Dave Taylor, who put the League of Wales, as it was back then, firmly on the European football map is the latest to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Taylor started his Welsh top flight career with Conwy United but he made his mark after moving to Porthmadog.

Whilst at Y Traeth, Taylor followed in the illustrious footsteps of players like Eusebio, Gerd Muller and Marco van Basten as the top scorer in all of the European football leagues.

He ensured his place in history as only the second Welshman, after Ian Rush, to clinch French football magazine, L’Equipe’s Golden Boot after scoring 43 goals in the 1993/94 season.

After leaving Port he played for several clubs in the Welsh Premier League but despite several spectacular goals, he will always be remembered for the golden season of 93/94.
