The CEO of Pontypool RFC has called out a man he claims has harassed him from the safety of Twitter for years.


CEO Ben Jeffreys was branded a ‘weed’ yesterday by the man at the centre of complaints, who has apparently been trolling the club executive ‘incessantly’ for years on Twitter.

The pair met in real life this weekend in a match between Pontypool RFC and Crosskeys.

The man in question wrote: “(W)ell you were very underwhelming today just the weed I thought you might be. And I’ve never pm’d [sic] your family as you stated to people. I’m not interested in your family and much less you you scrout. Thank your supporters for chanting my name on the terraces.”

CEO Jeffreys decided to fight back against the abuse, tweeting a response following his side’s crushing 54 – 3 defeat of local rival Crosskeys.

“You had your chance to say your piece earlier after harassing me on Twitter for years and you sh** out.


“It’s no good trying to be a big man now you’re back behind your keyboard.

“Today showed you’re just a gutless troll who doesn’t have a set of bollocks in the real world.”

“(He) shouted at me from the window of the clubhouse on my way to the game. When I asked him to look me in the eye and repeat the vile things he’s tweeted, he couldn’t find the courage to do it.”


“A nasty, gutless little bully.”

“Actually, he approached me at the game and couldn’t bring himself to look me in the eye and repeat the vile things he’s said about me and my mental health. He would only speak to me through a half open window and recoiled like a typical gutless keyboard warrior. I hate bullies.”

“I know I’ve not covered myself in glory here Paul and I ignore 99% of the abuse – but this had gone too far with this guy. He’s incessantly harrassed and abused me for over three years and sometimes you have to call out a bully and look them in the eyes to expose their cowardice.”

The CEO received overwhelming support on Twitter after the calling out.
