RESERVES & YOUTH SET FOR SEASON START

Reserves host Abergavenny Town at temporary home, while Youth travel to Caerau Ely.

Ton Pentre’s Reserve and Youth teams begin their respective season’s this weekend in the Welsh Football League.

It will be an historic moment for the Bulldogs as the club’s first ever Reserve Team will kick off life in Welsh League Reserve Division Central at their temporary home in Lewistown (Blackmill Road, CF32 7HU) against Abergavenny Town on Saturday (3 September) with a 2.30pm kick off. 

Reserve Team Manager Ross Griffiths, has worked tirelessly over the summer to prepare his squad for its inaugural season and the team will play a key role in player development at the club.

Meanwhile, the Youth team kick the season off on Sunday (4 September) at Caerau Ely, who often produce some fine young talent. The match at Cwrt Yr Awel kicks off at 2.30pm.

Ryan Bettenney has once again assembled a squad full of promising talent and will be keen to see how they do in their first competitive fixture of the season.

The Rhondda Bulldogs have launched its new Community Benefit Society (CBS) membership framework with an exciting range of membership options that will enable supporters and the wider community to own their community club.

The Ton Pentre AFC CBS General Manager, Rhys Williams outlined some of the thinking underpinning the membership model: “We believe there is something here for everyone, but the underlying principle is that all members over 16 will have one vote and all the members of the Club will own the club as a collective.

“The Club Board has created some exciting membership packages and I would encourage interested parties to review the suite of options on our web site.

“As part of our community development strategy, we are ensuring that membership is free to all Under 16s – these young people are the future of the club as players, supporters, volunteers or members or perhaps all of these at different times of their lives.”

Further information regarding the membership incentives behind the various categories of SQUAD MEMBER, STAR PLAYER, CLUB LEGEND, OVERSEAS and JUNIOR BULLDOG can be found here at the bottom of this page and by CLICKING HERE.

Club Chairman, Ceri Jones, encourages the community to get on board with the Bulldogs: “These are exciting times for the Rhondda Bulldogs and we have enjoyed a busy summer with the introduction of our new reserve team and the possibility of fielding a new girls team; and this is just the start of this new chapter for the Club.

“There is much more in the pipeline, so please take this unique opportunity to own your local club. The Bulldogs have an incredible reach with supporters and former players scattered far and wide and the membership model allows our friends old and new to connect with the club – we are committed to inclusivity and we extend a warm welcome to new members from all backgrounds that can help us shape the future of this great football club.“

Jones added: “Whilst there is a local feel to the club we very much want an outward looking approach that welcomes diversity and fresh thinking.”

A new membership portal in now available on the Ton Pentre AFC website to process membership applications and payments.
