We Wore Scarlet - Llanelli Old Players Association
This book is dedicated to the future of the Rugby game. All proceeds will go to the Llanelli Schoolboys Fund.Five years ago we were approached by the Schoolboys Committee for help with their finances as the WRU annual grant was just £500 - the price of a coach trip for one game only. The rest of the funding needed to keep them going was raised by parents. There was nothing left over to finance the Schoolboys' future. So we, the old players association, funded them, as was our duty, in order to keep the grass roots of the game in Llanelli healthy and growing.
We Wore Scarlet is published to raise funds for the schoolboys of the area so that they are never again put in the current situation – the possibility of being dissolved after one hundred and six years.
The book is a compilation of funny rugby stories by ex-Scarlet Old Players, from British Lions, Internationals and Club players. A total of 4,400 players have worn the scarlet jersey: whether you played one game or four hundred, you are in the book.
Geraint Thomas, the author, along with Les Williams, has produced a unique gem of a book.
Book price is £10.00 plus postage and packing.
