Friday evening saw us hold our third annual past and present players reunion. After 2 successful evenings in 2017 and 2018 the clubhouse was packed to the rafters to see former Rugby League star Jim Mills tell some great stories of his career. As well as former players, rugby fans from Cwmgwrach RFC, Seven Sisters RFC, Crynant RFC, Banwen RFC, Rhigos RFC, and Bryncoch RFC supported our fantastic evening.
Dai Parker once again was our fantastic MC, while Dai Morris and Glyn Shaw took part in a question and answer session along will Jim and Dai after the main performance.
The hog roast provided by Dragon Hog roast was amazing as ever.
We would like to thank all who supported our evening as well as Mark Davies for setting up the night along with help from other club members. 
Finally we would also like to thank Mr. Glyn Shaw and Mr. Dai Morris for taking part in the Q&A as well as the MC Mr. Dai Parker. Most off all we'd like to thank Mr. Jim Mills for making the evening so successful. His stories were extremely funny and I'm sure they will be retold by all of the audience for a long time.
