Pen-y-pound Stadium is the home ground of Abergavenny Thursdays AFC (Association Football Club). The first football club in Abergavenny, in the 1890s, was named Abergavenny Rangers. Early in the 20th century, the club was renamed Abergavenny Rangers Thursdays. The current name, Abergavenny Thursdays Football Club, was adopted in 1908.
The "Thursdays" part of their name is said to have been used because Thursday was half-day closing in Abergavenny, allowing the players (mostly apprentices, shopboys and other local workers) to be available for matches in the afternoon. But if the team was named because it was unusual to play football on Thursday (rather than the usual Saturday), against whom did they play?
