RIP Horace Matthews

It was with sadness that we heard that Horace Matthews one of our great former players has died, aged 94.  One of the legendary Matthews family of Cwm who played for us in that great team of the 50s, Horace was an excellent, hard-as-granite back row forward. He represented Monmouthshire and played in the combined Ebbw Vale and Abertillery XV that played the New Zealand All Blacks. After his playing days ended, Horace served on the club committee for many years.

Our deepest sympathies go to Horace’s family.
