Prop Jenkins forced to hang up his boots

By Rhyd Cole | 07/12/2017

Bridgend Ravens prop Keiron Jenkins has confirmed that he is retiring from the game after finally admitting defeat to a long standing neck injury.

Having signed for the club in 2016, 30 year old tighthead prop Jenkins went on to play fourteen times for the club, being on the winning side eight times after joining from Treorchy. Throughout his career he represented Bedwas, Glamorgan Wanderers, Pontypridd and Treorchy. He also represented Blues U20, as well as Newport Gwent Dragons at senior regional level on six occasions during the 2011/12 season.

On calling it a day, Jenkins was keen to extends thanks to everyone at the club.

“I’m gutted to have had to call it a day, but I think it’s for the best as the injury doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I’d like to wish you all the very best for the remainder of the season, and extend a huge thank you to everyone at Bridgend Ravens, be it staff, players and supporters alike. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bridgend.”

Meredith Griffith, Bridgend Ravens Team Manager was quick to praise Jenkins, commenting,

"On behalf of everyone at Bridgend Ravens, we would like to thank Keiron for his time with us and wish him all the very best for the future. Not only a top player, he is also smashing guy to have around the club. A warm welcome will always await 'Ron' at the Morganstone Brewery Field."
