Pontypridd Youth are gearing up for the new season, ready to launch a concerted effort to reclaim the Blues A League title and National Youth Cup.

A new captain and vice-captain have been nominated to lead Ponty Youth into the forthcoming campaign.

Outside half or full back Rhodri Smith will wear the captain's armband with prop Ioan Evans as his deputy. Both players are products of the Pontypridd mini and junior sections and bring with them a strong work ethic and leadership qualities to their roles.

Coaches Simon Bayliss and Andy Price continue to mentor the Youth squad, with Ivor Evans coming into the set-up as Team Manager and Ian Dennet also joining the management team.

Pre-season training for Pontypridd Youth gets underway on Tuesday 18th July. > Rugby > Development > Youth Rugby > New captains to lead Ponty Youth
