CAERNARFON Town FC’s home games next season will be free for those aged 16 and younger.

The club said games at The Oval would be free of charge for those in this age bracket, and that the move was due to the ongoing cost of living crisis.

In a statement, the club said it wouldn’t be “fair” on its young supporters to have to miss out because of financial difficulties.

A Caernarfon Town FC spokesperson said: “We wish to announce that, as a result of the ongoing cost of living crisis, we have decided that all young people who are aged sixteen and under will be allowed into the Oval for free for every first team match next season.

“The club appreciates that the whole country is finding things difficult financially and we don’t think it would be fair on our young supporters that they may be unable to see their favourite team because of this.

“We look forward to welcoming them to the Oval next season.”

The Canaries finished ninth in the Cymru Premier this season, four points clear of the relegation zone.
