Suburbs return to Burry Port for Centenary match

Garden Suburbs were formed in 1921 and in recent years can be found playing at Seaside in Llanelli. The team used to call Burry Port their home and so they teamed up with the local football team and asked if they could play this special centenary match on their spiritual home turf.

Of course Burry Port accepted and the game went ahead.

Chairman of Suburbs Andrew Hall said: “The club played its first recorded league fixture shortly after forming, playing in the Llanelli and District League on the 10th of September 1921. On the same date in 1932 the club played their first Carmarthenshire League game against Stampers. To mark that anniversary we picked that date to re-enact the game, playing a selected squad of Carmarthenshire League players.”

Andrew concluded by saying: “Whilst we are now based at Seaside as our venue for home games, we decided to return to Burry Port and we thank Burry Port AFC for affording us their hospitality.”

The match was kicked off by the mayor of Pembrey and Burry Port Mike Theodoulou.
