Easter Sunday’s bike ride which this year was in memory of our friend Mark Stephens was from Porthcawl & we had an amazing 46 riders making the journey via a few watering holes back to the Club.

The Rotary Club of Maesteg Sponsors Bryn RFC

The Bryn Rugby Club was formed in c 1900 and the team competed successfully until the advent of the professional game in 1995. From that time the club found it difficult to attract players from the local towns and villages and as there were insufficient young men in the village to form a viable team it was disbanded in 2002. The desire to reform the team has remained throughout the past eight years and the current demographics within the community are such that there is now the nucleus of a team from within the village. With interest also being shown from other local players finishing the end of their professional careers, it was considered viable to reform the team for the forthcoming season. The President of the Maesteg Rotary Club, Viv Gage who lives in Bryn brought this important initiative to the attention of his Club who agreed to sponsor the Bryn RFC shorts, for the new season. The picture shows the Vice Captain Scott Morris accepting the Shorts from Viv Gage, also in the picture is Glan Phillips, Treasurer of Bryn Rugby Club that opened in 1959.The presentation took place at the Bryn Rugby Club’s Presidents Evening. The Club President welcomed Viv Gage and Robert Davies and thanked them and the Rotary Club of Maesteg for its generosity. The Guest of Honor for the Evening was Alan Bateman a former Wales and British Lions Representative who can justifiably be described as one of the world’s greatest players.
