Message to Coaches and Parents Regarding Newport County Academy
Newport County Academy are playing games in Newtown on Sunday 15th October 2017. These games have NOT been sanctioned by the Gwent County Football Association or the FAW.
There are concerns about insurance for these children playing in unsanctioned games.
Newport County Academy is for players under 12’s to under 16’s and they play in the Academy structure.
Newport County also run an Academy Development Centre for players under 7’s to under 16’s. Players who are selected for the ADC are also allowed to play for their local clubs.
We are aware that all players were given a J1A form to sign. This form is for Academy players only not ADC players.
We know that children and parents were told it was a transfer form but it is not and your child has not been transferred from the club they signed for to Newport County.
At present we do not know what sanctions will put on these players that travel to Newtown.

Please Note: with immediate effect, for all mini age groups playing on all weather surfaces, the following playing rule must be adopted:
"When a goal kick is to be taken the opposing team's players must retire to the half way line. The moment the ball is released by the goalkeeper the opposition players cab advance into the other half."
This will encourage goalkeepers to roll the ball out underarm instead of trying to throw the ball over the advancing opposition players.
