MOUNTAIN ASH YOUTH 36 vs BRECON YOUTH 5
Mountain Ash Youth took on Brecon at the Caedrawnant in their first league fixture of the season. Having tasted defeat in their two opening games against Caerphilly and Llanharan, they were understanderbly delighted with an impressive 36-5 victory over Brecon on Saturday. With practically a new and inexperienced team this was always going to be a period of transition for the Young Firm but improved performances such as this will do them no harm whatsoever.Going into the last quarter, Brecon were still in with a shout trailing by 15points to 5 but a devastating lfinish saw Mount pull away for a convincing victory. Outstanding prospect Thomas Pascoe was in superb form notching 21 points with a hat trick of tries and conversions with further touchdowns coming from Gareth Evans, Gareth Waters and Ross Davies.Mountain Ash Youth are currently operating with a small squad and would welcome any new players to come along to training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. A further development is a proposed end of the season tour to Holland.
