Following a late postponement of last weeks game against Lampeter the Quins young guns will now take the field at Parc y Deri, Abergwili for the first local derby of the season when neighbours Carmarthen Athletic come to visit on Saturday 11th September.
In what is always a keenly contested game this will be a stern test for the young Quins side.
Cenydd Powell coach of the youth said “There is an air of excitement amongst the squad to get a competitive game going and you cannot ask for more than a local derby! We have prepared well during the week and will be looking for the boys to give a performance. Its a big step for the boys but they have given everything in training just as they will on Saturday.”
“They are a proud bunch of boys many of whom have been together for many years coming through the ranks of the Quins mini and juniors and as a coaching team we cannot be anything but proud of them also. They are a credit to themselves and the club. Regardless of what the result is Saturday we know they will leave absolutely everything on the field.”
Kick off at Abergwili is at 2.30pm and we hope to see many of you there as possible.
This coming Saturday will see the newly formed Quins Youth (Under 18) take the field in a competitive game. Following the recent announcement to change the age range of youth rugby by the Welsh Rugby Union, the club has been extremely fortunate that last seasons Under 16’s coaches have stepped up to continue their coaching of this fine band of players.
Training has been excellent over the last month or so with players showing real commitment that will stand them in good stead for wearing the famous Cardinal, Amber and Black of the Quins for the 2021/2022 season.
Being a young side this will be a real test of character for players and coaches alike but from what we have seen in training they will not let the club down one bit due to the fact of how proud they are of themselves. Under the expert guidance of former 1st XV player Gary Evans, Cenydd Powell and Wayne Proctor the squad is chomping at the bit to get started.
This week the young guns of the Quins entertain Lampeter in Abergwili in what is a league fixture and we would urge our supporters to make the short journey to Abergwili to give the squad as much encouragement as possible.
With a young small squad there are places available for anyone who would like to try rugby or wants to return to the game and you can contact the coaches Gary (07855 769744) or Cen (07786 373697) for a chat and specific training arrangements.
Kick off Saturday is 2.30pm at Abergwili. We hope you can make and watch what could be the next generation of Mighty Quins.
As the season comes to an end for our Youth team, as they take on Tumble Youth on Saturday, win, lose or draw this has been a successful season. With one league game left they have already been crowned winners of the Carmarthenshire League Plate and will be presented with this award following the completion of the game on Saturday.
These players are the next generation of Quins players and hopefully we will see a few of them turning out for the Senior squad in the near future.
Kick off on Saturday @ 2:30pm at Tumble RFC if you want to join the players in celebrating this last game and their success.
