A Neath-based sports team have benefited from a new projector which was purchased for them by a supporters club.

Neath Rugby Supporters Club snapped up the device for their team at the end of last month in order to aid the players in their pre-match analysis as well as enabling video footage of games to be projected from a laptop onto the wall in the players' dressing room

The projector was bought using funds raised at the recent Neath v New Zealand 25th Anniversary event, which was held at the clubhouse.

"The main reason for our existence is to raise funds that can help the Neath rugby team in any practical way," the supporters club states. In this case that was by buying a projector.

A Neath Rugby Supporters Club spokesman explained to the South Wales Evening Post: "We discussed with the team management what we could do to help, and they asked if we could purchase them a projector. They said it will greatly assist them in reviewing previous games and analysing future opponents. We were only too happy to help.”

The new projector was formally presented to the players on the team at their recent game against Bridgend.
