Welcome to the Official Website of Tredegar Town AFC Website created & hosted by Jaylo Media. 2014 TREDEGAR TOWN AFC HISTORY Tredegar Town AFC was formed over 40 years ago in 1968 by its present life president Cliff Bethel to provide a recreation for those young men who preferred playing association football to Rugby Union, the team was originally known as the Rhyd Boys Club and was known throughout Wales for sending players to represent Wales at school boy and Boys Club of Wales level. In 1983 the team changed to Tredegar Town AFC and moved on to senior level football initially plying their trade in the North Gwent Division 1 league rising to a premier division place sometimes in the eighties. With the introduction of the Welsh league Pyramid of non-league clubs Tredegar gained a place in the more challenging Gwent County FA League and played their games at the recreation ground. The team steadily gained credibility throughout the nineties rising from division 3 to division 2 then to the top division, then in season 1997/98 they won the Gwent County League and applied to the Welsh League for                         Pictured: Rhyd Hall membership and joined the Welsh league in season 1998/99.       After one season they finished runners up in the league and gained promotion to Welsh       League Division 2 in 2000/01 and remained in this division until they were relegated in     season 2009/2010.
