Post Match Hospitality

Once again the league are receiving complaints that some clubs are not going back for the Post Match Hospitality provided by the home clubs. This results in a lot of food being wasted and is not acceptable in the sprit of local football.

When receiving confirmation from the home side during the week, can all visiting opponents indicate clearly if they do not intend going back for hospitality following the end of the match.

We all need to make more of an effort to support each other as clubs.

Mark Goldsmith - Chairman

John (Rock) Roberts Inter League Cup match.

The League Champions from both the Gwynedd and Vale of Clwyd & Conwy League's will contest a cup final at Caernarfon Town F.C. In memory of John Roberts the former Gwynedd League secretary.

 

Rhyl Rovers NWCFA suspension lifted.
Rhyl Rovers have paid their fines and have had their suspension lifted.

Conwy Legion United and Prestatyn Sports have both applied to join the Welsh Alliance Division Two. At a meeting of the Joint Liaison Committee, which comprises of the Vale of Clwyd/Conwy, Gwynedd and Welsh Alliance League's, the meeting was informed by the Welsh Alliance secretary Ron Bridges, that only one of the above two teams will be accepted and this on the provision that the successful club finish either as champions or runners up of their league and their ground complies with the Welsh Alliance League ground criteria for Division Two.

Prestatyn Sports had nominated Prestatyn Town's Bastion Gardens as their home ground, as their current Meadows Ground does not meet the requirement. A written ground sharing agreement would have to be provided by Prestatyn Town and approval given by the Welsh Premier or Cymru Alliance League, depending on the league status of Prestatyn Town next season.

Conwy Legion United face a similar dilemma as they currently use the Oval Llandudno, which is ground shared with Llandudno United (who have first choice on the ground). The meeting was informed that Conwy Legion United are intending to ground share with Penmaenmawr Phoenix.

Both applications were submitted correctly before 31st December 2014, along with the applications from Gwynedd League clubs, CPD Bontnewydd, CPD Llanllyfni, Llanystumdwy and Nefyn United. A late application from Y Felinheli was rejected. It was reiterated that only one club from each league will be accepted. The meeting was also attended by Trefor Lloyd-Hughes and Alun Foulkes as observers on behalf of the FAW and NWCFA.

Clwyd Cup and Auxiliary Cup Competitions

The league have confirmed that there will be two extra cup competitions starting in February 2015.

Teams finishing in the top four places in the Vale of Clwyd/Conwy and the North East Wales Football League will play in the Clwyd Cup, which will be a two legged knockout competition. The Champions of each league will play the fourth placed teams, the runners up will play the third placed teams in their opposing leagues. This will be followed by a two legged semi-final, then a one off final at a suitable neutral venue.

All clubs are also invited to enter the Auxiliary Cup, which will be on a minimum four team mini league group basis, with a later knockout stage. (This may include teams from the North East Wales Football League)

Entry to the Auxiliary cup is optional for clubs requiring extra fixtures. It is expected that we may have four groups with the champions of each group and the runners up entering into a straight knockout competition.

There will be no free dates and the group stage of the competition will be played between Saturday February 14th 2015 to Saturday 25th April, for successful teams this may include some mid-week matches. Clubs failing to fulfil any fixtures, will be dealt will under Rule 16 of our cup rules.

Further information will also be posted periodically on our website, including updates on the Clwyd cup positions.

The league reserves the right to exclude clubs on the basis they have a number of outstanding fixtures left and a poor disciplinary record or owe outstanding fines to the league or their area association.

Please note entry is free to this competitions, if your club wishes to be included in the Auxiliary cup, the you must confirm this to Mark Goldsmith in writing or by email markgoldsmith@clwydfootballleague.co.uk before Monday 26th January 2015.

All clubs will then be notified and further information will be sent out.
