Port v Lex - 19/01/02

A warm welcome to you all down to Y Traeth for this afternoon's League match against Lex. This will be a tricky encounter against a side who beat us 5-1 here last season. We will certainly be giving it our all this afternoon as we strive for 3 more League points.

The fixtures for February have now come to hand. As you can see from our center page spread, only two League games are scheduled for February. Including today we have a minimum of 20 matches in League and Cup to play and approximately 14 or 15 weeks to play them. In my view we need to be utilising our floodlights and playing some games in midweek. The last thing we want is to have to travel to Brymbo or Guilsfield or Ruthin for a 6.1 5pm kick off in the middle of May as we have been forced to do in the last two seasons. As of the end of February we still have not met Ruthin in the League but we are scheduled to play Lex today and again in three weeks while we have already met Llandudno and Llanfairpwll twice. The League of Wales manage to get each club to play each other in the first half of the season and then reverse the fixtures. They also produce fixtures for the season not every four weeks as the Cymru Alliance do at present. Because some clubs have not played each other once yet the League is currently misleading. Having studied the fixtures it is Ruthin's fixtures which appear particularly lopsided. They have not played Cemaes, Welshpool, Llangefni/Glantraeth or ourselves as yet. This is hardly fair on Ruthin as it will leave them with a spate of tough games later in the season. Reform of the fixtures in the Cymru Alliance is long overdue.

I have been working hard to sign a couple of new players this week. I feel the side could do with a boost. One will hopefully make his debut today while negotiations with another are continuing. It is interesting that one or two players from the Cymru Alliance are moving clubs at the moment. Danny Collins has moved from Buckley to Chester City for a rumored fee of £1,000 on a 3 year contract, while Chris Boulton has moved from Mold Alex to Bangor City for a rumored £3,000 on an 18 month contract. He has been banging in the goals in the Wrexham Area League this term. Even the smaller clubs are now tying their players to contracts and cashing in when the right offer comes along.

I was pleased with the performance of the Floodlight League team on Tuesday, a team which contained 6 18 year olds or younger. They shaped up well and most will be on view again on Tuesday night against Oswestry kick off 7.3Opm. Why not come down and have a look.
