Guess who has a copy of the Notorious 50 years in GREEN, WHITE & BLACK?
- Our much loved Wales Captain..... Sam Warburton!


In the days leading up to the 2016 Six Nations Championship, Wales Captain Sam Warburton was presented with a copy of the Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club book ’50 Years in Green, White and Black’ by Gwernyfed stalwart Mike Eckley.

 

Mike was invited down to meet Sam at the WRU Training Barn at the teams Vale of Glamorgan Headquarters as the squad prepares for their opening fixture in Dublin next week.


The book, that was produced as part of Gwernyfed’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations chronicles the history of rugby in Breconshire in 1965 to the present day. It records results and reports from the first ever Gwernyfed XV to the Under Sevens in the Club’s 50th Season. If you are a past player then your name is likely in print and you may well appear in one of the over 100 photos in the publication!

Tour stories, triumphs and defeats.


It’s all in there, buy your copy while stocks still last from the following outlets.



The money raised from sales will directly help the next 50 years of GREEN, WHITE & BLACK in our great community!


All that history & many funny anecdotes for only £20.00 - go and get your copy - it's even on Sam Waburton's book shelf!!

Ball through the MOUTH! No Dogs Order

Health & Safety for all players and
the community.

No dogs allowed within the fields
(except on footpath, highlighted in
green on map)..


All dogs must be on a lead - Thank you for taking notice.


We are still having problems with members of the public walking their dogs on our sports pitches and allowing their dogs to foul & not clean up - this is an offence and more importantly can cause huge health problems. We have 17 sides that play & train throughout the week at Gwernyfed RFC and their health is the most important. So please please be considerate - don't walk your dogs on our pitches..

Dogs Law BRIAN “TITCH” JONES

It is with huge sadness that Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club announces the death of one of our favourite sons, Brian “Titch” Jones, who passed away peacefully at home on Sunday 20th November 2016.

He was one of the founder members of the club and had served on the Committee, often as Secretary or Treasurer, since its inception. He was made a Life Member 25 years ago and the Club was proud to further extend its appreciation by making him President in 2015. The Club was Titch and Titch was the Club - the two were inseparable, green, white and black flowed through his veins. In the wider rugby world Titch gained representative honours by playing for Breconshire, Neath and District and West Wales JRU and he was also honoured by the WRU in August this year when he was presented with a special one-off award for his services to Gwernyfed and Welsh rugby.


































Titch had a wicked sense of humour, never malicious but mischievous in the extreme. An afternoon watching rugby, either by the pitch or on TV, followed by banter and laughter in the Old Fart’s Corner was always a delight for all.

The Club wishes to express its deep sympathy to his wife Mary, his sons Ceri and Kyle, daughter-in-law Claire and grandchildren Alex and Samuel. We hope they take comfort from the knowledge that Titch was a greatly loved man.

There is a wound in the soul of the Club that will never completely heal.
