Dave Taylor wedi ennill ei le yn Oriel yr Anfarwolion

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.


Dave Taylor, lwyddodd i osod Cynghrair Cymru ar y map pêl-droed Ewropeaidd, ydi'r nesaf i gael ei urddo i Oriel yr Anfarwolion.

Dechreuodd Taylor ei yrfa yng Nghynghrair Cymru gyda Chonwy, ond fe ddaeth i'r amlwg ar ôl symud i ymuno â Phorthmadog.

Tra ar Y Traeth llwyddod Taylor i ddilyn ôl traed chwaraewyr fel Eusebio, Gerd Muller a Marco van Basten fel sgoriwr goliau mwyaf toreithiog holl gynghreiriau Ewrop.

Sicrhaodd ei le yn y llyfrau hanes fel yr ail Gymro erioed, ar ôl Ian Rush, i gipio gwobr Esgid Aur cylchgrawn L'Equipe fel prif sgoriwr Ewrop ar ôl iddo rwydo 43 yn nhymor 1993/94.

Ar ôl gadael Port, chwaraeodd dros nifer o glybiau yn yr Uwch Gynghgrair ac er iddo rwydo sawl gôl arbennig, tymor euraidd 93/94 sy'n sicrhau ei le ymysg yr anfarwolion.
