Dylan Case

Every year the 320 affiliated clubs to the Welsh Rugby Union are invited to nominate individuals who make a difference to their club, their community, and the game of rugby for the WRU Community Volunteer of the Year Awards.

There are a variety of Award Categories to recognise and celebrate club volunteers.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of grassroots rugby, and we in Llanharan RFC are blessed with the number of selfless coaches, managers, kit persons, first aiders, pitch maintenance, clubhouse volunteers and committee members who give up their valuable time and energy to progress our club, with little or no reward expected or given.

Therefore, Llanharan RFC put forward several nominations across the categories.

You can imagine how many worthy nominees are considered before finalists are announced.

Llanharan RFC is proud to announce that we have a finalist in the category of Young Volunteer of the Year.

Dylan Case (17) is a familiar face at the club as both a current player in our Youth Squad and a coach of our U8s Minis Team.

His achievements include:

•    Assisted in mini & junior training at various age groups at Llanharan RFC and is currently one of the U8s coaches.

•    He plays an integral role in the creation of the digital match day programme and social media posts for the senior and youth teams.

•    For 2 years he operated the manual scoreboard for senior’s games and helped oversee the installation of the new digital board.

•    He has also assisted the senior team as a water boy for away games (before playing Youth games which now conflict).

•    During Covid he assisted in several community projects undertaken by Llanharan RFC.

•    He has assisted in the organisation and fundraising for the Cian Memorial Rugby Day annual event in memory of his brother.

•    For college (Bridgend College) he proactively volunteers to coach rugby to neurodiverse children and those with physical disabilities.

•    He is a qualified tag leader / early contact coach; and also, a level one referee and regularly assists in officiating appropriate fixtures.

The final takes place at The Principality Stadium on Friday 31st May.

I am sure you will join us in wishing Dylan the very best for the award ceremony, and also thanking each and every volunteer dedicated to our club.

If you would like to use your knowledge, experience and skills to benefit your community, please ask at the club for details on how you can become involved!!
