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.

Graham Evans, who represents the central Wales sub-area, said it is the intention of the governing body to “if and when possible” with June the earliest start date due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 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 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.”

This is good news for the likes of Holyhead Hotspur and Denbigh Town, who are chasing promotion back to the second tier at the earliest opportunity.

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, which would also bring its own complications for clubs such as Rhuddlan Town, Llysfaen, the North Football Association and Bangor 1876, all of whom are contending for titles.
