A VERY VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF TAFFS WELL FC

A VERY VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF TAFFS WELL FC The club was formed at a meeting of interested people at St Maryâ??s Church Hall, Glan y Llyn in the summer of 1946. Foremost at the meeting were Bill Newman, Elan Gough and John Morley, all three are sadly no longer with us. Two teams were formed and entered into the Cardiff and District League. The Gwaelod y Garth cricket ground "The Ynys", along side the river provided the clubs first home. This ground was not ideal and in their second year they opened negotiations with Dai Parry, a local Rhiw Dda'r farmer, who provided them with a field. The dressing rooms were in St Mary's church hall, Glan y Llyn. During the inaugural year a successful application was made to join the newly formed South Wales Amateur League. a league to which we have proudly been a member for over 60 years. The club soon achieved success and between 1949 and 1956 were runners-up four times and champions twice. They won the old Corinthian Cup in 1954 and were finalists in 1951 and 1953. In 1947 the club an application to join the Welsh League failed. In those days the pyramid system did not exist. In 1956 Bill Newman the driving force behind the club died which led to a decline in fortunes of the club At rock bottom in 1960 Don James joined the club as secretary. Due to his determination it took only two years to turn the club around and with the help of many people, too numerous to mention regained it's standing in the Amateur League. Success followed and the club won the championship in 1975.1976 and 1977 having been runners up in 1972, 1973 and 1974, they also won the South Wales Intermediate cup in 1975 and 1977. The club entered the Welsh League in 1977. The hard working Malcolm Frazer joined the club in 1977 becoming the Amateur League secretary and his sister Norma Samuel became the Welsh League Secretary in 1996.
