DIOLCH I’R CYNGOR TREF / THANKS TO TOWN COUNCIL

Hoffai swyddogion y clwb ddiolch o galon i Gyngor Tref Porthmadog am eu cyfraniad hael o £5,000 tuag at y clwb. Bydd yr arian yn cael ei ddefnyddio i ddau berwyl. ,br> Yn gyntaf bydd hanner yr arian yn mynd i ddatblygu ramp pwrpasol yn Eisteddle Dafydd Wyn ar gyfer defnydd rhai mewn cadair olwyn. Tra bydd y gweddill yn mynd at gostau y clwb yn sgil y llifogydd mis diwethaf.
Mae swyddogion y clwb yn edrych ar sawl prosiect posib i drio arbed y clwb rhag llifogydd yn y dyfodol.
Gobeithio y cawn well hwyl na Brenin Canute ar y gwaith!

Club officials would like to thank Porthmadog Town Council for their generous contribution of £5,000 towards the club. The money will be used in two ways.
Firstly, half will be used towards erecting a purpose made ramp for use by wheelchair users who have been allocated a specific area in the Dafydd Wyn Stand. The rest will be used to alleviate the problems raised by last month's floods.
Officials are working on several projects to try and future proof the facilities against further floods.

Cyfraniad gwych Ceri James / The club salutes Ceri James

Bydd penderfyniad Ceri yn gadael enfawr o dwll ar y Traeth (na dim y math yna o dwll!). Mae ei gysylltiad gyda Port yn ymestyn yn ôl at dymor 2009/10 pan ddaeth Tomi Morgan â fo i’r clwb i chwarae yn Uwch Gynghrair Cymeu_
Wedyn. yn dilyn cyfnod llwyddianus gyda Melville United yn Seland Newydd, dychwelodd i’r Traeth gan dreulio 8 tymor arall yma. Yn ystod y cyfnod chwaraeoedd 183(+35) o gêmau i’r clwb.
Ym mhob ystyr o’r gair roedd yn ‘ddyn mawr’ ond yn sicr synnodd llawer gwrthwynebydd gyda’i gyffyrddiadau medrus a’i rheolaeth sicr. Bob amser roedd yn bresenoldeb pwyllog, ac yn arweinydd gyda’r ddawn i reoli canol cae ar ei ben ei hun. Gallai newid cwrs gêm, a gwnaeth hyn yn aml wrth ddod ymlaen o’r fainc. Meistr y bas drwodd i’r blaenwyr, gallai agor amddiffyn gydag un pêl gelfydd. Roedd ei feddwl chwim a’i allu i ddarllen y gêm yn gwneud cyflymder dros y cae braidd yn ddibwys.
Yn y tymhorau diweddar chwaraeodd yn aml yng nghanol yr amddiffyn a gwelwyd yr un dylanwad a phresenoldeb bwyllog, bob amser yn defnyddio’i brofiad er lles y tîm.
Jocyr oddi ar y cae ond arno bob amser o ddifri go-iawn
Mae’r ymateb a welwyd ar y cyfryngau cymdeithasol yn dilyn penderfyniad Ceri yn dweud y cyfan; ymateb wrth ei gyd chwaraewyr, y gwrthwynebwyr,y cefnogwyr neu ddilynwyr cyffredunol y bêl gron yn adlewyrchu y parch sydd iddo, ac yn amlwg i bawb.
Diolch Ceri am rhoi o dy dalent wythnos ar ôl wythnos, tybed pryd eto gwelwn ei debyg ar Y Traeth.

Ceri’s decision will leave a huge void at the Traeth His connection with the club stretches back to season 2009/10 when he first appeared for the club in the Welsh Premier under Tomi Morgan.
A successful time followed with Melville United in New Zealand before returning to the Traeth and playing a further 8 seasons here. Over those years he made a total of 183 (+35) appearances.
Although a ‘big man’ in every sense of the word, he probably surprised and caught out many with his deft touches and close control.Always a calm, commanding presence, he could run a midfield single handed and could change the course of a game as he often did when coming on from the bench. A master of the through ball, he could open up an opposition with a single defence splitting pass. His speed of thought and reading of a game meant that speed over the ground was rarely an issue
In recent seasons he often played at centre back and the same calm presence and influence was apparent, always using his great experience to serve the club superbly well. Off the field a joker but on it seriously serious.
The response on social media to Ceri’s announcement tells us everything whether from teamates, opponents, supporters or football fans in general, the respect in which he is held within the game is clear for all to see.
Thanks Ceri for giving of your huge talent week in week out, when shall we see the like of this great entertainer again at the Traeth

Ceri James yn galw digon / Ceri James calls it a day

Wedi cyfnod hir o wasanaeth gwych i CPD Porthmadog mae Ceri James wedi penderfynu galw digon ar yrfa arbennig mewn pêl-droed.
Isod gwelir datganiad Ceri yn cyhoeddi ei benderfyniad

Ceri James has today announced his decision to call it a day on an outstanding career in football. Sad news but the Traeth faithful will be more than grateful that he decided to spend so many of those years at the Traeth.
Ceri has released this statement :

“It's been a very difficult decision to say its time to leave Porthmadog! It's very difficult to leave such a set up and club but I can not commit as much as a club like this deserves or an old man with a huge beer belly needs to either! “The past 10-11 years has been a real joy and privilege to be part of, and wish I could have done more or had the chance to get Port back to where they should be, but time continues without a thought!
“Thanks to all the club members who are brilliant at what they do, thanks to Tomi Morgan for bringing me here, thanks to Gareth Parry, and thanks to Paps for sticking with an overweight midfielder turned cb ( at least he was fatter than me) and big thanks to all the players for carrying me!
“And the final and most important thanks to the supporters who home or away turn up, and only expect you to try your best, to which I hope I didn't disappoint them”

Diolch Jamo

P. S thank god I won't have to hear Hywel shouting at me again ????

Diolch Ceri a phob lwc at y dyfodol / Thanks Ceri and best wishes for the future

In the item below Craig shows his appreciation of Ceri’s wonderful contribution.

Diolch Ceri / Thanks Ceri

Isod gweler ymateb Craig Papirnyk i benderfyniad Ceri i orffen ei yrfa ar Y Traeth.

Below is Craig Papirnyk’s response to Ceri’s decision to bring his career at the Traeth to an end.

Ceri has made the difficult decision and decided now is the time to leave Port. He has been a stalwart at the club for over 10 years and has always given 100% to the cause from day one.
But with the season not commencing and with age, and other commitments taking priority in his life, I completely understand his reasoning but I am still saddened by his announcement, his personality around the changing room will be sorely missed.
I first became a team mate with Ceri here at Port, I then became his manager and that in itself took some getting used to with his character ! But now I call him a close friend and one I will always have so for him to leave will be difficult to get used to, Jamo has helped me massively with management, giving me advice from a players point of view over the years we have worked together and I am sure I will still pick up the phone in the future and seek his advice.
He has been and remains an exceptional talent on the field and one of the best I’ve ever played with and managed. I’m sure everyone who knows him would agree with me given his size ! Ha ha but above all this however, he is truly a great person.
Jamo I wish nothing but success for you and yours in what comes next in your career or in life itself, we will all miss you around the Traeth and I hope you won’t be a stranger.

Cheers for Everything ‘big boy’

Canslo’r Tymor / The cancellation of the season

Yn dilyn cyhoeddiad Y Gymdeithas Bêl-droed fod tymor Yr Ardal League North wedi’i ganslo mae rheolwr Craig Papirnyk wedi rhyddau’r datganiad isod:

Following the FAW’s announcement that the Ardal Leagues’ season has been cancelled, manager Craig Papirnyk has reeleased the following statement:

“It was extremely disappointing getting news last week that the 20/21 season was to be cancelled, we are living in unprecedented times, a pandemic that has affected the nation in so many ways and now has taken away our football for the year.
“Selfishly, it is a difficult one to understand as the hope that tiers 1 and 2 might resume leaves a question to wonder, why we couldn’t as well, but at least we know now and can put to bed any hope that we may have had.
“Plans now turn to next season and rebuilding and focusing on preparing a squad that can go on to win the league and get the club promoted back to Tier 2.
“I would like to thank everyone involved with the club, for continuing to support us during these difficult times and I hope you all remain safe and before long we will all be back watching the football at the Traeth.”

Paul Pritch yn mynd ar fenthyg / Keeper goes on loan

Paul Pritchard Gyda tymor Port dod I ben heb yr un gic mae Paul Pritchard, golwr a chapten y clwb, yn ymuno â Llangefni am weddill y tymor hwn.
Os bydd y sefyllfa COVID-19 yn gwella mae gan y clwb o’r Cymru North dal obeithion I chwarae tymor wedi’I gwtogi I 15 gêm.
Wrth siarad gyda gwefan ‘Chwaraeon y Gogs’ dywedodd Paul, “Mae’n siomedig iawn fod tymor Porthmadog wedi’i ganslo sy’n golygu na fyddaf yn chwarae iddynt y tymor hwn. Medrai ddim diolch digon i Craig Papirnyk am adael imi ymuno â Llangefni a weddill y tymor.
Mae Craig a phawb yn y clwb yn dymuno’n dda i Paul ac yn edrych ymlaen i’w gael yn ôl y tymor nesa’ 2021/22


With the Port season abandoned without a ball being kicked, keeper and skipper Paul Pritchard will join Anglesey club Llangefni on loan for the remainder of the season.
The Cymru North club retain the hope of playing a reduced 15-game season should the COVID-19 situation improve.
Paul told Grassroots North Wales, “It is really disappointing that Porthmadog’s season is cancelled which means that I won’t be playing for them this season. I can’t thank Craig Papirnyk enough for allowing me to join Llangefni for the remainder of the season.”
Craig and all at the club wish Paul all the best from the club and we look forward to having him back for the 21/22 season.

Y diweddara’ ar ôl y llifogydd / Latest following the recent flooding.

Mae y dwr wedi cilio bellach ac mae llawer o'r gwaith clirio a glanhau wedi ei gwblhau. Er hynny mae llawer dal i'w wneud. Yn bennaf mae gwaith atgyweirio yn y clwb cymdeithasol gan gynnwys atgyweirio sgyrtins a edrych os oes unrhyw niwed wedi ei wneud i’r llwyfan. Mae yr hen garped gwlyb a brwnt wedi ei dynnu i fyny ac mae prisiau am un newydd yn cael eu casglu. Mae difrod i loriau yr ystafell cymorth cyntaf a toiledau cefnogwyr hefyd yn cael ei prisio.
Mae’r cyfarwyddwyr yn ymwybodol bod hyn am fod yn broblem gynyddol i’r clwb yn sgil newid hinsawdd ac felly maent yn edrych yn fwy hir dymor yn ogystal. Mae gwaith yn mynd rhagddo i brisio amddiffynfeydd i ddrysau y clwb cymdeithasol a’r ystafelloedd newid, codi lefel y llawr yn y sied tractors a sawl prosiect arall. Mae y clwb hefyd yn datblygu ceisiadau am grantiau ariannol i helpu gyda’r gwaith gan UEFA, Cyngor Chwaraeon Cymru ac eraill yn y gobaith y gall y gwaith gael ei gwblhau cyn dechrau tymor 2021/22.
Hoffai y clwb ddiolch o galon i bob un sydd wedi cefnogi y clwb yn ariannol neu yn ymarferol yn ystod y cyfnod anodd yma, ac edrychwn ymlaen yn eiddgar i gael gemau i lawr yn y Traeth tymor nesaf.

The water has receded and much of the clearing and cleaning work has been completed. Despite this much remains to be done. Most urgently, much needs to be done in the social club including replacing skirtings and surveying whether any damage was done to the stage. The old wet and mucky carpet has been raised and prices for a replacement are being sought. Prices are also being obtained for replacement flooring for the first aid room and spectator toilets.
The Directors are keenly aware that this will be an ongoing problem for the club in the years to come in light of dramatic climate change and therefore are looking at the longer term. They have identified a number of improvements that will alleviate future flooding, these include flood defences for doors throughout the stadium, raising the floor in the tractor shed etc. Prices are being obtained for these projects. The club is also putting together applications for grant aid to assist with these developments to UEFA, Sports Council of Wales and others in the hope that all work will be completed by the start of the 2021/22 season.
The Directors would also like to take this opportunity to thank all individuals and organisations who have supported the club financially or otherwise over the past few weeks. Following yesterday’s announcement we look forward eagerly to the start of next season and hope to have put the past desperate months behind us and can concentrate on enjoying the football at the Traeth once again.

Dim Ardal North yn 2020/21/ No Ardal North League in 2020/21

CBDC / FAW Mae’r Gymdeithas Bêl-droed wedi rhyddau y datganiad fod Bwrdd y Gynghrair Genedlaethol wedi penderfynu “dylai’r cystadlaethau canlynol ar gyfer 2020/21 gael eu canslo
Ardal Leagues
Cynghrair Datblygol y Cymru Premier
Cynghrair Ail-dimau CBDC
Cynghrair Ieuenctid CBDC”
Daw’r newyddion yma a diwedd i unrhyw obeithion gwantan o weld gêmau yn yr Ardal North yn ystod 2020/21
Er nad oedd y penderfyniad yn annisgwyl mae’n dal yn siom enfawr i’r Bwrdd, y Rheolwyr, Chwaraewyr a Chefnogwyr.
Yn dilyn siomiant y tymor diwetha’ roedd pawb wedi edrych ymlaen at geisio sicrhau adennill ein lle yn yr ail haen. Bellach ni fydd hyn yn bosib a rhaid cynllunio ar gyfer tymor 2020/21.

The FAW has released the following statement that “the National League Board has decided that the following league competitions should be cancelled for the 2020/21 season:
Ardal Leagues
Cymru Premier Development League
FAW Reserve League
FAW Youth League “
This brings to an end any lingering hope that we would see some Ardal North football in the 2020/21 season, however depleted that season might be.
Though the decision was not unexpected. it remains a huge disappointment for the Board, Management, Players and Supporters.
Following last season’s performances, all had been looking forward to making a tilt at a quick return to Tier 2.That now will not be possible and planning will now have to turn to the 2021/22 season.

MEIRION & IAN

Ian Foulkes Mae’n dda clywed newyddion gwell am ddau o hoelion wyth y clwb, sef MEIRION PARRY ac IAN FOULKES.

Bu Meirion yn ysgrifennydd gêmau’r clwb am nifer fawr o flynyddoedd a hefyd mewn gofal y cit, tra Ian sy’n galw’r Bingo ac yn cyflawni cant a mil o ddyletswyddau diwrnod gêm.
Pob dymuniad da i’r ddau.

Meirion Parry We are glad to receive better news concerning two club stalwarts, MEIRION PARRY and IAN FOULKES.
Both have had to spend time in hospital recently but it was good to learn that Meirion has now returned home and that Ian has been transferred closer to home, to Ysbyty Alltwen, Tremadog.
For many years, Meirion was the club match secretary, also serving as kitman, while Ian is the Bingo caller in addition to performing a host of match day duties.
We wish both well.

Bydd unrhyw gyfraniad bach a mawr yn help anferthol i’r clwb fedru arianu’r gwaith atgyweiro.
Hoffai Cyfarwyddwyr a‘r Gwirfoddolwyr ddiolch o flaen llaw am bob cyfraniad a neges o gefnogaeth.

We have therefore launched a JUST GIVING page to raise money to help fund all the work needed to clean up and repair the damage caused.

Tîm Gorau Port? / All-time CPD Porthmadog XI

Ar eu wefan chwaraeon ardderchog ‘Chwaraeon y Gogs’, achosodd Dave Jones gynnwrf ymysg cefnogwyr Port wrth iddo ddewis yr XI gorau erioed CPD Porthmadog.
Dyma’r ddewis a hynny o gyfnod weddol fodern.

Richard Harvey, John Gwynfor, Mike Foster, Rhys Roberts, Ryan Davies, Jay Gibbs, Gareth Jones Evans, Nigel Barry, Gareth Parry, Nigel Smith Paul Roberts.
Byddai’n dipyn o dîm, gyda digon o dalent i fod yn gystadleuol ar lefel uchel.
Ond yr eiliad yr ymddangosodd yr enwau y rhai na gynhwyswyd yn y rhestr oedd yn denu’r sylw. Y lleisiau yn gofyn beth am Marc Lloyd Williams neu Aled Owen, Dave Taylor, Geraint ‘Siops’ Jones, Steve Pugh, Colin Saynor, Steve ‘Psycho’ Smith, Chris Banks neu Lee Webber? Ac ymlaen a mlaen aiff yr enwau ar hyd lwybrau Aberstalwm.
Diolch am fwrw golwg yn ôl dros ysgwydd amser Dave, gan ein hatgoffa o’r talentau a gawsom ei gwylio ar Y Traeth.
Yn y darn cynhwyswyd hefyd tîm a ddewiswyd gan y cefnogwr brwd, Treflyn Jones yn ôl yn 2016. Yma, cynhwyswyd chwaraewyr hefyd o gyfnod cynt. Dyma ni:
Gareth Hughes, Haydn Jones, Mike Foster, Aled Owen, Mel Charles, Roly Evans, Jimmy McCarthy, Gwyn Williams, Colin Gwinneth, J O Williams, Steve Wooddin Subs: Adrian Jones (Twm), Ifor Pritchard (GK), Pat Laverty.
Y gair olaf i Dave ei hun, “Y cyfan lawr i farn bersonol, neb yn iawn a neb yn anghywir.”

Dave Jones has caused something of a stir amongst Port supporters after naming his ‘All-time CPD PORTHMADOG XI’ on his excellent Grassroots North Wales Sports Website.
Here is his selection which he describes as ‘modern-day’ in time-scale.

Richard Harvey, John Gwynfor, Mike Foster, Rhys Roberts, Ryan Davies, Jay Gibbs, Gareth Jones Evans, Nigel Barry, Gareth Parry, Nigel Smith Paul Roberts.
That would be some team and certainly capable of holding its own at a high level.
But of course as soon as the names appeared on the website, the omitted names were springing readily to mind. What about Marc Lloyd Williams, Aled Owen, Dave Taylor, Geraint ‘Siops’ Jones, Steve Pugh, Colin Saynor, Lee Webber and on and on goes the nostagia trip. Thanks Dave for reminding us of the wealth of talent that has graced the Traeth over the years.
Dave Jones also included a team chosen by Port supporter Treflyn Jones (in 2016) which includes stars of an earlier vintage. Here it is:
Gareth Hughes, Haydn Jones, Mike Foster, Aled Owen, Mel Charles, Roly Evans, Jimmy McCarthy, Gwyn Williams, Colin Gwinneth, J O Williams, Steve Wooddin Subs: Adrian Jones (Twm), Ifor Pritchard (GK), Pat Laverty
Last word to Dave himself, “All about opinions, none right, none wrong.”
