CHRIST COLLEGE’S BEN DAVIES (U6TH) AND OLLY LEWIS (YEAR 11) HAVE BOTH BEEN SELECTED FOR CRAWSHAYS WELSH U18 TO PLAY LLANDOVERY COLLEGE ON WEDNESDAY 18TH JANUARY
Olly and Ben have played CCB 1st XV this rugby season and have been leading players. Olly made an immediate impression coming back from injury at half term and breaking into the senior side at centre before settling at full back.
Ben has played for 2 seasons and enjoys the physical side to the game with barnstorming runs and bone crushing tackles.
Crawshays Welsh was founded in 1922 and has a long proud tradition. Today the Club is in the hands of hardworking amateur Officials, the Club is successful, happy and respected everywhere the game is played. The club has been on many tours with both the Senior and Youth XV’s including 15 French tours, tours to Italy, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Ireland, Spain, Latvia, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Thailand, plus seven – a side tournaments in Hong Kong, Dubai, Monte Carlo, Portugal and Scotland.
Some 90 years on since the first game the spirit of Crawshay’s remains the same. It is how the game is played on and off the field that matters and the friendships are made for life. In the fast changing world of rugby and sport the spirit of Crawshay’s never changes. Since 1922 over 400 players that have represented the Club at either Youth or senior level have gone on to represent the senior Welsh team. Other players have gone on to represent the senior International teams of England, Ireland, Scotland, Tonga, USA, Canada, Malta, South Africa and New Zealand. Notable current and recent International players who have played for Crawshay’s include Ryan Jones, Shane Williams, Dan Lydiate, Richard Hibbard, Rhys Gill, Andy Powell, Hallam Amos and Andrew Coombs of Wales and the England players Mauritz Botha and Tom Wood.
We wish Olly and Ben the best of luck and to enjoy the experience of playing for Crawshays Welsh Youth.
