Bickerstaff yw Prif Hyfforddwr y Rhyl / Bickerstaff is Rhyls new Head Coach.

Allan BickerstaffWedi iddo arwain Rhyl i fuddugoliaeth o 1-0 yn erbyn clwb Distillery o Ogledd Iwerddon dros y penwythnos, doedd y cyhoeddiad heddiw fod Allan Bickerstaff wedii benodin Brif Hyfforddwr y Rhyl ddim yn fawr o syndod. Ymunodd Bickerstaff Phorthmadog o glwb Airbus Brychdyn fis Tachwedd diwethaf i helpu Viv Williams yn y frwydr yn erbyn y cwymp. Cyn hyn bu Bickerstaff, Swyddog Datblygu Pl-droed Sir Ddinbych, yn Reolwr Clwb Prestatyn. Diolch i Allan am ei waith caled dros y tymor, a phob hwyl iddo yn ei swydd newydd!

After having lead Rhyl to a 1-0 victory against Distillery of Norther Ireland over the weekend, the announcement today that Allan Bickerstaff has been appointed as Rhyls Head Coach was not a huge shock. Bickerstaff joined Porthmadog from Airbus Broughton last November to help Viv Williams in the fight against relegation. Before this Bickerstaff, Denbighshires Football Development Officer, was manager of Prestatyn Town. Thanks to Allan for all his hard work over the season, and all the best to him in his new post!

Welsh Football MagazineDymar adeg or flwyddyn pan mae gwobraur cylchgrawn Welsh Football yn cael eu cyhoeddi. Gyda balchder, gallwn gyhoeddi mai i CPD Porthmadog maer brif wobr yn mynd am y wefan orau yng Nghymru am dymor 2007/08. Bydd ymwelwyr rheolaidd r safle yn cofio mai gwefan Porthmadog enillodd y wobr hon hefyd yn 2006/07. Dros y ddegawd diwethaf, mae gwefan Port wedi ennill y wobr bedair gwaith gan ennill hefyd yn 1998/1999 ac 1999/2000.
Yn ei ddyfarniad dywedodd Dave Collins y Golygydd:
"...rwyf eto am edrych i gyfeiriad gwefan ardderchog CPD Porthmadog sydd yn sgorion uchel am y cynnwys, diweddaru rheolaidd ac efallai yn fwy na dim am gynllun y wefan. Yn arbennig, fe hoffais fod yna ddigonedd o luniau or gemau ac i gyd yn cael eu cyrraedd drwy ddefnyddior eicon camera or dudalen canlyniadau. Nid yw Port yn newydd ir wobr hon gan hwy ai enillodd y llynedd a hefyd yn 1999 a 2000, blynyddoedd cyntaf y wobr. Maen glod ir clwb eu bod wedi cadw i fyny gydar arfer gorau wrth gynllunio gwefannau ac wedi dal ati drwy gydol y ddegawd.
Dywedodd un o'r gwefeistri Emyr Gareth, Maen braf derbyn gwobr wrth gylchgrawn sydd wedi cyfrannu cymaint, ar bob lefel, i bl-droed yng Nghymru. Yn plesion arbennig maer sylw am gynllun y wefan gan mai ni sydd yn gwneud y cynllunio ein hunain, heb ddibynnu ar gwmni proffesiynol yn y maes. Ychwanegodd Iwan Gareth, y cyd-wefeistr, Maen bwysig i bob agwedd ar y clwb gael ei adlewyrchu ar y wefan ond mae sicrhau hyn y dibynnu ar dderbyn gwybodaeth am y tm cyntaf, yr ail dm ar academi.
Ymysg y clybiau eraill o Uwch Gynghrair Cymru a ddaeth yn agos ir brig eleni oedd Caerfyrddin, Port Talbot a TNS. Llongyfarchiadau hefyd i Risca y clwb a ddaeth yn ail a hefyd i CPD Penrhyncoch enillwyr gwobr Y newydd ddyfodiaid gorau.

Gwefan CPD Porthmadog FC websiteThis is the time of year when the Welsh Football Magazine announces its programme and website awards for the season. We are proud to announce that the main annual award for the best Welsh club site overall for season 2007-08 goes to the CPD Porthmadog website. Regular visitors to the site will be aware that this site was also the winner last season. In fact the Porthmadog site has won the award on four occasions in the past decade, having previously won this highly regarded award in 1998-1999 and 1999-2000.
Magazine editor Dave Collins said in his review for 2007/08:
...this year again Im giving the nod to CPD Porthmadogs excellent site which scores highly on content, regularity of update and probably most of all design. I particularly like the abundance of match photos accessed from the fixtures /results page via the camera icon. Porthmadog are no strangers to this award having lifted it for its first two years in 1999 and 2000 as well as last year. So its a real credit to the club that they have kept pace with the best practice in website design and maintenance over the ensuing decade.
Co-webmaster Emyr Gareth said, It is pleasing to receive this reward from a magazine which has contributed so much to domestic Welsh football at all levels. Especially pleasing is the comment about website design as we design the website ourselves - unlike many clubs whose sites are designed by dedicated professional companies. Joint webmaster Iwan Gareth added. It is important that all sections of the club are reflected on the website but to do this we depend on others to supply all relevant information whether it is about the first team, the reserves or the academy.
Other WPL sites in the running for this years award were Carmarthen Town, Port Talbot and TNS. Congratulations also to Risca AFC who are this years runners-up and to CPD Penrhyncoch who lifted the best newcomers award.
Dont forget that the excellent Welsh Football magazine is available at the Club Shop.

Gwaith ar y Traeth / Work at the Traeth

Y Traeth - PorthmadogFisoedd cyn dechrau'r tymor newydd, mae gwaith i wella'r maes ar y Traeth wedi cael ei ddechrau. Mae'r gwaith, fydd yn derbyn grant gan Uwchgynghrair Cymru, yn cynnwys ail-hadu'r holl gae, gosod gwrtaith ac rhoi tua 40 tunell o bridd newydd dros wyneb y cae. Bydd gwaith osod 2 fainc eilyddion newydd - y ddwy ar ochr y stand o'r cae - hefyd yn digwydd yr haf yma, ynghyd a gwaith o wella llwyfan y camerau teledu. Bydd hyn yn cael ei gefnogi gan grant o'r FAW.

With months still to go before the start of the new season, work to improve the Traeth pitch has just been started. The work to be completed with a grant from the Welsh Premier League, includes re-seeding the entire pitch, applying fertilizer and spreading some 40 tonnes of top dressing on the pitch. Further work to purchase and erect new dugouts which will both be situated on the grandstand side of the pitch as well as work on the television gantry is in the pipeline for the summer. Again this will be supported by an FAW grant.

Its early days; Im hoping to keep most of last seasons squad and might look to bring in one or two others, but its too early to say.
The aim is to have a good pre-season and get all the players fit enough first for the challenges ahead.

Y Cadeirydd yn croesawu apwyntiad Paul Whelan / Chairman welcomes Paul Whelans appointment

Phil JonesMae Cadeirydd Clwb Pl-droed Porthmadog, Phil Jones, wedi croesawu penderfyniad Paul Whelan i dderbyn y swydd o reolwr newydd y clwb i ddilyn Viv Williams a ymddiswyddodd ar l sicrhau bodolaeth y Port yn Uwch Gynghrair Cymru yn ddiweddar. Cyhoeddwyd penodiad Paul dros y penwythnos ar l i'r Bwrdd gyfweld pump ymgeisydd dros gyfnod o bythefnos.
Yn l Phil Jones "Pan benderfynodd Viv ac Osian roir gorau iddi llynedd ar l saith mlynedd llwyddiannus wrth y llyw, yn anffodus rhythwyd i wneud penderfyniad a phenodi heb ystyried y darlun ehangach. Yn anffodus arweiniodd hyn at sefyllfa argyfyngus ac oni bai am ymdrechion Viv ag Alan Bickerstaff dros wythnosau olaf y tymor byddem yn wynebu tymor newydd yn y Gynghrair Undebol. Pan benderfynodd Viv na fyddai yn cario ymlaen 'roedd yn bwysig ein bod yn penodi yn fuan ond heb rhuthr y llynedd. Cawsom ein beirniadu i raddau am hyn gyda cryn ddiddordeb yn y pwnc ar ein safle we - diddordeb yr ydym, fel Bwrdd, yn ei groesawu wrth gwrs gan ei fod yn tanlinellu y diddordeb sydd yn y Clwb a'i dynged. Y tro yma 'roeddem am sicrhau y penodiad iawn ac felly penderfynwyd trafod yn ddwfn gyda pob un o'r ymgeiswyr ac fe wnaethpwyd hynny. Nid ydym, felly, yn ymddiheuro am yr oedi cyn gwneud penderfyniad."
Aeth Phil ymlaen i ddweud "Rhaid cofio mai Port yw'r unig glwb o Ogledd Cymru yn y Gynghrair Genedlaethol bellach sydd a pholisi pendant o roi cyfle i chwaraewyr Cymreig a Chymraeg- ac gwir yw ein ymdeimlad tuag at Llangefni a geisiodd efelychu y polisi hwn. Nid chwaraewyr yn unig mohoni ond rheolwyr a hyfforddwyr ac mae'n drist gweld rheolwyr ifanc talentog lleol yn cael eu hanwybyddu gan ein prif glybiau. Dylwn nodi bod ein penderfyniad ar reolwr newydd wedi bod yn ornest rhwng dau o'r Gynghrair Undebol - ac rhywsut neu'i gilydd mae'n bwysig bod trefn yn ei le i ddatblygu hyn. Ni fu erioed yn fwriad gan glwb Porthmadog benodi rheolwr neu hyfforddwr a fyddai'n mewnforio llond bws mini o chwaraewyr bob penwythnos! Edrychwn ymlaen yn awr i gyd weithio gyda Paul fel y gallwn symud ymlaen i gyfnod llwyddiannus newydd."

CPD Porthmadog FCPorthmadog FC Chairman Phil Jones has welcomed Paul Whelan's decision to become the Club's new manager to follow Viv Williams who resigned as Caretaker Manager after steering the club clear of relegation after a turbulent season in the Welsh Premier League. Paul's appointment was confirmed recently after an interview process which spanned two weeks and included in-depth interviews with five applicants.
According to Chairman Phil Jones "When Viv and Osian decided to call it a day after seven successful years, unfortunately we rushed into a decision last year without considering the more comprehensive picture. As a result this led to a turbulent season which was only salvaged through the efforts of Viv and Alan Bickerstaff - or otherwise we would now be facing life in the Cymru Alliance! When Viv decided to call it a day it was imperative that we move quickly to appoint a new manager, but with far more consideration and thought than last time around. We have been criticised-especially by some contributors to the discussion section of our own web site- for taking our time in making a new appointment but we do not apologise for this as this time around we were looking for somebody who can complement the club's five year business plan which in essence surrounds the development of our Youth Academy as well as our policy of ensuring that the best players in North West Wales are being given the opportunity to perform on the national stage."
Phil went on to say "It should be remembered that Port is now the only North Wales based WPL club who has a genuine 'locals' policy -and to this extent we mourn the loss of Llangefni Town who bravely emulated this stance before their relegation. But this does not extend to players only but also managers. We had made a conscious decision that the last thing we wanted was a manager who would ship in mini bus loads of players from outside the area every weekend! Our final decision rested between two managers who had made an impression in the Cymru Alliance - and if Welsh football is to move ahead then new opportunities for managers at this level are also essential. We now look forward to working together with Paul to further develop the Club's plans and aspirations".

Whelo ydyr dyn! / It's Whelo!

Paul WhelanMae CPD Porthmadog yn falch o gyhoeddi eu bod wedi apwyntio Paul Whelan, cyn chwaraewr efo'r clwb, i olynu Viv Williams fel rheolwr. Roedd ei enw wedii grybwyll fel rheolwr posib ers iddo ymddiswyddo fel rheolwr Glantraeth or Cymru Alliance. Ond deallwn ei fod wedi penderfynu gadael Glantraeth cyn iddo gael cynnig y swydd yn Porthmadog. Ers tipyn, roedd wedi teimlon siomedig nad oedd y clwb o Ynys Mn yn ddigon uchelgeisiol ac felly wedi gwneud y penderfyniad i adael. Teimlad bwrdd Porthmadog ydy eu bod wedi apwyntio rheolwr sydd yn rhannu yr un uchelgais a gydar cefndir pl-droed i barhau gyda pholisi traddodiadol y clwb o roi cyfle i chwaraewyr lleol ar y lefel uchaf o bl-droed yng Nghymru.
Chwaraeodd Whelo 49 o weithiau i Port yn Uwch Gynghrair Cymru rhwng 1995 ac 1998 ac yn 1995/96 sgoriodd 15 o goliau o ganol cae mewn 34 gm. Cynt, roedd yn yr un tm ym Mangor Viv Williams ac fe sgoriodd yn Ffeinal Tlws yr FA yn Wembley yn 1984. Hefyd chwaraeodd yn y gemau mawr yn erbyn Atletico Madrid yng Ngwpan enillwyr Cwpanau Ewrop. Mae ganddo record ardderchog fel rheolwr. Ar l cyfnod llwyddiannus, er y diffyg adnoddau, yn rheoli Bae Cemaes aeth Glantraeth ir ail safle yn y Cymru Alliance yn 2004/05. Y flwyddyn ganlynol, enillodd Glantraeth y gynghrair ar cwpan. Ymysg y chwaraewyr a ddaeth i amlygrwydd gyda Paul yn Glantraeth mae Ryan a Les Davies a Paul Pritchard, golwr Cei Conna. Disgwylir y bydd y bwrdd yn cyhoeddi staff i gefnogi Paul Whelan yn fuan iawn.

Porthmadog FC are pleased to announce that they have appointed former player Paul Whelan to succeed Viv Williams as their manager. His name had been the subject of speculation since he resigned his post at Cymru Alliance club, Glantraeth but we understand that he had made this decision prior to his appointment to the managers chair at Porthmadog. He had become disenchanted with Glantraeths inability to match his ambitions for the club and had determined to leave the Anglesey club. The Port board feel that they have appointed a manager who matches their ambitions and has the correct managerial background to carry on Ports traditional policy of giving local players an opportunity to play at the highest level of Welsh domestic football.
Whelo made 49 WPL appearances for Port between 1995 and 1998 and scored 15 goals from midfield in 34 appearances in 1995/96. He previously played in the same Bangor City side as former manager Viv Williams, scoring at Wembley in the 1984 FA Trophy final. He also played in the famous European Cup Winners ties against Atletico Madrid. He has an excellent managerial record. After a successful period with Cemaes Bay on limited resources, he took Glantraeth to second place in the Cymru Alliance in 2004/05 and the following season they completed the league and cup double. Amongst the players who came to prominence with Paul at Glantraeth include Ryan and Les Davies and Paul Pritchard the Connahs Quay keeper. The club expects to announce the new managers backroom staff very shortly.

Daeth Bontnewydd yn l ir gm am ysbaid gyda gl o ymosodiad sydyn deuddeg munud or diwedd. Roedd hyn yn torrir ddwy gl o fantais yr oedd Port wedi dal ers yr hanner cyntaf.

Porthmadog 3 Bontnewydd 1
Port, who looked comfortable holding a two goal lead at the interval, were given a brief scare when a breakaway 78th minute goal brought Bontnewydd back into the game. The game was settled, however, when Iwan Williams scored his second of the game in the final minute running on to Ceri Robertss through ball and firing into the net from 15 yards. Port had dominated the game in the opening half playing some excellent passing football going into the lead in the 12th minute when Iwan Williams raced on to Mark Bridges cross field pass and crashed the ball into the roof of the net. The inevitable Matthew Hughes doubled Ports lead when he rose at the back post to head Mark Bridges corner into the net. Port ran out well deserved winners at the end to collect the trophy from league president Selwyn Griffith.

Cystadleuaeth y Bedair Gwlad / Four Nations Tournament

Cymru / WalesCymru .....1 Yr Alban .....1
Dylai Cymru fod wedi sicrhau buddugoliaeth mewn gm a wnaethon ei rheoli am gyfnodau hir, yn arbennig yn ystod yr ail hanner. Sgoriodd Graham Evans (Caersws) gl unigol dda iw rhoi ar y blaen ar l 23 ond daeth Yr Alban yn l cyn yr hanner pan lwyddodd Robbie Ross fynd rhwng y ddau amddiffynnwr canol i benio heibio Wayne Morris. Rheolwyd yr ail hanner gan Gymru ond wedi i Graham Evans a Chris Venables (Trallwng) gael eu heilyddio, collwyd llawer or momentwm. Roedd Venables a Craig Jones (Llanelli) wedi cyd chwarae yn arbennig yng nghanol cae Cymru.
Sgr arall y noson oedd: Gibraltar 0-1 Lloegr.

Wales .....1 Scotland .....1
This was a game which Wales dominated territorially especially in the second period but failed to turn it to their advantage. Graham Evans (Caersws) scored a fine individual goal after 23 to put the home side ahead but Scotland, despite being under pressure for long periods, drew level on the stroke of halftime when Robbie Ross got between the two central defenders to head past Wayne Morris. Wales totally dominated the second period but appeared to lose momentum following the withdrawal of Graham Evans and Chris Venables (Welshpool), who had combined well with Craig Jones (Llanelli) in the Welsh midfield.

John Gwynfor yn gadael Port / John Gwynfor leaves Port

John GwynforRoedd bwriad John i roir gorau i chwarae yn Uwch Gynghrair Cymru wedi bod yn hysbys ir mwyafrif o gefnogwyr, ond bellach maer newyddion yn swyddogol. Penderfynodd John ddychwelyd y tymor nesaf i Nefyn, sef ei hen glwb, fel chwaraewr rheolwr y clwb or Welsh Alliance, gan ddilyn Jason Jones yn y swydd honno. Felly y gm holl bwysig yn erbyn Y Rhyl oedd ei gm olaf yng nghrys Port a ni fedrai fod wedi cael diweddglo mwy cyffrous iw gyfnod ar Y Traeth. Llwyddodd y pedwar yn y cefn, a fu mor bwysig i lwyddiant y clwb o dan Viv ac Osian, sicrhau na ildiwyd yr un gl yn y ddwy gm olaf yng Nghaerfyrddin ac adref yn erbyn Y Rhyl. Disgrifiodd ei gyn reolwr, Viv Williams, allu amddiffynnol John ymysg y gorau yn y gynghrair. Roedd yr holl droeon wnaeth glirior bl oddi ar y llinell yn dyst iw allu i ddarllen y gm ac i fod yn y lle iawn ar yr amser iawn. Maen chwaraewr dibynadwy syn medru defnyddior ddwy droed ac er nad yw y talaf o chwaraewyr mae hefyd yn ardderchog yn yr awyr. Yn ystod ei bum tymor Uwch Gynghrair Cymru, dechreuodd 133 o weithiau i Port ac ymddangosodd 5 gwaith fel eilydd. Byddwn yn colli presenoldeb John ar Y Traeth a hefyd ei frwdfrydedd byth yn roi llai na cant y cant. Or cychwyn bun ffefryn gydar cefnogwyr a rwan dymunwn iddo bob llwyddiant gyda Nefyn.

John Gwynfors departure, which had been rumoured since the end of the season, is now official. He has decided to call it a day at WPL level and will return to his former club Nefyn United as player manager, succeeding Jason Jones in that role with the Welsh Alliance club. The relegation showdown with Rhyl, therefore, proved to be his final appearance in a Port shirt and he could hardly have had a more remarkable finale. The back four, which had been the backbone of a side which had maintained a mid table position under Viv and Osian, came good again to keep vital clean sheets at Carmarthen and home to Rhyl. His former manager Viv Williams rated him at his best to be amongst the best defensive full backs in the WPL. An excellent reader of the game, as the number of last ditch goal line clearances he made bear testimony. A sound reliable two footed defender who despite his stature is excellent in the air. During his five WPL seasons he made 133 starts plus five substitute appearances. Johns presence and enthusiasm will be sadly missed at the Traeth for he never gave less than a 100%. From the time he joined the club, he proved to be a firm favourite with the supporters. We wish him every success at Nefyn.

Port yn dathlu 125 o flynyddoedd! / Port celebrate 125 years!

Bydd y clwb yn dathlu ei ben-blwydd yn 125 oed yn ystod 2009 - sefydlwyd y clwb ffurfiol cyntaf yn 1884 er bod hanes o bl-droed yn cael ei chwarae yn y dref rai blynyddoedd cyn hynny. Y Traeth fu cartref y clwb ers y cychwyn ac maer tm wedi cynrychiolir dref yn gyson mewn sawl cystadleuaeth a'r unig dro lle nad oedd tm yn cynrychioli'r Port o gwbl oedd yn ystod tymor 1983/4 - sef ei GANMLWYDDIANT! Felly gan i ni golli'r cyfle hwnnw mae siawns eto yn 2009 i unioni'r cam! Beth am bwyllgor i drefnur dathliadau? Chwedl rhywun rhyw dro "Pa sefydliad arall yn y dref sydd wedi chwarae rhan mor bwysig yn rhoir dref ar y map yn ddi-dor ers 1884 - a hyd yn oed heddiw yn denu cefnogwyr ledled y byd drwy sylw ar orsafoedd teledu megis Sky?"

The Club will be celebrating its 125th. birthday during 2009 - the first 'formal' club was established in 1884 although football was played within the town some years before that. The Traeth has always been its home and football was played without any break until the 1983/4 season - its 100th ANNIVERSARY! - when ironically no team represented Porthmadog in any competition. Having missed that opportunity we now have a chance to make up for this in 2009! What about a spontaneous committee to organise the celebrations? As someone once said "What other organisation within the town has constantly played such an important role in putting Porthmadog on the map - and even today is winning hundreds of new friends and supporters throughout the world because of exposure on TV stations like Sky?"
