Another successful Minithon

Merthyr hosted its annual Run, Walk or Crawl 5km event on Sunday 23rd October and although numbers were down on last season's inaugural event it was a day enjoyed by all who took part.

Councillor Brent Carter, a regular Merthyr Town FC supporter, started the race at Rhydycar on the Taff Trail and soon the route was full of MTFC players, supporters and families enjoying the scenery on a crisp autumn day.

Danny Carter was present along with captain Steve Williams and physio Russ Jones plus more players to show their support for the Academy teams at Merthyr Town FC.

The race was a deadheat this year between defending champion Andrew Murphy and Liam Bodenham. Lloyd Type finished third.

Our thanks to the players & staff for supporting the Minithon 2011.

Funds are still welcome to support both Merthyr Town FC and its Academy teams, if you wish to donate please contact Mark Evans on
