The 2020/21 season has been given the green light to commence for the JD Cymru South. This will allow Taffs Well FC to play our first competitive match since March. As a Club we are delighted with the news and hope the rest of the football pyramid in Wales will be afforded the same opportunity soon.
The Statement from the FAW said:
The Football Association of Wales has today (26 November) received confirmation that the JD Cymru North and JD Cymru South has been granted ‘elite status’ by Sport Wales, meaning that the 2020/21 season is permitted to start for these leagues.
The FAW has been working alongside Welsh Government and Sport Wales to produce a return to play plan for the leagues.
The National Sports Group has also requested that the FAW conducts a review of the Men’s Tier 2 implementation for discussion and assessment, before any formal decision is taken on the return of Men’s Tier 3 football in January.
Following confirmation of the news, the FAW National Leagues Board will convene next week to determine an approved format and start date for the 2020/21 season in the JD Cymru North and JD Cymru South.
The leagues will follow the approved FAW Tier 2 Return to Play Regulations in order to safely manage the return of football.
Sadly it looks unlikely that supporters will be allowed to attend. However, we will do all we can to keep you up to date with the squad, results and media from the matches. Stick with us and we'll be back cheering on the Wellmen together soon.
