FOOTBALL: Fifa rules on Welsh clubs
Thursday 01 June 1995
Fifa has ruled that the three Welsh clubs - Newport, Colwyn Bay and Caernarfon - playing in English leagues must return to play in Welsh leagues by June 1997. Fifa has also suspended leading officials of the three clubs for two years, and said that the clubs were being punished because "in defiance of all Football Association rules, these clubs took the case to civil court."
