Mike Rutherford’s under 19’s are set to make their Welsh League Debut with the visit to Rhiw D’dar next Monday(10th) against Taffs Well.
After winning the West Wales League last season the young reds are making the big step up this season and will be looking to try and hold their own against some established youth teams.
Rutherford has played some testing pre-season friendlies against the likes of Carmarthen, Aberystwyth and Pontardawe and after recently being awarded his Uefa ‘B’ license will be relishing testing his knowledge this season whilst further developing his players.
Rutherford said ‘ I just can’t wait to get started now, it has been a long pre-season but the players have applied themselves brilliantly and are looking forward to making the step up. We are under no illusion how hard it is going to be but really excited to get going.’
Their first home game will be against Risca Utd on Monday 14th September 7pm kick off.
