25 Club Newsletter No 5 December 22 2019

1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION

The fifth round of the competition – Llandovery v Cardiff – saw two winners. The first Llandovery try was a penalty try and earned Doug Davies £50. The second and last try was scored by wing Aaron Warren (11) which got Tony Williams the other £50.

The next round is at the Llandovery v Carmarthen Quins game on Dec 28 2019

2) BUFFET

There will be a pre match all inclusive buffet for members and guests between 1 00 – 2 30 pm on the occasion of the Llandovery v Carmarthen Quins game this Saturday Dec 28.

Please confirm your attendance with an email to Gina to help with catering arrangements – droversrfc@gmail.com

3) BETTING ODDS

Bookmakers gave Llandovery a + 6 handicap start on Saturday so although the Drovers lost 25-20 (by 5 points) they did enough to give home backers a profitable day on the handicap. Bookmakers Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook, are offering both match and handicap odds on Indigo Premiership games.
