Glynneath 2nds celebrate their win of the Worthington Neath & District Cup final against Briton Ferry at Severn Sister RFC on Friday.
Glynneath 2nds defeated last season's winners Briton Ferry Quins 24-13 to capture the Worthington Neath and District (H G Lewis) Cup in a splendid final played at Seven Sisters.
With the pitch in top-class condition, it seemed that the Glynneath's backs were likely to run riot early on, but Briton Ferry dug in and with great spirit leveled the try-count at 2-2 by the finish.
The difference was the boot of Glynneath centre Shaun Tennant, who opened the match with a penalty hat-trick and then converted a god try by left wing Matthew Davies after a clever break by fly half Darren Davies.
It had been Briton Ferry who led with a penalty by fly half Michael Arnold, but Glynneath were clear at 19-3 by half-time and soon afterwards added a good team try touched down by prop Clive Bowen.
Andrew Chappell came on to rouse the Briton Ferry pack and No 8 Julian Knight crossed the Glynneath line three times, though only two efforts were awarded.
The game, that was watched by Glynneath president Max Boyce and former international referee Clive Norling, ended with Kim Priddle, Field Sales Executive of Molson Coors, presenting the cup to Glynneath's wing and captain Dan Challenger.
Credit went to both sides for a good, spirited game with Glynneath deserving the win, but Briton Ferry's spirit was magnificent.
The annual Women's club launch was held at the Wales Centre of Excellence where National Women's Head Coach and Programme Lead Rhys Edwards, Competition Secretary Adrian Howell and Cardiff Met player Ffion Jones express eagerness for the new campaign to get under way.
