LLANARTH Cricket Club have been awarded the Groundsmen of the Year Trophy for their picturesque ground.

The sponsors of the South-east Wales Cricket league, Thomas Carroll Insurance brokers, were keen to recognise the important but usually unsung role of the groundsmen in preparing pitches and maintaining facilities to enable amateur cricketers to participate in their favourite summer sport.

Throughout the cricket season visiting captains in all divisions of the South-east Wales Cricket League have been marking the standard of pitch, outfield and facilities at each ground that they played on. At the end of the season the results were tallied and it was village club Llanarth who were chosen as the inaugural winners of the trophy.

Llanarth’s ground is kept in immaculate condition by a dedicated team who not only give their time freely but often dip into their own pockets to purchase odds and ends and cover sundry expenses. The club is both proud and delighted that the efforts of their ground maintenance team have been recognised and is very grateful to each of them for their unstinting work.
