Newsletter No 5 November 8 2021

Please note that there is a separate 25 Club page on the Llandovery RFC web site with a drop down menu for newsletters. There is also a separate page for match reports

1)  TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION

The fourth round of the 2021-2022 competition  –  Llandovery  v Carmarthen Quins    –  saw two winners. The first Llandovery try from Callum Williams (11) earned Phil Ratcliffe £50. There was only one try for the Drovers so Rob Hunt (25) won the other £50

The fifth round is at the Llandovery v Aberavon game on Nov 27 2021

2) POSTPONEMENT

It was with much regret that the Llandovery v Quins pre-match hospitality had to be postponed because of safety reasons around the pandemic.

Rest assured that there will be a replacement pre-match hospitality in the new year when Llandovery are at home in the Indigo Premiership.

There will, therefore, be two pre-match hospitality days in 2022 on the occasion of  the Llandovery v Newport  (29/01/2022) and Llandovery v Pontypridd (12/03/2022) games.

Please note these dates in your diary.

Because of catering difficulties, the latter game replaces the once intended Llandovery v Cardiff pre-match hospitality.

Full details will follow in due course as will the date of the end of season Gala Dinner.
