We are happy to confirm that a Merthyr Town XI will be playing three further pre-season friendlies against Penrhiwfer AFC to celebrate the club's 50 year anniversary, Caerau Ely and Pontlottyn away.
Our Merthyr Town XI will consist of members from our development team and 1st team as we travel to three local league clubs. Academy Manager Philip Llewellyn said "It's a good opportunity for our younger squad members to play alongside members of the first team and come face to face with senior opposition. We are sure that it will help with their development and hopefully they will be more prepared if called upon to play for the first team"

Tuesday 11th July - Abergavenny Town (A) 7:30pm
Saturday 15th July - Cambrian & Clydach Vale (A) 1:30pm
