Matty John Re-arranged funeral arrangements

Bore da, good morning, 

Regrettably, in light of the lockdown in RCT, coming into force at 6pm this evening, we have had to revise our Club proposals for Friday.

It’s a matter for individuals to decide, but my interpretation of the restrictions is that, unless you live in RCT or have been invited by the family to the funeral itself, it will not be possible to travel to Glyntaff to pay tributes at the roadside as planned. 

So that we can mark the day and find some time for quiet reflection, we are proposing the following alternative arrangements tomorrow:

10:45 Meet at Pentyrch RFC. 
10:50 For those that wish to do so, a quiet walk around the 1st XV pitch has been suggested.
11:00 A socially distanced minute’s silence will be held near the centre of the 1st XV pitch.
11:15 A live feed from the service will be shown in the Clubhouse.

After the service, the Clubhouse will be open for the rest of the day as planned.

Whilst, personally, I find it very sad that many of us are now unable to line the roads in Glyntaff, I hope this small arrangement at the Club offers us an opportunity to get together and remember Matty on Friday.

Diolch, thank you,


Alun Davidson

Secretary | Pentyrch RFC
