The start to the season proper is almost upon us, so time for a quick catch up on where things stand.

The first team, as last year, open their competitive fixtures with an FAW Trophy first round fixture. The draw paired us with Cwmaman Workmens Club of the Aberdare Valley League, at their ground, to be played on Saturday 13th August. The league campaign should start on Tuesday 16th August, but with opening day opponents Cromwell Youth unfortunately withdrawing from the Gwent County League, the first league fixture will now be on Saturday 20th August, where newly relegated Pill will visit the Rec.

The second team will open their Gwent Central campaign on Saturday 27th August, travelling to Penygarn and Trevethin who have returned after just one season in Gwent County.
