Lyndon Lewis Retires

Aberavon attack coach Lyndon Lewis steps down.

Lyndon Lewis has decided to step down from coaching and retire, and therefore will leave the club.

From 1986 he spent eight seasons and 132 games as a full-back at Aberavon, captaining the club in 1991-92 and later played for Pontypridd and Ebbw Vale. Lewis moved into coaching with Vardre and then spent 11 years with Llandovery.

Lyndon joined Aberavon in the summer of 2015 and has assisted Aberavon in reaching a Premiership Cup Final and a Premiership League Final.

Head Coach Jason Hyatt commented. 

“I’ve worked with Lyndon for several years at Aberavon and he should should be extremely proud of the positive influence he has had within the Aberavon environment.

As well as helping Aberavon to evolve as a team, Lyndon has worked hard with individuals and I’m sure the players are very grateful for his hard work and commitment.

Enjoy retirement Lyndon I sure your golf will flourish, hopefully your drinking will too”.

Chairman Andrew John added.

“On behalf of everyone at Aberavon RFC I would like to add my sincere thanks to Lyndon for his input and hard work over the past seven years with us.

He’s been a pleasure to work with throughout the whole period and we all wish him well in the future.

He’s planning a break from rugby so the golf course awaits him for now but I’m sure once the batteries are re-charged he will be back in the game in some role.

Whatever that may be we wish him and his family the very best, thanks Lyndon”.
