Four North Wales football clubs’ appeals against the FAW’s decision to refuse them a licence to compete in the top flight will be heard next week.
Airbus UK Broughton, Cefn Druids, Flint Town United and Prestatyn Town will all have a second chance to prove themselves when the FAW Independent Appeals Body meet remotely next Wednesday, April 29.
Following the results of the FAW First Instance Body meeting on 6 April, a total of six clubs have submitted appeals.
The IAB will consider the appeals of the following clubs:
Newtown (UEFA only)
Airbus UK Broughton (UEFA & Tier 1)
Cefn Druids (UEFA & Tier 1)
Flint Town United (Tier 1)
Prestatyn Town (Tier 1)
Swansea University (Tier 1)
Prestatyn’s issue relates to its TV gantry meeting the necessary criteria.
The FAW Tier 1 Licence is required for clubs to participate in the JD Cymru Premier and for those clubs who qualify for European competitions, a UEFA Licence is also a pre-requisite.
The Club Licensing system aims to assist the continual improvement and development of football clubs at the top level within Wales.
Licensing is a transparent process that enables clubs to demonstrate to their stakeholders that they meet quality standards.
