Fred Keenor Appeal Skittles Night

Merthyr Town supporters have laid down a challenge to the Cardiff City Supporters Trust for a skittles match at Taffs Well Ex-Servicemens Club on Thursday 28th April from 7.30pm.

The match will be held as a fundraiser for the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal currently being raised by the Cardiff City Supporters Trust to recognise the player who represented both his Club and Country so proudly and culminating in him lifting the FA Cup for the Bluebirds in 1927 (the picture above shows Fred Keenor bringing the FA Cup to Penydarren Park five days after the Final; Merthyr won 1-0 that day).

Supporters of both clubs are welcome to attend the match to help raise funds for this worthwhile cause which is close to our hearts at Merthyr Town FC.

Our thanks go to Taffs Well Ex-Servicemens Club for hosting the event and also for providing excellent hospitality to Merthyr supporters during our current season in exile at Rhiw Dda'r.
