    Ep.128 – In conversation with | Mewn trafodaeth â Dave Smallman

    Back in early 2022 we put out a Patreon only epsiode in which we chatted with former Wrexham and Everton striker Dave Smallman who won seven caps for Wales.







    Dave chats about how his ascent to the Wrexham first team at the age of only 20, the club’s famous FA Cup runs and successful u23 caps helped alert Dave Bowen to his promise. But upon arriving at Wrexham General station to sign as a 16 year old, nerves almost got the better of him.







    Although he won only seven caps, Dave figured in two of the greatest wins in Wales’s history: the famous 2-1 win in Hungary’s Nep Stadium in April 1975; and the 1-0 win over Austria at The Racecourse in November that year. But Dave explains why he was the only Welsh person inside The Racecourse that night not to celebrate Arfon Griffiths’ winner which secured the only time Wales has topped a qualifying group.

    Yng nghynnar yn nôl yn 2022 fe wnaethom ni ryddhau epsiod ar Patreon yn yr hyn y wnaethom ni sgyrsio â chyn-flaenwr i Wrecsam ac Everton, Dave Smallman, a ennillod saith o gapiau i Gymru.







    Mae Dave yn sôn am sut dynnwyd sylw Dave Bowen i’w addewid wedi iddo esgyn i’r tîm cyntaf Wrecsam pan oedd yn 20 oed yn unig, o achos rhediadau enwog y clwb yn y Cwpan FA a chapiau o dan 23 oed llwyddiannus. Ond pan gyrhaeddodd y llanc 16 oed orsaf Wrecsam Gyffredinol i lofnodi i’r clwb, cafodd bron ei orau gan ei nerfau.







    Er ennillodd saith cap yn unig chwaraeodd Dave mewn dau o fuddugoliaethau mwyaf mewn hanes Cymru, y ddwy ym 1975: y fuddugoliaeth 2-1 yn Stadiwm Nep yn Hwngari; a’r fuddugoliaeth 1-0 dros Awstria yn y Cae Râs. Ond mae Dave yn egluro pan oedd e’r unig Cymro neu Gymraes tu fewn y Cae Râs y noson honno i fethu dathlu gôl ennill Arfon Griffiths a sicrheuodd am y tro unig safle ar frig grwp rhagborofol i Gymru.

The Daddy of Welsh Football podcasts

There are numerous Welsh football podcasts these days, but these boys are the pioneers, the original & still the best. If you like Welsh football & follow our national teams, is difficult to beat these podcasts, which are produced by extremely knowledgable Welsh fans of long-standing. They always stay just the accessible side of geekery!
Highly recommended!

It's all coming back to me now...

Great podcast for all things Welsh football and for those who will remember Roger Freestone is (or who are intrigued to find out!).

Back before #TogetherStronger became a hashtag, the trials and tribulations of the Welsh national football team over the years were enough to put off the even the most ardent fan. But we kept the faith - because despite the Bodin miss and other painful setbacks, we loved every minute of it (well almost!)

This podcast is a labour of love from passionate fans who clearly know their stuff about Y Dreigiau Goch. Very nostaglic, great listen!
