Heol-y-Cyw are looking for a player recruitment drive as they prepare for life in SWALEC League One East this season.
After finishing fifth in Division Two East last year, the club have been promoted and need reinforcements ahead of this year's campaign.
Players are needed not only for the first team but also for the second team who finished second in the Mid Glamorgan District League Premier Division last year after a narrow loss to Kenfig Hill in the play-off final.
Injuries and retirements have taken their toll on the squad and any new players will be welcome to join in the squad's training sessions.
Training is every Tuesday and Thursday at 6.45pm on the Heol-y-Cyw Ground next to the clubhouse. Club members also have access to a first class gym which is open 8am to 10pm every day.
Heol-y-Cyw is situated approx three miles from both Junction 36 of the M4 or from Junction 35.
Anyone interested in playing for Heol-y-Cyw should either turn up on either of the two training nights or contact Alan Lee either on 01656 862953 or 07909 102990 for more information.
