Port v Cegydfa / Guilsfield - 08/03/03

Warm welcome to you all to Y Traeth for yet another Cymru Alliance game. Our opponents today are Guilsfield and we extend a warm welcome to them.

Last Saturday's performance was particularly pleasing especially when one takes the conditions into account. From all accounts Airbus had fancied their chances of being the first side to beat us this season, but after the match their manager was full of praise for our performance. That is always nice to hear from an opposing manager. The only disappointment on the day was the poor crowd, no doubt the weather was a major contributory factor to the low crowd, let's hope for many more this afternoon. Chances to see the team at home are fast running out with only two League games left at Y Traeth.

This week I would like to take the opportunity to focus on the other two teams being run by the club. The Reserves have moved up a League and have done really well to be in fourth place. While the Thirds have also done well, many of their players are tasting their first season in senior football and will get better with a little experience. The Thirds have managed to feed a few youngsters through to the Reserves; a player like Dylan Jones has done well when given their chance with the Reserves. A few of these young players have trained with us during the season and have shown up well. Developing young local talent is an important area for the club. If we are in the Welsh Premier next season the club will need to push ahead with it's plans for an Academy and this will again give an opportunity to the best young players in the area. The nurturing of local players is seen as vital by many clubs these days. For example Bangor City have more what could be termed local players playing for them this season than possibly ever before. The signs are there that more young hopefuls are coming through the ranks and that this will benefit the senior side in years to come. The work done by the management of the Reserves and Thirds is to be applauded.

Finally may I take this opportunity to say how sad it is to see the difficulties experienced once again by Cemaes Bay. Their manager Nigel Roberts resigned last Saturday citing a lack of support from the club. That is one thing I and Osian could never complain about. To be fair Cemaes have lost two influential Chairmen in recent times and need some time to consolidate before once again becoming a force.
