NEATH RUGBY CLUB STATEMENT FROM JEREMY MILES, AM FOR NEATH

Neath RFC is an illustrious part of Neath’s history and a crucial part of its future. None of us want to see anything stand in the way of the club’s success in the year ahead.

I strongly support the club’s supporters in their desire to see a resolution to its current difficulties which enables future investment, a vision for its supporters and first class rugby on the pitch.

I have followed with dismay the financial struggles in the courts of the company which currently stands behind the club. It isn’t right that the company’s problems should jeopardise rugby in Neath. What matters is the rugby, the club and the town and I would urge the owners of the company to prioritise the interests of the club and its supporters over the financial disputes they are facing. I am sure they would have the gratitude of supporters if they did so.
