Llanelli have secured the signature of Martin Rose in order to replace Rhys Griffiths, who looks set to depart the Stebonheath Park.

Martin Rose has been signed from Port Talbot, and he will be looking to replace Rhys Griffiths, who is the second high-profile player to leave the club this summer. Captain Stuart Jones has already left the club a few weeks ago.

With Euro 2012 fast approaching we take a look at Group C and the quality teams within it who should ensure goals aplenty…

Italy: 4.50 to win the group; 1.62 to reach the last 16; and 16.00 to win the tournament.

Llanelli failed to defend their Premiership crown after falling to a 15-13 defeat at the hands of Pontypridd.

This also meant that Pontypridd have finally got their revenge for the defeat they suffered in the play-off final last season. Craig Price scored the only try of the match and it was left to the five penalties from Lewis Williams to win the match.

Llanelli AFC have been boosted by the news that they have been granted the licence to play on in the Welsh Premier league next season, while there is also the possibility of taking part in the Europa league if they qualify for the competition.

There has been a total of 21 domestic licence applications, among which Llanelli AFC were one of them.

Llanelli's problems against the Town continued in the recent match between the two clubs as well.

Llanelli have never beaten the club since getting promotion to the Welsh Premier league in 2008.

Bangor City manager Nev Powell has come out with the statement saying that he expects his team's good run of form to continue in the match against Llanelli.

This is a top of the table clash that is set to become the talking point this weekend.

Bangor City come into the match on a rich vein of form, which has seen them go on an incredible run, helping them to the top of the table. So far, they have gone undefeated in the domestic campaign, which is a fantastic achievement.

Llanelli have been drawn against Rhyl in the Welsh Cup. The draw for the fourth round of the Welsh Cup was made recently and holders Llanelli will be up against Rhyl.

This by no means is an easy match for Llanelli given that Rhyl come into the match having knocked out Newtown – a Welsh Premier League team.

Hopes were high when Llanelli took to the pitch at The New Saints' home ground, with the reds just three points behind leaders TNS in the league - a win would take them to joint top with just a few games to go.

Sadly it wasn't to be, with TNS proving too much of a handful at home, and causing the Llanelli defenders and goalkeeper too many problems.

Llanelli AFC finally brought the domination of Bangor City FC over the Welsh Cup by winning it. The victory brought to an end their opponents' superb run in the competition, Bangor having lifted the trophy in each of the last three seasons thanks to a run of 23 Welsh Cup ties without defeat. The side coached by Neville Powell were also been crowned Welsh Premier League champions last week, but they were always on the back foot at Parc Y Scarlets, falling behind to well-placed headers from Rhys Griffiths and Craig Moses in the first half.

Three Hakin United footballers have been named in the West Wales Football Association 18-man squad.

Ewan Findlay, Ashley Bevan and James Stanmore, are the first from Hakin United to gain selection at this level.

They took part in a tough trial at Stebonheath, the ground of Llanelli AFC, and the Vikings trio’s quality displays impressed West Wales manager John Cornelius and assistant David Jones.
