1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION
The ninth round of the 2022-23 competition – Llandovery v Aberavon- saw two winners. Rhodri Jones (12) scored the first try, so earning Robin Barlow £50.
There was no second try so Wyn Morgan benefits to the tune of £50
The tenth round will be the next home league game against Llanelli on Saturday March 25th

2) 10% DISCOUNT
West End Cafe continues to offer all 25 Club members a discount of 10% on food and beverage purchased at the cafe. Claim your 10% on production of your new 25 Club membership card.
The Three Horse Shoes offer a 10% discount on all restaurant meals and in house drinks – again on production of the 25 Club card.
Ozzy’s Kebab & Pizza offers 10% discount on production of the card.
3) Members will be interested to know that betting continues on both the Welsh Premiership and Championship with bookmakers DragonBet.
For the Aberavon game, the handicap was Llandovery – 10.5 so those who supported the Drovers to win by over 11 points were well out of pocket
Details can be found on dragonbet.co.uk
4) The next 25 Club all inclusive hospitality date is Saturday March 25 (1 pm – 2 25 pm) when the Drovers entertain Llanelli.
Members intending to be present are asked to let Gina know asap – and by March 13 at the latest –whether they will be attending on their own or will be bringing a guest.
Places cannot be guaranteed if no notice of attendance has been communicated to Gina.
*** The date of end of season dinner has had to be changed from Friday May 5 to Friday April 28 because there is a possibility that Llandovery will be playing in a Premiership play off the week-end May 5/6/7.
On April 28, 25 Club members and partners will enjoy a three course meal with all beer and wines included. Any member may invite an extra person at an all inclusive cost of £60.
We are hoping that the club coaches will do a Q and A session on the night and there will be a prize quiz for everyone. More details to follow.
PLEASE LET GINA KNOW ASAP YOUR INTENTION TO ATTEND AND WHETHER YOU WILL BE BRINGING A GUEST
