Newcastle Emlyn FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/RUGBYCLUBMAG Emyr Jones is a local lad who played a little youth rugby for the club many years ago. More recently he has been a sponsor and fan of Newcastle Emlyn RFC. He told Rugby Club Magazine, “It’s a great achievement to have maintained a rugby club, with its many successes, for the past forty years. Unfortunately, I wa s only able to get to a few games last season and hope to increase that this year. In the matches I attended I was very impressed by the quality of the play. The Premier Shop has been a sponsor for the past few seasons and we like to help when we can. Congratulations to everyone at Newcastle Emlyn Rugby Club on what they have achieved in the past and I wish them all the very best of continued success for the next 40 years!” Recent Achievements 2009-10 – 1st XV Division 3 West Champions 2011-12 – 2nd XV won Llanelli & District Cup, Youth XV won Scarlets A League, West Carms Cup and lost in National League Play Off Final 2012-13 – 1st XV runners-up Division 3 West, West Wales Bowl, National League Play Off match against Newport High School Old Boys, 2nd XV Won Division 1 All Wales Sport League 2013-14 – 1st XV promoted to Division 1 under League re-organisation 2014-15 – 1st XV Won Division 1 West and beat Bonymaen in the play off to enter the WRU Championship, they also lost to Ystrad Rhondda in the WRU Plate competition played at the Millennium Stadium, 2nd XV won the Carmarthen Tyres League 2015-16 – 1st XV remained in the Championship, 2nd XV won Scarlets League, Llanelli & District Cup and trophies for scoring most tries and league points 2016-17 – 1st XV finished in 5th position in the Championship, 2nd XV took part in WRU Pilot scheme playing friendlies against 1st XVs playing in Division 3 West C 16 Issue 73
