Merthyr supporters show their support for Godre'r Coed fields
Merthyr Town FC expressed its support for the campaign to save the school field at Cefn Coed today with the first appearance of its supporters cricket team to take on the Cefn Social club team who are organising matches on the threatened community facility to widen its use and also show the benefits of exercise.
The school field site has been earmarked as a possible venue for the new Ysgol Y Graig school however locals are concerned that one of the few green field sites in the villages would be lost whilst other venues for the new building are available.

The 20/20 cricket was a low scoring affair with the Football club team struggling to 31 all out despite a great performance with the bat by Lee Normanton.
The Cefn Social team also struggled with the lively wicket but managed to knock off the runs to win by 3 wickets.
It is hoped that the Merthyr Town FC cricket section will play a few more matches during the summer.
