Chairman's End of Season report 2023/24

Dear Members, Supporters, Players, Staff, and Friends of Taffs Well Football Club,

As we reflect at the close of another season, I can't help but feel grateful to all the people who have built this community of not just football supporters, but good people. This past year has been a journey of highs and lows and most importantly, a testament to the resilience and spirit of this special club.


It is fair to say we've faced our fair share of hurdles, yet we've found moments of success and celebration. The end of the season brought relief as our men's team secured our JD Cymru South status, a hard-fought battle that saw our players dig deep and rise to the challenge.


Under the leadership of our new management team, we've witnessed the emergence of fresh talent. Standout performances against Goytre United and Afan Lido ensured our retention of JD Cymru status, a testament to the resilience and determination of our players. I know I am not alone in feeling our play was much better than the results were showing. I got fed up of opposition managers and officials saying we were too good to go down and the results often did not reflect our play. However we secured our place and finished on the same points as the year before with 6-8 key players having left. That was no mean feat.


The past six months have seen progress off the field. Thanks to the dedication of our members and volunteers, our facilities and governance are showing continuous improvements. With the development of a strategic five-year plan, we are charting a course for an exciting future for Taffs Well FC.


The first ever Wellwomen have had a fantastic season to date. Their season still has a couple of games left to play and we wait to see if they can secure promotion. The establishment of our first-ever Taffs Well Women's team is a testament to our commitment to inclusivity and growth.


We have also experienced huge loss. The passing of Norma, our dedicated Secretary of 30 years, has left a void in our hearts and our club. Norma's absence is deeply felt, and her contributions will be forever cherished. We are grateful to the huge amount of support and tributes paid across Welsh football and we hope she knew the affection people had towards her.


As we look to the future, there are areas we are keen to focus upon. Immediate attention is needed for our facilities, and seeking investment is crucial for financing improvements both on and off the pitch. We must continue to engage with new and existing supporters, striving to be a source of pride for our community.


However there is a lot to be excited about. We are looking to expand the teams under the umbrella of Taffs Well even further this summer with more opportunities for local people, both older and younger to enjoy their football.


In closing, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our supporters, volunteers, players, staff, and everyone connected with the club. Your unwavering dedication and support have been the driving force behind everything we do. Together, we are custodians of the the legacy of Taffs Well FC and I look forward to continuing our exciting journey ahead.


We look to a new season, filled with hope, determination, and hopefully a lot of wins and good times.


Warm regards,


Kevin Francis
