TREFYCLAWDD Rugby Club have launched a summer recruitment drive ahead of the new Swalec League season.

The Knighton club have appealed for more players to commit to the cause amid fears the club might fold before the new campaign.

Club spokesman Seb Barrett said: “It would be a real shame to lose the club after such a great season last year.

“It would also be a massive shame to the Knighton community to lose one of it’s sports clubs.”

Barrett allayed fears and insisted the club would go into the new season with confidence.

“At the moment it’s looking more positive with a few boys signing for the club but would be nice to see even more boys join the club regardless of experience.

“The club is like a family and anyone wanting to join will be welcomed to the family with open arms.”

Barrett thanked the Powys rugby community, clubs in the Swalec League and supporters from the Knighton community for support.

“We really appreciate the support from local community and the support from clubs that we play now and from the past.

“Some have told us what a welcoming and friendly club we are and hope to see some new faces for the upcoming season.

“The future is bright for the club. We have three junior sides with a total of near 50 kids who represent the future of our club.

Trefyclawdd train every Thursday under the guidance of the newly appointed coaching staff of Seamas Oryan and Sean Deakins.
