Newtown Football Club has secured UEFA and FUW Club Licencing for the 2019/20 season.

The Robins received the confirmation of the club licenses this afternoon allowing them to compete in the Welsh Premier League and in European games next season.

A statement on the club’s website tonight states: “The license agreement wouldn’t have been at all possible without the hard work being done behind the scenes at Latham Park including the big contributions from Club Secretary, Barry Gardener.

Mr Gardener said: “To get the UEFA Licence is a challenge every year because the actual requirements from the FAW keep improving. It is quite a robust procedure to get through. Even as a structured club that has done this for many years it is still a challenge.

“Opening the Latham Centre in terms of the infrastructure is always a challenge because health and safety world improvements brings challenges.

“There is a requirement to have improved coaching qualifications. It’s for us to make sure we are bringing in coaches but actually putting them through a coaching programme so it can improve on their qualifications in line with the licence requirements.

“This is a great achievement. We were the first ever club to achieve our UEFA licence and we have held it ever since it started – 27 years of consecutive top level Welsh football is nice for us.”
