Caernarfon win UEFA licence appeal

Caernarfon Town have been granted a UEFA licence at the second time of asking.

The Canaries won an appeal on Thursday against the FAW’s decision not to award the club a licence, necessary for playing in European competition.

It means Caernarfon will be able to take their place in the Welsh Premier’s end of season play-offs with Europa League qualifying at stake.

They’re already guaranteed a home semi-final, regardless of whether they finish in fourth or fifth in the table at the end of the regular campaign.

Caernarfon had already secured a Tier 1 licence from the FAW, which ensured the Cofis will play WPL football again next season.

In a surprising move, the club unveiled former Rhyl and Connah’s Quay boss Allan Bickerstaff as their new manager last weekend.

He replaces fans favourite Sean Eardley, whose 17-month reign saw Caernarfon return to the WPL after nine years and secure a top six finish in their first season back in the top flight.

Infact, the UEFA licence decision came exactly a year to the day since the Cofis clinched the Huws Gray Alliance title with a 5-0 victory at Llandudno Junction.

Eardley stays on as right-hand man to Bickerstaff, who takes charge for the first time on Easter Saturday night, when they face newly crowned champions The New Saints before Sgorio’s cameras at Park Hall.
