Port v Flexys Cefn Druids - 22/08/98

This is possibly the most difficult programme notes I have ever written, the printing deadline is four days before you read this page and itís fair to say that we donít know whether we are to be recalled into the League of Wales to replace Ebbw Vale or we are starting a new campaign in the Cymru Alliance against Flexys Cefn Druids. Only last week Penrhyncoch resigned from the Cymru Alliance and Knighton were given three weeks off to put their affairs in order, Nantlie Vale have resigned from the Welsh League as have Caernarfon Reserves which means that the National League and every League In the Northern section of the pyramid system have an odd number of clubs. WHAT A MESS! Who is to blame? To that question there is only one answer, our parent body and the rulers of football in the principality, the shambolic FAW who have failed to administrate trate Welsh football properly. In our case League of Wales rules were clear, Ebbw Vale should have taken our place as a relegated club, never mind the fact that LoW clubs at the AGM voted by 18-3 to relegate only three clubs. Many lies and secret agendas have been adhered to, but as in America in the Clinton trial and as in Anglesey with the council corruption, the truth will eventually surface to the detriment of certain FAW councillors and League officials. Already a Welsh FA councillor has been removed as Secretary of Cymru Alliance and to say it was a blood- less coup would be a lie.

We at Y Traeth are above all the political manoeuvring of our peers, all we wish to do is run our football club and to that end our luck appears to be no better. Despite appointing long serving Geraint Jones as Assistant Manager and Paul Osahan as a full time Football in the Community Officer and Coach and enticing back seasoned performers such as Colin Saynor we have the worst injury list I have been confronted with in my time at Porthmadog. Today's match will see no fewer than seven senior players missing through injury and suspensions. Hardly the ideal start to a new season, but it does provide a chance for some of our younger squad members to stake a claim for a permanent spot in the team, and you never know there may be a Paul Roberts or a Marc Lloyd Williams waiting to stake his claim.

Off the field the foundations for the future are firmly laid with a vibrant Board of Directors finally eliminating past debt, a new ambitious Supporters Club, a Football in the Community scheme up and nearly running, together with ambitious plans to develop Y Traeth into a modern multi purpose stadium with fund realising capabilities and the acquisition of the old British Legion club to raise funds to give Porthmadog the team it deserves.

To our loyal supporters thank you for sticking with the club through thick and thin and enjoy this afternoon's match.
