Ebbw Vale RFC have announced that Ashley Sweet will lead the side into the 2019-20 Principality Premiership campaign. Head Coach Greg Woods said, ““Ashley led the squad superbly well last year for long periods and is the right choice of leader for the up coming campaign. His experience and way he conducts himself is everything that a Premiership captain should be and his rapport with referees is excellent. He will be supported by an experienced group of core players who are all hungry for success at the club and I look forward to working with Ashley over the next season”.
Ashley said, “As a player who has been at the club for the best part of 10 years it is a fantastic honour to be asked to captain the Steelmen for the 2019/20 season. Although only covering for the legend Ronny Kynes, I have enjoyed leading the club for the biggest part of last season. With the support of the boys I am looking forward to next season and leading this proud team and town!”
