The Football Association of Wales has issued new guidelines over the use of goalposts, after the death of a 12-year-old boy in Powys. Casey Breese, from Caersws, was killed when posts fell on him last July.

The guidelines include instructions to dismantle and properly store portable goals that are not in use. Clubs are also prevented from using homemade posts, altered from their original size.
