Cambrian and Clydach BGC
Cambrian FC was formed originally in 1965 and amalgamated under as one club in 2001-02. In the 2004-2005 season Cambrian & Clydach Vale BGC secured promotion to The Welsh Football League for the first time in its history. The club progressed further in its first season, winning the 3rd Division title and gaining promotion to the Second Division. In 2006-07, Cambrian achieved a third successive promotion after finishing runner-up in the Division and were promoted to Welsh League Division One. A remarkable achievement in just three years. The club has consolidated its position in the league, and finishing as champions in 2011/12, and consistently finishing in the top 2 since promotion to division 1.
