25 Club Newletter No 9, March 8 2020

1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION

The ninth home game of the competition – Llandovery v Swansea – saw two winners. The first Llandovery try was scored by No 12 Rhodri Jones and earned HOWARD POTTER £50.

The second try, scored by full back Llew Smith won KATHRYN DAVIES a further £50.

The next round will take place on Sat March 28 when Llanelli are the visitors to Church Bank (KO 2 30 pm)

There will be a pre– match buffet with beer/wine included for all 25 Club members and a guest. This will be served between 1 00 and 2 30 pm.

*** It would very much help with catering arrangements if members could let Gina know if they and a guest will be attending
