Following the postponed JD Cymru South match between Carmarthen Town and Risca United on Saturday 31 July 2021, the FAW’s National Leagues Board (NLB) met on Tuesday 10 August 2021 and have deducted the Club 3 points for their failure to fulfil the fixture.
Carmarthen Town’s request for a postponement failed to satisfy the criteria outlined in the ‘Positive COVID-19 Test Policy for National Leagues’ as approved by the National Leagues Board in conjunction with medical advice.
The Policy protects the integrity of the competition, whilst still taking into account reasonable measures to protect Clubs and its players from COVID-19.
In line with the Policy, Carmarthen Town had sufficient players to fulfil the fixture.
As a result of their refusal to participate in the match, Carmarthen Town have been deducted three (3) points in the 2021/22 season and have been fined £1,000 (£500 suspended until the end of the 2022/23 season) in line with League Rule 3.7 and the Cymru South Scale of Fines.
In addition, in accordance with League Rules 20.2, 20.3 and 20.4, Risca United are awarded £300 compensation for their journey made on the date of the match, payable by Carmarthen Town.
