Stradey Stories by Alun Wyn Bevan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An entertaining celebration of the rich tradition of Llanelli R.F.C. Stradey Park, Llanelli: the field of rugby folklore, each blade of grass with its historic tale to tell, each clump of soil the stuff of legends. It has been home to the Scarlets and Sosban Fach for over a century; a home fit for heroes like Carwyn James, Phil Bennett and the Quinnells. But it is not only the stars of Stradey that are celebrated in this entertaining collection of portraits, reports and anecdotes, because Llanelli has always been the People's Club, as proud of its wise-cracking, one-eyed supporters as it is of its players. And between them, they have some great memories to share and secrets to tell!
