Hi again, does anyone remember the Rhyd Boys Football Club?

I played for them 1967-1971. At the time it was run by Cliff and Dai Bethel. What happened to them? Are they still around?

Does anyone have any photos

I can remember some of the players; Terry Jones, Wattsy, Neil Prosser, Gareth Davies, Jeff Williams ("Yash"), Dai Robinson, Anthony Andrews ("Fab"), Brian Clarke, Neil Evans ("Nelly"),"Carpy", "Red" and Cliff's son (can't remember his name).

It would be graet if other members can shine more light on this topic.

Cheers,

Daizulu

Dai Bethel died some years ago, i think Cliff Bethel is still alive and made Lifetime president of Tredegar Football Club not so long ago.

What a footballer Jeff Wiiliams was and a fantastic goalkeeper still lives in Tredegar and helps coach the young kids.

Hi Oldcefnlad,

I played with "Yash" for many years both at club and International level. The last time I seen him was at Neveille Hall Hospital he took my Mum there.

Hi Daizulu,

This is an old thread so I hope you will receive this. You're not Dai Neale are you as the only players who played for the Rhyd and went on to represent Wales was Dai Neale and Yash aka Jeff Williams. Yash went on to sign for Cardiff as a school boy but did not stay long with them. I captained the side during those dates. Can you remember playing Cardiff City at the rec? It would be good to hear from you.

Hi Shell you've knocked me sideways about Nelly Evans. When did he pass away? We were all in that year I used to knock around with Dai Rob, Fab, Nelly after we played football on a Saturday. Nelly was big into his music as I recall.
