RHAYADER Town Football Club has thrown its support behind a new community support group.

The town council has set-up a COVID-19 support network as townspeople continue to struggle in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

The outbreak has forced many businesses to shut up shop with the Government urging citizens to self isolate.

Last week the Football Association of Wales (FAW) became Wales’ first sporting governing body to suspend fixtures due to public health concerns.

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and Hockey Wales have both since followed suit to enforce a sporting hiatus unheard of since the Second World War.

Rhayader Town Football Club players, coaches and officials have now offered their services in a time of crisis.

The club has backed the town council COVID-19 support network which set to work in Rhayader this week to help those in greatest need in the town and surrounding area.

Manager Dai Davies said: “Rhayader Town Football Club will be providing the volunteers to deliver leaflets for those that are not on social media and will then be on call to do shopping drops, prescription pick ups and generally anything that is needed on the ground.

“We have a new Facebook group page set up called Rhayader Covid-19 Support Network and urge anyone who needs help to get in contact through the group.”
