Tomi Morgan, one the Welsh Premier League’s characters is the latest to be inducted into the Hall of fame.
Tomi has been involved in the league since it’s inaugural season when he was a prolific striker with Aberystwyth Town before moving to Llansantffraid where he was part of the Welsh Cup winning side of 1996.
He scored 72 goals in 135 matches but after hanging up his scoring boots Tomi started on a managerial career which would take him on a pilgrimage around Wales.
Carmarthen Town, Rhaeadr, Welshpool and Porthmadog have all had the privilege of Tomi’s team talks but the urge to play was too much and when managing at Y Traeth he came to the field as a 53 year old substitute making him the league’s oldest player!
After leaving Porthmadog he returned to Richmond Park before his Welsh Premier League career came full circle in March 2012 as he returned to Park Avenue and Aberystwyth Town.
On this day in 1992, Wales were beaten 5-1 in the opening game of their 1994 World Cup qualifying campaign.
