Port v Inter Cable Tel - 29/03/98

Home sweet home, back at Y Traeth after three difficult away matches at Welshpool, Ebbw Vale and Bangor City, three matches which have yielded a precious four points. After today's match against our high flying visitors we are again on our travels for the long trek to Cwmbran next Saturday, followed the next week by a visit to North Wales by Champions elect Barry Town, that's what you call a hard run of fixtures. At this stage of the season we must take every match in our stride and pick up points where we can if we are to achieve our goal of League of Wales survival.

One topical issue at the moment is the sleaze row at Newcastle, coupled with their slip into the relegation area or the Premiership. Through this column I would like to assure supporters that we do not make massive profits on our replica shirts, and I have never been to a brothel in Marbella and the only dogs in Port are the four legged variety, but I do have many memories of relegation struggles. Shortage of cash, long travel, selling your best players etc. Unfortunately all these problems are a symptom of new league management, a job I have been doing for many years, what I am saying is that I with john Aspinall have loads of experience if that counts for anything and as captains of the ship we are using our combined knowledge to steer our ship into calmer waters.

Anyway enough gloom and doom, lets hope that today's match is exciting. George Wood has certainly built an exciting team at CableTel, and this season played the match of their dreams in the UEFA Cup against Ceitic. Apart from both legs producing a big match atmosphere they made loads of money and qualified for next seasonís Invitation Cup, congratulations to them, but for my part I will be hoping they slip up at Y Traeth today as three home points would be most welcome. Over the last few weeks I have been able to strengthen the squad with the addition of Kenny Woods, Martin Hynes and Chris Waring. I also hope today's squad will be strengthened by my new signing Godfrey Obebo who will hopefully be visiting Porthmadog with Paul Osahan who hopes to start up our football in the community scheme at Y Traeth during the summer. This project is of course reliant on finance and grant aid being available, Paul is at present Community and YTS officer for Third Division Barnet but would like to settle permanently in the Port area near to his native home of Ireland. Paul incidentally has a degree in Sports Science gained in Ireland where he played in the League of Ireland before joining Gillingham, Burley and Halifax. Paul has also played in his fathers home country of Nigeria and in the new American League where he had a six month spell with Colorado. So he certainly has a varied experience in football and will hopefully become a big asset to Porthmadog FC and the local community.
