THE Friends of Ebbw Vale RFC has been set up by supporters Karl Offers, Steve Young and Colin Brennan.

The initiative has been started for those who would like to donate to the Steelmen, whether as a lump sum or on a monthly basis.

“The reason behind the venture is to help the club survive and thrive in the Premiership,” read a statement.

“Without millionaire backers, the vast majority of clubs in Wales rely on their loyal supporters, and we are no different.

"The Friends of EVRFC will gratefully accept as much as an individual’s pocket can afford!”

Call Offers on for more information.
