Today, before reverting to the usual entry about the Welsh economy and Welsh politics, I am posting as a really proud Uncle after finding out that my nephew Gareth is slowly, but surely, climbing the football ladder.

According to the Caernarfon and Denbigh Herald,

"Porthmadog have boosted their squad with the signing of promising young midfielder Gareth Jones-Evans from Pwllheli.

The 18-year-old has been one of the stand out players in the Welsh Alliance League over the past couple of seasons and was outstanding in Pwllheli’s Barritt Cup final victory over Gwalchmai last May.

"Porthmadog manager Gareth Parry said of him: "He is one of the most promising young players in the area. He has trained with us for several weeks, creating an excellent impression."

A couple of years ago, Gareth came down for trials with Cardiff City but, unfortunately, didn't make the cut.

Hopefully, he will get another chance to shine soon, especially if he gets regular games for Porthmadog doe the rest of the season.

Da iawn Gareth!
