These rules have been enforced by the FAW, Aberystwyth Town and the Police so we want to urge everyone connected to the football club to please respect and obey the decisions that have been made.
We want to urge the fantastic people of Cefn Mawr and beyond to please still travel and support the team in numbers, they need their 12th person. The successes that this football club has achieved so far in this competition has not only been down to the hard work of the players, management and committee members but it’s also been down to all the passionate supporters who have given up their Saturday afternoons to support CAFC and Welsh grass roots football in general. Along the way we have witnessed supporters purchasing things such as drums and flags from their own pockets which has helped create a great advert for tier three football by creating some excellent atmospheres at venues such as Corwen and Newton. Please ensure that continues at Park Avenue on Saturday 13th April 2019, It’s your day to!
Following various communications, CAFC have made the decision to leave Park Avenue immediately after final whistle. We will head back to our HQ, the Cefn Mawr Community social club in Cefn Mawr and regardless of the outcome on Saturday everyone involved will be rewarded to say thank you for reaching a cup final of national competition, a remarkable achievement given the circumstances.
If anyone has any questions or any information that they believe should be brought to the attention of the football club then please get in touch and we will happily help you out. The main aim is to ensure that everyone enjoys the day in their own way.
Please stay tuned for further updates throughout this week.
