Bangor Rugby Club is the home to the “Little Stars”, a group of children aged 3 to the end of school year 1. Through rugby the children will learn social skills like sportsmanship, team spirit and cooperation. They learn to respect each other and play games to enhance their concentration but most of all have great fun. It was started by the late Irfon Williams (Team Irfon) and continues to flourish under their coach Elwyn Williams. They meet at the club (Cae Milltir near Llandegai) on Sunday mornings and parents are very welcome to bring their children along to join in.

RGC player and Bangor’s WRU Hub Officer Joe Simpson, asked Elwyn Williams about the group and this is the response he got.

Joe - Why did you start coaching with the Little Stars?

Elwyn – I got involved with the Little Stars in 2017. My son wanted to start playing rugby after watching it on the television so I took him to a training session on a Sunday morning. After a few weeks I started to help out with some coaching as he was by himself and it went from there.

Joe- What is your rugby background?

Elwyn – I played at school and then went on to play senior rugby as a lock for Holyhead.

Joe – What do you want to achieve with the little stars in the next few years?

Elwyn – I want the children to learn the basics of the game whilst having lots of fun and to be ready to play touch rugby when they move up to the under 7s team.

Joe – Have you got any fun facts about the little stars?

Elwyn – Each child’s skills and abilities are different but they all smile no matter what the weather is. This for me is what the Little Stars is all about.
