Wales Manager Coaches at Latham Park

Wales Manager, Chris Coleman attended at Latham Park today, hopefully silencing the loud criticism that befell him for failing to arrive for last week's training session. A beautiful day showed the newly seeded Latham Park pitch in its best light and the college students thoroughly enjoyed their two hours of schooling.

Newtown AFC's partnership with Coleg Powys has been extended this season, which is why the club were keen to allow the pitch to be used long before it is properly ready after re-seeding. The partnership will see a new Under 19s side being formed, consisting of a lot of the players who trained on the pitch today, which will compete in the North Wales section of the Welsh Premier League Youths. Its a large commitment from the players from across Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire who will make up the large squad needed, and the Club is anxious to show its commitment to the college, and to the local community in general, through the use of facilities.
