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 must 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.
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 processed and will be returned to the club concerned.
