History – Programmes

Llandovery special programmes list

This page gathers together Match Programmes of particular relevance to the history of Llandovery RFC.

The criteria for including programmes are:
a) any programmes prior to the creation of the National league structure in 1990/91, since such programmes were only printed on selective occasions and are all likely to be of interest to supporters
b) programmes since the 1990/91 season of particular significance

Thanks are due to Keith Faulkner, Huw S Thomas, Jeff Rees, Andrew ‘Cantona’ Jones, Marian ‘The Club’ Morgans, Wyn Williams and Caws and Geraint Williams for contributing programmes for scanning.
