- Abergavenny Town - Monmouthshires Team of the Year


Town are tops – it’s official

With their scheduled opponents in Welsh Cup action last weekend, Town faced a blank Saturday but still came out as winners. On Saturday evening they travelled to Chepstow Leisure Centre for the inaugural Monmouthshire County Council Sports Awards evening which covered all aspects of sport and ranged across eleven categories.  Town, who had received seven nominations from their supporters, scooped the ‘Team of the Year’ award and received the inscribed glass trophy and certificate both now proudly displayed at Penypound.

A club spokesman said. “We are very grateful to those who took the time and trouble to nominate us and of course to Monmouthshire County Council for introducing this initiative. The award reflects the outstanding season we enjoyed last year on the pitch, and also how Penypound Stadium is being rejuvenated with help of volunteer support, and is now home to not only our Welsh League side, but also our Reserves, our U18 and U16 sides, and a thriving ladies/girls section”.
