LLANTRISANT RFC: 125th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BLACK ARMY
Llantrisant Rugby Football Club was formed in 1889 and has been known as the “Black Army” team ever since.
Throughout their history the club has enjoyed some outstanding success, including reaching the Mallet Cup Final in 1949 and winning the prestigious Brewer’s Cup in 1982. The Club has also produced two Welsh rugby internationals in Bradley Davies and Scott Andrews.
This publication tells the story of their successes, tragedies and fighting spirit on the rugby field. It also gives an insight into the club’s role in the community and how players took the name of Llantrisant around the world with their memorable overseas tours.
Filled with anecdotes from Welsh rugby internationals, a history of the teams and over a hundred team photographs, it provides a lasting record of success for Llantrisant RFC. All proceeds from the sale of this publication is donated to Llantrisant Rugby Football Club.
