New Year restart for Ponty Youth

The New Year has ushered in a new start for Pontypridd Youth and a welcome one at that with a waterlogged December providing the players with an unscheduled midseason break.

A promising and generally successful autumn programme of games bodes well for the remainder of the season and certainly gives the coaching team of Simon Bayliss and Andy Price a platform to build on over the coming months. 

Significantly, the majority of the squad is at the younger end of the Youth age range having been brought through the club’s junior age teams but the core of last season’s group has been supplemented by an Anglo-Irish contingent from the University of Glamorgan and a couple of more local recruits and the talent within the squad continues to be recognised with a number of boys sharing their playing time with the Blues regional set-up.

The bare statistic of eight wins from fourteen games only tells part of the story with those victories taking Pontypridd Youth to the top of the Blues B league and into a semi-final of the District Cup and perhaps more impressively securing fantastic away victories over Bonymaen and Blackwood, leading lights in the Ospreys and Dragons Youth structures respectively.

The upcoming fixtures start with an away friendly at Pontyclun on Saturday 7th January with the semi-final of the District Cup potentially being played at Sardis Road on Friday 13th January.
