Not a great turnout, however admit that the change of day did not help. A positive discussion took place and it was stressed that all should, and will, be encouraged to attend training as the first friendly is on 15 July. Attendance, and attitude, at training is important towards achieving success, therefore PLEASE make the effort. Thank you

Season 2016-17
Promotion to SPAR II and what does it bring? Three key players injured, one retirement, SIX Dolgellau lads potentially playing for Barmouth! It makes you wonder why you bother, what you have done to upset these lads, is it the money, is it false promises, who knows?? The disappointment must be obvious, small committee working hard and this....!!!! Withdrew the Under 16s last season for similar reasons, now the Reserves are in doubt - again, players who want a game, and play for their home town club, will be deprived!

Expectation remains that team will compete in SPAR and efforts will then be made to man the Reserves!

Team Photos 1980/81
Would any one have photos of the title and cup winning side of the early 80`s as this was a side that was full of very good players,hence the success that they had,and at a time when the club was playing at a level that was just one below the 3 senior leagues throughout Wales,and unsurprisingly,this squad of players beat a number of those senior sides in the Welsh Cup and Welsh Intermediate Cup,and of course went on to win the League title and had success in the Cup also.

Season 2015-16
Any talk on new signings, hopes for the season, etc.? Under 6 and Under 8 teams need Manager - maybe one of ex. Under 16s will coach, but then will need administrator/team manager? Anyone interested in running a Ladies team? please contact a club official.
editor
21 / 06 / 2015
Potential U16s, please note that when you reach sixteen years you are eligible to play for the Reserves/First Team, but not wilst at Barmouth, and with a likelihood of only FOUR teams in Llyn & Eifionydd, how many games does that leave you??

rest of season
It will be good to see all of you signed players really committing and helping the cause for the remainder of the season. I will appreciate all the help that you give - thank you. In the meantime we will work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that a Manager is in place as soon as practicable.

If anyone out there is interested in managing the first team next season please contact a club official ASAP. Thank you

TOO LATE - Kevin Jones re-appointed! A direct correlation between the tenure of the Editor as Manager and the increase in popularity of the previous manager!

JUNIOR SECTION
Please contact the club if you are interested in helping out with any of the junior age groups. In particular, we are desperate for help with the Under 10 and Under 16 age groups and must have a Manager(ess) for the Under 14s as a matter of urgency. Thank you
Editor
09 / 07 / 2014
PLEASE HELP! All age groups are in need of more players, but particularly the Under 10s who will not have a team without more interest before the end of this month!

NEW MANAGER
cracking news for the club, all the best to the both of them

Kevin Jones will take on the role of First Team Manager for 2014-15, ably assisted by Rob Evans, who will assume the role of Head Coach, building on the success of the Under 19s (and playing Cymru Alliance soccer in his spare time!). It is undecided how many teams and league(s); this will be based on numbers, and views of those, attending training. Kevin wishes to add these words, "I have played and watched football all my life so now have over 40 years experience of the game. I was born in the East End of London so had little choice but to follow West Ham along with my Dad and Grandad. Unlike today, with Big Fat Sam, I have seen some of the most entertaining West Ham sides of the 70s and 80s. My personal favourite would be Trevor Brooking and I enjoyed MANY spells of brilliant combination play between him, Frank Lampard Snr and Alan Devonshire. This is how I would like the game to be played BUT you have to work with the players you have available, so pass it if you can but get it forward if you have Andy Carroll up front! At Swansea University I played, and coached, a team to the University Championship, outwitting Loughborough on the way, who were a very good side. We outfought them and the winner came from a much rehearsed near post corner. The team played in what was then called the Welsh League. After Uni I played for many teams often ending up as the player-manager. I would like the team to be a mix of young and experienced players. The youngsters need experience around them but also to play without fear of failing and to enjoy the game. Having lived here for only 6 years I can be objective about everyone`s ability so all those interested are guaranteed a chance to impress. I won`t mess people around and will give you a straight answer. Pre-season training starts Wednesday 25th June at 6.30pm. Rob Evans and myself will be there and we`ll make it work."

Manager??
REGISTRATIONS & FINES - all registered players please note that you are now able to sign for another club with the exception of those of you who owe money for fines. These MUST be paid beforehand and MUST be paid before you are allowed to play this, or next, season. Thank you
Editor
02 / 01 / 2014
Don`t want to name individuals, YET, but all those cautioned or dismissed owe 10 for EACH occurrence. The players know who they are (or can check with me) and the FAW know who they are, therefore no registrations before payment. thanks
Editor
05 / 01 / 2014
REMINDER - those who have not paid fines will not be allowed to sign for ANY club next season until the club is reimbursed. A list of those owing will be added to the Forum shortly. thank you
Editor
20 / 04 / 2014
All outstanding fines to be paid BEFORE the League Cup Final on 6 May, PLEASE!

I know Nigel Evans and younger brother, but in the picture "name & shame" it`s Martin Phillips,(Felix)
Gareth Evans
15 / 12 / 2012
I stand corrected, hopefully Mr Phillips or Mr Evans will confirm. Sure both played for Cader Rovers at one time?
Editor
15 / 12 / 2012

spar midwales
how come the club does not have a link with the spar mid wales website to show all the facts and figures of the club
C. P. Jones
15 / 02 / 2012
Pleased you have raised this. Under `Documents` there are the club`s policies and website links. Should probably be re-named `Documents and Links`. Thank you.

Some History
[1930] 1930 November. Dolgellau FC beat Aberdovery 6-5 in the Cambrian Coast Amateur League. Weather was a strong factor in the result with driving rain and slippery conditions.The return fixture two weeks later saw Dolgellau beaten 10-2, with conditions again wet and slippery. Sandwiched between these games was a 2-1 defeat at Machynlleth. Dolgellau`s team then was (5-3-2); T. Parry; E Evans, H.P. Harris; R.W Parry, Archie Jones, E. Brown; H.P. Evans, I Jones, R.L. Roberts, R.G. Lewis, Joe Roberts

To prevent confusion, Phil is the contributor not one of the players! It is working with the Reserve team Manager that has aged him! Thank you Phil- will add to the History pages. Anyone any more??

just thought the photo might have been of interest for the gallery or history,but it seems that it is going to far back with DAAFC being a new formed football club

Multi purpose-All weather pitch
Seen as this was brought up in another topic,I do feel it`s high time we had one of the above in the town,It would not only benefit the Dolgellau Football but all other sporting activities in the town. Sooner or later someone is going to get hurt in that cage,some of the juniors parent`s voiced their concerns last year,I know it`s all we`ve got,now`s the time to push for something better,Blaenau,Port,Tywyn and Bala all have one. Where we start is open to suggestions??

05 / 11 / 2009
As stated under another topic, lobby the local/county Councillors! Another option is to start a fund, bearing in mind that a location will have to be identified, e.g., school hockey pitch or merely re-surfacing the cage??
Editor
05 / 11 / 2009
I think if it is to be of benefit to all it has to be a new facility as the cage is to small for adult training anyway,the hockey pitch would be an idea,I don`t think it get`s that much use???

Following a near injury to one of the Under 11s in the cage last Wednesday due to the slippery surface when damp, the incident has been reported by the club to Gwynedd County Council. No feedback to date.
Editor
13 / 11 / 2009
It probably won`t surprise you, but we were advised that if we considered the surface unsafe we shouldn`t use it!
Editor
08 / 10 / 2012
This topic is now coming up to three years old. Have any of the concerns been actioned upon or have we had any feedback from Gwynedd County Council, with current weather conditions it is gettin very close to the time where training will be moved to an alternative location to the Marian.
