Ormond Youth Plate
This competition is played under the same rules as the Ormond Youth Cup
In 2003 the Executive Committee decided that clubs who were knocked out of
the Ormond Youth Cup in the first round should have the chance to play at least
one more competitive cup match and introduced the Ormond Youth Plate. Whilst
this competition was slow to take off, today, all teams who enter the Ormond
Youth Cup also enter the Plate competition. Initially we played the final at
a number of various grounds, but in 2007 we accepted an offer from Lawrenny
C.C. to play the final at their ground.
At the same time we received an offer of sponsorship with the offer of a trophy
to award to the winners. Our treasurer, Mr. Roly Edwards, spoke with Philip
Lloyd, who, together with members of his family agreed to donate a trophy
in memory of his father, Mr David Lloyd, who was County Secretary from 1959
to 1974 - David also played wicketkeeper for Steynton C.C.
We offer our thanks and appreciation to both the family of the late David
Lloyd and to Lawrenny C.C. for their support and co-operation in developing
