Haverfordwest County’s fixture away to The New Saints will go ahead this Saturday – and will be televised live on S4C.

It will be the only JD Cymru Premier game to be played this weekend.

The Welsh Government announcement yesterday that Wales would be going into a 17 day lockdown period from 6pm this Friday, October 23rd, prompted fears that the JD Cymru Premier League would be halted.

But Telegraph Sport understands that last night, the FAW contacted all Tier 1 sides to enquire if they wished to fulfil fixtures, and if they have enough contracted players to do so. Anyone under contract is technically classed as a professional sports person and therefore, able to compete during lockdown.

In a FAW statement released this afternoon, the authority clarified: "Clubs with a sufficient amount of professional players, coaches and operational staff in the JD Cymru Premier - as defined by the Welsh Government guidelines - will have their fixtures re-arranged to allow them to continue playing against each other. 

"Due to the suspension of the ‘elite programme’, the JD Cymru Premier will postpone all matches involving non-professional clubs during this period. 

"All Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League matches during this period will be postponed. Training during this time is also not permitted."

It will mean some sides having to offer short term contracts to some players to remove their individual amateur status – although a number of clubs have said they don’t have enough off-field professional staff to fully meet the stated requirements between this Friday and Monday, November 9th.

“I’ve been speaking to the FAW all morning and have said we are happy to carry on, and fortunately we’re able to,” said Haverfordwest Chairman Rob Edwards.

“It will mean us contracting some players, but we would rather get in what games we can and avoid any kind of backlog.”

The Bluebirds, currently eighth with nine points from their eight league games so far, were due to kick off at 2.30pm against the leaders.

However, Caernarfon Town have confirmed that they will not be playing games during the lockdown period, and therefore their scheduled match with Aberystwyth, which was due to be shown live by Sgorio, will be postponed.

As a result, Wayne Jones’ side will enjoy television coverage for the second time this season, with kick off now switched to 5.15pm.
