North Wales MS Sam Rowlands has welcomed news that Conwy County Council plan to launch a new Conwy Schools Football Programme.

The news follows a local campaign led by football coaches.

The Programme will see players drawn from schools all over the county.

Mr Rowlands said: “I am absolutely delighted by this news as up until now Conwy was the only local authority in North Wales not to have a county wide school football team.

“It is something I have wanted to see in the county for a good while, and it’s been great to see the initiative being supported by a group of local football coaches who have been campaigning for a team for some time.

“This news shows what can be achieved when councils work with local residents and those in the community. A big thank you is due to everyone involved.”

Cllr. Louise Emery, deputy leader of Conwy County Council and cabinet member for leisure, said she was also delighted with the decision.

“I think it is a great move, and I am looking forward to the programme starting and seeing our team playing against other counties,” she said.

“As councillors we are elected by our residents, and it is only right that we listen to what they have to say. I would also like to thank the local group of football coaches for supporting and pursuing this initiative.”
