Cricket is helping to strengthen bonds between communities in the Cynon Valley in the second match this season, bringing divisional police officers together with teams from local mosques.
In a close match on a very hot day this week cricketers from Aberdare Mosque prevailed and took the trophy home.
Constable Lewis McPherson, part of the Community Safety Team, said:
“We congratulate our friends at Aberdare Mosque who retained the InterFaith Trophy by beating the Mid Glamorgan BCU of South Wales Police.”
In a match held in Tondu earlier this summer the BCU’s team held out against an eleven from Aberkenfig Mosque.
A third match is now planned against a combined eleven drawn from both mosques which is scheduled for early in September in Tondu.
Mid Glamorgan Chief Superintendent, Stephen Jones, said:
“I am delighted that we have been able to take up the challenge of pitting cricketing skills with members of local mosques.
“The aim is to break down barriers and strengthen relationships through the global medium of sport to improve engagement and increase confidence in South Wales Police.”
