Cefn Fforest claim Six South Central crown

Cefn Fforest RFC received the Division Six South Central trophy on Friday night after a hard-fought campaign, eventually pipping CIACS to the title.

“We’ve had a remarkable season and we were definitely the team to beat in our division,” stated Team Manger Mike Murphy, who has been involved with the club since 1997.
Cefn ended the season level on 68 points at the summit with CIACS, with the Gwent side having a better try count despite playing one less match. They won 14 of their 17 fixtures, losing just two matches and drawing another.
Unfortunately, Cefn were unable to complete their fixture list as opponents Blaengarw failed to field a side against the champions.
“It was a bit disappointing not to be able to play our final match but other sides were unable to complete their fixture lists for the same reason.”
Under the league restructure, the Gwent District side will find themselves in Division 3 East C and Murphy is excited by the challenge the new campaign will bring.
 “The club has been going well both on and off the field this season and we are all looking forward to the challenge that the new league will present. We have a number of youngsters that are coming on board and hopefully will keep us moving forward.”
Murphy was also keen to praise the work of a number of individuals that have contributed to the club’s success.
“I think I speak for everyone at the club when I say thanks to Coach Martin Lane and Carl Speicher for all their help, while long standing Secretary David Edwards has once again worked tirelessly for the club, and last but not least we have to thank our supporters who have been exceptional,” added Murphy.
