Football: North Wales Coast FA averts crisis by filling vacant committee roles

THE North Wales Coast FA has elected a new committee to fill the raft of vacancies left by a mystery mass exodus of league officials.

The FA never offered an explanation of why most of the committee walked out mid-season, although they intimated some form of malicious rumour had sparked the exodus.

In a statement former general secretary and current vice-president of the FAW Trefor Lloyd Hughes said: “Malicious rumours have been circulating with regard to the finances of the North Wales Coast Football Association (NWCFA) and the inference of these allegations is that the NWCFA is in a difficult financial state.

“I hope the public will understand that these malicious falsehoods are unnecessary and must stop immediately.

“Not only are they defamatory, but also they are deeply hurtful to the people and their families that are involved with the running of the NWCFA.”

The Association is now hoping to return to business as usual having filled a number of vacant posts.

Most are from Anglesey but one crucial post – that of registrations secretary – will be filled by Penyffordd’s Julia Jones.

The entire Welsh Alliance and Welsh National League fixture cards were wiped out by the freezing weather at the weekend.
