Travis Perkins Team Of The Month – June


Pontypool United Under 8’s Rugby

Sport: Rugby

Playing ground: The Memorial Ground, Pontypool

Team founded: 1946

Pontypool United RFC was established in 1946 and in 2021 celebrated its 75th year. It is very much a community club and has over 300+ members. 250 of these form the Mini & Junior section and ages range from 6 through to 16.

Our under 8’s have enjoyed a successful year up to date with lots of tags taken and tries scored. We put this down to the kids enjoying being together and being part of a “team”. We always have strong numbers at training which flows through come Sunday when we play our matches. A big step-up next year as we head into U9’s and early contact, but the kids are really looking forward to it!!

We are all looking forward to our end of season tour to Devon Cliffs at the end of May to enjoy some fun on the beach!
