We would like to wish corinna Jones and her family the very best of luck, they fly to Kenya in the morning to build a new life and we are gutted to see them go. They also get to finally see Simon who is Corinna’s husband, he’s been out there for 11 months, covid stopped the rest of the family going and they finally have the green light tomorrow.

The whole family became part of us, Corinna, not only achieved things as an athlete but was so committed to coaching & helping the club in every aspect. We hope this isn't the end of them being part of this club, we won’t mind if you bring some of the Kenyans back to our club too...

We wish you the very best of luck. 🇰🇪 🇰🇪

Bit of a history for the Ynys grounds, where our lovely new athletics track is built 😍😍

The Ynys Stadium in Aberdare in the first decades of the twentieth century initially as the home of Aberdare Rugby Football Club and subsequently as the home ground of Aberdare Rugby League Football Club and later still Aberdare Athletic Association Football Club. In the Edwardian period, the ground featured a cycling track. This was converted for use as a greyhound racing track and opened on Boxing Day, 1931. On 1 January 1908, the Ynys played host to the first-ever rugby league international (between Wales and New Zealand). Though the field remains in use for sporting activity today, the site is much changed with several pitches (for soccer, rugby, and cricket), and athletics track, a children's play area, the Michael Sobell Sports Centre, and Aberdare Swimming Pool having been developed in the second half of the twentieth century. The original pitch has now been converted to astroturf to enable all-weather use. Now the site of Aberdare new Community School. and new sports ground
