How high can Bala’s Chris Venables rise in all-time Cymru Premier goalscorers list?

Bala Town’s Chris Venables is back in familiar territory as he heads the current Cymru Premier top goalscorers list in the early weeks of the 2019-20 season. The 34-year-old club captain has netted six times in as many games for the Lakesiders, who have begun their 11th successive national league campaign in impressive fashion overall, despite last Saturday’s blip at Newtown. Venables’ flying start has revived memories of unforgettable times at Aberystwyth Town, where between 2013-14 and 2015-16 he won three WPL Golden Boots in a row, netting 24, 28 and 20 goals respectively. He was also named WPL Player...

Female Focus: Maddie Williams (Llanfairfechan Ladies FC)

Full Name Maddie Roseanna Williams Date of Birth 12th January 1996 First football memory Being the only girl playing for the junior boys U7s. Football idol Common answer I can imagine but it’s got to be David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Especially when they both played for United, Beckham was the reason I supported them.

But I’ll never forget playing any game against Bethel as a junior, always tough but exciting. Biggest highlight of football...

Double knockout for the sensational Alan Blacks!

Double knockout for the sensational Alan Blacks!

On Saturday afternoon he scored twice in his team’s 4-2 win in the FAW Trophy, then in the evening stepped into the boxing ring and won by a third round knockout! Just another chapter in the amazing story of Caernarfon sportsman Alan Blacks! The all-action all-rounder, real name Alan Mark Owen, first helped Llanrug United reach the next round of the Trophy with a double strike in a 4-2 victory at Y Felinheli. Then it was a trip to Llandudno where he was to achieve a knockout of a different kind. Taking on Dan Pritchard (Gorilla MA) in the Welsh...

Magnificent seven for Bangor 1876 – but is it too early to talk about trophies?

Magnificent seven for Bangor 1876 – but is it too early to talk about trophies?

Seven matches played, seven matches won….. There is no doubting that newly-formed Bangor 1876 have made a magnificent start to the 2019-20 campaign. But already I’ve heard a handful of local football followers claim this fan-owned club will not lose a single game this season. I take it these positive-thinking people mean in the Gwynedd League, because 1876 have entered the Welsh Cup, so anyone predicting they could win that as well would be getting way ahead of themselves. Going through an entire league season unbeaten is quite rare, but it has been done a fair few times in North...
