Players MUST be registered EACH SEASON with the league and hold a player licence to play organised football.
There are six Area Associations in Wales and their borders are defined by the FAW. All Junior players must reside within the boundary of the Area Association. If a player wishes to play outside the area he mmust get sanction from the Area Association he resides in every season, to play outside the area. It does not matter whether the player had played for a club or not.
Please be advised of the following regulations that can impact clubs in our league as we border counties in England and there are clubs within 50 km who play in the English Pyramid System.
Under FIFA Regulations a player 10 years of age or older cannot play for two different clubs in two different countries (e.g. England and Wales) at the same time.
What this means is "No competitive player in age group U12s - U16s players and no mini-football player aged 10 or older in the U10 or U11 age group can register with a club academy in England and register/play for a club in Wales.
Playing for Club Academies/Development Centres who are part of the English Pyramid System (e.g, clubs such as Swansea City, Cardiff City, Newport County, Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, Hereford United, Cheltenham Town, to name a few):

June 6, 2014. Please note that all girls up to the age of 16 can play in mixed football within Gwent. Girls up to the age of 16 are allowed to register with East Gwent Junior clubs and have been doing so for many years. .
The FAW rule is that if there is no Girls League in the geographical area of the Area Association then girls, up to the age of 16, can play in mixed football. The Gwent County FA and the East Gwent Junior Youth League have abided by this rule.
Any advise that you may have been given that stated 'girls must stop playing for a mixed team when they reach the age of 12', is misleading information.
The South Wales Girls League, affiliated to the South Wales FA, allows the few girls teams in Gwent to play in their league because there is no Girls football league provision in our area.
5 January 2015: Please note that the Full name (First & Last Name) MUST be printed on Match Report Sheets together with the 6 digit FAW number. No initials, nicknames or old Gwent County Licence Numbers should be used on the form. The FAW number has to be listed for each player that played or was named on the sheet.
Players licence applications must have the photo affixed to the card and the details completed, otherwise they cannot be processd and will be returned to the club concerned.
