Both The New Saints and Carmarthen Town supported the FAW’s Fair Play Day initiative at Park Hall yesterday.
The fair play logo was present on the cover of the match day programme, while players from both sides lined up together behind the scheme’s promotional board ahead of the kick-off.
The aim of the day is the promotion of a message of fair play across the whole of Welsh football, encouraging good behaviours from players, clubs and supporters alike.
The team who finishes top of the disciplinary table in the Welsh Premier League this season, meaning they’ve picked up the fewest yellow and red cards, can get their hands on a £1000 prize.
Speaking of the scheme, Ian Fisher, the FAW’s Discipline Manager, said:
“The FAW Fair Play Day is a great way of promoting the Fair Play message and to remind everyone involved in football, whether that is the players, match officials, coaches or supporters, the importance of being respectful to one another.
“By creating a respectful atmosphere for people to play in, it will produce an environment whereby everybody can feel included and enjoy the beautiful game together.
“Each club that takes a proactive approach and promotes the FAW Fair Play initiative can reduce the number of disciplinary points they have received throughout the season to be in with a chance of winning their League’s FAW Fair Play Table and receive £1000 prize money.”
