RCT Councillors Mrs Ann Crimmings, Mrs Sharon Rees and Mss Vikky Howells Cynon Valley AM.


In his opening address Mr Evans thanked his wife Mrs Chris Evans for her total support, help and commitment also thanking the AFC Llwydcoed Chairman Mr

Matthew Philips for his commitment, work, help and support. Mr Howard Morgan, Mr Stephen Jones, Mr Steven Price, Mr Christopher Denmead and Mr Tudor Jenkins were tanked for their Match Day help.

Mr Phillips firstly thanked the AFC Secretary Mr David Evans for all his work for the Club, the Club's Committee plus bar staff and special thanks to Miss Laura Banyard for her outstanding pre-match presentation work help ideas and superb buffet.


The AFC Llwydcoed Secretary then welcomed the AFC Llwydcoed U/16 History Makers Management Team Mr Howard John, Mr Andy Stevenson and Mr Michael Warren who thanked the AFC Llwydcoed Secretary for his total commitment and help also thanking Smart Solutions for sponsoring the U/16 kit and Track Suit tops. The U/16 Management Team then thanked the Club's Welsh League Management Team Mr Lee Williams and Mr Gareth Price for all their pre-final training coaching and support.


The AFC Llwydcoed U/16 Team had won the ARJFL U/16 League winning all twenty games and from there they won the SWFA U/16 Cup 8-2 against Port Talbot, the first team from the Cynon Valley since 1985/1986 to win the Cup. What an achievement.


AFC Llwydcoed Secretary then welcomed the Club's Welsh League Reserve Co-Manager Mr Steve Jenkins who had took over this season with Mr Anthony Jones, an extremely difficult season through first team call ups, injuries and commitment. The reward came late in the season winning a thrilling AVFL Jubilee Cup Final 6-4 in extra time. A reward for the Co-Managers and long suffering players like Jonny Price, Matthew Phillips, Luke Davies Officials Tudor Jenkins and Jason Jones. On the negative side Jonny Price sustained a serious career leg threatening injury.


The first part of this outstanding Presentation was the Welsh League Division Two campaign. Mr Evans informed the audience at the start of the season a new young Management Team took over. Manager Mr Craig Boulton, Assistant Manager Mr Tom Morris, Coach Mr James Joseph inheriting a very young inexperienced squad full of energy and commitment. During the half way stage of the season Mr Lee Williams and Mr Gareth Price were brought in to support and help the current Management Team on and off the field. The young team finished in a very respectable eighth position. Both Co-Managers Mr Craig Boulton and Mr Lee Williams spoke about the season to conclude the evenings presentations/celebrations.


A superb presentation and one to remember for years to come.

STM Sports announce new Management Team


We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Gareth Morgan as the new manager of STM Sports AFC for the coming season. After some lengthy negotiations Gareth has agreed to take over the talented promotion winning squad as of 14th May 2017 having previously and successfully managed several clubs in the Welsh Football League, Cwmbran Celtic, Llanwern FC (gained promotion to Division 2), Croesyceiliog FC (Welsh League Cup Winners) and more recently at AFC Porth just missing out on promotion this season. We are looking for that experience to take the club forward and build on the achievements of the last nine years.

 The experience of Gareth and his Assistant Player / Manager Dominic Dwyer at this level will be invaluable as the club ventures into new territory next season.

 We will be looking for a period of consolidation and stabilisation next season as the club adapts to the new division and at the same time expanding the club with the introduction of our new Under 19's Team that will allow us to develop the young players from the wealth of talent that we are lucky enough to have in our area.

 Gareth Morgan …... “the temptation to manage my local club was just too great to ignore, the squad oozes quality and their achievements to date have just been phenomenal, hopefully I can add to those achievements in the coming seasons”
