Y Golwr / The Goalie.

Pwy oedd y gol geidwad tu l ir mwgwd ac yn gwisgo ct hir at ei traed ar Y Clwb nos Sadwrn diwethaf yn y gystadleuaeth hanner-amser o giciau or smotyn ? Wel neb llai na Dilwyn Lloyd Parry, cefnogwr mwyaf brwd ac adnabyddus Port -a do wir fe wnaeth sioe arbennig ohoni gan gadw cyfanswm y ciciau or smotyn gan Morgan Jones (Sgorio) i lawr i ddim ond pedwar. A dweud y gwir oni bai am yr hen gt wirion yna maen siŵr y byddai Morgan wedi bod yn lwcus i sgorio un! Piti na gafodd Dilwyn fenthyg crys ei gyfaill ai arwr Ged byddai yr un wedi mynd heibio iddo wedyn!

Who was the goalkeeper behind that mask and dressed in a coat which reached his ankles on Y Clwb last Saturday evening? Well none other than Dilwyn Lloyd Parry, Ports most well known and enthusiastic supporter and yes indeed, he gave an excellent account of himself keeping Morgan Jones (Sgorio) down to 4 successful penalties in the half-time penalty shoot-out. Indeed if it wasnt for that crazy coat Morgan would have been very fortunate to score one past Dilwyn. What a pity he did not borrow the shirt of his friend and hero Ged -nothing would have got past him then!

Y diweddaraf ar y cae / Latest news on the ground.

Erbyn hyn, maer dŵr wedi mynd i lawr yn sylweddol a gyda rhagolygon y tywydd yn edrych yn llawer mwy addawol, dylair gm fawr yn erbyn Bangor ddydd Sadwrn fynd yn ei blaen. Dywedodd ysgrifennydd y clwb Gerallt Owen "Gyda lwc dylai pethau fod yn iawn ar gyfer ddydd Sadwrn cyn belled na chawn ni ddiwrnod tebyg i ddydd Gwener diwethaf eto!" Galli cyflwr y cae ymarfer, sy'n cael ei ddefnyddio fel maes parcio ychwanegol, fod yn fwy o broblem gan fod disgwyl i dorf fawr deithio i lawr o Fangor.

The water has now gone down considerably and with the weather forecast for the next few days sounding promising, the important fixture against Bangor should go ahead. Club Secretary Gerallt Owen said "With luck all should be well for Saturday just as long as we dont get another day like last Friday again!" The condition of the training pitch, used as an overflow car park, could be more of a problem as a large crowd is expected to travel from Bangor.

Llanast y dŵr / Water damage.

Bu'n rhaid gohirio gem Port yn erbyn Lido Afan ar y Traeth ddoe oherwydd llifogydd. Dengys y lluniau yma gymaint o ddŵr oedd yn gorchuddio'r cae. Achoswyd difrod i'r ystafelloedd newid gan y llifogydd.

Floods caused the cancellation of Porthmadog's game against Afan Lido at y Traeth yesterday. These photos show the amount of water on the pitch. Damage was also caused to the changing rooms.

Cawlach y Cerdyn / Card mix-up.

Cafodd y cerdyn coch a roddwyd ar gam i Gareth Parry yn ystod y gm yn Trallwng ar 16 Rhagfyr ei drosglwyddo i Owain Roberts wedi ir dyfarnwr, ar ddau dim, gytuno bod camgymeriad wedii wneud. Roedd y dyfarnwr wedi rhoi cerdyn coch i Gareth Parry am dacl gan Owain Roberts ar Rickey Evans. Arweiniodd y dacl hon at ymateb annifyr iawn gan Evans, a dderbyniodd gerdyn coch haeddiannol iawn.
Er na roddwyd cerdyn coch i Roberts ar y noson, mae rheolaur Gymdeithas Bl-droed yn datgan bod posib trosglwyddo gwaharddiad os ywr cerdyn wedi cael ei roi ir chwaraewr anghywir. Roedd Owain Roberts wedi ei wahardd yn y gm yn erbyn Aberystwyth, ac maen bosib y bydd allan am ddwy gm arall.

The red card wrongly given to Gareth Parry during the game against Welshpool on December 16 has been transferred to Owain Roberts after the ref, and both teams, agreed a mistake had been made. The ref had shown Gareth Parry a red card following a tackle by Owain Roberts on Rickey Evans. This tackle lead to a rather ugly response by Evans, who received a deserved sending off.
Although Roberts was not shown the red card on the night, the Football Associations rules state that it is possible for a suspension to be handed to a player retrospectively in a case of mistaken identity. Owain Roberts was suspended for the game against Aberystwyth, and its possible he will remain sidelined for a further two matches.

Anfaiadau: Y Diweddaraf / Injuries: The Latest.

Da oedd gweld Aled Rowlands, sydd wedi bod allan oherwydd anaf, yn chwarae i ail dim Port ddydd Sadwrn diwethaf. Fe sgoriodd ddwy gol wrth i'r ail dim enill o 8:2 yn erbyn ail dim Caergybi. Mae gobaith y bydd yn ddigon ffit i ddychwelyd i'r tim cyntaf dros y Nadolig a'r flwyddyn newydd. Chwaraewr arall sydd wedi bod allan ers sbel yw Carl Owen sydd wedi torri asgwrn yn ei droed. Mae Viv ac Osian yn gobeithio bydd Carl yn dychwelyd i'r tim dros y flwyddyn newydd.

It was good to see Aled Rowlands, who has been sidelined by injury, playing for Port's reserves last Saturday. He scored two goals as the reserves stormed to an 8:2 victory against Holyhead reserves. It is hoped that he will by fit enough to return to the first team over Christmas and the new year. Car Owen is another player who has been out for a while after breaking a bone in his foot. Viv and Osian are hopeful that Carl will return to the team over the new year.

Rhodri Jones: Y Diweddaraf / Rhodri Jones: The Latest.

Da ydy deall fod Rhodri Jones yn gwellan dda yn dilyn yr anaf a gafodd ar y Traeth. Da hefyd nodi y diolchiadau a ddaeth o gyfeiriad clwb Caerfyrddin i glwb Port am eu cymorth. Dywed cynrychiolydd yn y Carmarthen Journal a dyfynnwn hefyd o sylwadau Vince James ar Restr Ohebu Gynghrair Cymru.

It is great to know that Rhodri Jones is making excellent progress following the nasty injury which he sustained at the Traeth. It is also good to note the thanks extended by the Carmarthen club to Port in respect of their assistance on the day. A spokesman is quoted in the Carmarthen Journal and we also quote from Vince James comments on the Welsh Premier Mailing List.

"The club is very thankful to officers and fans of CPD Porthmadog for their assistance."

"Club physios Gary Morris and Jordanna McCarley did a fantastic, professional job looking after Rhodri before the paramedics took over.

"As a club we are grateful to the officials and fans of Porthmadog who helped us out during the afternoon ferrying Jordanna and club coordinator Malcolm Williams to hospital and back as well as other considerations. Many thanks."

Apl y Llif Oleuadau y diweddaraf / Floodlight Appeal - Update

Ar l cychwyniad braidd yn ara deg, maer apl yn dechrau codi stm gyda nifer o gyfraniadau wedi dod i law. Os ydych yn dymuno cyfrannu, ond heb wneud eto, cysylltwch ag unrhyw un o swyddogion y clwb. Bydd yn rhaid ir cyfarwyddwyr ddod i benderfyiad cyn hir iawn os ydynt yn gweld y ffordd yn glir i fynd ymlaen r cynllun. Mae ffynhonnell arall o arian yn gwneud yn dda, sef y Raffl sydd ynglŷn r apl. Os oes gennych docynnau a heb eu dychwelyd, a wnewch hyn mor fuan phosib.

Following a somewhat slow start, the appeal is gaining momentum with a number of contributions having now come to hand. If you wish to contribute, and have not yet done so, please contact a club official as soon as possible. Shortly, the directors will need to decide whether they are in a position to proceed with the project. Another avenue is doing well namely the Raffle associated with the appeal. If you have tickets to return, would you please do so as soon as possible.

Cwpan y Gyngrhair diweddaraf / League Cup Update

Daeth y dyddiadau ar gyfer y rownd cyn-derfynol yn erbyn Caerfyrddin i law. Bydd y cymal cyntaf ar faes Waun-Dew ar nos Fawrth, Chwefror 15fed am 7.30pm gydar ail gymal ar y Traeth ar nos Fawrth, Mawrth 1af am 7.30pm.
Bydd y clwb yn ceiso ad-drefnur dyddiadau gan fod gemau canol wythnos, syn golygu teithiau mor bell, yn anymarferol. Golygai hyn y byddai chwaraewyr yn colli hanner diwrnod o waith ac yn cyrraedd yn l adreyn yr oriau mn. Tybed na fyddai wedi bod yn gallach i gael rowndiau cyn-derfynol gogledd a de?

The dates have come to hand for the semi-final against Carmarthen Town. The first-leg will be played at Richmond Park on Tuesday, February 15th with a 7.30pm kick-off while the return leg is at the Traeth on Tuesday, March 1st at 7.30pm.
However, the club will be trying to re-arrange these games, as midweek games, between teams where a lengthy journey is involved, are impractical. It would mean players missing half a days work and not getting home until the early hours. Would it not have been better to have a northern and a southern semi-final?

Cwpan Ieuenctid Cymru / Welsh Youth Cup.

Llongyfarchiadau ir tm ieuenctid a sicrhaodd fuddugoliaeth dda yng Nghwpan Ieuenctid Cymru yn y Trallwng. Y sgor oedd 3-2 ar l amser ychwanegol. Sgoriodd Iwan Thomas ddwy waith yn ystod y nawdeg munud gyda John Peris Jones yn sicrhaur fuddugoliaeth gyda peniad yn ystod amser ychwanegol.

Congratulations to the youth team who made progress in the Welsh Youth Cup with a determined win against Welshpool by three goals to two after extra-time. Iwan Thomas scored twice for Port in normal time. John Peris Jones scored the winner with an extra-time header.

Aelod Newydd or Bwrdd / New Board Member.

Yn ei cyfarfod diwethaf cafodd Ian Foulkes ei gyfethol i Fwrdd Rheoli Clwb Pl-droed Porthmadog. Mae yn gefnogwr brwd or clwb ac wedi gwethion gydwybodol, a hynny dros nifer fawr o flynyddoedd, i godi arian ir clwb. Bu hefyd yn weithgar iawn yn ddiweddar fel aelod or tm syn sicrhau fod y cae yn y Traeth gydar gorau yng Nghyngrhair Cymru. Derbyniodd Ian Foulkes wahoddiad y cyfarwyddwyr ac yn sicr fydd yn ychwanegiad gwerthfawr ir bwrdd.

At a recent board meeting Ian Foulkes was co-opted on to the Board of Directors of Porthmadog FC. He has been a staunch supporter of the club and has worked conscientiously over many years fund-raising for the club. He has also recently been a member of the team who ensure that the Traeth has one of the best playing surfaces in the league. Ian Foulkes has accepted the invitation of the directors and there is no doubt he will be a valuable addition to the board.

Cwpan Loosemore Y Gynghrair Rownd Cyn Derfynnol / Loosemores League Cup Semi-Final Draw.

Nodwyd, gan Gerallt Owen, yn y Rhaglen fod Llawlyfr y Gyngrhair yn dweud mai yn agored ddylair enwau ddod allan or het ar gyfer y rownd cyn-derfynnol. Ychwanegodd y byddain rhaid inni aros i weld. Wel dyma beth ddigwyddodd dim gemau cyn-derfynnol gogledd a de fel yr oedd cefnogwyr yn disgwyl ond:
Porthmadog v Caerfyrddin
Port Talbot v Y Rhyl
Ar ei ben Gerallt! Gemau iw chwarae, maen siwr, dros ddau gymal ar ddyddiadau iw trefnu.


As Gerallt Owen noted,in the Match Programme, the Welsh Premier Handbook states that the semi-final draw should be open. He adds that we shall have to wait and see what happens. Well this is what happened -no northern and southern semis as most fans had expected instead:
Porthmadog v Carmarthen
Port Talbot v Rhyl
Well spotted Gerallt! Matches to be played, presumably, over two legs on dates to be arranged.

Newid i'r Tim Rheoli / Change to Management Team.

Cyhoeddodd Viv yn y rhaglen bnawn Sadwrn newid i dim rheoli Port. Ond peidiwch a phoeni dydi Viv ddim yn bwriadu ein gadael. Mae Osian Roberts, sydd wedi bod yn hyfforddwr ers dechrau cyfnod Viv wrth y llyw yn 2000, wedi cael ei ddyrchafu i fod yn gyd-reolwr. Y rheswm am y newid hwn yn l Viv yw pwysau gwaith: "Oherwydd ymrwymiadau gwaith, dwi ddim yn teimlo fy mod yn gallu caniatu digon o amser i weithio gydar tim ac rwyn gobeithio bydd y drefn newydd yn gwella pethau." Mewn gwirionedd, ni fydd hyn yn arwain at newid mawr yn y ffordd mae'r clwb yn cael ei reoli.

Viv Williams announced in Saturday afternoons programme a change to Ports management team. But dont worry, Viv isnt leaving us. Osian Roberts, who has been coach since the start of Vivs reign as manager in 2000, has been promoted to the post of joint-manager. The reason for this change according to Viv is work commitments: "Due to work commitments I feel that I am not able to devote enough time to the team and hopefully the new set-up will address this". In reality this wont mean a huge change in the way the club is run.

Ymosodiad y Gwyddau / Fowl Play.

Mae Port yn brwydro i adfer y cae ar y Traeth wedi i haid o wyddau Canada ei ddifetha. Oherwydd y difrod, bun rhaid gohurio gem yr ail dim yn erbyn eilyddion Llangefni ddydd Sadwrn. Yr ardal o flaen un or goliau gafodd ei effeithio waethaf wrth ir adar chwilio am bryfaid genwair. Mae swyddogion yn gobeithio byddant yn gallu adfer y cae mewn pryd ar gyfer gem dydd Sadwrn yn erbyn Total Network Solutions sydd ar frig y tabl ac hefyd yn ddi-guro y tymor hwn.
"Rydym yn gobeithio bydd y cae yn barod erbyn dydd Sadwrn, " meddai ysgrifenyddd cyffredinol Port Gerallt Owen. "Bydd y tirmon yn ceisio ail-osod y tywyrch.
"Rydym wedi gosod mesh ar y rhan or cae sydd wedi ei effeithio er mwyn ceisio cadwr adar i ffwrdd. Yn anffodus nid ywn bosib gorchuddior cae i gyd, ond rydym yn gobeithio y byddant wedi mynd o fewn pythefnos," ychwanegodd.(o'r Daily Post).

Port are battling to repair the Traeth pitch after a gaggle of Canada geese ravaged the pitch. The damage meant that Saturday's reserve team game against Llangefni had to be postponed. Part of one goalmouth was worst affected as the birds hunted for worms. Officials hope they will be able to repair the pitch in time for Saturday's clash against fellow unbeaten side and league leaders Total Network Solutions.
"Hopefully we will have the pitch ready for Saturday," said Port general secretary Gerallt Owen. "The groundsman will try to replace the divots.
"We have a mesh to put down over the affected area to try and keep the birds off. Unfortunately we cannot cover the whole pitch, but hopefully they will have gone in two weeks," he added.(from the Daily Post)

Ryan Davies: Chwaraewr y Mis. / Ryan Davies: Player of the month.

Llongyfarchiadau i amddiffynwr canol Port, Ryan Davies, ar gael ei ddewis yn chwaraewr y mis Uwch Gynghrair Vauxhall MasterFit ar gyfer mis Medi gan raglen Ar y Marc ar Radio Cymru. Mae Ryan wedi bod yn rhan allweddol o amddiffyn cadarn Port sef un or tynaf yn y gynghrair y tymor hwn. Dim ond tair gl a sgoriwyd yn erbyn Port trwy gydol y mis. Ryan hefyd sgoriodd y gl gyntaf i Port yn eu buddigoliaeth yn erbyn Bangor ar ddechraur mis.

Congratualtions to Port central defender, Ryan Davies, on being named the Vauxhall MasterFit Welsh Premier League player of the month for September by Radio Cymrus Ar y Marc programme. Ryan has been a vital part of Ports solid defence one of the tightest in the league this season. Port's defence only conceded three goals throughout the month. Ryan also scored the first goal in Ports victory against Bangor at the start of the month.

Mark Williams yn gwrthod y cynnig/ Mark Williams rejects offer

Yn ddiweddar rhoddwyd rhybudd saith niwrnod o gais trosglwyddiad gan clwb Aberystwyth am Mark Williams ymosodwr Port. Deallwn erbyn hyn nad oes gan Mark ddiddordeb mewn ymuno gydar clwb o Geredigion a bydd felly yn aros ar y traeth. Penderfyniad doeth iawn!

Aberystwyth Town recently gave a seven day notice of approach for the services of Mark Williams the Port striker. We now understand that Mark has turned down the Ceredigion clubs overtures and will be remaining at the Traeth. A very wise decision!

Sylwadau Deryn Brace/ Deryn Braces Comments

Dyma ddywedodd Deryn Brace wrth y Western Mail yn dilyn y gem yn erbyn Port ddydd Sadwrn.

These are Deryn Braces comments following Saturdays match against Port.

"Before the game I would have considered it two points lost, but now Im happy with one. Porthmadog are the surprise package this season and I think they are capable of finishing in the top eight. They are very well organised and difficult to beat. In fairness to our boys, we had four players missing through injury and the plus point is we didnt pick up any further knocks."

Sylwadau Viv / Viv's Views

Yn l y Western Mail, dyma oedd barn diflewyn ar dafod Viv yn dilyn y gm ddi-sgr yn erbyn Derwyddon Cefn, ddydd Sadwrn. Ymddiheurodd Viv ir cefnogwyr am y perfformiad dilewyrch.

This was Vivs forthright verdict, according to the Western Mail, on Saturdays home clash with Cefn Druids. Viv apologised to supprters for the dismal showing.

"We were very poor and Im not happy at all. We totally messed it up and have got to perform a lot better than that. Im really frustrated and felt our performance was unacceptable although, once again, our back five was very solid."

Apl y Llif-oleuadau / Floodlight Appeal

I gyfarfod a rheolau trwyddedu UEFA, bydd yn rhaid i Port wella safon y llif-oleuadau ar y Traeth. Cyfanswm cost y gwaith fydd 23,000. Swm anferth i glwb bach ond -fe ellir derbyn grant o 70% or gost oddi wrth y Gymdeithas Bldroed. Bydd hyn yn gadael swm oddeutu 6,000, sydd yn dal yn swm fawr iawn. Mae pwysau amser hefyd gan fod rhaid derbyn cynnig grant y Gymdeithas Bldroed erbyn y Nadolig -sydd ddim yn gadael llawer o amser ir clwb ddod o hyd ir arian. Penderfyniad y cyfarwyddwyr ydy sefydlu cronfa er mwyn ceisio codi cymaint phosib or swm o 6,000. Bydd swyddogion y clwb yn croesawu unrhyw gyfraniadau mawr a bach mawr os yn bosib! Byddain dda gan yr ysgrifennydd, Gerallt Owen, glywed am unrhyw syniadau newydd i godi arian er mwyn ceisio sicrhau fod cyfleusterau ar y Traeth yn dal i wella.Golygar gwelliannau godi safon y llif-oleuadau i isafswm o 500 lux.

To meet new UEFA licensing regulations, Port will need to improve the standard of the lights at the Traeth. The total cost of such work will be in the region of 23,000. This is a huge sum for a small club but it is possible to receive 70% of this amount in the form of a grant from the FAW. This leaves a shortfall of some 6,000 which the club will need to raise. This is still a substantial sum bearing in mind that the FAW have placed a time-limit on their grant offer and this will run out just before Christmas. The club directors have therefore decided to launch a Fund in order to raise as much of the 6,000 as possible, as soon as possible. Club officials will be delighted to accept donations large and small the larger the better of course! And also secretary Gerallt Owen will be glad to hear of any bright ideas to raise extra funds. The improvements will involve raising the standard of the lights to a minimum of 500 lux.

Ifor Roberts

Maen wir dweud ei bod hin bosib fod yn gymaint rhan or dodrefn nes bod neb yn eich sylwi tan eich bod bellach ddim yno. A r l dros ugain mlynedd o drin anafiadau chwaraewyr Port, penderfynodd Ifor Roberts adael y sbwng hud yn y bag meddygol ac ymddeol. Mae dyled y clwb i Ifor yn fawr iawn a rhyfedd iawn ydyr olygfa wrth ymyl y cae heb ei weld yn rhan o batrwm pnawn Sadwrn. Mewn seremoni byr ar y Traeth, derbyniodd Ifor Arwydd o Werthfawrogiad gan y clwb am ei holl wasanaeth oddi wrth gadeirydd y clwb, Phil Jones. Yn ogystal, derbyniodd dlws gwydr arbennig o hardd a oedd yn rhodd gan un o weithwyr amlwg y clwb, Owain Geraint Jones. Rwan gall Ifor ganolbwyntio ar fod yn gefnogwr a da gweld, er ei ymddeoliad, ei fod yn methu cadw draw or Traeth. Olynnydd Ifor yw Campbell Harrison.

It is true to say that it is possible to be so much part of the scenery that no one really notices you until you are no longer there. After twenty years of service treating players injuries, Ifor Roberts has decided to put the magic sponge back in the medical bag for the final time and retire. The club owes Ifor a great debt of gratitude for his services and the scene in and around the dug-out on a Saturday afternoon without him is indeed a strange one. In a short ceremony at the Traeth, Ifor received a Token of Appreciation presented to him by club Chairman, Phil Jones. In addition, he received a superb glass trophy donated by one of the clubs loyal band of workers, Owain Geraint Jones. Ifor can now concentrate on his role as a club supporter and it is good to see that, despite retirement, he is unable to keep away from the Traeth. Ifors successor is Campbell Harrison.

Wayne Davies?

Ydy John Deakin yn gwybod rhywbeth nad ywr gweddill ohonom wedi clywed? Dyma ddywedodd yn ei golofn wythnosol am y gyngrhair y maen ysgrifennydd ohoni:
"Wayne Davies, in his first season as Manager at Y Traeth, has yet to taste defeat, and will certainly be looking to maintain this when they travel to Newtown, who were beaten 2-1 in their derby match with Welshpool last Friday evening."
Ai Viv ydyr rheolwr cyntaf i golli ei swydd eleni? Gwarthus fo wedi cwblhau chwech o gmau heb golli run! Beth sydd yn mynd ymlaen gyfarwyddwyr? Maen rhaid cyfaddef fod y gŵr ar ymyl y cae ar barc Latham ddydd Sadwrn yn edrych yn hynod debyg i Viv. Engrhaifft o gymysgu eich Port maen siwr.

Does John Deakin know something that has escaped the rest of us? This is what he wrote the in his weekly colum on the league of which he is secretary.:
"Wayne Davies, in his first season as Manager at Y Traeth, has yet to taste defeat, and will certainly be looking to maintain this when they travel to Newtown, who were beaten 2-1 in their derby match with Welshpool last Friday evening."
Is Viv the first managerial casualty of the season? Disgraceful Id say after all his good work in reaching the sixth game of the season without defeat. What is going on directors? Though on reflection I must say that the bloke on the touchline, at Latham Park, looked the spitting image of Viv. Is it just a case of mixing your Port.?

Here are the comments of Roger Preece the Newtown manager about Saturdays match at Latham Park, as reported in the Western Mail.

"A draw, I feel, was a fair result but we should have done better after taking the lead in the first-half.
"It is disappointing not to pick up three points, but Porthmadog are a much tighter unit this seasonand will give many sides problems.
"There are about five or six clubs who are ahead of the pack. We are in the other dozen"

Gwallgofrwydd y crysau / A shirty saga.

Dair wythnos yn l, mynodd y dyfarnwr Neil Morgan nad oedd yn gallu gweld y gwahaniaeth rhwng crysau coch Lido Afan a crysau gwyn Port oedd a dwy streipen goch denau o dan eu llewis. Arweiniodd hyn at ffars llwyr, lle bun rhaid i Port wisgou crysau tu chwith allan (isod, ar y dde). Gallai sefyllfa debyg fod wedi codi ddydd Sadwrn wrth i Port herior Drenewydd sydd hefyd yn chwarae mewn crysau coch. Yn ffodus roedd y dyfarnwr Phil Southall un o drigolion Port Talbot yn fwy hyderus oi allu i weld y gwahaniaeth rhwng gwyn a coch wrth iddo ganiatau i Port wysgor crysau oedd wedi bod yn gymaint o dramgwydd i Mr. Morgan. Nid Phil Southall yn unig syn gallu gweld pethaun gliriach na Mr. Morgan druan gan i Alberto Undiano Mallenco o Sbaen ganiatau i Loegr wisgo crysau gwyn gyda streipiau coch ar eu llewis yn erbyn Awstria au crysau coch (isod, ar y chwith). Piti nad Mr. Morgan oedd y dyfarnwr yn gm Lloegr byddai wedi bod yn wych gweld Beckham et al yn gwisgou crysau tu chwith allan! (Yn groes ir grd yn Lido Afan nid oedd Port wedi teithio 150 milltir heb eu hail grysau.)



Three weeks ago, referee Neil Morgan insisted that he couldnt tell the difference between Afan Lidos red shirts and Ports white shirts that had two narrow red stripes below the sleeves. This lead to a complete farce, as Port had to play the match with their shirts inside out (above, right). A similar situation could have arisen this Saturday as Port faced Newtown who also play in red shirts. Fortunately, the referee Phil Southall from Port Talbot no less was more confident of his ability to tell the difference between white and red as he allowed Port to wear the shirts that had been such a problem for Mr. Morgan. Phil Southall wasnt the only one that could see things clearer than poor Mr. Morgan as Alberto Undiano Mallenco of Spain allowed England to play in white shirts with red stripes on the sleeves against red-shirted Austria (above, left). Its a pity that Mr. Morgan wasnt the referee for the England game it would have been great to see Beckham and co wearing their shirts inside out! (Contrary to popular belief at the Lido Port didnt travel 150 miles without their changed strip.)

Ymateb Viv / Viv's Reaction.

Dyma farn Viv (yn l y Western Mail) am y gem siomedig ar y Traeth ddydd Sadwrn:

These are Vivs comments, as reported in the Western Mail, concerning Saturdays disappointing game at the Traeth:

"Connahs Quay are a very well-organised side who know how to get results and they made life extremely difficult for us.
"But it was a poor match, probably the worst since Ive been in charge here. The one positive outcome from the match was that we again showed we are much tighter this season.
"Defensively we have been playing well, with only two goals conceded, but we should have done better with the few opportunities we had."
