Pooler supporter takes on new club role as Writer in Residence

Tuesday 19th December 2017
 

Pontypool RFC supporter Kathryn Eastman is taking on a new role as Writer in Residence from January 2018 to tie in with the club’s 150th anniversary.

Kath will be blogging about what Pooler means to her alongside writing posts on the club’s history, ground, crest, kit and memorabilia, together with player, volunteer, staff and supporter profiles.

Kath was born in Germany to a Dad from Pontnewynydd and spent holidays visiting relatives in Pontypool. She’s been a Pooler supporter since the age of eight when she watched her first game at the Park. Ten years later, she may have (partly) decided to go to Cardiff University so that she could watch Pontypool play every weekend… After working abroad and across the border, Kath moved back to South Wales and now makes good use of her Pontypool RFC season ticket.

“I’d like to thank Ben Jeffreys for being so enthusiastic about this project when approached. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to get more involved with the club and to give something back," said Eastman.

“Going to matches always feels like coming home in a way because there’s such a great sense of community at Pontypool Park. To reflect that and for this project to succeed, I want to hear from you with your Pontypool stories.

"I know you have some wonderful tales from the snatches of anecdote, banter, memories and stats I catch each week, and it’d be brilliant if you’d share those with me over the next eighteen months.

“If you’re a supporter, stand or bank, armchair or all-weather, local or long distance, I’d love to hear from you. I’m excited about building up a collection of stories to help celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary and can’t wait to get started in the New Year. I hope you’ll share your Pooler with me.”

You can contact Kath by emailing kathrynmeastman@gmail.com or on Twitter @katheastman.

The residency runs for eighteen months to cover the club’s 150th anniversary and 2018-2019 season.
