Len Blakemore - Caerleon FC


 

Caerleon Football Club are sad to report the recent passing of Len Blakemore, who was a stalwart of the Club over an extended period.

 

He played as a goalkeeper for Caerleon and subsequently became a very active member behind the scenes.

 

He will best be remembered by the more senior members of the Welsh League fraternity as a dedicated and genial Club Secretary during the 1980s and 90s (to my memory).

 

 

 

Len's funeral is to be held at St Cadocs Church, Caerleon on Tuesday 20 August at 2pm.

Roy Edwards - Aberbargoed Buds


 

Its with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Roy Edwards. He was a gentleman and a distinguished figure who was well loved within the community.

New Assistant Secretary


As you will be aware Kieran O'Connor was elected President of the FAW recently, a position that requires significant time input.

 Kieran suggested to the Management Committee that they consider the appointment of his daughter, Sarah O’Connor,

 for the remainder of the season. Sarah, as many of you will know, has been registering players in Kieran's absence for over 20 years and

 is the obvious person to take over this position.

 

The Management Committee has this week confirmed her appointment and she will process all registrations, transfers etc

 from today.  Her contact details have been communicated to all Club Secretaries.

 

Kieran O'Connor will remain as Treasurer of the League for this season and will naturally keep a watching brief.
