Crusaders plan St David's Day extravaganza

Celtic Crusaders are planning an extravaganza for St David's Day when they host London Skolars at the Brewery Field (kick-off 5.30pm).

The first event is a traditional Welsh costume fancy dress competition for all primary school children. This will be judged by members of the Crusaders' side and the winner with the best looking costume will be presented with their prize at half-time by Crusaders season ticket holder, Carwyn Jones AM.

In addition to the individual prize for the winner, which is a Crusaders goodie bag containing a season ticket and other souvenirs, the entire winner's school will be invited to attend the Crusaders v Doncaster match on Saturday 15th March free of charge.

Also at half-time, a world record attempt will be judged.

Bridgend College are attempting to beat the world record for the largest Welsh Cake which currently stands at 4ft 6 in diameter. Their aim is to top five foot to get themselves in the record books.

The cake is being rolled at the college at midday and will be baked by 2pm before being transported to the Brewery Field. After the official measurements have been completed, the cake will be cut and sold to the fans with all money being split between the Samaritans and to the Porthcawl Counselling Service.

Carwyn Jones said: "If we can pull this off, it will be a great Welsh achievement.
