PORTHMADOG..........6 AMLWCH...........4

 While the scoreline might look impressive, but this wasnít as convincing
as it might seem, and a big improvement will be needed if Port are to win
the Cymru Alliance next season.
 The first half started well for Port, with them exerting most of the
pressure. The first goal came after 12 minutes, but it was a scrappy affair
- Olly Hall tapping in from a Martin Hines cross with the Amlwch defence
making a complete hash of things. But after 15 minutes Amlwch were back on
level terms. A great shot from long distance looping over Kenny Dixon in
goal.
         With Port still with the upper hand they took the lead after 20
minutes from a Stephen Pugh header after Chris Banks had headed against the
bar. Once again an Amlwch equaliser wasnít far behind, and again it was a
shot from distance which beat Kenny Dixon on 39 minutes. The second part of
the first half was scrappy with Amlwch having more of the ball - they could
even have taken the lead on half time, but Dixon save well at the feet of
the on-rushing attacker.
         The second half was much better for Port - Olly Hall starting the
scoring on the hour- rounding the keeper after a long run. But once again
it was only 5 minutes before Amlwch equalised, and for a third time it was
a long range shot. The next Port goal came from an own goal after Olly Hall
had put the defence under pressure, but once again it was followed by one
for Amlwch. This time it was on the rebound after an initial save from
Kenny Dixon.
         Probably the best Port goal was scored by Richard Hughes after 80
minutes. His powerful head from the edge of the box came from a Neil Jatt
cross. Olly Hall completed his hat-trick on the 90 minutes after the ball
came loose from a Martin Hines run.
         Mickey Thomas started the game for Amlwch sporting his new Ďskin
headí. In the second half his son had an impressive debut for Port creating
chances down the left wing.

PORTHMADOG..........2 BANGOR..........2

	This was the first pre-season friendly this season for both teams. In the
Bangor starting line-up was Paul Roberts who played for Porthmadog before
leaving for Wrexham on a £10,000 transfer to Wrexham. Disappointingly for
Bangor he didn't make much of a mark on the game, and was substituted in
the second half. As for the rest of the Bangor team - I couldn't recognise
any of them!
	The majority of the possession in a very even first half went Bangor's
way, but they failed to turn the possession into chances on goal. Phill
Owen, making his debut in goal for Port hardly had to make a save
throughout the half. Indeed, the best chance of the half went Porthmadog's
way, when Chris Banks' header went just wide after a cross by Mike Foster.
	Bangor exerted far more pressure in the early minutes of the second half,
but the Porthmadog defence looked sound. However they went AWOL for
Bangor's first goal, leaving four players un-marked, Paul Bodham (?) headed
home. However, Port were back on level terms half way through the second
half. Mike Foster scored with a brilliant effort from 30 yards.
	Bangor went back into the lead when the Port defence were again sleeping.
Phill Owen managed to get his hands to the initial shot but Ron Sheaperd
(?) blasted home after the rebound. But it wasn't over yet. Mike Foster was
the scorer for Port again, with a brilliant free kick from just outside the
box.
	Both teams looked weak on the attack. Bangor will have to improve if they
want to pose any threat to Haka in the Cup Winners Cup. The same goes for
Port if they are to win the Cymru Alliance.
