THIS week From the Archive features the two Bryn Hafren Tennis squads from 1977-78.

Both the under 15 and the senior squads were unbeaten all season and both squads were crowned county champions of their age group.

Carole Evans, Head of PE recorded that the under 15 squads beat Radyr and Howarden and were the winners against West Glamorgan (5-4) to become the under15 champions.

Within the squad were several county players: Melanie Vincent, Kathryn Davies and Susan Coles as well as the County Doubles Champions, Kathryn Davies and Camilla Scandrett.

The Senior Tennis Squad beat Llanderyn and Radyr to become champions that year.

Captained by Sally Moore the squad also included Sharon Taylor, the county singles runner up.

Both teams were coached by Mrs Shirley Morgan.

The school is keen for people to share their memories of Bryn Hafren before the school transformation comes into being in September this year.
