Pat O'Hagan
A dejected Pat O'Hagan in the UEFA Cup against Celtic at Ninian Park.

GOALKEEPER Pat O'Hagan is mainly remembered for his 278 league appearances with the gloves for Cwmbran Town, Inter Cardiff, Briton Ferry and Llanelli.
He also spent some time at Slough Town, gaining a reputation for hot-headed and rash judgement, but recovered his composure and it wasn't long before he was making the fans eat their words as he turned out in goal for the Crows in Europe.
However, he was able to avoid conceding 10 goals over 180 minutes of football when Cwmbran lost to Celtic in the 1999/2000 Uefa Cup.
Beaten six times in the first leg at Ninian Park, the stopper hurt an elbow in training before the return at Parkhead, although not too badly because he was named as a substitute!
On release from Cardiff City he joined Cwmbran in their inaugural LoW season, making 19 appearances as they went on to lift the title.
After one season split between Inter and Ferry, he returned in 1996/7 and was virtually ever-present in Tony Willcox's side, apart from a spell as Number Two to Gary Wager and a brief flirtation with Llanelli, where he was injured in his first and only game for the Stebonheath Park outfit.
O'Hagan scored once in his league career - direct from a goal kick in a 1-1 draw between Cwmbran and Bangor City in September 1999!
In all, he made 245 appearances for the club over a 10-year period, bettered only by defender Jimmy Blackie.
