Their aim is to raise funds, continually improve the image of the club and purchase equipment etc.
They’ve launched a Twitter feed (follow them at @1896BULLDOGS) and a website, www.1896BULLDOGS.wordpress.com.
The 1896BULLDOGS have also released the following statement:
The 1896BULLDOGS are a fan movement that intends to help and support Ton Pentre AFC. Our plan is simple, to raise funds and make improvements.
Football in Ton Pentre dates back to 1896 and it is our intention to ensure football in the village continues for all to enjoy.
We are a growing group of loyal fans and under the 1896BULLDOGS banner we hope to raise funds to improve the image of Ton Pentre AFC. Before our launch, the founders raised funds to purchase equipment for the Ynys Park canteen.
Since then the 1896BULLDOGS have raised more and for the 2012/2013 season we will supply the squad with post match leisurewear.
Our members have been working hard to raise funds in order to achieve this with the majority of it being donated out of their own pockets.
It is now time to up the ante and assist the Club so that many more generations can enjoy watching local football at Ton Pentre AFC.
If you’re interested in helping us please get in touch.
We’ll release more details prior to the start of the season on how you can join the 1896BULLDOGS as we want the movement to grow and grow.
When the 1896BULLDOGS release more details we’ll provide them here on tonpentreafc.com as well.
