PRESSURE continues to grow on the Welsh Government to allow supporters back into football league fixtures.

Currently only 16 men’s clubs in Wales are competing with all leagues below the JD Cymru Premier in hiatus since March.

However Liz Saville-Roberts, MP for for Dwyfor, insisted the Welsh Government needed to change its policy.

The Plaid Cymru MP visited Bala Town on the weekend and insisted the protocols in place had exceeded Westminster’s own safety regulations.

She said: “I was asked by Bala Town Football Club to inspect the protocols they have in place.

“Ironically for someone who visits Westminster as often as I do, this weekend was the first time I have had my temperature checked

“It feels safer here and more organised than it does in Westminster.

“At the same time I have seen people watching the game from outside the ground

“We have people watching the game from a pub with some rule of 30 rules but only a few can come here

“The message I hear from doctors is that it is important for people to go outside and take an interest in these sports

“The future of the clubs in the Cymru Premier is at stake.

“These things are important for the future and important for people’s health now

“We’re outside, it would make sense to get people back under Covid guidelines an if it helps these clubs then all the better for it.

“Yes, we need to social distance but if this is the best we can manage at this time I believe it is better to be outside than lying arms length indoors.”
