About the Club
Trefelin Boys and Girls Club was formed in 1984 and has continually grown since then with strong junior and senior sections. The Club’s ethos is based on community and the development of “grass-roots” football to encourage and help promote children of all age groups, abilities, gender or ethnic group to participate in sport.
The club began playing their matches at the local park. During this period the committee channelled their efforts into raising funds for a permanent home, which resulted in the building of the Ynys Park playing field and pavilion complex in 1996. Since its opening, continuous improvements have been made at the ground with a new 100 seater stand completed in 2019.
Trefelin Boys and Girls Club has won numerous honours at senior level, the first was being crowned Port Talbot league 2nd division champions in the 1990/91 season. Continued success saw Trefelin become Port Talbot Premier League champions gaining promotion into the 2nd Division of the South Wales Amateur League in the 1994/95 season. In 1995/96 the Club won promotion into the first division as champions, a feat which they repeated again in 2006/07.
Trefelin won the FAW Trophy in 1999/2000 when they beat Bryntirion Athletic 6-2, and they lifted the John Owen cup in 2011/2012 and 2013/2014 seasons beating AFC Bargoed on both occasions.
Trefelin were promoted into the Welsh League after winning the newly formed South Wales Alliance league in 2015/16. After struggling to adjust to the league during the first season, the Club then missed out on promotion on goal difference during the 2017/18 season. This blow was softened by winning the Welsh League Cup after beating Division 1 Champions Llanelli Town, 2-1 in the final at Garden Village. The Club were runners up during the 2018/19 season and were promoted to the newly formed Welsh League Division 1.
Trefelin Boys and Girls Club currently run teams at all age groups from Under 6 through to 1st Team, with an active and successful Veterans section. The Club remains committed to its community ethos. Indeed, many of the players representing Trefelin Boys and Girls Club at first-team level have progressed via the Club’s youth system.
