“This was our first event this season in West Wales with Swansea City, it was the largest number of pupils that we have had attending a club event, this shows the progress the Welsh Campaign is making. we had a fantastic response from the teachers and pupils after the event, the personal experiences and messages the players gave will have a lasting impact on everyone who attended”.
