October Newsletter 2011: -

LEAGUE CHAMPIONS - Mardy Tigers U.12's - It may seem strange that after just 2 months of the new season gone we already have new league champions. The league in their wisdom decided that the U.12's league would be split into 2 divisions but instead of 2 evenly numbered divisions we got 1 of 8 teams and another of 14. With Llanyrafon then dropping out it left just 7 teams in our division and thus a league which lasted just 2 months. It really beggars belief where some of these people on committees get their ideas from but hey league champions we are and congratulations to Gary and his tigers and good luck to both our U.12's teams start the cup competition which sees both divisions join together as one - WISE MOVE me thinks. It's been a bright start for our "Tiglets" too with our U.10's playing regular games and enjoying their introduction to the beautiful game on Sunday mornings. They've already travelled to Abertysswg, Hereford and Porthcawl and are looking to increase their squad size from an already healthy 12 girls. Our U.14's finish the month joint top of the league but are now the only unbeaten team in the league. The top 2 meet this coming Sunday @ Llanyrafon. Our U.16's have played just 3 games in the first 2 months and in a league of just 8 teams now it's not looking too healthy thanks in no small part to the DAFT 2 YEAR AGE BAND. Yet again people sitting on committees making decisions that can't work but too stubborn to reverse those decisions when clearly they ain't working folks. Our seniors @ P.I.L.C.S sit proudly at the top of the league with 6 wins out of 6 and already planning for top flight football next season.

The Gwent Development Centre is up and running and the tigers attending have settled in well and it can only benefit our club in the long term with players getting extra training sessions every Saturday. Not sure about the tactic boards for U.10's though, let's get the basics taught first I say.

Our Halloween Disco @ Goytre was a tremendous success and I'd like to thank everyone who supported the evening.

F.A.Cup Competition - Team managers will be selling envelopes for £10 each with each envelope then being awarded a team in this season's F.A. Cup. If your team wins the cup you'll win £300 with prizes too for the runners up and semi-finalists. See your manager and get yourself entered early.

Managers will also be asking players and parents about a possible end of season tour to Prestatyn to compete in The Mitre Ultimatch Cup. Please again see your manager for details.


U.10's & U.12's Christmas party will be held on December 10th @ Abergavenny Leisure Centre and involve an hour's swimming with inflatable, an hour's football in the sports hall followed by feeding time upstairs to finish.

Christmas Party @ P.I.L.C.S - 16th December 2011 - 7 - 11 p.m. Tickets £3.00 Adults and £1 Tigers. Everyone is invited to P.I.L.C.S for a special Christmas Disco and a chance for the whole club to get together. Please book your tickets with Wayne Jeremiah A.S.A.P.

TIGER NEWS - Tuesday 4/10/11

We are a month into the season already and all our age groups have settled in well. David, Chris & Jane continue their hard work with the "tiglets" and with 12 signed up already it promises to be a great season. Having played several friendly fixtures in September last Sunday saw them travel to Llanyrafon for what was supposed to be a S.W.G.L. festival. Howver only the host club had a team so we played them in 4 games. Special mention to Eliza "Smiler" Atkins who made it to THE 50 CLUB. Our U.12's teams have been busy and indeed played each other twice in September with the first game a 1 v 1 draw showing everything good about our club and a fantastic future. We're the only club to have 2 teams in an age group in the whole of the S.W.G.L. and whilst the younger team will have to be patient and plan for next season our "ATEAM" are flying high in second place as we speak and aiming for top spot. Gary, Pete & Kevin continue to do a fine job with the girls at this age. Jon. & Chris have our U.14's squad in top form sitting top of the league and last Sunday smashing 8 past Cardiff City in Round 1 of The Tesco Cup. With 19 players on the books it's a juggling act but as the younger players are reminded next season they'll be the senior players. Great credit to Tony & Tracey who are doing a fine job with our U.16's squad. Only 2 weeks before the season started we weren't sure if we'd have a team yet the girls have come together and had 2 close matches with Troedyrhiw although what the league are thinking about when they give you back to back games this early in the season The LORD Only Knows!!! P.I.L.C.S Ladies have also made a tremendous start winning all 3 league games by huge margins and on Sunday they ran U.W.I.C. very close in the Welsh Cup before losing out by the odd goal in 7.

Details of this weekend's fixtures are available on our home page or from your managers.

Club Merchandise: - I've been asked by committee to put the prices on here for club merchandise. Back Packs are £13.00. Club Rain Jackets are £20.00 and full track suits are £35.00. Orders with full payment must be made with team managers who will then hand them over to me for ordering. The next order will be placed at the end of October so please be quick if you want anything.

Tiger News - Friday 16/9/2011

Tiger News: -

During the past week all our age groups have seen some action on the field. Our U.10's went to Troedyrhiw on Monday for some friendly games but had to face their U.12's which wasn't really what had been arranged. Having said that our "TIGLETS" performed well with Ffion and Abbie both getting a brace of goals. Our U.10's squad has now grown to 12 registered players which is great news and credit for this goes to David & Jane who work so hard promoting the club within the local schools. Gary took his U.12's A team to Usk and came away with 4 points thanks to a comfortable 9 v 0 win against Usk and a hard fought 1 v 1 draw against Maesglas. Our U.12's B team hosted Valleys United in a couple of friendly games giving Kevin & Pete an opportunity to give all 13 of their squad a game against good quality opposition. Match of the day came for our U.14's who won a superb game at Troedyrhiw 3 v 2 thanks to a hat-trick from inspirational captain Shauna Pentney. The importance of this victory cannot be over stated with both teams I'm sure will be in the top 3 come the end of May 2012. 2 wins from 2 starts for Jon & Chris' girls - KEEP IT GOING TIGERS!!!. Our U.16's game @ Thornhill was called off far too early in my opinion due to the weather but a friendly against P.I.L.C.S Ladies gave them much needed game time and a late Sophie goal sent them home smiling and looking forward to their league kick off this Sunday.

This Sunday 18/9/11: -

Our U.10's take on Abertysswg @ K.H.S. whilst both our U.12's sides are also at home on Sunday and indeed face each other in the most local of local derbies. 10's & 12's to meet @ K.H.S. @ 10.30a.m. Following these games our U.14's take to the K.H.S. pitch to take on Villa Dino in their S.W.G.L. match looking to remain on top of the league come Sunday evening. At Crickhowell F.C. on Sunday afternoon our U.16's will finally get their league campaign up and running with a tough game against Troedyrhiw U.16's. Special mention also for our seniors P.I.L.C.S Ladies who'll be looking to keep their superb start to the season going with a home game against Pontypridd.

Tiger News: -

Training for our U.14's & U.16's will be on Wednesday @ K.H.S. 6.00 - 7.30p.m.

Many of our U.10's & U.12's will be taking part in trials for the new Gwent Development Centre over the next 2 weeks so there won't be training for them. The first trial is on Thursday 6.00 - 8.00p.m. @ Llanyrafon. I hope to be able to give more details out on Sunday girls. 

Thursday, September 8
8/9/11 @ 11.30a.m. - Newsletter 1

8/9/11 - Our first newsletter of the new campaign kicks off with some good results from last Sunday as our U.12's teams both played their first league fixtures. Our "A" side beat Coed Duon 3 v 1 whilst our younger "B" side held Maesglas to a very creditable 0 v 0 draw. For some reason our league has seen fit to have an 8 team division and a 13 team division in the U.12's age group and despite my complaints it looks like they'll be sticking with it but "Watch This Space". Our U.14's beat Pontypridd 13 v 1 @ K.H.S on the opening day of their season with Grace hitting 5. The U.16's division was put back a week to give clubs the opportunity to register more players. Again this season players will be contacted during the week regarding the next fixture with: - Gary - U.12's A, Kevin - U.12's B, Jon - U.14's, Tracey - U.16's & Dave - U.10's.

This Sunday sees our U.12's A team @ Villa Dino, U.12's B team at home to Coed Duon - T.B.C. U.14's @ Troedyrhiw & U.16's @ Thornhill - Good Luck to you all.

Just a reminder that £8.00 monthly subscriptions will this season be collected by your team manager on match days. September fees are now due please.

PLEASE NOTE - Thornhill U.16's v Mardy Tigers U.16's is OFF on Sunday due to the weather. ALL Cardiff pitches have been called off.

Another Season Nears Its' End. - 13/5/2011 @ 11.00a.m.

I can't believe another season is coming to an end. It only seems like yesterday when we were kicking off a brand new campaign with high hopes for the 9 months of competitive football that lay ahead of our 5 age groups.

However there's still so much to play for in the remaining week or so with 2 league cup finals, our U.16's still fighting for league runners up spot and not to mention the small matter of The U.K. Tesco Cup Finals and a semi-final tie with CELTIC at St. Andrews, the home of Birmingham City Football Club. Already tucked away in the trophy cabinet, which in answer to one "SADDO" who wrote an e-mail to the S.W.G.L. asking if it was sale - "In Your Dreams SADDO", are the U.14's & U.16's Gwent Tesco Cups plus the Welsh U.16's Tesco Cup. Add to this runners up spot in the U.14's league and should be also in the U.18's league although the league in their wisdom have deducted 3 points which could cost them this position to Valleys United. Our U.10's has trebled in size whilst our U.12's finished a very respectable seventh out of 18 and reached the cup quarter-finals. International honours for: - Shauna, Sophie, Rhian, Katie, Zoe & Mali and all in all it's not been a "BAD SEASON" has it tigers?

"Tiger News" - Friday 25/3/2011 @ 10.30a.m.

A busy week for the tigers began last Sunday in great style with our U.14's & U.16's both winning the Gwent Tesco Cup @ Goytre F.C. As we celebrated with a pint in the club we got news that our U.12's had beaten Troedyrhiw 2 v 1 inflicting only the second defeat of the season on the champions elect and proving that on their day they can beat anyone. It must be said that our U.12's have a large squad of mixed abillities and the future looks very bright as our age groups move forward to next season and beyond. 3 of our tigers: - Rhian, Mali & Katie then travelled to Belgium to play for Wales U.17's in 2 friendly games against the host country. All 3 played a part in the trip winning caps and enhancing the tigers growing reputation at this level. News then came through on Wednesday of our U.14's captain Shauna getting selected for the Wales U.16's squad to play in The Celtic Nations Cup @ Treforest in April. Alana is on standby for the squad so fingers crossed Smurf. Traiining last night and then it's off to Cardiff tomorrow as the tigers cheer on Wales against England at The Millenium Stadium on what should be a great day out for the club. Matches on Sunday will then complete a busy tiger week, but an enjoyable one at that.

"The Tiger Newsletter" - 23/2/2011 @ 6.00p.m.

We start off this week by congratulating Shauna and her U.14's team for reaching The Gwent Tesco Cup Final following a titanic battle in the semi-final @ Llanyrafon last Sunday. It was apparently an exciting occasion both ON & OFF the pitch. THE FINALS DAY will be @ Goytre Football Club on 20/3/2011 with The Tigers U.14's playing Cwmbran Celtic U.14's @ 1.00p.m. to be followed by The Tigers U.16's v Villa Dino Christchurch @ 2.45p.m. It promises to be another special day for the whole club and let's hope that the girls can repeat last season's efforts when they collected both cups at the same venue.

I'd like to be able to confirm details for our U.16's Welsh Cup match against Northop Hall on 6/3/2011 but despite making several requests for information from The F.A.W. I'm stiil waiting for a response.We're hoping to book a coach at a cost of £5.00 per seat, including players, but until we get a venue this is proving difficult.

The club would like to extend a warm welcome to our new signings from Penydarren U.16's & Newport County U.18's. Enjoy your time with "The Tigers" girls.

LOTTO - Have a go on our weekly LOTTO bonus ball game. See Lorraine @ training, pick a number 1 - 49 - £1.00 a go and if your number is the bonus ball on Saturday you win 50% of all takings plus a book of tickets for a chance to win A Holiday For 4 in Teneriffe.

Tiger Newsletter - 17/2/2011 @ 12.30p.m.

The winter weather continues to play havoc with fixtures all over the country. Only our U.16's took to the pitch last Sunday but what a fine result they had beating Thornhill 5 v 0 @ Crickhowell. Could I please remind parents that when we are due to play away that we're in the hands of our opponents as to when a game is called OFF. Our managers then have the job of contacting parents to inform them and they do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Texting is the quickest way of doing so but please note that delays on receiving texts do happen so it's always a good idea if there is bad weather about for you to contact the manager before you set off for games.

"TIGER NEWS" - Friday 11/2/11 @ 10.00a.m.

Tiger News: -

Forming a senior Ladies team has always been an aim of mine but with the lack of a "Home Base" would be impossible. With this in mind I've been asked to form a team at P.I.L.C.S Football Club in Pontypool next season. Our U.18's have played their now for the past 2 seasons and have enjoyed not only the fine playing surface but also the changing rooms are second to none. Add to this the use of the clubhouse and I feel it would be a superb opportunity to set up a senior team there. Club name and team colours are to be decided upon but I'd really feel obliged to come under the P.I.L.C.S umbrella as far as that is concerned but ALWAYS keeping "The Tigers" nickname. Mardy Tigers would remain the same but be linked with P.I.L.C.S Football Club @ Senior Level. Just to let you know that P.I.L.C.S Football Club are currently on top of the Gwent County Division 1 with real ambitions of getting into The Welsh League and all that that brings as far as funding goes. Add to that a senior ladies team and a partnership can only benefit everyone. Speaking on behalf of our U.18's let me say that we've been made very welcome at P.I.L.C.S which as you know certainly hasn't been the case at clubs in Abergavenny. Any questions please don't hesitate to contact me anytime but let's all look forward to a long and bright future for "The Tigers".

The U.16's girls Welsh Cup Semi-Final draw has set up a replay of last season's CUP FINAL when we face Northop Hall Girls F.C. on March 6th. A special day is promised and whilst the venue of the game hasn't been announced yet it's sure to be in Mid Wales somewhere.

Our LOTTO game has finally been won after 19 weeks by Lorraine. Thanks to everyone who supported the game and please be aware that a new weekly "Bonus Ball" game will begin next week.

Wales v England Rugby Competition Results: -16 sheets have been returned out of 60 with the results as follows: - 3 Winners who all predicted the correct score - Shauna Pentney, Gareth Cleverly & Lisa Bowden - £33.50 won by each of them.

Welsh Award For Tiger Ellie.
Thursday 16th of July was a proud day for former tiger Ellie Curson and her family as she received the Welsh U.16's female player of the year award at a special ceremony in Cardiff attended by Welsh legend Ian Rush. Ellie has not only represented Wales this season but she captained the side in the tri-nations tournament in Ireland. Now playing @ Bristol Academy Ellie is still a frequent visitor to tiger training sessions to catch up with her many friends who it must be said are all proud of her too. Well done Elz and good luck as you move up to the U.17's squad where she'll join another former tiger Hadders.

Shrewsbury International Football Tournament

Tigers @ Shrewsbury: - Aug. 6th - 8th.

Day 1 - 13 tigers travelled to Shrewsbury on Wednesday morning for a 3 day trip staying at the exclusive Shrewsbury School. The squad arrived in plenty of time to settle in and prepare for their first match against old rivals C.Y.P. Wales, a team selected from many clubs throughout Wales.A bright start by the tigers saw them lead at the interval thanks to a goal from Jonesy. However their opponents long ball Wimbledon style football and not pretty to watch caught the girls out in the second half with 2 quick goals. However the tigers fought back and looked like getting a draw which would have been the very least they deserved when Amy struck with 5 minutes left. However the old saying " You're most vulnerable just after you score" came true when C.Y.P. nicked it almost from kick off. Having played much the better football the tigers returned to base and lick their wounds ahead of an important day 2.

Day 2 - There were no negative thoughts at breakfast, only talk of 2 wins today and a place in the final tomorrow. Sharing breakfast were boys from Manchester United & Cardiff City. The coach arrived in plenty of time to prepare for the first of 2 very important fixtures against Aberystwyth Academy. The wounded tigers were magnificent and totally outplayed their shell shocked opponents with a 4 v 0 victory thanks to goals from: - Amy, Kate, Zoe & Kayleigh. It really could and should have been a lot more. American opposition in F.C. New York now stood in our way for the very first time knowing victory would book us a cup final place tomorrow. A goalless first half but no nerves as the tigers knew patience would be the key against a physical outfit. A goal from Jonesy in the second minute after the break was followed up by a superb strike from kate to seal victory. Spirits were high on their return to Shrewsbury School with Big & Little Wayne captaining sides in a game of football rounders. Jade made 100 new friends, all 9 year old Manchester United players and joined them for a training session. Early to bed, maybe not!!! to prepare for big game tomorrow.

Day 3 - Sunshine accompanied the squad on an early morning stroll in the school grounds before breakfast as the girls looked forward to their re-match with C.Y.P. Wales. 12.30 p.m. was kick off time but this was delayed due to a nasty injury in the match before ours. When the final did get started the tigers began strongly and a goal after 10 minutes from Jonesy, her third of the tournament, settled the nerves. The girls looked comfortable in posession but again a lump forward was to be their downfall just before half-time making it 1 v 1. The second period saw quite a few chances go missing for the tigers in this match of very contrasting styles. Play was held up for 30 minutes for a bad injury to a C.Y.P. player with an ambulance needed to take her to hospital. Penalties would decide this one. 4 v 4 after 5 each it went to sudden death. 5 v 5 after 8 each. A tiger miss gave their opponents a chance but a superb save from replacement keeper Jade was ruled out as the referee's assistant ruled she'd come off her line. This time the ball hit the net to seal victory for the representative outfit. Medals were presented by former Wales manager Mike Smith.

A fantastic trip may have ended in disappointment but as usual Mardy Tigers made many friends and admirers for their style of play on the field and superb attitudes off it.WELL DONE TIGERS - YOU WERE A CREDIT TO THE CLUB.
