ACF National Rugby Championships take place in Brecon

 

On Saturday, members of the Army Cadet Force from across the country descended to Wales.

 

They made the journey to take part in the annual ACF National Rugby Championships.

 

The games took place in the Sevens format and there were two levels of entry; intermediate and senior.

 

Small crowds gathered under the sun at Christ College in Brecon and they were treated to the strongest rugby teams the ACF has to offer.

 

The Senior Wales ACF Team was made up of entrants from Gwent and Powys ACF, Dyfed and Glamorgan ACF, Clwyd and Gwynedd ACF. Their super effort saw them lift the trophy for the senior category.

 

The event couldn’t have happened without the volunteers from RFCA for Wales and the ACF, who are currently looking to recruit Adult Instructors in Wales. Click here for more information on becoming a volunteer.

 

There are over 40,000 Cadets aged between 12 to 18-years-old in more than 1,600 locations. It’s one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations, consisting of thousands of enthusiastic and committed volunteers, who inspire and lead young people to achieve things they never thought possible.

This Spring will see the completion of an extraordinary national cycling challenge by the Army Cadet Force (ACF) to raise funds for the Matthew Bacon Bursary. The Bursary enables young Army Cadets to take part in Outward-Bound Courses or Expeditions to provide opportunities that would otherwise be beyond their means.

A vacancy has arisen for a HQ Cadet Administrative Assistant (Crown Servant, Pay Band E1), covering the Counties of Clwyd and Gwynedd.
