A FOOTBALL Association of Wales councillor has given renewed hope that the domestic season can come to a successful conclusion following the coronavirus fixture suspension.

Former Caersws goalscoring legend Graham Evans, who represents the central Wales sub-area, said it is the intention of the governing body to finish the season “if and when possible” with June the earliest start date due to the pandemic.

The County Times’ coastal sister paper the Rhyl Journal revealed last week that clubs involved with the JD Cymru Premier, North and South Leagues were informed that they plan to resume on Tuesday, June 2 providing social distancing measures were relaxed by the government.

Fixture plans were laid out for each club throughout June, but the FAW stated it would only be resolved if it was safe to do so in what is an ever-changing situation.

Mr Evans tweeted: “Tiers 1-4 update: it is the intention of the FAW to complete the 2019/20 season as and when/if possible.

“June pencilled in as earliest start – but will obviously be reviewed as per current crisis. For now, please respect others and follow government advice.”

It means the season is not over yet for Mid Wales League clubs such as Welshpool Town and Llanidloes Town.

There was cause for concern after the English FA and National League system expunged all results at grassroots level for the current campaign, a decision they ratified despite hundreds of clubs within their system protesting their displeasure.

No formal decision has yet been made for any teams operating below tier four.
