The Merthyr Athletic and Association…


The Merthyr Athletic and Association Club. We congratulate the Merthyr soccer club on the success of their Easter matches with Notts Forest, Middlesboro, and Paulton Rovers, and the record crowds who watched these games shew unmistakably that the Soccer code has caught on, and, the continued support of the public is now assured. The majority of the directors are among the lessees of the Penydarren Park, havingsethe ground for 21 years, and as the completion of the ground with good stand accommodation is so essential, we understand that arrangements are being considered for the formation of a Limited Liability Company, which would have control of both undertakings. There are numbers of townspeople who would support such a scheme, and from enquiries we have made we find that a meeting is to be held on Tuesday next to complete all the necessary arrangements, and the chairman of directors of the Company, Mr* W. B. Harris, and the secretary, Mr. W. T. Jones, will be pleased to supply any desired information. We cannot help thinking that in the near future we shall regularly see crowds of 7,000 to 10,000 people in Penydarren Park, and the townspeople will readily understand what a great thing this will be for the trade of Merthyr and district. Soccerites will be pleased to hear that Bristol Rovers are playing .on the Park on Saturday next, and the club; hopes before the end of the season to play one or two more First League teams. We wish the Merthyr Athletic and Soccer Club every success, and we sincerely hope they will get the support they deserve.
