Gwelliannau o gwmpas y cae / Ground improvements


Bydd cefnogwyr wedi sylwi fod y datblygiadau o gwmpas y cae yn mynd yn eu blaen. Yn ei nodiadau yn y Rhaglen mae ysgrifennydd y clwb, Chris Blanchard, yn sn am y gwaith pwysig hwn, llawer ohono yn dal i fynd yn ei flaen.
Dros y blynyddoedd diweddar maer clwb wedi diodde oherwydd llifogydd.
Mae Chris yn dweud fod yna ddatblygiadau sylweddol wedi bod ir amddiffynfeydd yn erbyn llifogydd, gydar wal o flaen y Clwb wedi ei hadeiladu ac yn aros am ychydig waith gorffenedig.
Hefyd maer portacabin ar ymyl y cae wedi cael tro 90 gradd ac ei godi 60mm er mwyn cadw allan llifogydd posib. Mae llawer yn aros iw wneud ond maen addo i gefnogwyr y byddant yn gweld newid mawr yn ystod yr wythnosau nesa.
. Newid arall sydd ar y gweill ydy ir hen eisteddle wrth mynedfar chwaraewyr ir cae. Bydd hwn yn cael ei droi i fod yn storfa ar gyfer offer ymarfer a gemau, gan rhyddhau lle yn yr ystafelloedd newid i greu ystafell newydd gyda chawod at yr adegau pan fydd swyddogion o rhyw gwahanol ar ddyletswydd.
Diolchodd Chris yn arbennig i Rob Bennett a Clive Hague sydd wedi bod mor allweddol ir gwaith yma ac wedi cwblhau rhan helaeth ohono.

Supporters will have noted that developments around the ground are contnuing. In his match programmes notes club secretary Chris Blanchard draws attention to this important work some of which are ongoing.
The club has suffered serious flood damage over recent years to the Clubhouse in particular and Chris says:
Our flood defences have made great progress, the front defence wall to the front of the of the club house has been built and we are just waiting for the coping stones to be laid to finish the work off.
You may also have noticed that the portacabin at the side of the ground has been swung round 90 degrees and lifted 60mm to keep out potential flood water, there is still a lot to do but hopefully you will see a big difference in the coming weeks,
Finally the small old stand next to where the players enter the field of play is being converted into a storeroom for training and matchday equipment which will free up space in the changing rooms to create a new room, complete with shower, for those times when we have officials of different genders.
A very big thank you to both Rob Bennett and Clive Hague who have done the bulk of the work.

CEGIDFA / GUILSFIELD: Sad / Sat: Y Traeth 2.30pm.


Noddwyr / Match Sponsors: Grey Slate and Stone
Pnawn Sadwrn byddwn yn croesawu Cegidfa ir Traeth am y cynta o ddwy gm olynol yn erbyn y clwb or canolbarth. Cododd y sefyllfa anarferol hon am fod y rhestr gemau yn cael ei throi rwan fod yr hanner cynta or tymor wedii chwblhau. Mae gan Port wrth gwrs gemau a gohiriwyd, eto iw chwarae.
Gorffenodd Cegidfa yn y 3ydd safle y tymor diwetha, ond gyda nifer or tim hwnnw wedi symud ymlaen -gan gynnwys Iwan Lewis(llun) cyn chwaraewr canol cae Port, sydd bellach gyda Aberystwyth- nid ywr clwb wedi llwyddo hyd yma i ail adrodd y llwyddiant hwnnw. Ond mae canlyniadau diweddar wedi eu symud i un pwynt tu l i Port a byddant am godir pwyntiau iw symud i hanner uchar tabl.
Yn dilyn cychwyn digon boddhaol ir tymor mae Port wedi llithro yn ddiweddar gan golli 3 ou 4 gm ddiwetha. Chwaraeoddd anafiadau ac absenoldebau rhan y penwythnos diwetha, felly gobeithio am well lwc y Sadwrn yma.
YMA O HYD -150 mlynedd
Cmon Port!!

On Saturday we welcome Guilsfield to the Traeth for the first of a double-header against the mid-Wales club. This unusual situation has arisen because the fixture list, with its first half completed, is now reversed for the second-half of the season. Port of course have postponed fixtures from the first half still to play.
The Guils finished in 3rd place last season but with several of that successful team moving on -including former Port midfielder Iwan Lewis (inset), now at Aberystwyth- the club have not enjoyed the same level of success so far this season. Recent results have however moved them to within a point of Port and they will be looking for the win that could take them into the top half of the table.
Port, following a bright start to life back in the 2nd Tier, have suffered lately going down to 3 defeats in the last 4 games. Injuries and absences played their part at Buckley last weekend so lets hope for a clean bill of health this time round.
YMA O HYD -1872-2022
Cmon Port!!

Daw Bwcle ir gm ar gefn buddugoliaeth dda o 2-0 dros Prestatyn, yng Nghwpan JD Cymru gyda Aled Bellis yn rhwydo ddwywaith.

Bydd yna sialens yn dod pnawn Sadwrn.
Cmon Port

On Saturday Port travel to Buckley for a Cymru North fixture at Globe Way (CH7 3LY)
The game will kick off at the earlier time of 2pm.
With the top 3 pulling away from the rest, Saturdays game will be another case of a contest between two clubs in the congested mid-table. Buckley are one place above Port having played 2 more games.
The Bucks come into this game on the back of a good 2-0 JD Welsh Cup win over Prestatyn with Aled Bellis netting both goals. Port on the other hand had to sit out last weekends fixtures and will be looking to picking up points again following their narrow home defeat to Cefn Druids. The game will also bring Port up against former player Asa Hamilton.
Writing in the match programme coach Steve Williams (inset) spelled out the challenges ahead. Weve got a tough run ahead of us before Christmas against teams in and around us in the league. If we can pick up a few more wins and remain hard to beat, we will then be in a position at the start of the new year to push on and hopefully finish within the top half.
The next step in this challenge comes on Saturday.
Cmon Port !!

Port v DERWYDDON / Port v CEFN DRUIDS : Sad / Sat 2.30pm.


Noddwyr y Gm / Match Sponsors TOYOTA HARLECH
Bydd Port yn croesawur Derwyddon ir Traeth ar gyfer gm gynghrair pnawn Sadwrn. Gm rhwng y 5ed ar 6ed yn y tabl fydd hon. Maer ymwelwyr yng nghanol rhediad da yn ennill 4 ou 5 gem ddiwetha r unig gm iddynt golli yn y cyfnod oedd honno yn erbyn eu cymdogion o Gresffordd.
Bydd Port yn dod i hon ar gefn buddugoliaeth hwyr iawn oddi cartref yn erbyn Conwy. Tanlinellwyd yn y gm honno fod gemau bellach yn rhai rhwng dwy garfan o chwaraewyr, yn enwedig gan fod 5 eilydd yn cael eu caniatu. Mae Paps yn adeiladu carfan gryf a gwelwyd manteision hyn wrth ir ddau eilydd Stuart Rogers (llun) a Jamie McDaid gyfuno i sicrhaur fuddugoliaeth hwyr ar Y Morfa.
Ynghynt yn y tymor cyfarfur ddau glwb yng Nghwpan y Gynghrair pan wnaeth tm ifanc y Derwyddon orfodi Port i weithion galed am y fuddugoliaeth o 3-1.
Cmon Port!!

Cefn Druids will travel to the Traeth on Saturday for a Cymru North fixture between the 5th and 6th placed clubs. The visitors are in a good run of form having won 4 of their last 5 league games, The only loss coming against neighbours Gresford.
Port come to the game on the back of a late. late victory away at Conwy Borough. That game underlined the fact that games these days are very much between two squads of players, especially with 5 subs being allowed. Craig Papirnyk is building a strong squad. with the benefits clearly seen, when subs Stuart Rogers (inset) and Jamie McDaid combined to produce the late clincher at Y Morfa.
Earlier Port and Cefn met in a League Cup tie when a youthful Druids side made Port work hard for their 3-1 win.
Cmon Port!!

Golwg ar Port yn WELSH FOOTBALL / Spotlight on Port in WELSH FOOTBALL


Fel bob amser mae misolyn Tachwedd o WELSH FOOTBALL yn cymryd golwg dros y diweddara ym mhl-droed Cymru ac yn edrych yn arbennig ar CPD Porthmadog gyda erthygl 4-tudalen.
Gydar clwb yn dathlu 150 o flynyddoedd o fodolaeth ar 26ain Hydref mae dda gweld erthygl ardderchog Stuart Townsed yn bwrw golwg dros twf a datblygiad y clwb. Maer golygydd Dave Collins hefyd rhoi sylw ir Traeth ei hun gan ddweud:-
The Traeth ... is widely acknowledged as one of the best grounds in Welsh football.Its certainly been one of my absolute favourites ....
Bydd copau or cylchgrawn ar gael yn ystod y gm gydar Derwyddon pnawn Sadwrn neu cysylltwch Dylan Rees ar rees48wesla@gmail.com

In yet another wothwhile read, the November edition of WELSH FOOTBALL MAGAZINE puts Port under the spotlight with a 4-page feature on the club.
With the club celebrating 150 years of its existence on October 26th it is good to see the excellent article by Stuart Townsend taking a detailed look back at the growth and development of the club. Editor Dave Collins also looks at the Traeth itself and says:-

Jamie yn chwyldroi gm / Jamie at the double


Ychydig iawn feddyliodd y dilynwyr selog am y math o effaith fyddai Jamie McDaid yn ei gael ar y gm yn erbyn Conwy pnawn Sadwrn. Daeth ir maes ar 85 munud, mewn gm a oedd yn ymddangos yn sicr fel gm ddi-sgr. Munud yn ddiweddarch a roedd y cyfan wedi newid fel mae Treflyn yn dweud yn ei adroddiad Ar 86 munud tarodd Ifan Emlyn bas wych i agor yr amddiffyn a chanfod Jamie, a gydai droed chwith ergydiodd y blaenwr heibio y golwr Farrar ..
Erbyn ir amser ychwanageol ddod i ben roedd yr eilydd wedi ychwanegu ail gl, y tro yma gydar hunan hyder i fynd o gwmpas y golwr cyn rwydo. Dynar math o hyder syn troi gm ar ei phen, a dim yn ddrwg o gwbl am ymddangosoiad a barodd llai na 10 munud!
Cewch weld y goliau diolch i cameru Sgorio a byddant hefyd ar gael fel arfer ar Tu l ir Gl Cewch fynd ir ddau drwy blatfform Trydar Port.

Little did the Port faithful think the extent of Jamie McDaids impact would be on Satudays encounter at Conwy. He arrived on the scene in the 85th minute of a game that was drifting to an inevitable goalless draw. A minute later he had broken the deadlock and as Treflyn describes in his match report, On 86`, a splendid, low defence-splitting pass by Ifan Emlyn found Jamie McDaid in space and he placed his left-footed first-timer past the onrushing Farrar..
Before added time was completed the super-sub had added a second goal this time with the self-cofidence to riund the keeper before netting. That is the kind of self-confidence that can turn a game on its head and not bad for an apperance which lasted less than ten minutes!
You can see the goals courtesy of the Sgorio cameras and later will be available on the popular Tu l ir Gl. Both can be accessed via Ports Twitter platform.

CONWY BOROUGH v CPD Porthmadog: Sadwrn / Saturday 2.30pm


Bydd Port yn gwneud eu taith fyrraf i gm oddi cartref wrth deithio ir Morfa i chwarae Conwy (LL32 8HA).
Er y golled y Sadwrn diwetha yn erbyn Treffynnon mae Port yn aros yn y 6ed safle yn y tabl. Ond o gymryd golwg ar y tabl hwnnw gwelwn mor dynn ydy pethau yn y canol, gyda 5 clwb ar 13 o bwyntiau a gall y safleoedd hynny newid yn sydyn os bydd pwyntiaun cael eu gollwng.
Consyrn i Port ydyr ffordd mae mantais gynnar yn cael ei ildio a dyna oedd yr hanes y penwythnos diwetha wedi i Gethin Maxwell (llun) rhwydo am y tro cynta i Port a Rhys Alun wedyn yn dyblur fantais.
Diolch i fuddugoliaeth o 2-5 dros Penrhyncoch mae Conwy bellach yn 11eg ac ar 12 pwynt un yn brin o gyfanswm Port syn 6ed. Sgoriwr gl gynta Conwy pnawn Sadwrn oedd John Littlemore (llun) a gyfranodd at ymdrech Port i sicrhau dyrchafiad y tymor diwetha.
Fel arfer yn y gynghrair hon -gm anodd.
Cmon Port !!

Port will make their shortest away journey of the season when they travel to Y Morfa ground to take on Conwy Borough (LL32 8HA).
Despite the home loss last weekend to Holywell Town, Port remain in 6th place in the Cymru North table. However, a look at that table reveals how congested mid-table is, with 5 clubs now on 13 pts but those positions can quickly change when points are dropped.
A worry for Port has been the way early leads have been pegged back and this was the case last Saturday after Gethin Maxwell (inset) netted his first Port goal and Rhys Alun doubled that lead.
A 5-2 win over Penrhyncoch last Saturday moved 11th placed Conwy on to 12 pts, just one adrift of Port in 6th place. The opening Conwy goal in that victory was netted by John Littlemore (inset) who, last season, played his part in Ports promotion effort.
Yet another tough one.
Cmon Port!!

150 MLYNEDD ac YMLAEN: Pl-droed Porthmadog 1872 -2022


Isod mae GERALLT OWEN, hanesydd y clwb, yn cofnodi gwreiddiau pl-droed yn y dref. Erbyn Hydref 2022, aeth150 o flynyddoedd heibio ers ir clwb cynta gael ei ffurfio. Rheswm i ddathlu!

Yn rhyfeddol, maen union 150 o flynyddoedd ers i glwb pl-droed gael ei sefydlu ym Mhorthmadog. Tipyn o ddirgelwch bur union amgylchiadau am ffurfior clwb. Am flynyddoedd maer clwb wedi gwthior syniad mai yn 1884 cafodd y clwb ei ffurfio a dyna oedd y dyddiad a nodwyd ar fathodyn y clwb, gan roi fwy o gred i 1884 fel dyddiad genir clwb. Yn wir roedd cryn dipyn o siom a chonsyrn ymysg swyddogion a chefnogwyr yn 1984 wrth i Port orfod dynnu allan o bl-droed am dymor oherwydd diffyg chwaraewyr ac adnoddau, a hynny ar adeg, a gredwyd, y dylair clwb fod yn dathlu canrif o bel-droed. Ond mae ymchwil diweddar wedi lluchio allan y ddamcaniaeth yma gan awgrymu fod y clwb wedii ffurfio dipyn ynghynt na 1884.
Gwelwn y cyfeiriad cynta at glwb pl-droed ym Mhorthmadog ym mhapur newydd y North Wales Chronicle ar HYDREF 26ain 1872. Mae erthygl byr yn dweud y canlynol:
On Monday evening the 21st inst a meeting convened by H.L. Price was held at the Head Quarters, Portmadoc when it was decided to form a ball club here. The Club is to be managed by a committee of seven members and on Monday the following gentlemen were elected to form the committee, Messrs Randell Casson, C. Roberts, R.W. Pugh, T.B. Humphreys, R. Isaac, J.H. Thomas and H.L. Price with J. Williams as Secretary. The subscription is to be two shilling and sixpence. Tuesdays and Saturdays have been set apart as side days when the places of business here all close at 7pm daily and many of the young men will, no doubt, be glad to join the club.
Wythnos yn ddiweddarach maer North Wales Chronicle yn egluro iw darllenwyr fel hyn:

In announcing in our last issue, the formation of the new club we omitted the word Foot. We are glad to understand that it is likely to be well patronised.

Cadarnhaodd y Caernarfon & Denbigh Herald, ar yr un wythnos, genedigaeth y clwb ac yn awgrymu fod gan aelodaur clwb criced ac athletau rhan yn y cychwyn hwnnw. Maer Herald hefyd yn enwi dau o unigolion oedd yn aelodau or pwyllgor. Maen ymddangos mai y Pencadlys a gyfeiriwyd ato yn yr adroddiad oedd pencadlys y 4ydd Caernarvon Rifle Volunteers a roedd hefyd yn cael eu adnabod fel y Portmadog volunteers. Roedd hwn yn fudiad amlwg yn y dref ac yn trefnu digwyddiadau chwaraeon, yn enwedig rhai ag arllwy militaraidd iddynt .
Yn ardal Wrecsam cychwynnodd y clybiau cynta yng Nghymru. Y Druids of Rhuabon oedd y cynta a wyddom amdano, gan gychwyn yn 1869 fel Plasmadoc. Ffurfiodd clwb Wrecsam ddim tan Medi 28ain 1872. Yn y gorllewin ffurfiwyd Caernarfon Athletic yn Medi 1876, tra yn Rhagfyr or un flwyddyn sefydlwyd clwb ym Mangor.
Yn 1872 roedd pl-droed Cymru yn ei fabandod ac roedd bodolaeth clwb ym Mhorthmadog ar yr adeg honno yn ei gwneud yn un or hynaf yn y wlad. Dim ond 9 mlynedd ynghynt ffurfiwyd FA Lloegr ac roedd 4 mlynedd arall tan i CBD Cymru ddod i fodolaeth. Ymddengys fod y gemau cynnar yn rhai o fewn y clwb ond i unrhyw glwb oroesi roedd yn rhaid fod yna glybiau eraill yn bod er mwyn chwarae gemau yn eu herbyn
Cadarnhawyd drwy ymchwil diweddar na ddiflanodd clwb cynnar Porthmadog, gan oroesir 1870au ac yn wir mynd o nerth i nerth. Daeth arwydd cynnar or datblygiad hwn, rhyw 4 mis yn ddiweddarach, ar Chwefror 13eg 1873 pan chwaraeodd y clwb ei gm gystadleuol gynta adre i dm o Gaernarfon. Mae adroddiad y North Wales Chronicle yn tanlinellu newydddeb yr achlysur ac yn cofnodi mair gm bel-droed oedd one of the first, if not the first in North Wales. Canlyniad y gm oedd buddugoliaeth i glwb Porthmadog a meddair Chronicle play on both sides was extremely good, and created much excitement amongst the spectators, to the majority of whom, the game was a great novelty. Maer adroddiad hefyd yn cofnodi enwau chwaraewyr Porthmadog:

Messrs J. Williams (Captain), R. Casson, J. Crosbie, C. Edmunds, E. Edwards, T.B. Humphreys, H.L. Price, C.W. Roberts, G.P. Spooner, Evan Williams and R.T. Williams.

Porthmadog enillodd o un gl i ddim ac, yn ddigon priodol, y sgoriwr oedd H L Price, y dyn a oedd yn gyfrifol am alwr cyfarfod gwreiddiol yn ystod yr Hydref blaenorol.

150 NOT OUT Football in Porthmadog 1872 -2022


Club historian GERALLT OWEN below traces the origins of football in Porthmadog and, in October 2022, 150 years of football in the town is a reason for pride and celebration.

Remarkably it is exactly 150 years since a football club was established in Porthmadog. The exact circumstances surrounding the formation of Porthmadog Football Club have long been something of a mystery. For many years the club promoted the notion that it was formed in 1884, the year even featured on the club badge as testimony to this long-held belief in the date of the clubs birth. Indeed there was much soul searching and concern among officials and supporters in 1984 when the club was forced to withdraw from football for a season due to a lack of players and resources, on the perceived centenary of the club. However, recent research has debunked this theory and indicates that the club was formed considerably earlier than 1884.
The first known reference to a football club in Porthmadog appears in the North Wales Chronicle newspaper on OCTOBER 26th, 1872. A brief article relates the following:
On Monday evening the 21st inst a meeting convened by H.L. Price was held at the Head Quarters, Portmadoc when it was decided to form a ball club here. The Club is to be managed by a committee of seven members and on Monday the following gentlemen were elected to form the committee, Messrs Randell Casson, C. Roberts, R.W. Pugh, T.B. Humphreys, R. Isaac, J.H. Thomas and H.L. Price with J. Williams as Secretary. The subscription is to be two shilling and sixpence. Tuesdays and Saturdays have been set apart as side days when the places of business here all close at 7pm daily and many of the young men will, no doubt, be glad to join the club.
A week later the North Wales Chronicle helpfully clarified matters for their readers thus:
In announcing in our last issue, the formation of the new club we omitted the word Foot. We are glad to understand that it is likely to be well patronised.
The Caernarfon and Denbigh Herald from the same week confirms the birth of the club and suggests that members of the towns cricket and athletics clubs were involved in its creation. The Herald also mentions two different individuals on the committee. The headquarters mentioned in the report seems to have be the headquarters of the local 4th Caernarvon Rifle Volunteers, often referred to as the Porthmadog volunteers. They were a prominent organisation in the town, particularly in organising sporting events with a military bent
Football in Wales was still in its infancy in 1872 and the existence of a club in Porthmadog at that time would make it among the oldest in the country. It was only nine years since the English Football Association had been established and it would be a further four years before the Football Association of Wales was born. It appears that many of the early games were inter club games, but for any club to survive and thrive it must have other clubs to play against.
The oldest clubs in Wales began in and around the Wrexham area. The oldest known club in Wales, the Druids of Ruabon began life as Plasmadoc in 1869 and Wrexham was only formed on September 28th 1872. Further west, Caernarfon Athletic was formed in September 1876 while a Bangor club was established in December of the same year.
Recent research has however confirmed that this early Porthmadog club did not fade away and that during the 1870s it survived and it is suggested that it thrived. As an early sign of this development, some four months later on February 13th 1873 the club played its first ever competitive game, at home against a team from Caernarvon. The North Wales Chronicle's report on the game underlines the novelty of the occasion by stating that the football match was one of the first, if not the first in North Wales. The result was a win for the Porthmadog club and the Chronicle says that play on both sides was extremely good, and created much excitement amongst the spectators, to the majority of whom, the game was a great novelty. The report also names the team which represented Porthmadog that day.

Messrs J. Williams (Captain), R. Casson, J. Crosbie, C. Edmunds, E. Edwards, T.B. Humphreys, H.L. Price, C.W. Roberts, G.P. Spooner, Evan Williams and R.T. Williams.

The Porthmadog club won the game by one goal to nil, with the only goal fittingly scored by H.L. Price, the man who had instigated the original meeting, the previous October.

DWBL MIS MEDI i PORT / SEPTEMBER DOUBLE for PORT


Daeth newyddion gwych i Port wrth baratoi am ymweliad Treffynnon, gem arall allweddol yn y Cymru North.
Enwyd Craig Papirnyk yn Rheolwr y Mis yn y Cymru North am fis Medi gyda Rhys Alun yn ei gwneud yn llwyddiant dwbl wrth gael ei enwi yn Chwaraewr y Mis.
Maer enwebiad yn glod ir gwaith caled sydd wedi mynd ymlaen ar Y Traeth cyn ac ar l y dyrchafiad yn l i ail haen pl-droed Cymru. Arweiniodd Paps y clwb yn l ar yr ymgais gynta ac mae wedi gwynebur sialens i ail sefydlur clwb ar y lefel uwch. Roedd y perfformiadau yn ystod y mis, pan sicrhaodd y clwb 7 pwynt yn eu tair gm, yn mynd dipyn or daith i wireddu hyn.
A dyna ichi dymor mae Rhys Alun yn ei gael! Bellach mae ei lwyddiant yn cael sylw ar lwyfan ehangach. Diweddglo iw berfformaidau cyson yn ystod y mis oedd iddo rhwydor gl yn Llandudno a sicrhaodd fudddugoliaeth fwyaf nodweddiadol Port yn y tymor hyd yma. Ers hynny aeth Rhys ymlaen i fwy o lwyddiant yng Nghwpan Rhanbarthol UEFA.
Llongyfarchiadau ir ddau!!

Great news for Port as they prepare for the visit of Holywell Town in another key Cymru North fixture.
Craig Papirnyk has been named the Cymru Norths Manager of the Month for September and Rhys Alun has made it a double success by scooping the Player of the Month award.
This is indeed a tribute to the hard work that has been going on at the Traeth before and after promotion back to the 2nd Tier of Welsh football. Paps led the return at the very first attempt and has faced up to the challenge of re-establishing the club at the higher level. Performances during September, when the club picked up 7 points from 3 games, have gone some way to achieving this goal. What a season it has been for Rhys Alun and now his achievements have received wider recognition. His consistent performances culminated, on the last day of September, by netting away at Llandudno, a goal which secured Port their most notable victory so far this season. Since then Rhys has gone on to even more success at the UEFA Regions Cup.It is difficult to keep him out of the picture!!
Congrats both!!

Port will be back action for the first time in the month of October when they travel to Alyn Park on Tuesday night, to take on Mold in the Welsh Blood Services League Cup 2nd Round tie.
The two clubs have already met once this season when Port went out of the JD Welsh Cup by 4-3 at the Traeth. On that occasion Mold overturned a 2-0 and 3-1 deficit to secure the victory with Rhys Nash completing a hat trick by scoring an 80th minute winner.
Tuesdays game will again be a contrast between Ports pace up front and Molds height, strength and undoubted threat at set pieces. Three Port players who have been active during the past week are Callum Parry, Meilir Williams and Rhys Alun representing the Cymru North in Northern Ireland. Will they be available after involvement in 3 fixtures? If not, this may be another opportunity for Cian Pritchard and Cai Henshaw, both on the scoresheet against Llanrug recently.
Mold were in league action on Saturday and went down 2-0 to Prestatyn.
Cmon Port!!
