Head of JD Cymru Premier set to leave role later this month
The JD Cymru Premier is set to lose one of its most influential figures, General Manager Gwyn Derfel has announced he is set to stand down from the league later this month.
Gwyn has overseen the JD Cymru Premier for the past 11 years, in what has been an exciting chapter for the domestic game in Wales.
Before joining the Football Association of Wales in 2012, Gwyn worked as a broadcaster for the league, giving him a unique perspective on the league’s workings.
During his tenure as General Manager, Gwyn has travelled the length and breadth of Wales working with clubs across the league, and has been responsible for the introduction of the Cymru C team, which began in 2018 with the aim of showcasing the best talent on offer in the JD Cymru Premier each season.
Gwyn’s contributions to the league have been many and varied.
He has secured £5 million for the 3G project which has had a hugely positive impact and helped clubs to improve preparation and analysis for domestic and European matches.
He has also worked to enhance the league’s relationship with broadcast partners, S4C and the Sgorio team, treating the JD Cymru Premier with the respect it deserves.
In a statement, Gwyn said, “I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity of leading our national league over the past 11 years. During that period, we’ve secured £5m for the 3G project which has had a hugely positive impact and I’m also very proud of the fact that we’ve helped clubs to improve preparation and analysis for domestic and European matches.”
Gwyn will step down from his position at the end of January 2023.
