St­eff’s day a big success

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple at­tended the sec­ond an­nual St­eff’s Fun Day at St Dog­maels on Sun­day.

The event was in memory of 32-year-old lo­cal foot­ball club stalwart St­eff Thomas, who was tragically killed in a road ac­ci­dent in Oc­to­ber 2017.

Morn­ing rain cleared and left a bright and warm day for the event that fea­tured a large num­ber of stalls and other at­trac­tions at the School Field foot­ball ground.

The cen­tre­piece was a game be­tween newly-crowned Cost­cut­ter Ceredi­gion League cham­pi­ons St Dog­maels and The Welsh Fans XI, con­tain­ing play­ers from var­i­ous parts of Wales and re­sult­ing in a nar­row win for Saints.

Be­fore kick-off, the teams lined up as Cardi­gan Rugby Club Male Voice Choir led the singing of the na­tional an­them.

Among a huge col­lec­tion of items auc­tioned dur­ing the day was a shirt signed by the Wales rugby team and do­nated by Shane Wil­liams, a signed dart­board from for­mer PDC World Cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal­ist Jamie Lewis and a signed shirt do­nated by the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Wales.

The event raised sub­stan­tial funds for the lo­cal foot­ball club and also Gol, The Wales Foot­ball Sup­port­ers Char­i­ta­ble Or­gan­i­sa­tion, the aim of which is to help un­der-priv­i­leged chil­dren wher­ever Wales play.
