A team of Ospreys players descended on Crynant RFC to give the clubhouse a fresh lick of paint ahead of the new season.
Throughout the summer, the Ospreys have been getting their hands dirty after volunteering to help local rugby clubs with any odd jobs. The offer has seen players helping out at several clubs throughout the region including Severn Sisters RFC and Resolven RFC, with players also visiting Porthcawl RFC this weekend.
Dan Biggar, Nicky Thomas and Dafydd Howells all joined in with the painting at Crynant, giving the club a new lease of life in time for the new season to start, while Biggar also took time to man the mower and give the pitch a trim.
Jamie Furber of Crynant RFC, said: “We really enjoyed having the boys turn up and help out for the day. They were really enthusiastic and got stuck in to the painting. It’s great to see the players getting involved with the community at a grassroots level, as it provides such a good example for our younger players.”
Andrew Hore, Ospreys Chief Executive, said: “It’s important to us to show that we are a community-minded organisation and to reiterate how important our supporters are to us. Our players enjoy getting out and about in the community as it provides a great opportunity for them to engage with supporters. Ahead of the new season, we are delighted with the feedback we have received following our odd-job drive and look forward to seeing members of the local clubs at our upcoming matches.”
