hanner amser hogiau Cei Conna oedd yn rheoli ac yn edrych yn debygol 
o sgorio eto. Ond daeth Port allan ar l yr egwyl yn benderfynol o ddod ar sgr 
yn gyfartal. Daeth y cyfle ar l 55 munud wrth i amddiffynnwr lawior bl gan 
rhoi cic or smotyn i Port. Tarodd Iwan Lane y bl ir rhwyd gyda ergyd gywir. 
Er fod y chwarae yn mynd o un pen ir llall ar l 67 munud Port sgoriodd yr ail 
gl holl bwysig wrth i Cai Jones basion gelfydd i roir Jac Jones gweithgar 
drwodd i guro golwr Cei Conna gyda ergyd dda. Port oedd ar y blaen am y tro 
cyntaf ond roedd y deg munud olaf yn llawn tensiwn wrth i Cei Conna ddal i 
frwydro -tan i Cai Jones sgorio trydedd gl Port a gwneud y fuddugoliaeth yn 
sicr.

In a hard fought semi-final, between two talented teams at Caernarfon Towns 
Oval ground Porthmadog U-16s secured a place in the Welsh Academies Final by 
defeating their Connahs Quay counterparts by 3-1. The score line does not tell 
the whole story as the third Port goal came deep into injury time when a cross 
from the right was played into the box for Cai Jones to settle the game with a 
powerful strike. Port had started the game well and for the first 20 minutes 
looked the more likely to open the scoring but after 25 minutes the Nomads took 
advantage of an error to open the scoring. From then on to half time the Nomads 
took charge and might have increased their lead. But straight from the start of the 
second period Port piled on the pressure and when a Nomads defender handled in the 
box Iwan Lane levelled the scores with a well struck 55th minute spot kick. Play 
was end to end but with 67 minutes gone Cai Jones slipped the ball through for the 
hard working Jac Jones to burst into the box and take his chance well putting Port 
in the driving seat. The final ten minutes was full of tension as the Nomads fought 
hard to get back on level terms and this continued until Cai Jones finally made the 
game safe.

Aeth y tm Dan-12 drwodd i rownd gynderfynol y gystadleuaeth gyda perfformiad 
ardderchog yn Cefn Mawr. Ar l dim ond 10 munud sgoriodd Jordy Wood o 
groesiad Steffan Owen iw rhoi ar y blaen. Dwy funud yn ddiweddarach sgoriodd 
Meilir Williams yr ail yn codir bl dros y golwr ar l derbyn pas Liam 
Murphy. Er eu bod yn edrych y tm cryfaf ni ychwanegwyd gl arall tan dwy

wrth i Cefn wthio mlaen  a 15 munud or diwedd fe cawsant eu gl. Ond 
ymatebodd Port gyda ail gl Meilir Williams gan wneud y gm yn ddiogel.
				  
The U-12s reached the semi-finals of the competition with another excellent 
performance at Cefn Mawr. After only 10 minutes they went ahead with Jordy 
Wood converting a Steffan Owen cross. Two minutes later Meilir Williams added 
a second with a chip over the keeper after receiving from Liam Murphy. The 
continued to dominate but did not score again until two minutes after the 
break when David Owen netted following another Steffan Owen cross. Cefn then 
pushed forward more giving Port keeper Ifan Williams far more to do and with 
15 minutes left they scored to cut the deficit. But as the home side pushed 
forward Port responded with another Meilir Williams goal to make the game safe.

Gm Academi Gyfeillgar Dan-14 / U-14 Academy Friendly Match

					George Sutherns
					Aron Griffiths
					James Rankin 

Trefnwyd y gm hon ar y funud olaf ac or herwydd  roedd y tm Dan 14 yn brin o 
rhai or chwaraewyr arferol. Felly cafodd pedwar eu cyfle cyntaf iAcademi. 
Roedd tempo cyflym ir gm gyda Port y mynd r gm i wrthwynebwyr au curodd 
4-0 yn ddiweddar. Gwobrwywyd eu hymdrech ar l 10 munud pan saethodd George 
Sutherns yn bwerus ir rhwyd ar l derbyn pas Aron Evans. Daeth yr ail pan g
urodd Aron Griffiths amddiffynnwr  ar y chwith gan saethu yn uchel ir rhwyd. 
Daeth y drydedd o gic gornel Cain Thomas ir postyn agosaf lle roedd James 
Rankin i rwydo gyda foli. Roedd diffyg eilyddion yn golygu fod hogiau Port yn 
dechrau blino tra roedd Cefn yn medru newid eu chwaraewyr. Daeth Cefn fwy ir 
gm a llwyddo i dynnu dwy gl yn l. Ond dal allan am y fuddugoliaeth gwnaeth 
Port. Rhaid tynnu sylw at berfformiad George Sutherns yn arwain y lein a hefyd 
Callum Evanson, Josh Rankin, James Rankin a Cain Thomas yn chware ir Academi am 
y tro cyntaf. Ond rhaid pwysleisio mai buddugoliaeth tm oedd hwn. Da iawn 
hogiau.

For this hastily arranged match Porthmadog U14s found themselves short of some 
regular players and debuts were handed to four boys new to the Academy. The game 
itself was played at a great tempo and Porthmadog showed their intent to take the 
game to Druids who had beaten them 4-0 a few weeks ago. Their efforts were 
rewarded after 10 minutes when George Sutherns latched onto a through ball played 
from midfield by Aron Evans and unleashed a fierce shot that left the Druids 
goalkeeper with no chance. A second goal came when Aron Griffiths picked up the 
ball on the left, beat his defender and from a tight angle lashed the ball high 
into the Druids net. The third goal came from a corner taken by Cain Thomas 
towards the near post where James Rankin met it perfectly and unleashed an 
unstoppable volley into the back of the net. The lack of substitutes began to show 
as the Porthmadog lads began to tire and Druids who were able to rest their boys by 
changing personnel came more into the game and clawed back two goal Port. managed 
to hold out for a very well deserved victory. Special mention must be made of 
George Sutherns for the way he led the line and Callum Evason, Josh Rankin, James 
Rankin and Cain Thomas who all started for the first time. But I must stress that 
this was a team victory, well done all the lads.
Chris Jones. Head Coach Porthmadog Academy Under 14s.

Aeth Port Dan-16 drwodd ir rownd gynderfynol diolch i gl, gan Jac Jones, pum munud 
cyn ddiwedd yr amser ychwanegol. Cefn ddechreuodd orau gan fynd ar y blaen ar l dim 
ond 5 munud ond yn raddol daeth Port fwy ir gm gyda Jac Jones yn dod r sgr y

blaen cyn yr egwyl. Ar y cyfan Port oedd yn rheoli yn yr ail hanner a daeth Dylan 
Williams r sgr yn cyfartal gyda cic or smotyn. Aeth y gm wedyn i amser 
ychwanegol a torrodd Jac Jones i lawr y cae i roir fuddugoliaeth i hogiau Port. 
Enillodd y tm Dan-16 pob un ou gemau grwp a gwnaethant yn dda iawn i guro tm cryf 
y Derwyddon a oedd cynt wediu curo o 3-0 mewn gm cynghrair.

A goal in extra-time by Jac Jones with only 5 minutes remaining secured Ports place 
in the semi-final. Cefn had started the brighter and went ahead after only 5 minutes 
but Port gradually got themselves back into the game with Jac Jones scoring after 25 
minutes to level the scores. Sloppy defending allowed Druids back into the lead just 
before the interval. Port were mainly in control in the second period and levelled 
the scores thanks to a penalty by Dylan Williams. This took the game into extra-time 
and Jac Jones break away goal gave Port the victory. The U-16s remained unbeaten 
through their group matches and did well against a strong Druids team who had 
previously beaten them in a league match by 3-0.

Chwaraewyd Cwpan yr Academi ar y brif gae ar Y Traeth. Sul, 22 
Mawrth 2009.
Or cychwyn gwnaeth y tm Dan 14 yn fawr ou cyfle i chwarae ar 
gae mawr Y Traeth gan ddefnyddiou asgellwyr yn dda a gorfodi 
Caernarfon i amddiffyn. Roedd Aron Griffiths yn rhedeg canol y cae

yn dda iawn. Roedd hi ddim yn syndod felly pan aeth Port ar y blaen

This much postponed eliminator in the Academies Cup Competition was 
finally played on the main pitch on Sunday 22 March 2009.
Straight from the kick off the Porthmadog U14s settled into a 
pattern of play ideally suited to the wide open spaces of the Traeth, 
using their wide players to good effect to keep Caernarfon on the 
defensive. Aron Griffiths in particular bossed the midfield and 
George Sutherns, showing a great workrate, led the line excellently.
It was no surprise when on 25 minutes the deadlock was broken with a 
brilliantly taken goal by Tomos Llewelyn Jones. A Port. corner was 
cleared to the edge of the box where Tomos controlled the ball on his 
chest and unleashed a left foot volley that screamed into the top 
corner.
In the second half Porthmadog continued in the same vein and created 
a number of chances which were either spurned or saved by the 
excellent Caernarfon Goalkeeper who kept his side in the game on a 
number of occasions. Finally though he was beaten by a great goal from 
Aron Griffiths. Embarking on a strong run down the left Aron broke 
into the penalty box and unleashed an unstoppable drive across the 
goalkeeper into the top corner. This was after 50 minutes and 5 
minutes later the win was sealed when George got just reward for all 
his hard work by scoring the third after a goalmouth melee.
This was a very enjoyable game to watch with both sides playing 
football as it should be played in a great spirit. The game was 
further enhanced by the outstanding refereeing performance by Terry 
Williams. We are very grateful to Terry and our panel of referees who 
give up their Sunday mornings to make sure our lads get a game of 
football.
Finally may I also say that the support from the stands from parents 
and friends was very much appreciated by the boys and by the coaches.

Eddie Blackburn (With thanks to Chris Jones)
