The Ospreys make two complimentary tickets available every home game to each of the 77 clubs across the region, which are donated to club members who put in the essential hard work required to enable a community club to operate as a reward for their efforts.
As part of this initiative, and to recognise the loyal club men and women without whom grassroots rugby simply wouldn’t exist, we are encouraging participating clubs to provide us information about the individuals receiving club tickets, to allow us to feature them on ospreysrugby.com.
At the Leinster game last weekend, Rob Woodhouse received Briton Ferry RFC’s club allocation. Rob been associated with Briton Ferry for the last 25 years, first as a Bar Man then as a 2nd team player. Club Steward from 2004 to 2007 he has served on the Committee for the last 12 years.
Meanwhile, husband and wife Gwyn and Lynette Harding have been handed Bridgend Athletic’s allocation for Friday night’s Gloucester match. Gwyn is a coach has been involved as a volunteer coach and referee since 200 and is also the club's District representative, providing a vital link between the club and the junior district organisation. His wife Lynnette is the Mini & Junior treasurer and has been the team manager for the U15's for many years.
Andrew Hore, Chief Operations Officer, commented:
“Ospreys Rugby are delighted to provide these tickets to reward those people working tirelessly at the community clubs across Ospreylia. We recognise that without the efforts of everybody at grassroots level then the sport simply could not prosper, and the work they do day-in, day-out lays the foundations for any success we have at the Ospreys. Inviting them to be a part of a matchday at the Liberty Stadium is recognition of their contribution to the long-term sustainability of rugby in the region.”
