Port v Rhydymwyn - 12/09/98

Today we must put behind us the disappointing display on Wednesday night against Mostyn when without doubt we dropped two vital home points. The only real plus points on Wednesday were that we maintained our unbeaten start to the season and avoided any more injuries to add to our long list. Many people have asked me why we struggled for form on Wednesday after the previous weeks fine away performance at Glantraeth. A combination of factors is the true reason, remember nobody sets out to have a poor match, but it happens. The ridiculous Saturday off because Wales were playing in an evening kick-off at Anfield naturally disrupts rhythm and this season at Port we have a very young side (apologies to Aled Owen and Chris Barlow) who sometimes are a bit inconsistent in their performances, a lot of football is about confidence and consistency and that will come with time. Believe it or not some of our youngsters are trying too hard not to make a mistake as they try to consolidate their places in the team, maybe I will have to try harder to relax them before today's important match against the reigning Champions Rhydymwyn who are managed by an old pal of mine Ken Knowles. A measure of how we are progressing will be made today against what promises to be stern opposition.

Since I have been at Y Traeth there always seems to be some issue to moan about, at the moment it's the admission price, well folks it's nothing to do with me or the canteen ladies, so please take your complaints elsewhere. It's hard enough concentrating on the football without that particular distraction.

On Wednesday night the dugout was full of players who are recovering from injury, Nigel Barry who starts training after his operation next week, Colin Saynor and Geraint Jones, James Parry and Steve Humphreys who hopes to make his debut in today's match, so when we get that little lot fit we will really have competition for places. Another young player who was missing on Wednesday night was Christian Jarvis who was attending a job interview but will hopefully be available for selection today.

The easy job when you are writing these notes is to make excuses, but that's not for me, I like to display a positive outlook and look for plus points, at Y Traeth this season we have a young and I believe exciting side, all the players are lit and want to play for the club and establish themselves as first team regulars, what they need is good support behind them and I believe that we have the best supporters in the Cymru Alliance and the best pitch and stadium and definitely the best canteen in Wales (with lovely staff!).

Next week John Williams starts with the Reserves, I wish him all the best as he finally lays the past to rest and gets the youth of Porthmadog working with the club.
Well here's hoping for a good performance today and three points. Thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy the match.
