Porthmadog FC was founded in 1884.
The '50s, '60s and '70s were successful decades for the club, winning the Welsh Amateur Cup in 1955/56 and 1956/57.
After loosing their amateur status, and signing Mel Charles, more success came to the Traeth. They had to wait until 1989/90 to win the Welsh Alliance, but this was enough to ensure Port's place as inaugural members of the Cymru Alliance.
In 1992, Port became inaugural members of the League of Wales.
In 1997/98, Port's time in the League of Wales came to an end and they joined the Cymru Alliance.
Now they have bounced back to Wales' top league with a stunning 19 point lead in the Alliance.
