Come on you black and whites!

Football terrace rivalries reach the Assembly chamber.

Mick Bates: I am sure that you are as proud as I am of our teams when they represent Wales in Europe. However, you will be aware that only Newtown Football Club in mid Wales reaches the European regulation standards. Are you prepared to assist football clubs such as Total Network Solutions, Llansantffraid or Aberystwyth to develop facilities that will allow them to take their place in Europe?

Alun Pugh: We all have strong personal opinions on football clubs. I know that Ann Jones has a strong opinion on the great success of Rhyl Football Club. However, it is an issue for clubs and for the FAW. As John Griffiths noted, a large amount of additional Sky money is now in the system.

Ann Jones: I congratulate Newtown Football Club for its hospitality last Monday when Rhyl won the league cup. The score was 4-0, and Andy Moran scored a hat trick. Johnny Hulse's black and white army marches on into Europe. Will you meet with FAW officials regarding looking for regional centres so that teams such as Rhyl, who successfully secured a place in Europe this year, can play their home games at home and not in other areas? They can then gain the financial benefits of home gates.
