Llangennech AFC Veterans


Llangennech AFC will for the first time this season be running a veterans-type team for the 2018/19 season.

It’ll actually be called “Llan O36”... but not just over 36 in age. The premise is that it’ll be open to many of Llan’s “less-used” and "more rounded" footballers who are over 36 waist in size too. This is a call to all "Llan AFC Legends"; past & current players, or any veterans within the village who fit the bill and may fancy a run out.

The plan is to arrange some friendly games throughout the 2018/2019 season. We look to get fixtures against like-minded sides - either veterans or works teams, invitation/charity sides, maybe the odd 5-a-side squad who fancy a run out as an XI, etc. The plan would be primarily to play games on a Sunday afternoon then back to HQ at the Castle Inn for a few social pints and maybe watch the Sky Super Sunday game!

"Llan Pops" played their first match against Gorseinon Vets away at Parc-y-Werin on 30th September 2018; after putting in a good performance, with Goalkeeper Neil Bryant putting in a man-of-the-match performance, eventually Llan conceded goals in the 89th and 90th minutes to lose 2-0! Gutted! But history was made!

Anyway, please let us know if you’d be up for it. Whether you think you still have what it takes to dust off the boots and show how it’s done at the Llan Siro; or you feel you’re too old or unfit or whatever but fancy getting involved for the fun and social side of it (telling everyone how good you used to be!). You are all welcome!
