Youth v Treorchy National Youth Bowl SF pictures

By Bryan Weaver | 04/04/2017

Our thanks to John Davies, Llandybie, for these pictures of the Llandovery Youth narrow defeat by Treorchy in the National Bowl semi final on 25 March.

Derek Jones reports:

Llandovery Youth travelled to Ammanford for a semi-final against highly fancied Treorchy. Treorchy with a MUCH bigger, older and more experienced team looked odds on to brush a very young Drovers Youth aside. But oooohhhhhh no. That was not going to happen as this young side showed massive determination and a never-say-die attitude from the start.

Treorchy eased to a 10 nil lead but then came the move of the match. Showing wonderful handling skills from inside their own half the ball was transferred to young Yoke Price. Beating 3 men swerving and dummying and gaining fully 40 yards he made it to within 15 yards of the line then up popped the ever present Dafydd Land to swallow dive under the sticks. Brilliant. 

10-7, and despite a thrilling closing 20 minutes in which the Drovers threw everything at this very big side it was Treorchy who were delighted to hear the final whistle. 

A massive effort and very well played boys. You did The Drovers name proud.
