The aim of AFC Porth is to provide organized football to the highest possible standard for all sections of the club, whilst promoting sportsmanship and teamwork.
It goes without saying that a football club does not run itself and whilst the management team and players are, to the public the most visible club representatives, there are a number of people working away behind the scenes to ensure that the club functions in the best possible way to achieve their aims.

THE MAKING OF AFC. PORTH “THE BLACK DRAGONS”
AFC Porth are the latest in a number of sides to have represented the town of Porth, situated at the junction of the Rhondda Fawr and Rhondda Fach valleys, and a hot bed for the game of association football for 100 years. In the 1902-03 season, Porth, under that name, entered into the newly formed South Wales League, together with nine other teams, covering a wide geographical area for those days of difficult travelling conditions. Porth failed to make any impact of note, but remained in the league till the end of the 1911-12 season.
