Club History

Crymych RFC was established in 1984. For many years it had been thought locally that a club would be viable in the area. After all, young players who had shown promise at Ysgol y Preseli had to go to Cardigan, Narberth or Whitland to progress their careers. The very first match was played in September 1984 against Whitland’s 2nd XV and the youth XV and 2nd XV were soon started.

Many experienced players returned to Crymych and success came in 1986 when the Junior Union league was won. This success was also repeated in the following seasons. The club also enjoyed success in the Brewers Cup – the Welsh Districts competition.

From its inception, matches were played on a field owned by the Thomas family at London House. In 1992, in memory of Lloyd Thomas, the playing fields were officially named “ Parc Lloyd Thomas” and new changing rooms were also opened. In 1995 the club was admitted as member of the WRU and started playing in the National League.
Today there is a junior section running teams from U8 to U16. In 2003 the new clubhouse was opened and the club continues to develop.
