The Secretary's Scribe for the Bala Town home game

Good evening and welcome to this WPL clash with Bala Town. Greetings to all those who have made the journey here tonight from the Maes Tegid outfit for what will be our first meeting in the premier league. Enjoy your brief stay with us and have a safe return journey.

This evening we welcome as guests of the club five football supporters from Germany who are fans of SV Waldhof Mannheim and have picked us as one of their games on a tour of the UK. Andy I hope you and your friends enjoy your brief stay with us and take back some good memories with you.

Bala had an excellent start to this campaign, but have tailed off recently, but got back to winning ways Tuesday last with a 2-1 victory at home to Welshpool which arrested a run of seven games without a win, while we have a run of three successive victories without conceding to our name. Last Saturday looked as if it would be one of those days, total domination after the first fifteen minutes and missing a hatful of chances, but eventually the pressure told with a helping hand from a Porthmadog defender putting through his own goal. The previous Saturday we beat Newtown here in atrocious conditions by two goals to nil. I think the score line was a little harsh on the Mid Wales team as they had plenty of play in the second half but lacked any punch in the final third.

Next weekend we travel to Neath for a Sunday fixture. We travel down on the Saturday with an overnight stop and will take in the Swansea City v Nottingham Forest game on the Saturday afternoon.

This week with had our pre licence inspection and everything is going ok towards getting the licence with off field matters so we hope we can cement our place in the top ten with on field matters. The floodlights have been checked for their lux level which has to be 500. Plenty of paperwork and accounts have to be submitted and the seating capacity has to be upped to a minimum of 500 which we do not have a present, but with a new stand to be built at the runway end of the ground the capacity will then exceed 500. On the back of this the club has been recommended to hold the Loosemore’s League Cup Final in the spring between Rhyl and The New Saints and the FAW are interested in holding a Women’s International here in 2010.

Finally it would be remiss of me not to congratulate both Ashley Williams and Ryan Edwards on representing the Wales U23 against Northern Ireland in Portadown last week, though Ryan had the misfortune of getting red carded for deliberate hand ball on the line in stopping a goal scoring opportunity and will therefore miss a trip to Portugal next year.

Enjoy the game.
