Our friend Liz Mellor passed away suddenly and unexpectedly as just 36 years old.  Liz was a huge Ospreys supporter and was one of the most energetic and happiest people you could meet  – she lit up a rugby stadium, let alone a room with her presence.

Liz collapsed and died after suffering with a bad cough and chest over the Christmas period and leaves behind her husband Mike, as well as three beautiful children.

Liz’s friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs and to support the family financially during this difficult time.

We can now confirm exact details of pickup location times for the Boxing Day bus:

14:30 Bridgend – McArther Glen Cinema Bus Stop
15:00 Port Talbot – British Legion bus stop
15:15 Neath – Outside Train station
15:45 Swansea – Liberty Stadium

Please be at the bus stop 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time so we don’t incurr any delays waiting for stragglers (who WILL be left behind!)

We will have some Ospreys flags to hand out for those who want to be seen in the stadium!

Return time will be approx 60-90 minutes after the final whistle (or the time it takes to get a pint in the Barn afterwards – whichever is longest)

 

Congratulations

Congratulations to Morgan Morris on winning his first OSCA!

After much shennanigans in the voting (its good to see that we can electronically check if you’re interfering with ballot papers so to speak), we can confirm that the dynamic backrow forward is the people’s favourite for November.
