Plexus Fire & Security, a leading provider of comprehensive fire and security solutions, is proud to celebrate its ongoing sponsorship partnership with Ysgol Y Strade’s rugby team. 

This collaboration, now in its second season, underscores Plexus’s commitment to fostering community sport, particularly at the school level, and where Ysgol Y Strade’s rugby team has been extremely successful in recent seasons.

During the 2023/2024 season, the team emerged as the West Wales Schools League A Champions and represented West Wales in the prestigious Champion of Champions final at The Gnoll in December, where they triumphed over Cardiff High School and were crowned Champion of Champions for U18’s Schools in Wales. 

Additionally, the team showcased their talent at the Welsh Cup Final held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, having previously secured the Welsh Cup Championship in the 2022/2023 season.

Over the last four years, Ysgol Y Strade’s rugby program has maintained an impressive record, losing only four games. The school’s ability to nurture talent is evident, with past pupils such as Josh Adams, Steff Evans, and Steff Hughes, and current Wales U18’s international Keanu Evans, exemplifying the high standard of rugby excellence fostered at Ysgol Y Strade.

Paul Jones of Plexus, himself an ex-pupil of Ysgol Y Strade, expressed his pride in sponsoring the school: “As a former student, it’s incredibly rewarding to support the next generation of rugby talent at Ysgol Y Strade. Seeing the team’s achievements over the past two seasons has been inspiring. At Plexus, we believe in the power of community and the positive impact of sport in shaping young lives. We are honoured to play a part in their success.”

Dylan Richards, Teacher and Head of Rugby at Ysgol Y Strade, emphasised the importance of the support from Plexus: “We are immensely grateful to Plexus for their sponsorship. Their support has been vital in providing our team with essential resources such as kit and training equipment. This partnership has not only helped us achieve significant milestones but has also inspired our players to strive for excellence on and off the field.”

Plexus Fire & Security remains dedicated to supporting Ysgol Y Strade and looks forward to witnessing more victories and the continued development of young athletes.

This partnership is a testament to the positive impact that community support and corporate sponsorship can have on school sports programs, inspiring excellence and fostering a spirit of camaraderie and achievement.
