As Llandysul Cricket Club prepares for the opening game of the season in Division Two of the South Wales Association with a visit to Maesteg on Saturday the Teifisiders have been boosted by the arrival of two talented players.

The star attraction is undoubtedly opening batsman Rhydian Harries who hails from the Crymych area. The 26-year-old right-hander has also had a spell with Whitland and represented Wales at various levels.

With the Teifisiders in need of an additional spinner Harries fills this role although he is unlikely to be available this weekend as he is likely to appear at outside half for Newcastle Emlyn Rugby Club in a Division Two West relegation battle against Aberavon Quins.

A second big signing for Llandysul is Andrew Edwards from Carmarthen Wanderers. The right-handed all-rounder is in his early 20’s and highly regarded in the league.

On the debit side the Teifi Valley club has lost fast bowler Rhodri Jones whose work has taken him away from the area.
