Port v Caergybi / Holyhead - 25/08/98

After the trials and tribulations of our long battle with the Football Association of Wales over the relegation gation issue, Saturday 22nd of August finally arrived with us kicking off in the Cymru Alliance. Short of seven senior players through injury or suspension and faced with a tough test against Cefn Druids a team who led the table for much of last season our mixture of young and experienced players battled well with many players playing in strange positions because of our injuries. Despite defending deeply we managed to create some chances but lady luck denied us a goal, with both goalkeepers doing well and some pretty dramatic defending by both teams a goaless draw was a satisfactory outcome. The strength of the opposition will dispel some supporters view that you just need to turn up to pick up the points. If we are to achieve anything this season we must show the same commitment as Saturday and improve the squad as the season goes along.

Tonight's visitors Holyhead Hotspurs will be no pushovers, they are on a three season roll, winning three successive league titles. On Saturday in their Cymru Alliance debut they beat current champions Rhydymwyn 2-1 at the new Oval. Remember last season they didn't lose a league game. How I wish we had the full squad to select from tonight, but Lady Luck never seems to smile at the right time down Porthmadog way, but hopefully that will change don't they say what goes around comes around.

Saturday night after a few pints I went to bed only to wake up sweating when my dream turned into a nightmare, I dreamt that the canteen at Y Traeth was closed down as an economy measure, life didn't seem worth living anymore, how could we survive at Y Traeth without the canteen the hub, the centre of match days, hot drinks, chips, but most importantly people who care about the team in all weathers and no matter what the result keep a smile on their faces and keep encouraging. (Please stock chewing gum). Assured that it was just a bad dream I returned to sleep to dream of a good performance tonight and three points.

Paul Osahan as you know has joined the dub in a full-time capacity, this is the way forward for Port, hopefully now all the local talent will be harnessed to pull in one direction and eventually form a conveyor belt of talent for the future. As previous programmes have outlined the future looks bright, but supporters are only interested in the present and rightly so, too many times in football promises of brighter futures are not forthcoming so we will be doing our best to earn results and improving the football side of the club after all that's what its all about, good football on the pitch. Here's hoping you enjoy tonight's match and thanks for your support.
