South Wales Ironmen have lined up two exciting pre-season friendlies ahead of the 2017 season.
The friendlies will give supporters an early opportunity to view the superb facilities on offer at Wern Sports Park.
First up on Sunday 5th February are North Wales Crusaders. Ex-Scorpion Head Coach Mike Grady has taken over the reigns at Crusaders assisted by former Scorps player Johnny Leather. The sides are also scheduled to meet the week prior at the Queensway Stadium Wrexham in the first game of the pre-season double header.
The following week will see Super League giants St Helens send a side to Merthyr. Ironmen Director Marc Lovering is delighted Saints have committed to the game
” I am grateful to Neil Kilshaw and Mike Rush for fitting us in to their pre-season schedule. With Calvin Wellington and Regan Grace at the club already they know the sort of talent we are capable of producing in South Wales. We’ll be looking to take a couple of sides up to St Helens later in the season and I’m sure Neil will be casting an eye over some of our youngsters when the opportunity arises. “
“It’s great for Merthyr and for Wern Sports Park to have a name like St Helens in town and hopefully the games against Crusaders and St Helens will entice plenty of people down to Wern Sports Park to see what we are all about.”
