Wanderers Planning their future
Glamorgan Wanderers may have been shut down by Covid as every club in Wales has been but out of every adversity there is always an opportunity and the Wanderers want to make sure they hit the ground running when they finally open the doors again.
Chairman of Rugby Alyn Humphreys added “We already have a blossoming relationship with Rugby League both men and ladies teams playing out of the club and we are hoping to start up a rugby union ladies team this season. Discussions are ongoing but it looks promising that we could start up a Ladies team when the season gets going. Our junior section has had a tough time in recent seasons but the Under 14s under Jordan McDonell are flourishing. Other local clubs have developed extensive junior sections and we only wish to add to the rugby in the West of Cardiff not try and replace the good work that they are doing”.
The summer may be devastated and the season delayed but the Wanderers are not sitting quietly waiting for the Covid curse to lift. “The Championship is a great Division full of great clubs and we want to build on what we achieved last season” commented team Manager John Lyons “clearly success is judged by our first team but we are keen to expand and develop what we have in all aspects of rugby”
Director of Rugby Martyn Fowler commented “some clubs are making big announcements but do not be deceived into thinking we aren’t busy looking to strengthen our squad. We are keeping the pot simmering. There’s a mountain of prep being done and the players in the squad have all taken on board the individual fitness plans they were set. We will be making some announcements in due course and we are all very excited about the season whatever form it may take!.
Chairman Gerry Blake added “If you are interested in getting involved with rugby there will always be a welcome at the Wanderers. Why not take the plunge and get in touch!!!!
