THE region's leading football clubs will be back in action from February 4.

The Football Association of Wales National League Board today confirmed that all matches in the JD Cymru Premier will resume from February 8th/9th, but where both clubs agree to play before this date, the league will agree to schedule the fixture.

Meanwhile, the JD Cymru South and JD Cymru North will resume from the weekend of February 4th/5th.

The National League Board also agreed that all three Leagues will now be able to use five substitutes in all League matches with immediate effect.

The Welsh Government Coronavirus Regulations do not permit any spectators at professional or elite sporting events and the FAW National League Board acknowledges the significant loss of income that clubs in the JD Cymru Leagues will face with matches taking place behind closed doors.

Matches in all leagues are subject to the FAW’s Return to Play protocols being adhered to and any changes in Welsh Government Coronavirus Regulations.
