It featured players from the South Powys JFL and was organised and run by the league and Llandrindod JFC .

One junior volunteer coach said, ‘It is the most enjoyable festival I can ever remember with all the players and coaches we came across playing in the right spirit throughout. It was a wonderful atmosphere and can’t wait until the next. It was certainly a case of 100% participation and 100% enjoyment. It was great to see every player and team still there at the end smiling for the photo and not just two finalist teams with the other 14 teams already home’.
Thank you and congratulations to all for taking part in a very successful event and best wishes for the rest of the reason.
