North Wales Coast F.A. Cup Quarter Final    -Wednesday, April 2nd

Colwyn Bay .... 1    Porthmadog ..... 4
Marc Evans 36        Gareth Caughter 25
                                Carl Owen 38
                                Gareth Parry 58
                                Campbell Harrison 67

A change of scenery , visiting Llanelian Road home of  Unibond Premier
strugglers Colwyn Bay, proved to be business as usual for Porthmadog as they
put in  another polished performance to clinch a semi-final place for
themselves.

The home side opened strongly playing the game at pace and making extensive
use of the long ball to put the Port defence under pressure during the early
part of the game. Carl Furlong had a couple of early chances first heading a
long Marc Evans cross wide of the mark and a few minutes later sent a lobbed
effort well wide after a burst through the centre. But gradually the
visitors worked themselves back into the game with Carl Owen and Ritchie
Owen combining well along the left flank. After 25 mins Carl Owen won
control of a high ball forward from Lee Webber and went on a cross field run
along the edge of the home penalty area before finding Gareth Caughter in
space on the right side of the box. The winger took a step forward before
unleashing a powerful 15yd drive which curled beyond the home keeper Mat
Boswell and put the Cymru Alliance side ahead.

Colwyn Bay pushed forward as they fought to get back on level terms and
Jason Jones came close with a header. Then in the 36th minute the Bay got
back on level terms when full-back Marc Evans took advantage of some sloppy
defending to score at the near post. This followed a good John Stannard
cross which was headed back across the goal and Evans was the first to
react.

It took Port only two minutes to restore their lead when  the ever dangerous
Carl Owen outwitted and outpaced his marker Paul Jones, to take advantage of
Ritchie Owen's ball into space and coolly beat Boswell with a well judged
lob.Port went in at half-time just about deserving their 2-1 advantage.

From the start of the second period the visitors were in command, now
playing their own skilfull brand of passing football. Gareth Parry almost
caught out Boswell with a speculative lob. From the resulting corner the
home defence scrambled the ball clear under pressure. But the pressure
continued and Mike Foster and Gareth Caughter worked a short corner on the
right,after 58 mins, and Lee Webber headed the former's cross back across
the goal.This was met by Gareth Parry's perfectly placed header into the
corner of the net from 14 yds.

The Unibond League side were now under constant pressure and even the
withdrawal of Port's outstanding attacker, Carl Owen, did not give the Bay
any respite. Defender Campbell Harrison came from the bench and took his
place up front, and much to the delight of the travelling supporters gained
his own moment of glory with an outstanding 67th minute goal. He fastened on
to a John Gwynfor pass from the right before cutting inside and let fly a 20
yd left foot special which curled into the top corner of the net.

The game was now over and skipper Mike Foster and Tony Williams were now
withdrawn and this gave a first opportunity for Borthygest teenager Dylan
Jones. Though the home side applied some pressure in the last  quarter of
the match they failed to threaten McGuigan's goal and had by now generally
run out of steam and ambition.

This was a fine all round performance by Port showing skill, committment and
organisation -a credit to the management. They also created four cracking
goals. In the semi-final they will meet Halkyn United.

Cymru Alliance League -Tuesday, March 25th

Holywell Town .... 0        Porthmadog .... 1
                            Dafydd Evans(pen) 77.

This was a game which totally failed to live up to it's pre-match billing of
top against bottom. Obviously nobody had informed Holywell that they should
just keel over when the league leaders were in town. They continued their
recent good run of form and in fact gave Porthmadog just about their
toughest challenge of the season . The  22nd victory of the season was not
finally secured until the 77th minute. Carl Owen bursting through on the
left of the box was brought down by home keeper Simon Clemence who rushed
out of his goal upending Owen just inside the penalty area. The referee, Mr.
J Couthard, had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and also handed
Clemence a yellow card. Up stepped, penalty-king, Dafydd Evans and despite
having to re-place the ball on the spot converted a real pressure spot kick
with a trade-mark blaster.

The game started at pace with both sides intent on attack, which makes it
all the more surprising that we ended with a solitary goal, and that from
the penalty spot. The Holywell goal survived a couple of early near
misses.Defender JohnHazeldene cleared off the line after 5 mins to deny
Gareth Caughter a goal and 2 mins later Steve Pugh's header glanced Dafydd
Evans' corner narrowly wide of the post. The home side were not in anyway
over awed and soon Simon Giddings was allowed to make ground from midfield
but McGuigan dealt cofidently with the ensuing shot. A couple of minutes
later and a good move down the left for Holywell created an opening for
Richie Roberts who drew a good save from McGuigan.

As the half wore on Port gained more of a grip on the game and first Pugh
shaved the bar with a shot from a narrow angle on the right and then Gareth
Parry received from Carl Owen and thundered a 25 yd effort which brought a
fine diving near post save from Clemence. The visitors defence  could not
relax however as a snapshot by Darren Edwards tested McGuigan again. Even
set piece moves, so productive throughout the season, were not delivering
the goods and Webber was off target when well placed from a Dafydd Evans
free-kick.

No quarter was asked or given as both sides started the second-half
determined to break the stalemate. Pugh received  a yellow card for a tackle
in the 49th min. The pressure was now on the home goal as Carl Owen and
Gareth Caughter up front used their pace and combined well. Clemence saved
well diving at the feet of Carl Owen and then Owen again came close with a
header from an useful Foster cross. Just after the hour Carl Owen fastened
on to a well judged through ball before racing on into the box and then
agonised as he saw his shot roll narrowly past the post. Though most of the
pressure was now on the home goal the defence proved to be difficult to
break down and they still managed the occasional break and one from Edwards
required McGuigan to be at his best to keep the ball out at his near post.

Then came the incident which led to Evans' penalty which decided the match
and gave him his 10th goal of the season. Even then the home side were not
prepared to cave in and gave the league leaders an anxious final 10 mins and
the visiting supporters were well relieved to hear the final whistle. This
was agame of 100% commitment from both sides producing a tense and exciting
game which was a good advertisement fot the Cymru Alliance.

Holywell on this form deserve to stay up and if they do they will certainly
be a threat to all next season. Port showed themselves to be a team of
character  who can battle on when things are not going their way, and
tonight that paid off in the end.

Huws Gray Fitlock Cymru Alliance League     -Saturday, March 22nd.

Porthmadog .... 3          Flint Town .... 1
Gareth Caughter 45,65.    Kevin Thomas 60.
Carl Owen 46.

    Flint came to the Traeth as one of only two sides who have held Port
this season -having earned a draw at Cae Castell back in September. They
came with a very simple game plan to close down their opponents, hurry them
and deny them space to develop their passing game. To an extent, the plan
seemed to work well for it took the home side until just before half-time to
open their account.
  However, as the pressure increased on the visitors, they were forced to
concede a series of free-kicks  and as early as the 10th minute Kevin Thomas
received  a yellow card for a bad tackle on dangerman Carl Owen. He was
followed in referee Say's book by Darren Johnson for a heavy tackle on Steve
Pugh. The limited ambition of the Flint side was clearly illustrated by the
fact that the visitors did not manage a shot on goal until the 29th min when
Johnson tried a 20 yd effort which went wide of the upright.
    Tony Williams, Carl Owen and Steve Pugh threatened with clever runs for
the home side but failed to create any clear cut chances against a
competitive Flint defence. They forced a series of corners after the quarter
hour mark but for once Pugh and Webber failed to get on the end of Mike
Foster's inswingers.Towards the end of the first half Gareth Parry came
close with a header from an accurate Dafydd Evans cross and Steve Pugh burst
from midfield but saw his shot go wide of the mark. Then almost on the
stroke of half-time a thunderous Lee Webber long range effort was blocked,
and first to react was Gareth Caughter who quickly brought the ball under
control and drove past Andy Hughes via the underside of the crossbar.
    Port's narrow first half lead was quickly doubled just a minute into the
second period when a neat Gareth Caughter pass found Steve Pugh in space on
the right and the winger cut the ball back to Carl Owen whose low shot from
12 yds found the corner of the net. Port now enjoyed a good passage of play
with Pugh soon threatening down the right but this time Carl Owen saw his
shot go over the bar. Despite the pressure the home side failed to add to
their tally and on the hour mark they were punished for this when Flint
managed to force a corner on a rare surge up field. Kevin Thomas rose
unchallenged to head the corner past McGuigan and bring the visitors back
into the game. A couple of minutes later and it could have been all square
when a Lee Taylor free-kick from the right was not gathered by McGuigan and
it resulted in an almighty scramble before the home defence managed to clear
their lines.
    As Port regained composure scorer Thomas turned villain for under
pressure from Carl Owen he resorted to a bad tackle to halt him. This
brought a second yellow from Mr.Say. Flint were doubly punished when only
two minutes later Pugh  fed Carl Owen in the box, the striker's flick was
heading wide of the post when a diving  Gareth Caughter turned it into net
at the far post. The home side were now well in command but even though Carl
Owen came close with a lob, Ritchie Owen  had an effort touched over the bar
and Gareth Caughter came close to converting a fine Carl Owen cross, they
did not extend their lead. The later stages were notable for the
introduction of former Port favourite, Robert Williams, who has rejoined the
club from Cemaes.
    With fifteen straight home wins under the belt Port will entertain
Holywell for the final home game of the season in a fortnight's time. The
chance of seeing a full set on April 5th will surely bring a bumper
rowd  -be there!!

North Wales Coast Challenge Cup Round 3 -Saturday, March 15th.

Llangefni Town ...... 1        Porthmadog ..... 2
Graham Austin 65                Steve Pugh 18
                                            Lee Webber 76

    Port recorded their third competitive victory of the season against
promotion rivals Llangefni, having previously notched a League double, and
once again it was by the odd goal. Though the result remained in doubt right
up to the final whistle, that scarcely seemed likely in a first-half which
saw Port well in control and the solitary goal lead at the interval did them
scant justice.
    The visitors threatened from the off with Tony Williams just wide of the
mark in the first minute. The same player, who has been in a fine run of
recent form, was soon running at the home defence again but saw his effort
from the right go past the post. Austin was first to threaten for Llangefni
with an off target shot after 11 mins. Port, however, continued to be in
charge and it was no surprise when they took the lead in the 18th minute and
once again it came courtesy of an inswinging Mike Foster corner. The scorer
was no surprise either since Steve Pugh, another in a rich vein of form, has
scored 12 goals in the last 10 games only failing to get his name on the
score sheet on one occasion in those 10 matches. Today's effort was a close
range header.
    Port could have increased their lead two mins later  when Tony Williams
set up Carl  Owen with a well judged through ball but the angle proved too
acute and Richard Harvey saved well at the expense of a corner. Twice soon
after Port could have increased their lead and Carl Owen was extremely
unfortunate when he was blatantly pulled back by the last defender as he
outpaced a flat footed Llangefni defence. The referee's assistant, although
perfectly placed, chose to ignore the offence. The second came when Gareth
Caughter, this time, caught out the home defence but the visitors' appeals
for a foul on the edge of the area again fell on deaf ears.
    Llangefni attacks were rare but a long cross by Austin tested the Port
defence and Gareth Caughter was forced to give away a corner. Port were soon
on the offensive again and Carl Owen, once again put through by Tony
Williams, was unlucky to see his effort deflected for a corner. Owen himself
then turned provider but, last week's hat-trick man, Gareth Parry shot low
but Harvey gathered without difficulty.
    The early part of the second-half saw Llangefni come more into the game
and McGuigan was called upon to make his first real save of the match when
he had to deal with Jason Saddler's low shot from the left of the box.
Llangefni just about deserved to draw level in the 68th minute when
Wagstaffe turned well in the box and the ball ran loose to Graham Austin
whose well hit low shot entered the net near McGuigan's left hand post. Then
suddenly a bout of fisticuffs broke out which held up play for several
minutes while referee Tony Walsh sorted things out and as a result Jason
Saddler saw red and Gerard McGuigan yellow.
    The game now became an increasingly scrappy affair and Port were unable
to exert control on the game as they had done during the opening period
despite enjoying the advantage of an extra man. In the 76th minute, however,
Port scored what proved to be the decisive goal. Once again it was a
set-piece and again skipper Mike Foster was involved. This time it was a
free-kick near the right touchline after Tony Williams had been brought down
by home defender, John Roberts. Another good delivery by Foster and the
enthusiastic Lee Webber was first to react to send his looping header over
the outstretched arms of Richard Harvey.
    The game now petered out though Harvey was called upon to make another
useful save from Tony Williams and Wagstaffe shot over at the other end. The
visitors defence, well marshalled by Danny Hughes, maintained their grip and
ensured that it was Port who will visit Llanelian Road in the next round to
take on the exiles of Colwyn Bay.

Steve Pugh 9, 55.
Lee Webber 27
Tony Williams 36.
Gareth Parry 43, 50, 71
Carl Owen 61

Port totally dominated this fixture against a Guilsfield side who have
showed a recent upsurge in form following the appointment of Mike Barton
as manager. The visitors, who only a fortnight ago gained an excellent
victory against Llangefni, were soon aware that they were to be in for a
difficult afternoon.

Port came close after only 5 mins when Tony Williams took
advantage of a defensive lapse by Adam Burgess and supplied Gareth Parry
whose shot was blocked and it then fell to Caughter whose shot was off
target. Soon however Pugh was threatening down the right and forced a
corner. Foster crossed a well flighted ball from the ensuing 9th min
corner which Pugh nodded into the net from close range.By doing so Steve
Pugh became the first Port player to reach the ten goal mark in the league
this season.

The home side piled on the pressure and came close on numerous
occasions -Webber  with a spectacular overhead kick which was cleared off
the line and Carl Owen was unlucky to see his effort strike the outside of
the post \while Pugh, outpaced the defence only to see his shot hit the
side netting. Guilsfield in reply did manage a speculative 30 yds effort by
Mark Lunt which went close and McGuigan was called on to make a rare save
from Gareth Lewis following a quick counter-attack along the left.

Inevitably the home side went further ahead and it took another Mike
Foster corner to create the opening for Lee Webber whose looping header
went over the defence into the net. Then within six minutes came an
excellent third goal when Gareth Caughter broke on the left and delivered a
fine cross for Terry Williams to volley into the net at the back post. Two
minutes from half-time and Port added a fourth goal when mid-fielder Gareth
Parry found himself in space 25 yds out and thundered a right foot drive
past
Gareth Ashley.

Things did not get any better for the visitors after the interval for
within 5 minutes Gareth Parry following in at the back post, on to Mike
Foster's corner, drove into the net. It took only another 5 mins before
the sixth goal came when Steve Pugh took advantage of a poor kick by keeper
Gareth Ashley and burst into the box before placing his low shot into the
corner o the net. Just after the hour mark and Carl Owen added a well
deserved goal following a Tony Williams run from midfield. By so doing
Owen became the second Port player to reach the 10 goal mark in the league
this season.

The game by now had lost most of its urgency but there was still one
highlight left for the home supporters and it was Gareth Parry's hat-trick
goal. It came after 71 mins when he reacted quickly to take an advantage
of a quick throw-in by John Gwynfor and caught the defence flat footed. He
ran on into the box before placing his low shot past Ashley into the net.

The game now petered out into a quiet finish though Guilsfield did manage
a couple of late excursions into the Port area but could not manage a
consolation goal.

The home side marched to their 14th straight home league victory of the
season and maintain a 15 pt lead at the top of the table.

Lex XI  ...... 1           Porthmadog ..... 3
Mark Williams 66           Gareth Caughter 23
                           Steve Pugh 64
                           Carl Owen 75

Port's third victory of the season against Lex was not achieved without
a struggle against a determined and hard-working home side. Port match
winner was Steve Pugh who created two goals and scored one himself -his
eighth league goal of the season.

Port started the stronger but as the opening half wore on Lex grew in
confidence and overall probably had the edge during the first period. There
were only a few openings in the first half and the first of these came in
the 8th minute when the Port defence failed to clear and Mark Williams found
space in the box but his shot was diverted narrowly wide of the upright.
Then after 23 mins the visitors put themselves ahead with a well taken goal.
Carl Owen put Pugh away down the right and the speedy winger controlled well
and burst to the bye-line before crossing for Gareth Caughter, at full
stretch, to shoot low into the net from 12yds.

The visitors however failed to establish their usual control of the game
and the busy homesters allowed them little time to develop their passing
movements. Lex could have drawn level in the 37th min when it took a fine
save by McGuigan to keep out the dangeous Mark Williams. There was little
more goalmouth incident in the opening half though the Lex defence was at
full stretch to scramble away a Lee Webber header following a Mike Foster
corner.

Ten minutes into the second half Carl Owen should have put the visitors
further ahead when he turned well in the box, following an useful John
Gwynfor ball from the right, but whipped a low shot inches wide of the
post.A few minutes later and Owen was close again, this time following
Pugh's cross from the right. Lex were still, however, very much in the game
and soon had the visitors defence at full stretch as they scrambled the ball
clear with keeper McGuigan way out of his goal.

After 64 mins Port increased their lead when Carl Owen broke on the left
before his long cross found the unmarked Pugh whose powerful drive was
deflected into the net. It took Lex only two minutes to get themselves back
into the game when, the ever dangerous Kevin Breeze, opened up the visitors
defence with a fne direct run on the right before crossing a low ball for
Mark Williams to score from close range.

Port put themselves back in the driving seat with their third goal in
the 75th minute. This was also the best goal of the four and was worthy of
winning a game. John Gwynfor supplied Steve Pugh down the right and the
winger beat his marker before crossing an accurate and perfectly weighted
ball which Carl Owen met with a controlled glancing header past the
despairing stand-in keeper, Shaun Jones.

Even now the home side did not capitualate and they continued to apply
the pressure in the last quater of an hour. In the 86 minute Kevin Breeze
again burst down the right and McGuigan, in the Port goal, was relieved to
see it strike the foot of the upright.

Though this was not the most fluent Port performance the result
increased in significance with the news that Llangefni, Rhuthun, Buckley and
Llandudno had all slipped up and conceded vital points.

Port....................6 Amlwch....................0

Carl Owen 30.
Pugh 38, 83.
Evans (pen.) 49.
Caughter 80, 86.

Port bounced back to earn their fourth double of the season, after the minor
set-back of last week's draw at Holyhead. However, Port again failed to
shine in front of goal, and were lucky to be gifted their first goal by
Merfyn Williams, who needlessly handled the ball outside the box as Dave
Farr tried to chip the ball over his head. The referee had no choice but to
give him his marching orders and give Port a free kick that was superbly
converted by Carl Owen after Dafydd Evans' dummy shot.

The opener had taken half an hour to arrive, by which time Port had
squandered enough chances to put the game out of the reach of Amlwch. Even
after Darren Thomas had been called up as makeshift custodian, the hosts
were far from convincing in the final third. Webber headed just wide and
Farr crossed when he should have taken advantage of the stand-in keeper, but
on 38 minutes their lead had been extended. Gareth Caughter did well to
prevent the ball crossing the touch line, setting up Mike Foster for a cross
in the direction of Steve Pugh, who was given plenty of space in the box to
slot the ball in the bottom corner, leaving Thomas with no chance.

While Port were squandering their chances, Amlwch were finding it difficult
to create anything at the other end. Indeed they only had one opportunity in
front of goal during the entire first half. This came from a free kick
awarded after a foul by Lee Webber, but Andrew Roberts' attempt from the
right side of the box flew well over.

The home side were further ahead, four minutes into the second half as Dave
Farr was pulled down in the box following a Carl Owen run. A penalty was
awarded, and the dependable Dafydd Evans was never going to miss the target.
But, with Port virtually certain of victory we were in for a very dismal
second half, with Farr and Owen seeing several efforts going astray.
However, with Amlwch failing to muster any shots on target, Port's lead
never really seemed in any danger. As they continued to create the chances,
it only seemed a matter of time before the lead was extended, but it's a
good job we didn't hold our breaths as we had to wait untill ten minutes from
time before Gareth Caughter got the fourth - he turned in the box well before
shooting into the bottom corner following a Mike Foster corner.

Port's fifth was a corker, a superb shot by Steve Pugh from the left side of
the box that flew into the top right corner of the net - I doubt whether
Merfyn Williams would have got anywhere near the ball had he been between
the posts. Not to be out done by Pugh, Caughter completed his brace four
minutes from time after a cross from sub Tony Williams, to complete a
good six-minutes spell that saw Port doubling their lead and making up for
earlier misses.

Amlwch might feel a bit hard done by, after conceding a penalty and being
reduced to ten men, but they could hardly claim to be hard done by after
only creating three wayward chances in 90 minutes of football. However,
Port's failure to take full advantage of the chances they created, could
become an issue when they come up against some of the league's better sides.
