Rare programme on display

​A rare programme/leaflet from the first season of the club in 1944 - 1945 is now framed, and on display in the Friars Suite at the clubhouse.

​The programme is a double sided printed leaflet which depicts Carmarthen Athletic Club vs Swansea Youth Club on Easter Saturday 31st March 1945. The first club captain was Lyn Jones and the referee was Mr Tuder Lewis of Llanarthney.

​The front side shows details of the game featuring both teams and the reverse gives a fascinating insight into members & locals who were returning from military duties during WW2. The cost of the souvenir programme is shown as 3d. (three old pennies).

​The framed document shows the original front cover & a facsimile of the reverse side of the leaflet. The club is extremely grateful to the family of former forward, the late Les Randall for presenting this rare & precious document to the club.
