THERE is a new addition to the junior section at the Old Penarthians RFC. A girl’s social rugby team for ages 6-11 has started. Their first session went brilliantly, it was clear the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves as there was a smile on every face. They are all very excited to be a part of the team and they are all very much looking forward to next week’s session. It is non-contact rugby, so tag only. Danielle Lane and Paige Martin will be coaching the team. They want girls to know that they can be involved in rugby too. They meet every Sunday at the Old Penarthians, starting at 10.30am. It’s a chance to learn new skills, be active, make new friends and have fun.

COGAN Coronation hosted Margam Youth Centre in Saturday’s South Wales FA Senior League Division Two fixture. It was a match that Cogan dominated from start to finish, and the 2-0 score line could’ve been far greater. From the first whistle Cogan were on the attack with a display of passing football that was enjoyable to watch. The high energy movement and strong team work ethic meant that surely a goal would come. But the opposition kept men behind the ball and defended well.

A TEN man Sully Centurions travelled to Rogerstone on the last day of the league season and were well beaten by the talented home side. Batting first Rogerstone lost an early wicket when Adam Sylvester bowled L Harry for a duck to leave the score on seven for two. But this was to prove a false dawn as A Harry and Holdaway put on 45 for the second wicket – and then Harry and Tutton amassed 144 in a match winning third wicket partnership. Sylvester was the best of the Centurions bowlers, with three for 47, but although a total of seven wickets fell, the home side had put 318 runs on the board by the end of the innings, with Harry being finally run out for a fine 150.

ON Saturday, September 13 Old Illtydians played at their new home at Moorland Park, Splott for the first time and they were pleased to host Old Penarthians in a National League Division 3 East Central (A) fixture. The two clubs have comparable histories having been started as school associations and Illts Chairman, John Manders, considered this inaugural fixture was a fitting kick off to their new venture. The hosts have much to do in respect to a refurbishment of the old Moorland Road Library but it is hoped that their project will be successfully completed by the next time the two sides meet.
