A Step Back in Time – Introduction

A Step Back in Time

The newspaper reports in this section are from the Carmarthen Journal, the Carmarthen Times and the Welshman. These match reports were included in home match programmes for five seasons between 2006 and 2011 along with team photographs for a particular decade.

Many newspaper reports are very brief and for a large number of games there were no reports at all. I therefore selected the ones I believed were worth reading and which had a fair amount of content.

The club has been fortunate that the editors of the Carmarthen Journal have allowed us to print these reports in our programmes and they have also agreed to allow us to add them to our web site.

More reports may be added in the future as they can now be viewed online up to the year 1920 at welshnewspapers.llgc.org.
