LLANRHAEADR manager Marc Griffiths believes the football season being cancelled would be a small price to pay to protect society's most vulnerable.

Wales is in its third national lockdown in 10 months and virtually all sport in hiatus since March last year.

The JD Cymru North was scheduled to begin this month but the latest Welsh Government restrictions have cast doubt on whether the season could be lost in its entirety.

Griffiths said: "The latest lockdown is absolutely necessary for us beat the virus, if it means the season doesn't start at all then we will all be disappointed but protecting the vulnerable and our loved ones is more important than any football match.

"I believe the Football Association of Wales are optimistic tiers one and two will be able to start in mid February but I feel that is wishful thinking..

"At Llanrhaeadr we are doing online zoom fitness sessions with players taking it in turns to choose a theme..

"We have also started a club on the running app, Strava which is becoming very competitive and will be doing a good job in keeping the legs working in the meantime."
