Chairman's Welcome

On behalf of Llangennech Football Club may I welcome you to our website.  I hope you will find it enjoyable and informative to view.  The site is the focal point of our online presence with our Facebook and Twitter pages also constantly updating our members, supporters and visitors.

The club is run by an incredible group of proud and committed coaches, committee members, ex-players and dedicated parents, and new faces with new ideas are always welcome.

Llangennech Football Club has grown exponentially over the past several years.  Every year, the club aims to run two senior teams right down to under 6s minis teams; with mixed teams up to under 11s age group. This gives a great opportunity for both young boys & girls in the local community and surrounding areas to play football. The club also aims to run a Youth Team at under 18s, playing an important role in helping young players make the transition from our multiple-trophy winning junior section into our senior set up.

The club’s relatively brief history has seen its ups and downs, but recent seasons have brought unprecedented success to our club.  The club claimed its first ever knockout competition silverware in lifting the Darch Cup in 2017, while the first team won promotion from CAFL Div 3 in 2019, and Reserves gaining promotion to CAFL Reserve Div 2 for the first time ever in 2020. 

Llangennech AFC recognises the role that it has to play in the local community and surrounding areas and we will work determinedly to secure facilities that our members deserve. The club is proudly a founding member and affiliated to the Llangennech & Bryn Sports Association which is a community led charity who aim to improve grass-roots facilities for all sports within the community. 2020/21 will see the club maintain it's work alongside the charity.

The long summer of 2020 brought about the design of a new club badge to update the 1982 version. All club members and patrons were invited to vote on the design with the club driving its policy of inclusivity of members and community helping to make the club thier own. The winning crest has the club colours, year of establishment and includes the new and recently used club motto emblazoned in welsh "Brwydro Nid Plygu"; Fight Not Fold. The motto captures the spirit and history of the club's historical fight to survive as the underdog, while it will maintain significance into the future with the iconic Knights theme conveying chivarly, nobiltiy, pride, courage, faith, hope and genorosity and a continued "never say die" attitude.    

The delayed launch of the 2020/21 season due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic will hopefully see the club run 7 junior and mini teams, with senior Reserve and 1st teams (with the potential of a third team, pending league schedule) who will play in the Carmathenshire League. Also, following it's popularity since it's launch in 2018, the club will continue to run the "Llan Pops" veterans team who will play friendly games on Sunday afternoons. This will again be an opportunity for past players and affiliates to come and be part of the club in whatever capacity they feel fit enough to do!

We are very grateful for the many generous offers of support that have come our way both from local volunteers and businesses, without which we could not operate, and to reassure past and future sponsors that by sponsoring Llangennech AFC  you are contributing to the local community as a whole. Feel free to pop along to the “Llan Siro” to watch a game or two this season. The 2020/21 season will see the club run out in a new kit and - for the forst time - all players from under 6 to Senior will all be kitted out in the same strip! 

To finish, if you have any suggestions about possible improvements to this website, or wish to sponsor Llangennech AFC please feel free to email at media@llangennechafc.org.

Many thanks
