Port v Conwy - 15/09/01

Warm welcome to you all to Y Traeth for this afternoon's Welsh Cup tie, especially so to the players, officials and supporters of today's opponents Conwy United. The first round of the Welsh Cup is always an exciting event and progress in the Cup is always most welcome. I have played in a Welsh Cup final in the days when the English based clubs were also involved. Personally I think the competition has lost something since these clubs were denied the opportunity to participate and that they should be allowed to return to play in the competition. However that is for the powers that be to sort out, our aim is to win today and start a run in the competition.
When considering the team's current form I was reminded of something said to me by my Golf Club President. I had remarked after a long lay off from the game that I could not get rid of my slice, he responded saying "don't worry, something will come along and replace it soon enough". The team's problem for much of last season was our lack of goals. That seems to have been cured, as we are currently the League's leading scorers. What has replaced it is that we are conceding silly goals. In the last two games our opponents have had about three shots on goal and have scored all three. That now seems to be our problem. Having said that I have to confess that I am quite happy with the way things have been going so far. We are creating chances and scoring an average of almost 4 goals a game. Goals are coming from throughout the team and we are playing some good football.
Last Tuesday saw the start of the Floodlight League. This year the competition is predominantly for players under 21 and therefore will be an ideal opportunity to develop young players. Tuesday's I-I result against Flexys Cefn Druids was fully deserved. A number of late withdrawals had somewhat weakened the team but the lads played well with numerous pluses coming from the game. The team will play again this Tuesday at Flint, I am sure Stuart and the lads will again do themselves proud.
Please do keep up your support of the team.
