-and Iwan Roberts.
-Do you remember your first meeting?
-We became good friends
-when I moved to Watford.
-I remember playing against

-Only Aberystwyth could manage to
-blow a two goal lead in added time.
-The fans didn't react much
-to Dwayne Coultress's goal.

-after 90 minutes.
-It was a magnificent recovery
-from Carmarthen Town.
-Luke Bowen had a chance to win it.
-That's been the story for
-Aberystwyth all season.
-Can you remember something
-like that happening.
-I remember something
-..when I was at Huddersfield
-and playing Hull.
-We were behind by four goals after
-25 minutes but we fought back.
-It changed the season
-for both sides.
-Hull went from a top
-four position to being relegated.
-We climbed into the top half
-from a lowly position.
-When did the Carmarthen players

-not Toshack, Coleman or Robinson.
-He has coached with Celtic,
-Rangers and both Sheffield sides.

-Welsh set-up for a decade...

-I've made a lot of sacrifices
-along the way.
-I moved away from home at
-an early age and never moved back.
-I moved around different cities,
-clubs, environments, countries.
-I think I do pinch myself
-in some respects to where it's led.
-It felt at the time when I got the
-opportunity to take over the team...
-..it was a natural progression
-I don't know if you're ready to
-manage but it was now or never.
-For me, it's important
-that there's stability imposed...
-..within the background
-of the club and infrastructure.
-to pass my experience on...
-through the academy structure...
-..from the performance set-up
-behind the scenes.
-that will impact on the pitch.
-I'm hoping that aspect happens
-while I'm with the club.
-As a head coach, you're always
-deemed a success through results.
-You need the results
-on the pitch to stay in the job.
-Polish is the third hardest language
-in the world to learn.
-Thankfully, a lot of the players
-It makes life a lot easier.
-Do you know when they talk about you
-behind your back?
-No, but I can sense it!
-Your role in the Welsh set-up,
-explain what you've been doing.
-I've been fitness coach for eight
-years with the senior national team.
-To be involved
-with my country's national team...
-..is a fantastic thing
-for me personally.
-I'm very honoured and proud
-to do that.
-As long as I'm needed,
-I'll always be there.
-Are you hoping to stay out in Europe
-or is your ambition to come home?
-I'd be lying if I said
-I never wanted to go back...
-..but I'm really enjoying living in
-Europe, enjoying different cultures.
-It's more than just the football,
-it's more than just the job.
-I always wanted to do.
-I've done it for a time and
-it's something I'll continue doing.
-Adam, thank you.

-C picks, Pendro and Penydarren.
-Welcome back to Mwy o Sgorio.
-You are old friends.
-Here's footage of you back in 1986.
-Why did you both end up in Watford?
-It was great to have a Welsh
-speaker there already.
-There was a scout who got
-us both over there.
-His parents were offered 4000 for
-him to go to Manchester United.
-They turned it down and allowed him
-to do what he wanted to do.
-It was great to have him in
-the same second-team...
-..and then the same first team.
-Norwich City was the one
-where you settled down.
-And Malcs turned up there too!
-It's a great club.
-I wanted to help them back
-into the premiership.
-We managed to win the Championship
-in my final season and I left.
-He scored 239 goals in his career.
-Ian Rush is the only Welsh man...
-..with more goals
-in the English leagues.
-Only five players overall
-have scored more than 200.
-Time now for Pendro.
-The women are having a go tonight.
-Bethel Ladies FC's Pendro Challenge.
-That was hopeless.
-There's no other word for it.
-What a terrible kick.
-Nain could've saved that one.
-These are hopeless.
-That's still on its way to Ireland.
-Look at that one. That was special.
-That's on its way to Snowdon.
-Here is the current Pendro table.
-The girls are near the bottom.
-The Wales C Squad was announced
-earlier for a big game with England.
-Mark Jones and our very own
-Owain Tudur Jones are in charge.
-Here's what they had to say.
-90% of their team
-will be full-time professionals.
-Most probably 90%
-of our team will be part-time.
-We're representing a league
-that's on the up.
-It's Wales against England. We're
-looking forward to the contest.
-We're happy with who
-we were able to select.
-We have a team in mind,
-11 players to start against England.
-It's up to the squad players
-to work their way into our plans.
-Here is the squad.
-The Welsh squad has been chosen
-from the Welsh Premier League.
-The English will select from
-the Conference teams downwards.
-Barry have the most players.
-That game will be live
-on our Twitter Feed.
-Malcs, you've selected
-your starting eleven.
-I think this is
-quite an exciting team.
-We have some very good defenders
-in the Welsh Premier League.
-Danny Gosset is excellent
-in the holding role.
-He will release
-Chris Venables and Aeron Edwards.
-John Owen might be the
-I think he's a good player who runs
-good angles and is very powerful.
-He also has plenty of pace.
-Nathan Craig from Caernarfon
-is one player...
-..who could have challenged Danny
-Gosset in that holding position.
-It would be a big evening for
-them representing Wales.
-Putting that red shirt on
-is always special.
-Next we turn our attention to the
-quarter-finals of the Welsh Cup.
-Bangor are taking on Penydarren
-who play in the Welsh fifth tier.
-They only entered the competition
-for the first time this season.
-Well, I think it was 1985.
-There was a definite need
-in the town.
-There was nothing for the
-local children to get involved with.
-We used the church hall.
-That was the venue
-for the evenings...
-..playing table tennis,
-darts and that sort of thing.
-Then football on the weekends
-and it grew from there.
-I first started with the club
-at seven, eight years of age.
-Playing, and continued playing
-until senior football.
-Now involved with the coaching,
-via me and Andrew's children.
-My three boys and his son
-all play football for the club.
-I remember coming here at the age
-of 10, my father brought me along.
-When my son was three, four...
-..he was kicking the ball
-on the side of the pitch.
-They all keep coming back.
-You can't get rid of them.
-You think you've done your job
-when they grow up and get married.
-You lose them for a few years and
-they're back with their children.
-It's really built the community.
-Even though we're a football club...
-..it's more important
-to develop the children.
-If we can help the children
-of healthy living and fitness...
-..and looking ahead to the future,
-that's what we really want to do.
-There's a lot of bad press about
-Merthyr but a lot of positives too.
-They're attacking again.
-Colvin-Owens. He's scored again!
-They're in the lead. They're heading
-to the quarter-finals. What a story.
-I've seen things happening this year
-that I never thought I'd ever see.
-For every team they play and you
-think this is the end of the road...
-..they've been the better side
-in every game.
-They're moving up
-two divisions higher.
-And I wouldn't write off Bangor.
-We entered the Welsh Cup to
-pit ourselves against Welsh teams...
-..to see what standard we were.
-Welsh league is more important
-but when you get to this stage...
-..you want to win it.
-We watched TNS and Bangor
-to see what we're up against.
-No disrespect to the other sides
-we play, this is the elite level.
-about the fairy-tale ending.
-If we get a result against Bangor,
-we'll re-write the Mabinogion!
-It's as important
-as that to us in Wales.
-The club is incredible,
-the town is buzzing.
-I remember the old referee,
-..I used to say to Howard
-when I first did the ground...
-.."I'll make sure the width is right
-in case we draw Real Madrid."
-He laughed! He's not laughing now.
-They certainly are
-a set of characters.
-Could they do the unthinkable?
-They have a better chance
-of playing Real Madras.
-They have done very, very well.
-This is their big final.
-They haven't lost a game
-yet this season.
-They have a good habit of
-winning games this season.
-They have put Penydarren on the map.
-Swansea City are into
-the last eight of the FA Cup.
-They play West Ham in the
-league on the weekend.
-Carlos Carvalhal has been a mighty
-breath of fresh air down there.
-He's a miracle-worker.
-I thought they were goners.
-He has put a smile
-back on the faces of the fans.
-They've won their last
-six games at the Liberty Stadium.
-They have two huge games coming up
-against West Ham and Huddersfield.
-They need four points
-from those two games.
-Will Swansea stay up and are
-Cardiff City going to join them?
-They have momentum and Neil Warnock.
-He's looking for his 8th promotion.
-They are only six points
-behind Wolves now.
-You a lot of both of them.
-This will be an another
-amazing finish to the season.
-Cardiff City aren't at their best
-but they are still winning.
-They aren't conceding any goals.
-I think Swansea will survive.
-It's great to have the old
-mates back together.
-Don't forget, Bangor
-versus Penydarren is live on S4C.
-Weather permitting, we're on air
-at 2.30pm on Sunday for that game.
-We leave you with shots of Bangor
-doing what they like most...
