Ukraine visit to Merthyr
The visit has been arranged to celebrate the fact that Donetsk was founded by John Hughes who was born in Dowlais. The city was then called Hugheskova and a statue of John Hughes stands in the centre of the city to commemorate his acheivements in Ukraine.
The schoolchildren are all fans of Shakhtar Donetsk so let's hope we can arrange a friendly match in the not too distant future.
