Carmarthenshire schools will be performing on the big stage this week with rugby and football matches at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

This upcoming week will see the schools' teams compete in the Welsh Schools Rugby Cup.

The cup final happens on March 20, where Strade will battle against Maes y Gwendraeth.

The vase and plate finals will also take place, with Bro Myrddin and Bro Dinefwr vying for the vase and Bro Teifi and Bro Pedr for the plate.

Adding to the excitement is the girls' football Welsh Schools Cup finals, with Bro Myrddin already securing a championship match slot.

Gareth Morgans, director of education and children, said: "We are very proud of our schools for their tremendous success in showcasing the rich sporting talent within Carmarthenshire.

"The collective efforts and dedication of these teams exemplify the spirit of sportsmanship and excellence, reflecting positively on the community."

The achievements of teams such as Bro Dinefwr's under-16 girls’ rugby team and Bro Myrddin's year 9 boys highlights the council's need to support and invest in sports development.
