A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us in the latest round of the Treorchy Wind Fund. We have been awarded the following grants:
£2,500 towards the cost of indoor training for the minis and junior teams during the Winter months. This not only protects our youngsters, it also gives the Oval a much-needed rest and reduces the number of fixtures called off for all teams.
£5,000 towards improving disabled access to the clubhouse. The work will centre on access to the lounge where the current multi-level step / ramp is difficult for wheelchair users and anyone with reduced mobility.
When he stepped out on to the field to face Llanharan on Saturday (11 November), Peter Hutchings made his 300th League Appearance for Treorchy RFC.
Peter made his first team debut at the tender age of 21 on 31 August 2002 in a 31-11 defeat at Cross Keys. He went on to play 16 league matches in a tough season that had 34 league matches (yes 34!). He didn't manage to score any tries that season but has made up for it since.
Peter reached the 100-match milestone in 2006-07 and two seasons later he became our all-time leading try scorer when he broke through the 50 try barrier. In 2011, Peter reached his 200th match and by this time had scored 77 tries. His try scoring ratio has stood the test of time and he has scored 115 tries in his 299 matches to date.
