Written by The North East Welsh FA, February 18, 2019
It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of NEWFA President Mr Peris Jones. Mr Jones was a founder member of the North East Wales FA that started in 1968. During his time with NEWFA Peris had represented the association on the Referees Association as well as being the NEWFA representative for the Football Association of Wales. Within the association Peris was Chairman from 1991-1994 and President from 1998 - 2019. He has served the association for over 50 years, I'm sure all will appreciate the effort and magnificent achievement this really is. On behalf of North East Wales FA we would like to publicly thank Mr Jones for all his efforts and extend our gratitude with deepest sympathy for all of his family. Peris Jones will be sadly missed.
