25 CLUB NEWSLETTER No 7, Jan 12 2020

1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION

The seventh home game of the competition – Llandovery v Ebbw Vale – saw two winners. The first Llandovery try was scored by No 14 Jordan Evans and earned ISMAIL OZDEMIR £50.

The second try, scored by centre Rhodri Jones (12) won HOWARD POTTER a further £50. Both Ismael and Howard were first time winners, so congratulations to both of them. As the Drovers are away for the next four Indigo Premiership games plus a Welsh Cup quarter final at Aberavon on Jan 25, the next round will be not until the Llandovery v Merthyr game on February 29 2020 Blame the WRU inspired fixture list!

2) BETTING ODDS

Bookmakers gave Ebbw Vale + 16 handicap start on Saturday so the draw meant those who backed Llandovery had a bad day. Anyone reading the weather conditions and canny enough to back the draw would have had odds of 25/1! Bookmakers Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook, are offering both match and handicap odds on all Indigo Premiership games.

3) 10% DISCOUNT

Both the West End Cafe and Oz’s now offer all 25 Club members a discount of 10% on food and beverage purchased at the cafe. Claim your 10% on production of your membership card. Many thanks to both Mark Vince and Ismail Ozdemir for their support of the Club
