FAW Suspends all Domestic Football (including all Local and Junior Leagues) until Saturday 4th April 2020

Phil Thomas the Referees’ Manager for the FAW has sent to following message to all referees:

“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Football Association of Wales has taken the decision to suspend all domestic football until Saturday 4th April 2020. Please note this includes all grassroots and junior football. The situation will be continuously monitored, and any updates will be shared on the FAW’s website: www.faw.cymru

Editor’s Comment: This action is unprecedented in my time as a referee and we can only hope that the proposed three weeks’ hiatus to the season is sufficient to curtail the spread of the disease.  From a purely football perspective, this suspension further complicates an extremely difficult position faced by all competitions/leagues that have been disrupted by the dreadful weather during the last few months.  Will any competition be completed in the time allowed after play does re-start?  Only time will tell.
