Introduction to Dinas Powys Football Club.

 

The village of Dinas Powys is situated within the Vale of Glamorgan, four miles west of Cardiff and is regarded as providing home for professional commuters. Dinas Powys Football Club is an integral part of village life and has established a close connection for the past thirty years through our mini, junior and senior ladies section. The mini and junior section provides organised football for boys and girls through qualified coaches/managers trained to a minimum FAW Leaders level, for over 300 children from ages six to seventeen, fielding numerous teams every Saturday morning. As a responsible organisation within the community we have in conjunction with the Vale of Glamorgan, trained and appointed a Child Protection Officer whose duties will involve understanding the needs of players, parents and coaches. As part of our goal of quality and excellence in sport we have also embarked on a nationally recognised grading accreditation in excellence and are currently at Silver level. The senior section is currently made up of three teams; the youth team who play in the South Wales Youth League and are the lifeblood of the club and as so are encouraged and afforded opportunities to progress through the senior ranks. Two senior teams, who play in Welsh League Division 2 and the Welsh League Reserve East Division, respectively.

The flagship of the club, the first team, has gained unparalleled success over past years winning the first division title of The South Wales Amateur League over three consecutive seasons, a feat which has never before been achieved in the long history of that league. In 1998 the first team won the FA of Wales Carlsberg Amateur Trophy, which is a very prestigious trophy with teams from all over Wales competing. As a result of this success the club has been profiled on Channel Four Wales sports programme 'Goal', and was voted the village club of the year in Football Magazine 1998. In 2000 the club secured Welsh League status after winning a playoff, against the winner of the South Wales Senior League. This gave the club the opportunity to play in the higher profile Welsh League, and compete in the Welsh Cup against teams of the standard of Bangor City and Barry Town who have subsequently gone on to play in European Cup football. After gaining promotion from the third Division in 2002 in the runners up position, season 2003 saw the club win the second division Championship of the Welsh league at the first attempt, to take the club to the pinnacle of the Welsh league, the first division. Our first season at this level saw the first team finishing in sixth place in the first division and although the subsequent season was not so successful. In 2007-08 the Club achieved its highest ever position in Welsh Football by finishing 2nd in Division One; just a whisker away from gaining the Title. Following relegation to Welsh League Division Two in 2010, the only step back in more than ten years of progress, the club is striving to regain Division One status as soon as possible.
