“Sponsorhsip opportunities available”
Yesterday the Warriors held a well attended AGM and tour meeting at Burry Port.
In the last 12 months the Warriors completed their most prolific season to date which included: the tour to New Zealand and Samoa, hosting Gaztedi and the Bumbles, hosting 7s tournament. This season the Warriors have already played 10 fixtures. There are more players and more regular players than ever before. Training is well attended.
The club has fixtures up to the end of the 6 Nations
The club's profile is high with thousands of followers on social media. The club were guest speakers for Sport Wales recently, have visited Scrum V, been featured on BBC, S4C and NZTV and worked closely with the WRU. They continue to be play a major role in forwarding the concept of mixed ability rugby, playing a substantial role in the formation of the Cardiff Chiefs.
The fundraising group has worked very hard and regular curry nights and monthly discos have been established. Many thanks to all the group including Vanessa Morgan who is no longer involved with the club but whose work is never the less still very much appreciated. Next disco is on Valentine's Day.
The club held it's 2nd annual Black tie dinner - another success, plaudits to Jamie Evans.
