Penygraig RFC


The latest episode of my FREE podcast 'John On the Rhondda' might be of interest to members. Links below.
October 1896, Edward Mansel Jenkins was transferred to Huddersfield Rugby League Club. He had been a coal miner and was probably offered a house and a job rather than wages in order to move.
I have always been very proud of my Welsh great grandfather and have followed Wales ahead of my native England, making the journey to the Principality Stadium once a year.
I look forward to coming to watch Penygraig when we are back to normal.
Just thought I’d share this sad news about Johnny Marine passing. Johnny played for Penygraig in the 1970’s. His grandson Josh Brabon said if anyone has any photos of him during that time please let him know.
RIP Johnny.

Hello. I have just moved to the area and was wondering if there was a group for 5 year olds? My Son was part of the tots group in Llanharan and would like to continue with Rugby. Thanks
I believe my great uncle was many years ago a chairman of the penygraig social club. Does the name Will Jones ring a bell? He lived in Llwynypia.
Great turn out for our 1st session this evening, and s great session too.

Would also like to welcome all the new players to the club and hopefully continue this great journey we are on

The passing of Lee Watts this week has left a massive hole in our community. He was a credit to his family, his country and his community. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
From playing for Penygraig boys and girls club, the turberville arms to then coaching his beloved boys club Lee loved football even making an appearance for us in a rugby club v boys club football match (a few years back) as we were short and scoring a worldie into the top corner from the edge of the box (which he took every opportunity to tell everyone 😂)
He supported us on a good few occasions over the years aswell although maintaining that chasing the egg was crap and he just fancied a pint with the boys.
You will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts at the club are with Lee's family, friends and everyone that had the chance to meet him at this sad time.


U6s again tonight for a 5.30 start.
Going from strength to strength with 13 attending last week. Hopefully match that or beat it tonight 🏉☀️👊


A big Happy Birthday to our Arfon Henderson 🥳🥳

Have a great day young man

Here he is with his life membership for services to Glamorgan County Silver Ball Competition

Always Mr Penygraig 👏🏻

Great start with our U6's......6 really enthusiatic kids enjoyed the games we played with, plenty of water breaks inbetween the games, big thank you to the parents for bringing them along...same time and place next wednesday, hopefully be a bit cooler for the kids to enjoy again.


Don't forget the U6's first training session is starting tonight at 5.30pm. We have had great interest in tonight. The ground is very hard so the kids will be fine in trainers, bring plenty of drinks.


The club are also looking for a physiotherapist to work with the senior squad. Would be required on tuesday and thursday evenings, along with saturday afternoons.
This would suit someone in university, college providing experience alongside their coursework or someone doing it in their spare time.
We could also look into providing the necessary courses and qualifications for someone looking to be a qualified physiotherapist.


The club are currently looking for someone to film games on some saturday afternoons throughout the season.
Preferably someone with their own equipment and editing software, although a camera could be provided.
This would suit someone with an interest in editing, sports analysis etc.
Maybe someone doing it in university, college or just their spare time.


Exciting news at the club

Next Wednesday, August 10th, we will be starting an U6's side at the club.

Sessions will be at our famous home ground Graig Park, every wednesday for a 5.30pm start.

This will be the 1st U6’s team in many years and we can't wait to have them with us.

No previous experience needed, boys and girls welcome. We can’t wait to see this grow into a great mini section at the club 💪🏻

Info: Players can join the U6’s once they have turned 5 years of age.

Children in the Under 6 to Under 8 age groups will learn the game through 'Tag Rugby' where there is no physical contact and no tackling.


Is this the 3rd test winning squad?
