Trundle signs for Ammanford

Published

on

AMMANFORD AFC are delighted to announce that former Swansea City striker Lee Trundle has agreed to join the football club and to ply his trade at the Recreation Ground in the 2019/2020 season.

After an illustrious career within the professional game, most notably with Swansea City and Bristol City, Trundle has since turned out in the Welsh domestic system for Llanelli Town and Haverfordwest County.

On the football field, Trundle enables the football club to continue to grow its stature in the domestic game by continuing to provide the young footballers in the town with a football club which plays at one of the highest levels of football in Wales.

However, Trundle equally presents future endeavours to the football club in continuing its commitment to enhancing its community engagement plans.

Upon joining the club, Trundle stated “I’m really pleased to be joining the club. The hard work the club have put in off the field with the new stand, floodlights and ground improvements show the club are moving in the right direction.

“Hopefully with my experience I can make an improvement on the pitch with my own ability as well as helping other players along the way.

“The club has a great family feel to it and I’m looking forward to the community coming out and supporting the boys on a match day and in return myself getting out into the local community and helping out wherever I can. I believe to be part of the football club you become part of the area and by us all working together we can bring good times and make great memories”.

Ammanford welcomes Lee to the football club and look forward to working with him in the forthcoming season.

WALES’ Six Nations match at home to Scotland on Saturday has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The two other Six Nation fixtures had already been postponed and no date has been confirmed to complete the 2020 Championship.

The Welsh Rugby Union had insisted earlier on Friday the game would “go ahead as planned”.

A WRU statement read: “The Welsh Rugby Union has maintained an open dialogue with, and continued to seek advice and direction from, the National Assembly for Wales and other stakeholders, including the Six Nations, on this fast-moving issue.

“Whilst medical advice remains consistent, we have decided that it is in the best interests of supporters, players and staff to fall in line with recent measures taken across the UK and global sports industries.

“The WRU would like to thank all parties for their counsel on the subject and will make further announcements with respect to rescheduling the fixture in the coming days.

“Every effort has been made to stage this game and we appreciate that individuals will have been inconvenienced. Given the fluid and unprecedented nature of this issue a postponement became the only viable option.”

Static Bike Challenge

Published

on

Firefighters from Llandelio Fire Station took part in a 22-hour static bike challenge to raise money for Llandilo Rural Fire Brigade who have been tirelessly battling the devastating bush fires in Australia. LLandilo town in Australia was named after Llandelio in Carmarthenshire and the Fire Stations have maintained their connection over the years.

Seeing the efforts and the devastation of the bush fires in Australia and the work and dedication from the Firefighters to ensure their communities are safe, crews from Llandelio decided to raise funds by undertaking a 22 hour cycle on static bikes to represent the time it takes to fly to Australia.

On the 15th February 2020 at 3pm the challenge started! The firefighters were split into two teams of five, with each team taking it in turn to cycle for 30 minutes each throughout the 22 hours. This ensured that they were continually cycling and whilst still being able to provide operational cover. All this took place during Storm Dennis and during the challenge crews were called out to a total of eight incidents, one of which was a property flooding, during which crews rescued 6 adults and 2 dogs from a potentially critical situation.

Watch Manager, John Herman from Llandeilio Fire Station said:

“This entire experience has brought the two fire stations closer together, and after keeping in contact throughout this last few months, we look forward to continuing that connection for years to come!”

Over the two days, crews welcomed many visitors who came to show their support and donate money to the charity. To date the figure stands at £2,500 which is equivalent to almost $4900 AUD, and this figure is still rising with donations coming in from schools, town councils and public donations! Crews would like to give a special thanks to Llandelio CP School and Ysgol Gynradd Ffaifach who raised collectively over £800 for the challenge.
