Youth Development League Upper Age Group at Cheltenham

An amazing season for NSAC continues. NSAC have formed part of Team Avon for many years, but a decision was made to develop a stand-alone team for the 2019 season, as the next step in the development of the Club. Aiming to give athletes more opportunities to compete, and to continue the ethos and camaraderie that has been the trademark of the club. Its fair to say that the first season was anticipated as being a gentle introduction, it has proved to be anything but!

With the brilliant efforts of athletes, team managers, officials and parents, NSAC have delivered strong teams for all 3 fixtures (Aberdare, Hereford, and for the final event, at Cheltenham. The result, a quite outstanding 2nd place finish in the League, beating Team South Wales and Team East Wales, to name but two, and losing out only to the extremely strong Cheltenham Club.
