Ospreys hunt for ghosts

Ospreys pair Olly Cracknell and Dmitri Arhip visited one of South Wales’ spookiest venues ahead of the upcoming Halloween match against the Newport Gwent Dragons.

As the players explored Margam Castle on the hunt for ghosts, they took the chance to adopt some of their own scary fancy dress to ward off any paranormal visitors. 

The visit to Margam Castle comes as the Ospreys are urging supporters to take part in the time-honoured tradition of fancy dress for the forthcoming game against the Newport Gwent Dragons at Liberty Stadium on Saturday 29th October (KO 3pm). 

Olly Cracknell said: “Thank you to the staff at Margam Park for letting us have a look around the castle, I must admit, walking around it did feel very spooky but luckily the ghosts stayed away for our visit.  

“We’re hopeful for a good turnout at next weekend’s big game against the Dragons, with as many as possible of them turning up in fancy dress to cheer the team on. It’ll be great to see our supporters, particularly the younger ones, getting creative and having a fang-tastic afternoon at the rugby.”

Tickets  cost from £20 for adults and £5 for children.  The specially themed Hall-O-zone will also be open for families from 1pm, with interactive games and activities, visits from Ospreys players for autographs and photos as well as Ozzie the Osprey, with bar facilities open for Mum and Dad.

Make no bones about it, Ospreys V Dragons is the place to be to celebrate Halloween this year. 

* Polite request for no ‘killer clown’ outfits please, there will be children in attendance.
