Port v Brymbo - 28/04/01

Once again a warm welcome to you all down to Y Traeth, special welcome to the players and officials of Brymbo Broughton FC. It is of course only seven days since the two teams last met and unfortunately once again we failed to finish the game with eleven men on the field, that is now the second time in a row for that to occur. However sometimes it is in adversity that you really see what your players can do and certainly we have seen the fighting spirit, commitment and a will to win from the squad in the last two matches where we have played 129 minutes out of 180 minutes of the two games with only 10 men.

Today's View from the Bench was penned prior to Wednesday evening's game at Brymbo so if we ignore the outcome of that game for a moment we have only been beaten once during 2001, that is fourteen games and only one defeat, that is a record to be proud of. I have been pleased to hear nice things said about the team from quite a few people and I am proud that this has been achieved with a team which is extremely young, a number of which are in their early twenties or even younger. That has possibly been the difference between ourselves and Caernarfon this season. They have a slightly more experienced set of players, players who know how to win games, especially big games. It is interesting to note that we have 8 defeats this season, no team can realistically win the league having lost that many games, but with four of those defeats coming at the hands of the top two it shows that it is in the big games against the best teams that we need to improve. If we are to be successful next season then we need to pick up points against our rivals at the top of the table.
Caernarfon now seem to have the title in their grasp and to be fair they have been the best team; the league table does not lie. They have scored a lot of goals and have used the experience in their ranks. If they do go up I wish them well next season.
Talking of next season now is the time to start planning for next term. I am keen to re-sign the current squad of players. There is a lot of potential there. I am always on the look out to add more quality to the side, whether that will prove possible only time will tell. I have a lot of faith in the players I have currently signed and let's hope that we can end the season on an optimistic note and it would be nice to secure that third spot in the League. Thanks for your continued support.
