A READING OF RAYMOND WILLIAMS SHORT STORY - "PARRY R " by Russell Todd

This reading has been added to our Library Section 2 https://www.raymondwilliamsfoundation.org.uk/library-section-2 ‘Parry, R.’ is a short story written by Raymond Williams when he was still in his teens, circa 1939. It remained unpublished until 2007 when Parthian Books in Aberteifi published it as part of the Library Of Wales series in an anthology of writing about Sport entitled simply Sport (ed. Gareth Williams; no. 11 in the series). It combines two of Russell’s passions: Raymond Williams and grassroots Welsh football, albeit a fictional team Brynarw FC who play in the North Monmouthshire League and get changed for their matches in a back room of The Half Moon pub.
