WILL Lloyd-Williams and Graham Evans will represent Central Wales on the Football Association of Wales (FAW) council for the next four years.

Machynlleth-based Williams won the quadrennial election with 23 votes, just ahead of Graham Evans of Tregynon with 22.

Gareth Griffiths of Carno ended third with nine votes.

Both Williams and Evans were incumbents with Evans winning a bi-election earlier in the year after Rhayader based Phil Woosnam was elevated to life membership of the national association.

Central Wales now has four life members of the FAW in Woosnam. Welshpool based Phil Pritchard, Caersws’ Phil Jones and Dai Alun Jones of Aberystwyth.

Williams and Evans are joined by Central Wales Football Association representative David Hinton-Jones of Aberystwyth on the council.

Meanwhile TNS general manager Ian Williams remains the JD Cymru Premier representative.

Evans said: “I’m honoured to be re-elected. I’ve built good relationships with clubs over the past eight months and pleased they trust in me to represent them for the next for the next four years.

“I’ll continue with my open and inclusive approach and ensure Central Wales has a voice at the top table of Welsh football.”

Evans becomes one of the youngest members of the mammoth 35 man FAW council which is comprised of 13 life councillors and six unelected area association representatives alongside 13 elected councillors.
