FAW CORONAVIRUS UPDATE.

 

The Football Association of Wales has taken the decision to extend the current suspension of all domestic football in Wales until at least Thursday, 30 April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FAW is committed to exploring every possible option for all National Leagues to conclude the 2019/20 season by ensuring that matches are played as soon as it is safe to do so.

As a result, the FAW’s Board of Directors agreed today (20 March) to exercise their powers and indefinitely extend the 2019/20 season for all National Leagues, National Cup Competitions and the FAW Futsal League.

Above all, the most important priority for the FAW is the health and wellbeing of everyone. The FAW encourages everyone to follow the advice of the UK & Welsh Governments and Public Health Wales. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the pandemic.

FAW INSTRUCTION.

Bluefin, the FAW's insurance providers, have issued an update: 

"In light of the recent government announcements and upon confirmation all grassroots football in Wales is to cease it is important to note that neither the Countycover Liability insurance package or Personal Accident insurance arranged through the Football Association of Wales will respond to claims if clubs continue to provide sessions which is against the advice of the Government and Governing Body".

"This includes clubs arranging matches, training sessions, friendlies, competitions and tournaments". 

"Furthermore, as Personal Accident insurance does not provide cover in respect of Sickness, Disease or Illness, there is no cover for a person contracting COVID-19 whilst playing or training". 

"There is an obligation for all officials to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the wellbeing of members and we thank you for your co-operation at this unprecedented time."

 

13th March 2020

 

FAW INSTRUCTION.

 

All fixtures including friendly fixtures are cancelled until the 4th April 2020. Training is not affected as long as the provider of the facilities clubs use for training, permit their use.

I anticipate this changing daily so I will keep you informed as best I can.

24th February 2020

 

The Gwent Central League are looking to appoint a Secretary to commence in the 2020/2021 season.

 

The post will be ideal for anybody with an interest in promoting & improving grass roots adult football in a well-established Torfaen & Abergavenny district adult league serving a number of clubs based in & around Pontypool, Blaenavon, Usk & Abergavenny areas.

 

The duties would include organising & notifying regular fixtures for all member clubs,  allocating & contacting match referees, beings responsible for registering players on an annual basis for our league on the new FAW Comet system (for which training will be given), liaising with Gwent County FA & FAW on any league disciplinary matters + minute taking at monthly league meetings etc.

 

Although it is not an employed earner position it does attract generous expenses & an annual allowance as a reward for services rendered. Ideally, it would suit somebody with a basic knowledge of football admin but this is not absolutely essential as help & guidance can be given by the outgoing Secretary in the run up to the 2020/21 season. Good communication skills are essential for this post - as are good computer skills. If this sounds like it's right up your street don't be shy & give Huw (Chair) a ring or drop me an email & I can get back to you for a chat.

 

Chairman: Huw Burkitt

Providence Villa, Tillery Road, Abertillery Gwent NP13 1HZ
