Decision Details

A decision in the matter of FAW v Connah’s Quay Nomads has been issued by an arbitral tribunal.

On 2 March 2022, Mr William Norris QC, sitting as independent sole arbitrator heard the two disciplinary charges brought by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) against Connah’s Quay Nomads (the Club) alleging breaches of FAW Rules 38.1.1 and/or FAW Rule 38.1.2.c.

It was found that contrary to Cymru Premier Rule 12.6(b), two players were registered to List A after the closure of the first Professional Registration period but before the opening of the second in the 2021/2022 season.

As a result, the sole arbitrator decided that 18 points are to be deducted from the points earned in the current season 2021-22.
