As the Red Army continues to grow, making club history, Rhondda Ladies will not only enter one, but TWO indoor teams into the Summer Indoor League, where both teams will start their campaign tonight at USW Sport Park.
The journey began back in January 2016, where we entered our first indoor team into the South Wales Womens League, with the aim of having fun through extra hockey and social opportunities. Since then, the interest has continued to grow with other members seeing the positive impact indoor has on the outdoor game. With 24 members named between the two squads, everyone looks forward to the beginning of our next Indoor journey.
A special thanks to Kay Tyler who has been the driving force behind the coordinator of Indoor, and well supported by our members.
Last night, our Young Ambassadors Morgan, Kate and Lauren rose to the challenging of organising and coordinating a club Easter Disco for our Junior Members. From purchasing prizes for the night to planning the event plan for the evening, the girls done a fantastic job and altogether fund raised £180 for the club.
This might be the first, but definitely will not be the last even that the Young Ambassadors run, they will continue to support the coordination of club events and look to host seasonal junior discos.
A fantastic well done to Morgan, Kate and Lauren, a huge credit to the club.
Last night, we took to Pontypridd RFC to host our Annual Halloween Spooktacular Disco, where we invited club and non-club members to join in the family fun and support us in fundraising for the club. We saw over 20 children attend with their families and got involved with fun games including the mummy game, toss the coin and of course the penultimate Fancy Dress competition.
Thank you to all those that supported and contributed to the evening, we manage to raise a fantastic £150 that will now go back into the club to support the growth of the youth and senior section. A special thank you to Pontypridd RFC for hosting us, a great venue, lovely staff and definitely somewhere we will return to use in the future.
Keep your eyes peeled for what we have upcoming in the next few months!
Today, we took to our local superstore at Tesco Upperboat to fundraise through bag packing for new Junior Playing Kit. Both seniors and juniors took to the checkouts, supporting people of the public to pack their shopping bags and talked to them about our club, and the importance of what we were fundraising for.
As our junior section continues to grow, we want to ensure that the brand of the club is continuous throughout, and the juniors play in the same design kit as the seniors, demonstrating the 'One Club, One Red Army' philosophy.
With thanks to the local community, we raised a phenomenal £895.86, that has got the whole club amazed and grateful of how kind the people of the public have been. This total will make a huge difference to the Youth Section of our club and will continue to raise the visibility of our club and general hockey provision in the community of RCT.
A huge thank you goes to Tesco Extra, Upperboat for hosting us today, all the checkout staff that supported us were fantastic, and we are grateful for the store allowing us to carry out this fundraiser.
Our U13’s were at Hawthorn today for their second tournament of this season and there was no doubting the determination to continue their winning streak. The first match against Whitchurch E/Radyr was a convincing 7-2 win. They are definitely settling into the new playing formation and it’s really starting to show in their confident play.
The next game against Whitchurch D was tougher. They lost 3-1 but the solid defending play kept the opposition’s score down. The game against touring side LVS Ascot was another storming 7-1 win and today was finished off nicely with a hard fought 5-3 win against Cwmtawe.
The squad welcomed April and Mia to the pitch today for their first U13 games, they quickly settled to the pace and gave a good account of themselves. Well done both!
Today’s goals came from Sera, Naiya, Florence, Amy and Martha with no less than 4 hat tricks amongst them.
Thanks as always to Liz and our additional coaches today, Kay and Lowri. The support and feedback is very much appreciated. Lastly, thanks as always to our fab group of supportive parents. It’s always great to hear the cheers from the sideline, you must be very proud of your girls today.
The Under 11's headed to Brecon this morning. They were faced once again against Gwent even after losing 10-0 2 weeks ago that didn't stop them from giving 100% as they showed great skill and determination and fought back with a loss of only 3-0 and 6-0. They then went on to play Brecon and came away with an unlucky 1-0 loss. After playing for a solid hour they played an extra game against Brecon and scored a well deserved goal coming from Connie (Drew 1-1). The difference in play in only 2 weeks is incredible. They all should be extremely proud of themselves, thanks once again to the parent support on the sidelines, Sue for umpiring all games and Kay for her guidance. Go Rhondda Juniors, the future is bright!!!!
