23 Club NEWSLETTER No 7

Dec 17 2018 23 Club NEWSLETTER No 7

1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION
The seventh round of the competition – Llandovery v Bargoed – saw two winners. The first try by hooker Marc Jones (2) got Rob Salt £50 and the last try was scored by lock Morgan Jones (5) who earned Robin Barlow another £50. The next round is at the Llandovery v Bedwas game on Jan 12 2019
2) END OF SEASON 23 CLUB GALA DINNER
The date of the all inclusive black tie dinner is Friday 10 May 2019. Please mark it in your diary.
Euros Evans, Simon Davies and Gareth Potter will be guests and have agreed to do a 45 minute Questions and Answers session for 23 Club members and guests.
Non 23 Club members will be able to purchase tickets for the dinner at £50 a head (to include 3 course meal, all wines and beers)

3) 10% DISCOUNT

West End Cafe continues to offer all 23 Club members a discount of 10% on food and
beverage purchased at the cafe. Claim your 10% on production of your membership card.

4) TICKET ALLOCATION

Most members used their free ticket allocation for one of the Autumn internationals.
Those who have not yet taken up their allocation and wishing to go to either Wales v England
or Wales v Ireland should get in touch with Gina immediately

5) ODDS
Bookmakers gave Bargoed a + 28 handicap start on Saturday but the Drovers won by only 11 points in the difficult conditions so those who backed Llandovery to beat the handicap had a bad day.

Bookmakers Paddy Power, Betfair Sportsbook, Skybet and Bet 365 are all now offering both match and handicap odds on Principality games.
