Saturday 22nd July was the 4th and final round of the Welsh U11, U13 & U15 Junior League West Division at Brecon. Despite a very depleted team due to holiday in terms of overall numbers, they still managed to win the match and retain their West Division League title! Our thanks to all those athletes who traveled to Brecon to support their club, all of whom did several events each in an attempt to cover as many events as possible. The team now travel to Newport to compete in the Welsh league Cup Final on Sunday 6th August where they will be up against the top teams from this league and the East Division to decide who will become overall Welsh League Champions.

Fulfilled potential: Sunday 23rd July was the Youth Development U17 & U20 League South West UK Upper Age Group Promotion Match at Newport, to decide which three teams would go into the Premier Division next season. The day was a mix of euphoria and frustration. The team was magnificent having a comfortable win and showing what a great team they are in terms of numbers as well as talent, however it was also frustrating as if they’d turned out like this all season they would have been challenging for a place in the UK main final not a relegation battle!
