IWAN WILLIAMS: PORT COULDN’T COPE AT TIMES
Caernarfon played in front of a booster crowd yesterday as they beat Porthmadog 2-0, manager Iwan Williams spoke after the match.
Caernarfon were the victors yesterday in a 2-0 victory over Porthmadog, with Jamie Breese and Danny Brookwell on the score sheet.
A double over Porthmadog for the season means that Caernarfon now have the bragging rights for the season over the Gwynedd rivals.
“Yes I’m happy to have once again done the double but take nothing away from Port, they made us work hard for our victory.”
There was a crowd of 1247 at The Oval yesterday, the highest of the division yesterday and a key factor to the Huws Gray Alliance total, Williams credited both sets of fans for what was an enjoyable fixture.
“It was a great crowd and the atmosphere was special. Caernarfon is renowned for its following but you have to give credit to Port also as they turned out in numbers. We just need to continue giving our supporters something to smile about as the result did yesterday.”
Earlier in the week Iwan spoke about giving a reaction, on the performance yesterday
“My team talk before the game was based around the word reaction. Regardless of the manner of the performance I wanted work ethic and certainly got that in abundance.”
The Cofis boss saw plenty of positives from his side yesterday.
“The positives were effort, grit, determination and also our quality of football. We kept the ball really well and there were some patterns of play that were up there as the best since I’ve been in charge. Port came and played with a diamond midfield, so when we switched the play they couldn’t cope at times.”
It was counter attacking football at its finest for Danny Brookwell’s goal, Williams says that Brookwell’s ability as a player helps influence their tactics.
“We’ve always spoken about Danny Brookwell’s pace and power and we try and utilise it as much as we can. He’s grown so much in the sense of influence since joining us and will continue to improve so you can say it’s down to his determination as well as our tactical plans.”
Caernarfon now turn their attentions to the Huws Gray Alliance Cup with their Round Two tie with Denbigh Town. \
