Everyone at Ton Pentre AFC would like you wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Bulldogs Chairman Ceri Jones, has issued the following Christmas Message:
Season greetings to all of our supporters, sponsors and stakeholders. I’d like to thank you all on behalf of the Ton Pentre AFC committee and players for your vital support for the Club.
Christmas is a time of celebration, but also an opportunity to reflect. I can personally look back with much satisfaction on the progress that we have made in the last 12 months – a period during which the survival of the Club itself had more than an element of doubt. But we regrouped and due to the efforts of our wonderful team of volunteers we now have a renewed vision for the future.
The Bulldogs have worked extremely hard to build links with our community, here are a few examples:
Working in partnership is now our template and over the next 12 months we’ll be announcing many more exciting collaborations such as the one that we have with Tenovus Cancer Care. Our partnerships with companies locally and further afield are vital and I would like to thank all of them here for their support.
These are our sponsors (in no particular order) so please support them when you can:

The Bulldogs community model is more than rhetoric. In 2016 we will be issuing community shares to convert to a Community Benefit Society. This effectively means that our community, supporters and members all become owners of the Football Club. This is a fantastic opportunity for theRhondda and I urge you all to grasp it with both hands.
Finally, I would like to pay tribute to all our players and coaches who deliver the results for the club week in week out. Together with our hard working volunteers I believe we have a formidable team at the Club, why not join us in 2016 to help us put the Rhondda on the map.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
