Goliau Dwbl / At the Double


Gl! / Goal!Nododd Gerallt Owen yn ei sylwadau golygyddol at y rhaglen ar gyfer y gm yn erbyn Cwmbrn mai dwy gl Carl Owen, yn y gm yn erbyn Caernarfon, oedd y tro cyntaf i chwaraewr o Port sgorio dwy gl mewn gm am bron i flwyddyn. Hwn oedd y tro cyntaf ers i Ritchie Owen sgorio dwy yn erbyn Caerfyrddin ar Ragfyr 4ydd 2004. A beth sydd wedi digwydd ers hynny tybed? Maen union fel aros am y bws diarhebol hwnnw am oes a wedyn mae tri yn dod efoi gilydd!Yn erbyn Cwmbrn, sgoriodd Gareth Parry ddwy gl ar gm nesaf yn erbyn Airbus roedd Carl Owen wrthi eto yn sgorio dwy! Ymchwil pellach i Gerallt felly. Pryd sgoriodd chwaraewr unigol o Port ddwy gl mewn tair gm yn olynol?

Gerallt Owen noted in his editorial comments in the match programme for the Cwmbran game that Carl Owens two goals against Caernarfon were the first time for an individual player to score two goals in a game for almost a year. This was the first time since Ritchie Owen scored twice against Carmarthen on December 4th 2004. And what happens next I wonder? Its just like waiting for that proverbial bus for an age and then three turn up together! Against Cwmbran in the next game Gareth Parry scored two and then against Airbus Carl Owen was at it again scoring twice! Some further research for Gerallt therefore. When did an individual player last score two goals in a game in three successive matches?

Cynghrair dan-21: Port 0, Y Drenewydd 1 / Under 21 League: Port 0, Newtown 1


Drenewydd / NewtownNos Fawrth Rhagfyr 13
Cyn i amddiffyn Port gael eu traed o danynt, cafodd canlyniad y gm hon ei phenderfynu gyda dim ond 30 eiliad wedi mynd, a hyn pan ddawnsiodd Andrew Webb, ymosodwr Y Drenewydd, rhwng y ddau amddiffynnwr canol i sgorio o bymtheg llathen. Gwnaeth Y Drenewydd, tm trefnus a pheryglus, hefyd greu nifer o gyfleoedd eraill yn ystod gweddill y gm ond rhwystrwyd hwy gan amddiffyn da ac un neu ddau o arbedion da gan y golwr Dylan Edwards. Yn ystod cyfnod o 25 munud naill ochr ir hanner, daeth Port fwyfwy ir gm gan greu nifer fawr o gyfleoedd. Cafodd Ywain Gwynedd y ddau gyfle gorau tra methwyd cyfleoedd hefyd gan Mark Cook a Tom Roberts. Roedd yn gm i ddifyrrur cefnogwyr a gallair canlyniad fod wedi mynd o blaid y naill dm neur llall. Unwaith eto roedd yn hysbyseb dda ir gynghrair newydd dan 21. Chwaraewr y gm i Port oedd Geraint Mitchell a oedd, unwaith eto, yn arbennig yn yr amddiffyn.

Tuesday December 13th
The result of this match was settled after only 30 seconds when the Porthmadog defence were caught cold by Newtown striker Andrew Webb who danced in between the two Porthmadog centre halves to score from 15 yards. Newtown who were well organised and dangerous throughout created a number of chances during the rest of the game, but there was some good defending and one or two good saves from Dylan Edwards. However Porthmadog did get into the match and during a 25 minute period either side of half time. Porthmadog created a host of chances with the best two falling to Ywain Gwynedd while others were missed by Mark Cook and Tom Hughes. This was an entertaining game, which could have gone either way but again it was a good advertisement for the newly formed under 21 league. Porthmadog Man of the Match: Geraint Mitchell (Outstanding in defence yet again).

Cynghrair dan-21: Port 6, Cei Connah 3 / Under 21 League: Port 6, Connah's Quay 3.


Cei Connah / Connah's QuaySicrhaodd Port eu buddugoliaeth gyntaf yn y gynghrair newydd mewn gm fywiog gyda digon o goliau. Aeth Port ar y blaen ar l dau funud pan fanteisiodd Iestyn Woolaway ar y bl rhydd ar l i Mark Cook saethu. Daeth yr ymwelwyr yn gyfartal ar l chwarter awr diolch i Chris Guy ond gwnaeth y fantais barhau ond am gwta funud cyn i Mark Cook roi Port yn l ar y blaen. Daeth yna gyfnod arall o ddwy gl mewn munud cyn yr hanner pan sgoriodd James Gambino i Gei Conna ond gwnaeth Declan Williams ymateb yn syth i roi mantais o 3-2 i Port ar yr egwyl.
Yr ymwelwyr oedd yn rheoli pethau ar ddechraur ail hanner a daethant yn gyfartal ar l 61 munud wrth i David Bamford droin dda yn y bocs a churo Dylan Edwards. Pum munud yn ddiweddarach sgoriodd Gareth Caughter gyda pheniad o gic gornel. Arhosodd y sgr yn 4-3 tan y munudau olaf pan sgoriodd y ddau flaenwr peryglus Iestyn Woolaway a Mark Cook ail gl yr un. Gm ddifyr gydar ddau dm yn chwilio pob cyfle i sgorio. Roedd yna nifer o berfformiadau da i Port a neb gwell na Gavin Davies yng nghanol y cae.

Port secured their first win in the new league in an entertaining and free scoring game. Port went ahead after only two minutes when Iestyn Woolaway reacted quickly in the box after Mark Cooks shot had been blocked. The visitors drew level after 15 minutes thanks to a Chris Guy goal following a corner. The scores remained level for less than a minute when Mark Cook restored the home sides advantage. There was a second bout of tit for tat goal scoring just before half time when James Gambinos goal for the Nomads was cancelled out by Declan Williams close range goal.
The Nomads controlled the early stages of the second half and drew level after 61 minutes when Dave Bamford turned well in the box to score. Five minutes later and Port were ahead again thanks to a Gareth Caughter header following a corner. The score remained at 4-3 until the last ten minutes when Iestyn Woolaway and Mark Cook, who had formed a dangerous partnership at the front for Port, each added their second goal. This was an enjoyable match with both sides intent on attack. There were several good Port performances and one who caught the eye was Gavin Davies in midfield.

Cofis yn cael eu Gwrthod / Cofis Rejected


Les DaviesCafodd cais Caernarfon i arwyddo Les Davies ei wrthod gan y chwaraewr sydd wedi datgan ei fod yn mwynhau chwarae i Port ac yn dymuno aros ar y Traeth. Bydd ei benderfyniad i aros, yn cael ei groesawu gan y cefnogwyr am ei fod eisoes wedi dod yn ffefryn ar y Traeth ac wedi gwneud cyfraniad allweddol ir ddwy fuddugoliaeth ddiweddar yn erbyn Caernarfon a Chwmbrn. Maer canlyniadau yma wedi codi Port ir 10fed safle yn y tabl.

Les Davies, who has been the subject of overtures by Caernarfon Town to team up with them, has turned down the offer declaring himself more than happy to remain with Port as he enjoys playing for the Traeth club. His decision to remain with Port will be greeted with delight by supporters as Les is already a firm favourite at the Traeth and has been in outstanding form especially in the victory against Caernarfon and in Saturdays win against Cwmbran Town. These results have lifted them into 10th position in the table.

Port U21.....0 Trallwng/Welshpool U21.....1


(Gohiriwyd ar l 35 munud)
Trallwng / WelshpoolTarodd melltith y Gynghrair dan 21 eto nos Fawrth wrth i ail gm dan 21 Port yn olynol gael ei gohirio. Ar noson oer iawn ar y Traeth creodd Port dau gyfle cynnar da . Ar l 6 munud rhyddhawyd Mark Cook gan bl dda o ganol cae, curodd amddiffynnwr ond aeth ei ergyd heibio ir postyn. Saith munud yn ddiweddarach Cook a greodd y tro yma gan rhyddhau Jason Harvey ond aeth ei ergyd or chwith ar draws wyneb y gl. Ar l 16 munud, ac yn erbyn rhediad y chwarae, cafodd y Trallwng anrheg o gl. Rhuthrodd golwr Port, Dylan Edwards allan oi gl ond methodd ei gic yn llwyr gan roi cyfle hawdd i William Thomas sgorio o 8 llathen. Daeth y digwyddiad tyngedfennol ar l 35 munud gyda tacl fyrbwyll amddiffynnwr Port, Iwan Williams, yn torri coes Sam Griffiths, chwaraewr canol cae Y Trallwng. Galwyd am ambiwlans a cafodd y chwaraewr ei drin ar y cae am 25 munud cyn ei symud. Oherwydd hyn penderfynodd y dyfarnwr ohirior gm. Pan ffoniodd swyddogion Port yr ysbyty heddiw (dydd Mercher) deellir fod Sam Griffiths wedi torri dau asgwrn yn ei goes. Dymuna chwaraewyr, swyddogion a chefnogwyr Port yn dda ir chwaraewr ifanc hwn gan obeithio y bydd yn cael gwellhad llwyr a buan.

(Abandoned after 35 mins)
The curse of the Welsh Premier U21 League struck again on Tuesday night as Ports second consecutive under 21 match was abandoned. On a bitterly cold night at Y Traeth Porthmadog created two good early chances. On 6 minutes Mark Cook was released with a fine ball from midfield, he held off the defender but put his shot from 15 yards wide of the left hand post. Seven minutes later and Cook turned creator as his flick header released Jason Harvey but his shot from left of the goal flew across the face of goal. On 16 minutes against the run of play Welshpool were gifted a goal. Port goalkeeper Dylan Edwards raced from goal to clear a shot but completely missed the ball giving attacker William Thomas the simplest of tasks to score from 8 yards. The defining moment of the match occurred on 35 minutes when a rash challenge by Porthmadog defender Iwan Williams broke the leg of Welshpool midfielder Sam Griffiths. An ambulance was called and after a 25 minute delay to remove the injured Griffiths the match official decided to abandon the game. Porthmadog officials phoned Bangor hospital on Wednesday and it appears that Griffiths has broken two bones in his leg. Players, officials and supporters at Porthmadog wish this young player a speedy and complete recovery.

Gerallt Owen.

Dim Golau / Light Failure.


ParkhallBu achos arall or llifoleuadaun methu ac yn effeithio ar un o dimau Port. Daeth atgofion or gm ar y Traeth yn erbyn Caerfyrddin ir meddwl wrth ir golau fynd allan ar y tm Dan 21 a oedd yn chwarae tm Dan 21 TNS ar gae Parkhall yng Nghroesoswallt neithiwr. Gydar sgr yn dal yn 0-0, bun rhaid gohirior gm ar l chwarae am hanner awr yn unig. Roedd hyn er hynny yn ddigon o amser i Geraint Mitchell ddangos ei ddawn a chafodd ganmoliaeth am ei berfformiad gan Mike Smith (Citizens Choice) a oedd yn bresennol yn y gm. Nid oes unrhyw newyddion ar hyn o bryd ynglyn threfniadau i ail chwaraer gm.

A case of floodlight failure came back to haunt a Port team once again last night. With the floodlight failure at the Traeth for the visit of Carmarthen still fresh in the memory, there was a repeat performance but this time at the Parkhall Ground in Oswestry where Port Under 21s were playing their TNS counterparts. Half an hour of the game had been played when the lights went out with the score remaining on 0-0. There was enough time however for Geraint Mitchell to create an impression earning the praise of Mike Smith (Citizens Choice) who was at the match. There is no news as yet as to arrangements for re-playing the game.

Cae o dan ddwr / Waterlogged pitch.


Llun / Picture: Rose ShinglerBun rhaid gohirior gm rhwng Port a Chaerfyrddin heddiw. Dymar ail dro y tymor hwn i gm rhwng y clybiau hyn gael ei ohirio. Fel y gwelwch or lluniau hyn, mae cryn dipyn o ddwr ar draws rhan ganol y cae. Doedd dim dewis felly ond galwr gm i ffwrdd am 10 or gloch y bore ma, cyn i Gaerfyrddin ddechrau ar eu taith hir tuar gogledd. Does dim dyddiad newydd wedii drefnu hyd yn hyn. Cliciwch ar y lluniau yma am luniau llawn.

Llun / Picture: Rose ShinglerThe match between Port and Carmarthen had to be called off today. This was the second time this season a match between these clubs has had to be postponed. As you can see from these photos, the pitch in front of the main stand is under water. There was therefore no alternative other than calling the match off this morning at 10am, before Carmarthen started on their long journey northwards. No new date has been set for this fixture.

Gwelliannau i'r cyfleusterau / Continuing Improvements.


Uchelseinydd / LoudspeakerGlywsoch chi Dafydd Wyn yn cyhoeddi ddydd Sadwrn? Naddo ? Wel doeddech chi ddim yn gwrando oherwydd roedd ei lais a hefyd y gerddoriaeth yn hollol glir diolch ir system sain newydd maer clwb wedii brynu. Fel y dywedodd Gerallt yn y rhaglen, yr hen system oedd yr un a ddefnyddiodd Noa i ddidolir anifeiliaid yn yr Arch ers talwm!
Datblygiad arall ydyr un yn stafell y cyfarwyddwyr lle maer ystafell wedii haddasu i gynnwys bar a bydd hwn yn agored i gefnogwyr cyn gmau, yn ystod hanner amser ac ar l y gm. Er bod lle yn brin yno, bu nifer o gefnogwyr yn edrych ar gm Cymru a Seland Newydd yno yn dilyn y gm gwpan rhwng Port a Chaernarfon.
Llongyfarchiadau ir Bwrdd am barhau r gwelliannau sydd eisoes yn cynnwys goleuadau o safon uwch, tarmac yn y maes parcio ac ail hadur cae dros yr haf.

Llun / Picture: Rose ShinglerDid you hear Dafydd Wyn making his half time announcements on Saturday? No? Well in that case you were not listening as his voice and the music came over loud and clear thanks to the new tannoy system that has been installed at the ground. As Gerallt said in the match programme, the old system was apparently the one used by Noah to arrange the animals on the Ark!
Another development has taken place in the Boardroom where a bar area has been formed and this new facility will be available to supporters before games, during half-time and after matches. Though space is limited, a number of supporters availed themselves of the new facilities to watch the Wales v New Zealand match following the cup match between Port and Caernarfon.
Congratulations to the board on the continuing development of facilities at the Traeth. The latest changes come on top of the recent developments which have brought improved floodlighting, tarmac in the car park and re-seeding the playing surface.

Collir Fantais Gynnar / Early goals bring little benefit.


Carl OwenMae tymor Port hyd yma yn dangos dwy fuddugoliaeth yn unig, un yn y gynghrair ac un yng Nghwpan Cymru. Yn ddigon rhyfedd, maent wedi mynd ar y blaen mewn wyth or un ar ddeg gm yn y gynghrair ar cwpanau eleni. Yng Nghwpan y Gynghrair yn erbyn Airbus ym mis Awst, rhoddodd Gareth Caughter hwy ar y blaen ar l 12 munud cyn iddynt gollir gm yn yr ail hanner. Digwyddodd yr un fath wedyn yn erbyn TNS yn y Gynghrair gyda gl Carl Owen ar l deg munud yn rhoir cychwyn gorau posib iddynt a cafwyd perfformiad da a gm gyfartal haeddiannol. Digwyddodd yr un fath mewn gmau cynghrair wedyn yn erbyn Cefn, Bangor, Y Rhyl, Caersws ac hefyd ddydd Sadwrn diwethaf yn Y Drenewydd pan roddodd gl Les Davies hwy ar y blaen. Yr unig un or gmau hyn lle llwyddodd yr hogiau gadwr fantais oedd yn erbyn Y Rhyl ar Y Traeth ar Fedi 25ain. Enillwyd y gm yng Nghwpan Cymru yn erbyn Gresffordd ar l bod tu l am gyfnod tra yn y ddwy gm gynghrair arall llwyddwyd i sgorio goliau hwyr yn erbyn Hwlffordd a Port Talbot gan ennill pwynt.
Ymddengys felly mai problem Port eleni ydy cadwr fantais gan adeiladu ar y goliau cynnar.

The season so far shows two wins only, one in the league and one in the Welsh Cup. Surprisingly however Port have scored first in eight of their eleven games in league and cup competitions this season. In the League Cup against Airbus back in August, Gareth Caughter put them ahead after 12 minutes but they went on to lose the game in the second-half. The same thing happened against TNS in the league when Carl Owens goal after 10 minutes gave them the best possible start but on this occasion an excellent performance earned them a deserved point. It happened again against Cefn and also against Bangor, Rhyl, Caersws and last Saturday against Newtown when Les Davies put them ahead. The only one of these games where Port turned out to be the winners was against Rhyl at the Traeth on September 25th. The game against Gresford in the Welsh Cup ended in a victory for Port after they had been behind for a period, whilst in the other two league games late goals were scored to earn valuable points against Port Talbot and Haverfordwest.
It therefore seems that Ports problem this season is maintaining their advantage and building on their early goals.

Cwpan Cymru / Welsh CupDylai cefnogwyr nodi bydd y gm yng Nghwpan Cymru ar y Traeth ddydd Sadwrn nesaf, Tachwedd 5ed, yn cychwyn am 2 or gloch ac nid yr 2.30 pm. arferol. Mae hyn ar gais y BBC gan mai'r gm rhwng Port a Chaernarfon fydd prif gm ar y Clwb Pl Droed ar S4C nos Sadwrn. Bydd y rhaglen yn dechrau am 7.10 pm.

Cwpan Ieuenctid, Rownd 1: Trallwng 0:3 Port / Youth Cup, Round 1: Welshpool 0:3 Port.


Maes y DreCyfarfur ddau glwb yma yn yr un rownd or gystadleuaeth y llynedd. Y tro hwnnw roedd angen amser ychwanegol i guro tm cystadleuol Y Trallwng ar Faes-y-Dre ond ddoe (Hydref 30) enillodd Port yn gymharol hawdd. Port oedd yn rheolir gm gydai golwr Dylan Edwards yn gwneud fawr fwy na gwylior gm. Tarodd Tom Hughes y postyn ar l 10 munud yn dilyn cyffyrddiad o dafliad hir. Saith munud yn ddiweddarach, daeth y gl gyntaf. Ar l dipyn o flerwch yn amddiffyn Y Trallwng, daeth y bl yn rhydd i chwaraewr y gm Gavin Davies a sgoriodd hwnnw gydag ergyd ln o 10 llathen. Bu ond y dim i Mark Cook ddyblur fantais ddwy funud yn ddiweddarach yn dilyn rhediad unigol da ond arbedodd golwr Y Trallwng yn dda. Arhosodd y sgr yn 1-0 tan yr hanner ond yn yr ail gyfnod tanlinellodd Port eu goruchafiaeth gyda dwy gl arall. Daeth y cyntaf ar l awr diolch ir dyfarnwr JB Roberts a rhoddodd gic or smotyn i Port fel canlyniad i dacl digon diniwed. Manteisiodd Tom Hughes ar y sefyllfa gan yrrur golwr ir cyfeiriad anghywir. Daeth y drydedd ar l 76 munud gyda symudiad da yn rhoir cyfle ir eilydd Ben Chippendale i guror amddiffynnwr a sgorio o 12 llath. Yn munudau olaf y gm, daeth rhyw ychydig o fywyd i chwaraer Trallwng a churwyd Dylan Edwards ond arbedwyd wyneb wrth ir bl daror postyn chwith. Buddugoliaeth dda felly ir hogiau ifanc gyda nifer ohonynt yn denu sylw yn enwedig Gavin Davies, sydd ond yn un ar bymtheg, gydai basio graenus a Liam Watson a ddangosodd gryfder yn y cefn. Y llynedd cyrhaeddodd Port rownd yr wyth olaf cyn colli ar giciau or smotyn yn erbyn Casnewydd enillwyr y gystadleuaeth. Gobeithio fedrwn wneud cam neu ddau yn bellach y tro yma.

These two teams met in the same round of the same competition last season. Then Porthmadog needed extra-time to get past an useful Welshpool side at Maes y Dre but yesterday (Sunday) Porthmadog cruised past a poor Welshpool side. It was Porthmadog who dominated matters with Porthmadog keeper Dylan Edwards a spectator for much of the game. Tom Hughes hit the post after only 10 minutes following a flick on from a long throw. The opening goal came seven minutes later. A bit of a scramble in the Welshpool and the ball fell for man of the match Gavin Davies to score with a crisp shot from 10 yards. Mark Cook almost doubled the advantage two minutes later when his fine run and shot forced the capable Welshpool keeper into a fine save. The score remained 1-0 until half-time, but Porthmadog underlined their ascendancy with two second half goals. The first on the hour was gifted by referee J.B. Roberts who awarded Porthmadog a penalty after an innocuous looking challenge in the box. Tom Hughes needed no second chance and scored sending the keeper the wrong way. The third came on 76 minutes with good build up setting up substitute Ben Chippendale to beat the last defender and fire home from 12 yards. In the dying seconds Welshpool did stir into life and Dylan Edwards was beaten but the left hand post saved his blushes. So a good win for the youngsters with a number of players catching the eye, midfielder Gavin Davies who is only 16 was outstanding with his passing and Liam Watson had a strong game in defence. Porthmadog reached the quarter finals last season going out to the eventual winners Newport County on penalties so lets hope they can go one better this season.

Trallwng yn ymuno a'r Cynghrair dan-21 / Welshpool join under-21 League


Logo Trallwng / Welshpool LogoCaniatawyd ir Trallwng gael mynediad i adran y gogledd or Gynghrair Dan-21. Er nad oeddynt ymysg y clybiau gwreiddiol, byddant yn cael cymryd rhestr gemau Caernarfon sydd wedi tynnu allan or gynghrair. Roedd Port i chwarae Caernarfon ar Y Traeth ar Hydref 4ydd.

Nid oes gan Port gm i fod tan ddydd Llun, Tachwedd 14eg pan fyddant yn ymweld TNS.

Welshpool Town have been given permission to make a late entry into the northern section of the Under-21 League. Though they were not among the original entries, they will take over the fixtures allocated to Caernarfon who have withdrawn from the league. Port were to have played Caernarfon at Y Traeth on October 4th. According to John Deakin, the small fixture backlog can be dealt with before Christmas. Clubs will no doubt welcome this move as it will bring the league up to six clubs. Port are not scheduled to play again until Monday, November 14th when they are due to visit TNS.

Chris McGinnGl ar l 88 munud a roddodd y fuddugoliaeth i Fangor pan chwaraeodd Port eu gm gyntaf yn y Gynghrair dan 21 nos Lun ar Ffordd Ffarar. Gl Mark Jones ir tm cartref oedd unig gl y gm. Cafodd y chwaraewr profiadol Chris McGinn (dde) ei gynnwys yn nhm Bangor ac hefyd yr ymosodwr tm cyntaf Michael Burke. Yn nhm Port yr oedd Jason Harvey, a sgoriodd y gl a roddodd gm gyfartal i Port yn Hwlffordd ddydd Sadwrn. Cafwyd perfformiadau da gan Geraint Mitchell ac Iwan Thomas yn yr amddiffyn ac roedd cyflymder Ceri Roberts yn achosi problemau i amddiffyn Bangor ond, yn anffodus, ni lwyddodd i sgorio. Roedd presenoldeb Viv Williams a Peter Davenport ar Ffordd Ffarar yn dangos fod y ddau reolwr yn rhoi y pwysigrwydd mwyaf i gemau ar y lefel yma.
Tm Port: Dylan Edwards, Arwel Evans, Steve Owen, Liam Watson,, Geraint Mitchell, Iwan Thomas, Jason Harvey, Matthew Webber, Ceri Roberts, Tom Hughes, Carwyn Edwards. Eilyddion: Iestyn Holloway, Iwan Williams, Steve Cope, Gary Hughes.

A goal after 88 minutes gave Bangor City the win when Port played their first Under-21 League game at Farrar Road on Monday. Included in the Bangor team were the experienced Chris McGinn (above) and first team forward Michael Burke. Jason Harvey, last Saturdays scorer in the game at Haverfordwest, was included in the Port line-up. Geraint Mitchell and Iwan Thomas performed well in the Port defence whilst the pace of Ceri Roberts gave the home defence problems but unfortunately he did not manage an all important goal. The presence of Viv Williams and Peter Davenport at Farrar Road indicates the importance that both managers attach to matches at this level.
Port Squad: Dylan Edwards, Arwel Evans, Steve Owen, Liam Watson,, Geraint Mitchell, Iwan Thomas, Jason Harvey, Matthew Webber, Ceri Roberts, Tom Hughes, Carwyn Edwards. Subs: Iestyn Holloway, Iwan Williams, Steve Cope, Gary Hughes.

Hwlffordd yn cwyno / Haverfordwest voice concern


HwlfforddYmunodd Hwlffordd, trwy John Hughes golygydd eu rhaglen, r lleisiau a fynegodd siom gydar penderfyniad i chwarae gemau ar Hydref 8fed a hynny yn cystadlu gm Cymru yn erbyn Gogledd Iwerddon. Yn y rhaglen ddydd Sadwrn, dywedodd John Hughes:
Dyma ein trydydd gm adref yn olynol ac nid ywr gefnogaeth wedi bod yn dda o gwbl. Mae tu hwnt imi pam oedd yn rhaid inni chwarae ein gm Sadwrn diwethaf pan oedd Cymru yn chwarae Gogledd Iwerddon a honno yn fyw ar y teledu.
Maen amlwg felly, wrth i glybiau frwydro yn erbyn prinder arian, edrychant i gyfeiriad y rhai sydd mewn awdurdod i ddangos ychydig fwy o ddealltwriaeth or sefyllfa a wynebir gan glybiau.
Ta waith, cafodd John Deakin un peth o leiaf yn iawn Sadwrn diwethaf. Sylwais y canlynol yn ei ragolygon yn y Back Page: Dyna y pedwerydd tro mewn chwe gm i Port gael gm gyfartal ac maen bosib iawn y cawn y bumed wrth deithio ir de i gyfarfod Hwlffordd sydd wedi dod yn gyfartal pedair gwaith yn eu saith gm hyd yn hyn.

Haverfordwest, through their programme editor, joined the voices expressing concern at the decision to go ahead with October 8ths programme of matches in direct competition with the game against Northern Ireland. In last Saturdays programme, John Hughes said:
This is our third Saturday home game on the trot, and the attendances have not been very good at all really. It is beyond me why we had to play at home last Saturday when Wales were playing N. Ireland and that was televised live.
Clearly clubs are always aware of financial constraints upon them and they would welcome a little more understanding of their situation by the powers that be.
Talking about the powers that be -John Deakin did get one thing right last Saturday though for I notice in his Back Page contribution he forecasts: That was the fourth draw in six outings for Port and they may well get number five when they travel south to take on Haverfordwest County who have drawn four of their seven matches so far.

Diffyg Trefn y Gemau / Fixture Chaos.


Viv WilliamsMae Viv Williams yn dweud yn ei nodiadau yn rhaglen y gm at ddydd Sadwrn:
"... maen wirion inni fod yn chwarae ar yr un amser ag y mae Cymru yn chwarae mewn gm ragbrofol yng Nghwpan y Byd. Maen rhaid bod gmau Cymru yn hysbys deunaw mis yn l ac ni ddylai gemau Uwch Gynghrair Cymru gael eu trefnu i gystadlu hwy ond ou cwmpas."
Cydymdeimlwn Viv - nid ywn ddigon da ir rhai mewn awdurdod weld bai ar y clybiau am beidio ad-drefnu gemau gan eu bod yn hollol sicr na ddylair gmau yma fod wediu trefnu ar ddyddiad pan oedd y tm cenedlaethol yn chwarae. Dylid cofio fod y tymor i glybiau Uwch Gynghrair Cymru yn gorffen yn anhygoel o gynnar ar Ebrill 22ain ac nid oedd problem felly mewn sicrhau Sadwrn gwag ar Hydref 8fed. Cafodd Port gefnogaeth dda iawn eleni ac er ei fod yn syndod fod gymaint 167 wedi dod ir gm roedd yn siom nad oedd yn bosib parhaur rhediad da o dorfeydd. Wedir cyfan, torfeydd isel ydy gwendid pennaf cynghrair sydd yn ceisio datblygu a siom ydy mai trefniadaeth y gynghrair ei hun syn achosir broblem.
Bu cawlach efo dyddiadaur gynghrair dan-21 a hyn yn ychwanegu at broblemaur gynghrair newydd honno. Cafodd gmau eu trefnu ar yr un noson gm Cymru yn erbyn Azerbaijan a hynny yn groes i gyfarwyddyd y Gymdeithas Bel droed. Trefniadaeth amaturaidd ydy hyn sydd yn gwneud y gynghrair yn gyff gwawd.

Viv Williams says in his programme notes before Saturdays game:
" it is crazy that we should be playing at the same time as Wales are playing a World Cup qualifier. Surely the Wales fixtures were known 18 months ago and Welsh Premier matches should be scheduled around them and not in direct competition."
We share Viv's concerns - it really is not good enough for those in authority to blame the clubs for not re-scheduling games as they should clearly have not been fixed on a date when Wales were playing. After all the Welsh Premier season finishes incredibly early on April 22nd so it was perfectly possible to have a free Saturday on October 8th. Port have enjoyed excellent gates so far this season and though it was surprising to see as many as 167 at the game it is disappointing that the good run of attendances could not be continued. Poor attendances have been identified as a major weakness of the Welsh Premier as it tries to progress and it is disappointing when we shoot ourselves in the foot in this way.
A similar date muddle has added to the difficulties of the under-21 league with matches unbelievably scheduled for the same evening as the Wales v Azerbaijan game. Does this not contravene an FAW directive that games should not clash with home internationals? This is very amateurish organisation and makes our league a laughing stock.

Chwaraewyr Newydd / New Players.


Yn ogystal ag arwyddo Neil Thomas, a chwaraeodd ran allweddol yn ei gm gyntaf i Port ddydd Sadwrn yn erbyn Caersws gan sgorio gl bwysig a phasio yn gelfydd, mae dau chwaraewr arall wedi arwyddo ir clwb yn ddiweddar. Ymddangosodd un or chwaraewyr yma sef Jason Harvey yn erbyn Caersws ddydd Sadwrn gan ddod or fainc a chyfrannu cic gornel arbennig ir postyn pellaf ac arweiniodd hon at y drydedd gl yn erbyn Caersws sef yr un gan Les Davies . Bu Jason allan yn yr Unol Daleithiau am dair blynedd gan ddychwelyd yn ddiweddar. Y chwaraewr arall ydy Michael Innes golwr o Gaergybi a fydd yn eilydd i Richard Harvey sydd wedi chwarae mor dda ers dychwelyd ir clwb.

Further signings have been made in addition to Neil Thomas who played a key part in the draw against Caersws scoring the second goal and contributing some telling passes. One of these newcomers also showed up well on Saturday. Jason Harvey came from the bench to provide an excellent far post corner which lead to Les Davies goal against Caersws. Prior to joining Port, Jason returned from a three year spell in the United States. The other player is goalkeeper Michael Innes from Holyhead who will provide cover for Richard Harvey who has been in such excellent form since returning to the club.

Gm y Cwpan Cenedlaethol i Ffwrdd / Premier Cup match off.


Caerfyrddin / CarmarthenHeno, gohiriwyd gm gyntaf Port yn y Gwpan Cenedlaethol, a oedd i fod yn erbyn Caerfyrddin. Ond yn syndod i bawb, nid y glaw ofnadwy yn ystod y dydd a achosodd y gohiriad ond oherwydd i'r llifoleuadau fethu ar un ochr y cae! Nid yw'n sicr pryd y bydd y gm yn cael ei aildrefnu.

Port's first ever game in the Premier Cup, which should have been against Carmarthen, was tonight cancelled. However, this was not due to the extremely heavy rain today but due to a floodlight failure on one side of the ground! It is not yet known when the game will be re-arranged for.

Gm dan 21 Ffwrdd / Under 21 match off.


Bun rhaid gohirior ail gm yn y gynghrair dan 21 sef honno a oedd iw chwarae heno (Hydref 11eg) yn erbyn Bangor ar Ffordd Ffarar. Bydd Port yn chwarae Caerfyrddin yn y Gwpan Genedlaethol heno (Hydref 11eg am 7 or gloch) ac felly nid oedd yn bosib codi tm ar gyfer y gm dan 21 hefyd ar yr un noson.

The under 21 match, due to be played at Ffarar Road against Bangor City tonight, (October 11th) has had to be postponed. This is the second under 21 league game that has had to be postponed and this time, because of the Premier Cup clash between Port and Carmarthen scheduled for the same evening, (October 11th k.o 7pm). Port have not been able to fulfil both fixtures on the same evening.

Neil Thomas yn arwyddo i Port / Port sign Neil Thomas.


Mae Port wedi arwyddo chwaraewr canol cae Llanelli, Neil Thomas. Chwaraeodd Neil ran allweddol wrth i Lanelli osgoi mynd i lawr llynedd. Yn dilyn cyfnod diweddar allan yn Irac gydar RAF, mae Thomas wedi dychwelyd i Gymru. Bydd Thomas, syn dod yn wreiddiol o ardal Dyffryn Nantlle, yn ychwanegiad gwych ir garfan. Llwyddodd i gadw ei le yn nhm Llanelli ar ddechraur tymor er bod cymaint o chwaraewyr proffesiynol wediu harwyddo. Enillodd wobr chwaraewr y mis wrth chwarae i Lanelli fis Rhagfyr diwethaf. Mae wedi cynrychioli tm yr RAF ar Lluoedd Arfog. Maen debyg y bydd yn dechrau yn erbyn Caersws ddydd Sadwrn.

Port have signed Llanelli midfielder Neil Thomas. Neil played a vital part in Llanellis escape from the drop last season. Following a spell out in Iraq with the RAF Thomas has returned to Wales. Thomas, who is originally from the Dyffryn Nantlle area will be an excellent addition to the squad. He managed to keep his place in the Llanelli line-up early in the season despite the arrival of many professional players. He picked up the player of the month award last December while at Llanelli. He has represented the RAF and Combined Forces football teams. He is expected to start against Caersws on Saturday.

Llongyfarchiadau i Les Davies wedi iw gl yn erbyn TNS gael ei gynnwys ar restr fer o 6 yng nghystadleuaeth Gl y Mis ar raglen Y Clwb Pel-droed S4C. Malcolm Allen fydd yn penderfynu ar yr enillydd, ond byddain beth rhyfedd iawn os na fydd y gl hon yn mynd ymlaen i gael ei hystyried yng nghystadleuaeth gl y tymor.

Congratulations to Les Davies after his goal against TNS was included on the shortlist of 6 for the Goal of the Month competition on S4Cs Y Clwb Pel-droed. The winner will be chosen by Malcolm Allen, but it would be quite a shock if this goal does not go on to be considered in the competition for the goal of the season.
