Scarlets launch new away kit at Aberystwyth

10 August 2018

The Scarlets Rugby Team will be launching their new away kit on Aberystwyth Promenade on Monday 13 August 2018.

The unveiling of the new away kit will take place at 2.30pm at the Bandstand by Scarlets players Jonathan Davies, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Ken Owens, Steff Evans and Rhys Patchell.

The kit launch will be part of a family fun day on the prom from 11am until 4.30pm.

As one of the Scarlets’ community partners, Aberystwyth University will be present at the bandstand too for the day’s activities with touch rugby taster sessions on the beach, the ‘Watt Bike’ challenge and free photobooth.

Aberystwyth University’s partnership with the Scarlets rugby club also includes a Healthy Eating Initiative aimed at schoolchildren, which was launched in 2016.

The University also sponsors Scarlets player Wyn Jones who studied Agriculture and Animal Science at the Institute of Biological, Envrionmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS). A full-time professional rugby player, Wyn has made 64 appearances with the Scarlets team, and has also played for his country at the 2017 Summer Tour and the 2018 Six Nations.
