Keiran Richards Mascots for Bedwas Game.

Keiran with Newport RFC

Keiran with Newport RFC

First published in Friends of Newport Rugby by

Ten year old Keiran Richards is a relative newcomer to rugby this season but under the guidance of our good friend Sue Williams, and the fact that he attends Eveswell Junior School, he is progressing well. We host a team from Eveswell every season without fail and it is a pleasure to know that one of our local schools is producing young players consistently.

Keiran arrived with his school team and took part in a pre match skills session and tag match before meeting his favourite player, Ashton Hewitt for a quick photo opportunity.

Keiran then led out the Black and Ambers with Captain Lee Beach and joined the team whilst they paid respects to Nelson Mandella and Mary Vile, both of whom had passed away.
