Club Statement

In light of the recent ITV Wales television broadcast (9/4/19) and recent articles and posts that are being shared across social media, Cefn Albion are aware of the allegations of racist behaviour that have been made about some followers of the Football Club at the FAW Trophy semi-final fixture against STM Sports, which was played at Latham Park, Newtown, on March 16th.

These allegations have only come to light in the last few days and, prior to their broadcast this week, the club had not been made aware of any issues of this nature surrounding the game.

Officers from Dyfed-Powys police were on duty at the match and, at this stage Cefn Albion Football club can confirm that we have not received any direct contact from them, STM Sports, or the FAW regarding the matter.

We at Cefn Albion Football Club pride ourselves on being ambassadors for our community and on providing a welcoming and friendly environment for players and supporters from all backgrounds.

As a football club we will not tolerate any behaviour which brings our good name into disrepute and should we receive any evidence that verifies racial abuse took place then we will work with the FAW and the police to act accordingly.

Until then, the club will be making no further comment on this matter and we look forward to our Cup final occasion this weekend which we are sure will be played and watched in a true sporting spirit.

Haydn Evans - Chairman of CAFC
