How do you say "football" in Welsh?

Perhaps football is not as modern of a game as we believed. References to versions of the game have been found as early as the 10th century in Welsh literature and in the Black Book of Carmarthen, the first manuscript written in Welsh, in the 13th.

"Lowri Roberts said references to early forms of the game were made between 942 and 950AD in the Book of Taliesin, where soldiers kicked the heads of defeated soldiers. But it was not until 1575 that the term 'football' was used, added Ms Roberts."


It's "pel-droed", pronounced "pell droid" like if you wrapped C3PO in carpet and whacked him with rattan.
