It is with very great sadness our Association have to report the passing of former Football & Competitions Secretary Dick Downes. Dick sadly passed away on 29th October 2019 after a brave fight against his illness. Dick was a very hard working and popular member of the MBS Newport & District League and our Association. I am sure you will all share with us our sincere thoughts for Claire and all the family.

 We would ask Clubs to hold a moments silence before games on Saturday.  

RIP Dick.

 Our Association is devastated to hear of the passing of Richard "Dickie" McCarthy at the very young age of 38. Richard represented several clubs in the Abergavenny area, but is perhaps best remembered for his time at Govilon Football Club where he formed a prolific goal-scoring partnership with Dean Morgan, which culminated in them being in the Gwent County FA team which represented Wales in the Uefa Regions Cup. We send our sincere condolences to Richards' family and friends. RIP Richard.

Funeral details to follow.


25th July 2019


There are major changes to the structure of the Pyramid System in Wales. The structure will be: JD Cymru Premier League, JD Cymru League North, JD Cymru League South. We will then have, in the South, Welsh League Division One & Two.


It is a fitting time to change the structure in Gwent. The Gwent County County League will become autominous from the Gwent County Football Association. The League will now be known as as The Gwent Premier League. It will consist of a Premier League, Division One & Two. The Management Committee of the Association has decided we will change our logo to reflect the changes. 


The Four District Leagues in Gwent will stay unchanged.
