CAERNARFON Town have successfully obtained their UEFA Licence following a successful appeal.

The JD Welsh Premier League high-flyers will now be able to compete in European competition should they achieve qualification to the Europa League after their initial application was turned down.

This achievement comes as a result of exceptional work behind the scenes by board members and volunteers at the Canaries, with the appointment of the hugely experienced Allan Bickerstaff as manager another significant factor in their appeal being granted.

An FAW spokesman, said: “The FAW Club Licensing Appeals Body met in Cardiff today (April 18) to consider the appeal of Caernarfon Town Football Club, against the decision of the First Instance Body not to award the club a UEFA Licence.

“Following the conclusion of the Appeals Body meeting, Caernarfon town FC were awarded the UEFA Licence for the 2019/20 season.”

The Cofis secured home field advantage in the Europa League playoffs at the end of the season with a convincing victory over Newtown, which was another superb milestone in what has been a memorable first year for the club at the top of the Welsh football pyramid.

They also have the biggest average home attendance in the league by a comfortable margin, with regular crowds of 1,000 packing The Oval during the campaign.
