Pembrokeshire gets sports magazine

The Western Telegraph, the biggest selling weekly newspaper in Wales, has launched a new paper, Pembrokeshire Sports Monthly.

It is believed to be the first weekly paper in Wales to publish a 24-page colour paper purely dedicated to sport. The first issue has an exclusive double-page interview with Ospreys and Wales rugby international Jonathan Thomas.

The first issue also covers a host of other sports such as football, cricket, golf, triathlon, shooting, fishing, tennis, plus a six-page junior section.

Pembrokeshire Sports Monthly also includes special features such as “your favourite golf course”, disability sports, unsung hero and team of the month.

Sports editor Gordon Thomas and sports writer Bill Carne have been responsible for much of the content. Peter John, publisher at the Newsquest-owned title, says the paper has been a big success: “It beat its ad revenue and profit target and the feedback from readers and advertisers has been fantastic.”
