Port retained the Pathfinders Cup on a fine summy evening at the Traeth tonight. Late replacement challengers Barmouth & Dyffryn made Port work hard for their victory. The game was played before a large crowd, boosted by the presence of the Pathfinders on their annual visit to Cricieth bringing with them their unique and refreshing brand of enthusiastic support.
Barmouth held Port during the opening half and it remained scoreless at the interval. Four minutes into the second period Meilir Williams put the home side ahead and midway through the half Cai Jones extended the lead and that is how the score remained at the end
The Porthmadog club would like to thank Barmouth and Dyffryn for coming in at a very late stage and ensure that the tonight’s fixture could go ahead. We wish our visitors well in the coming season.
Pre-season fixtures are now at an end and the battle for league points starts on Saturday with the visit of Gresford.

All the goals came in the first half with Port getting an early foothold scoring twice in three minutes in the opening quarter of the game and though the visitors cut the deficit midway through the opening half, Port’s two goal advantage was restored just before the interval and that was the end of the scoring. The numerous changes which came at the beginning of and during the second half made for some disjointed play and though plenty of chances were created there was no further sddition to the score.
Oswestry started the game in lively fashion but were soon pegged back as Port got into their stride Julian Williams had an early shot blocked and Joe Chaplin’s angled shot went across goal and wide. The North West Counties club responded with Lee Phelan going close and the same player’s free kick a minute later had to be scrambled clear. But with only 13 minutes having elapsed Port took the lead when Julian Williams cut the ball back from the byline into the path of Joe Chaplin whose angled shot beat Mike Jones in the visitors’ goal. Three minutes later and Port doubled their advantage with a cracker of a goal. A super strike from Leon Doran wide on the right thundering past Mke Jones high into the corner of the net. But against the run of play it was Oswestry who found the net after 22 minutes. Good play down the right lead to a cross from dangerman Joe Newton, one of a a series of good crosses overlapping down the right.The cross was met by Dan Tinsley who rose unchallenged to head past Tyler French. Despite this setback Port looked the most likely to add to their score. Sion Bradley’s corner was played back to Ifan Emlyn whose shot thumped the cross bar. Keeper ike Jones was by far the busier of the two keepers and needed to be his best to keep out a close range effort from Joe Chaplin. Two minutes short of the interval Port restored their two goal margin when Ifan Emlyn lifted a measured pass ove the Oswestry defence for Julian Williams to race on to and turn the ball wide of the keeper and into the net. 3-1 at half-time.
There were numerous changes in both line-ups for the second half and this contributed to some rather dis-jointed phases in the second period.But despite the lack of fluency there were still plenty of goalmouth incident especially from the home team. Meilir Williams was in the thick of the action coming close on a number of occasions. There was a good debut performance from Jake Jones and a lively one from Rob Evans who had a dangerous looking shot blocked for a corner and, when Sion Bradley lifted a dangerous corner, Rob was unlucky to see his effort strike the post. There were also a couple of long range efforts from Gareth Jones Evans, one after a good diagonal run. Oswestry also had their moments with Joe Newton lifting a shot over the bar and a powerful strike from Jovi Rainford going close. The nearest they came to finding the net, however, came when Dan Tinsley’s individual effort needed a good save from Richard Harvey to keep the score at 3-1 in Port’s advantage.
Anothe good performance from Port, escpecially in the first half, as they put some fluent moves together. There have been lots of excellent individual performances during pre-season, which suggests that there will be some keen competition for starting places when the opening HGA fixture against Gresford comes along on 9 August.

A solid performance by Port earned them a deserved share of the spoils in today’s friendly. Though the Welsh Prem club enjoyed the lion’s share of the possession, too many misplaced passes together with a well organised Port defensive performance meant that Tyler French in the home goal was not unduly troubled. A goal either side of the half-time interval for each team provided the only scoring of the afternoon.
Bala started strongly and soon pushed Port back into their defensive half but failed to test French and indeed it was a good break by Julian Williams which produced the first real threat on goal with a good run and turn but failed to get real power on the shot and the Bala keeper, Ashley Morris stretched full length to save.Bala responded winning a corner on the left and when the ball broke free Burke struck powerfully but Ifan Emlyn was well placed to block on the line. Two minutes on and a good ball was played through for Sheridan but French pulled a smart save to deny him. Though Bala continued to enjoy a large share of possession Port were now providing more of a threat on the break. Twice Sion Bradley was involved down the left: the first a good exchange with Julian Williams resulted in an angled shot which struck the side netting and minutes later, having been put away by Cai Jones, his shot went dangerously across the face of goal. But it was Bala who had the last word of the opening half when Jordan Evans broke into the box on the right and unleashed a powerful low shot which found the bottom corner of the net.1-0 to Bala at the interval.
The game re-started with a number of substitutions. Port enjoyed a good passage of play 10 minutes into the half and in the 59th minute they drew level. Following a good Port build up the ball reached Sion Bradley on the edge of the box and his well judged through ball put Leon Doran in behind the visitors’ defence and Doran took his chance coolly, side footing into the far corner. Bala responded with a break down the left and a fiercely struck shot from Jordan Evans struck the crossbar. Port were still looking dangerous on the break and just past the hour mark Julian williams played a ball across the face of goal but again there was no final touch. A good break and turn in the box from Sion Bradley provided another scoring chance but the shot was blocked and cleared. In the latter stages Bala pushed forward and forced a corner on the left. Stephens corner provided Stuart Jones with a good opportunity but his header veered wide of the post. A free kick from Stephens followed but it flew over the bar and when Venables worked an opening for himself the defensive cover did its job and the shot was blocked and cleared. The game ended in a huge thuderstorm and when referee Martin Roberts blew the final whistle players and officials were glad to race for the shelter of the changing rooms.

Daeth Llanuwchllyn i’r Traeth heno ar gefn tymor da iawn yng Nghynghrair WNL, ardal Wrecsam, a rhoi gêm galed iawn i Port. Mewn hanner cyntaf tynn, nhw gafodd y cyfleoedd gorau. Daeth cyn amddiffynnwr Port, Gwydion Ifan, yn agos iawn ddwywaith, Ar ôl hanner awr tarodd y postyn efo ergyd bwerus a chyn diwedd yr hanner bu’n rhaid i Richard Harvey gwneud arbediad da i’w rhwystro. Yr agosa i Port ddod i sgorio yn yr hanner cyntaf oedd ergyd gynnar gan Rob Evans, gyda’r golwr yn cael cyffyrddiad i godi’r bêl dros y trawst.
Roedd Llanuwchllyn yn dal i gadw’r gêm yn gyfartal iawn yn yr ail hanner gyda’u chwarae cyflym a’u cau lawr sydyn, hyn yn rhwystro gêm basio arferol Port. Daeth y ddwy gôl mewn munud yn yr ail hanner. Derbyniodd Cai Jones pêl dda o’r dde gan ergydio. Gwthiodd y golwr y bêl i lwybr Chris Jones a rhwydodd o ychydig llathenni. Ymatebodd yr ymwelwyr yn syth gan dorri’n gyflym lawr y dde. Torrodd yr asgellwr i’r bocs a sgorio gyda ergyd bwerus.
Llanuwchllyn, who enjoyed an excellent season in the Wrexham area WNL, gave Port a really testing workout tonight. In a tight first period the better chances fell to the visitors. Former Port defender Gwydion Ifan was very unlucky not to put Llanuwchllyn ahead when a well struck shot thundered againt the post. Richard Harvey needed to pull off a good save to deny the same player just before the interval. The nearest Port came to scoring came from a Rob Evans effort which was tipped over the bar.
Llanuwchllyn continued to match Port in the second period as their high tempo game disrupted Port’s usual passing game. Both goals came in the space of a minute with Port first to strike after 73 minutes. A good cross from the right found Cai Jones whose shot was parried away by the keeper only for Chris Jones, following up, to net from close range. The visitors responded immediately with a break at pace down the right. The winger cut inside and lashed an angled shot past Tyler French.

Cychwynnodd Port eu tymor yn yr haul yn Y Bermo, ar gae ardderchog Wern Mynach o flaen torf dda, gyda phawb yn llewys eu crys.
Cafwyd cyfnodau gwerthfawr ar y cae i bob aelod o’r garfan ac roedd yr amodau yn ffarfiol iawn i’w gêm o basio a symud. Roedd Port ar y blaen yn gynnar a tair ymlaen erbyn yr hanner diolch i hatric gan prif sgoriwr y tymor diwethaf, Julian Williams.Y gyntaf yn ergyd wych o 18 llath, yr ail wrth iddo symud o’r chwith a chreu lle iddo’i hun, ar drydedd o gornel Gareth Jones Evans.
Roedd nifer o newidiadau ar yr hanner ond y gêm pasio a symud yn parhau. Ifan Emlyn, cyn chwaraewr i Academi Port a seren i Dan 19 Bangor llynedd, oedd y sgoriwr gyda ergyd wych o 25 llath i gornel y rhwyd. Roedd hefyd yn amlwg yng nghanol cae gyda’i symud a phasio cywir. Gwyneb newydd arall a gafodd gêm dda oedd y cefnwr Leon Doran, Daeth gôl ei gefnder Julian o bêl ar draws gan Leon. Roedd y trydydd wyneb newydd, Paul Grant, yn ddylanwad pwyllog yn y cefn.
Port kicked off their pre-season with a game in the Barmouth sunshine on an excellent Wern Mynach surface in front of a large shirt-sleeved crowd.
It proved to be an excellent work out for Port with conditions ideal for their passing and movement. A first half hat-trick for last season’s leading scorer Julian Williams put Port in the driving seat. The first was a cracker from 18 yds followed by two more just before the interva.l The first of the two coming after he cut in from the left made room for himself and steered the ball past the keeper into the net and the second he scored at the near post from a Gareth Jones Evans corner.
There were many changes for the second half and Port continued to pass and move intelligently as in the first half. The only goal of the half came from Ifan Emlyn -and what a goal finding the corner of the net with a perfectly placed effort from 25 yards. Ifan is a former Port Academy player who last season starred for Bangor’s U19 team. In addition to his goal he showed up well in midfield with his energy and crisp passing. Leon Doran at right back was another newcomer to show up well and his assist helped cousin Julian Williams to score the first Port goal, A third newcomer, Paul Grant, was a steadying influence at the back,
All in all a very enjoyable afternoon with Craig Papirnyk commenting afterwards on Twitter “Thanks to Barmouth for a Good afternoon of football . 1st one out the way for @CPDPorthmadogFC , now on to Tuesday for more minutes !” Interesting post match comment regarding Ifan Emlyn from Mike Smith (Citizen’s Choice) again via Twitter “A very promising youngster at the right club for his development”
