CLUB NEWS: Underwood thank Newport

Next season will see the South West and Wales region return to seven clubs, as Newport CSC and Underwood Flyers go their seperate ways.

Chris Wright, secretary of Underwood, said: “The clubs have decided, by mutual consent, to part company at the end of this season.

“We would like to thank Newport for their help in our time of need and it was always our intention to return to the league as a stand alone club as soon as we were in a position to do so.

“This year, our group is growing rapidly and going from strength to strength. With many new volunteers on board, we are certain of a full committee in place ready for next season.

“Tuesday evening we held an hours family session after training, which saw a few brave parents get on bikes with their children. We understand that kids don’t just want to race race all the time, they want fun too.

“It was smiles all round and we intend to run a family night on regular basis in the future”.
