Aberavon Harlequins RFC
SILVER BALL WINNERS 2008/09

Aberavon Quins regained the coveted Worthington's Glamorgan County Silver Ball trophy after a gap of 28 years.
The game at Llanharan RFC's Dairy Field was better than the try-count of 1-0 showed and Llantwit Fardre, who led 3-0 after five minutes, were storming right back into it with ten minutes remaining with the Quins having a player in the sin-bin.

It was Llantwit who opened with a penalty by scrum half Carl Thomas, but Quins fly half Marc Sheppard soon levelled it and it was 3-3 at the interval. Both full backs, Michael Thomas of Llantwit and Mike Parfitt for the Quins showed good skills and Quins wing Steve Colarusso was dangerous. The wind was in the Quins favour as Sheppard added a hat-trick of penalties and Llantwit had two players yellow-carded before the Quins also had one, but in the latter period and three minutes from time, great Quins driving play saw their good No 8 Daniel Owen go over the line near the corner.
Llantwit somehow could not score, dropping the ball when the line loomed and even seven minutes of injury time failed to bring another score. Quins flanker and captain, Richard Wanklyn, received the Man of the Match trophy.
