200 not out for Trystan

Trystan Lazarus has joined an elite band of players when he became only the fourth Treorchy player to reach the 200 league appearances milestone since the introduction of the National Leagues in 1990/91.


Trystan made his 1st team debut in the narrow 16-15 away win at Ruthin on 10 September 2005.  Trystan has been top try scorer in a number of seasons and, even after 12 seasons as a 1st team player, is still one of the first names on the team sheet.


Congratulations on a tremendous achievement, Trystan!

Treorchy RFC benefits from police officer award

Thanks to a South Wales Police Officer winning the 2015 High Sheriffs’ Shrievalty Cup, Treorchy RFC is better-off to the tune of £500.

 

PC Julian Williams, Neighbourhood Beat Manager for Treherbert and Treorchy triumphed in the awards ceremony in recognition for his services to the community after managing a variety of successful local initiatives.

 

Julian said: “I was really proud to win the award and putting the funds to good use is great for the club and community.

 

“We are going to use the money on a project to paint murals and conduct a general tidy up in and around the rugby ground area. In addition, I will be utilising my police youth volunteers for the project and they will be assisting with the cleaning and painting. This is an excellent example of community cohesion and will effectively address recent community concerns about anti-social behaviour.”
