Resolven AFC Do the Double

Resolven AFC – Double Promotion 

Eventually it was a successful season for both Resolven AFC 1st and 2nd senior teams, with both securing promotion on the final day of the season. After being relegated the season before last the 1st team were keen to bounce back up as soon as possible and the disappointment of missing out on promotion by 1pts last season

It was definitely the target this year. It was a good start to the season as well as a good end, but a dip in form just before Christmas made for a tight finish!

April 27th 2019 Resolven AFC v Glais AFC ‘The Promotion Decider” A win for Resolven would mean promotion on goal difference, likewise for Glais! But a draw would see Godregraig take 2nd position and promotion, after Harp Rovers had already confirmed the championship -eventually finishing 6pts clear of Resolven.


A full crowd on the Park Field saw Resolven run out deserved 4-1 winners. Resolven 2nds also claimed 2nd place and a promotion into reserve division 2 after an alteration to the reserve divisions, splitting the league into two separate groups. It’s fantastic to see the club doing well, with two sides running and over 40 boys signed on. There is a great atmosphere within the club and a lot of young potential coming through to accompany the more established players. The club will definitely be looking to build on the success of this season for the future. If anyone over the age of 16 is interested in joining this great club for the coming season, and would like to find out more information, please contact Alister Wheeler via Facebook.

Also If there are any local businesses out there that would be interested in sponsoring Resolven AFC it would be much appreciated. There are different levels of sponsor packages that could be discussed to suit, so please get in touch.

Thank you.
