When Celyn Ashton took to the field against Porth Harlequins on the 9th of February he became only the fifth player to play 200 league matches for Treorchy since the National Leagues were introduced in 1990-91.
Celyn made his 1st team debut on the 17th of December 2005, just two days after his 18th birthday. The match was an away fixture at Hirwaun, and Celyn scored 17 points from 5 penalties and a conversion in a convincing 22-9 victory in Division 3 South East.
Celyn went on to make 17 1st team appearances that season and, after taking over kicking duties from Lee Stone, finished the season as top scorer with 172 points.
Mostly weekend work, good rates of pay.
Interviews will take place on Monday 29th April at Treorchy RFC.

The coaches have appointed Jordan Lloyd as 1st XV Captain for the 2018-19 season.
This will be outside half Jordan's third stint as Captain since taking over the role in mid-season 2016-17.
Since making his 1st XV debut versus Penallta on 1 May 2010, Jordan has played in 141 league matches for the Zebras and was an ever present in seasons 2016-17 and 2017-18. He has also been the top points scorer for the last five seasons.
Now that's what it means to lead by example!
We're pleased to confirm the senior side's coaching set-up for the forthcoming season. Andrew Bishop retains the head coach position, whilst Craig Everett takes up the forwards coaching role.
'Bish' has proven his ability as a progressive young coach, balancing his role as a skills coach with the Ospreys, as well as taking the reigns as their newly established Under 23 defence coach, and keeping his role with Treorchy RFC. Since taking the head coach role with us 2 seasons ago, the team has won the Division One League title in his 1st season and the Mid District Cup & 3rd place in the league last season.
'Crag' rejoins us after many years on the road honing his coaching skills. Success at Pontypool Schools & Monmouth saw Craig being selected by the Blues to coach the U18s whilst overseeing the U16s development at the Arms Park outfit this season.
Treorchy 32 - 24 Rhydyfelin
Report by Jay Bayford
Treorchy team manager Gareth Wilcox admitted his side’s Worthington’s Mid District Cup triumph over Rhydyfelin was the best send-off he could have asked for.
Wilcox is due to step down from his role this summer and lifting the cup was the best possible farewell.
“It’s a really good way to finish as team manager,” said a delighted Wilcox.
“This is my last game and what a send-off from the boys. I couldn’t ask for a better one.
“They are a big strong side and play in the league above us, but the boys fronted up well and I think they tired in the second half and we took advantage of that with the pace of our forwards and backs.
“I thought the second-half performance was outstanding.”
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.
