Ridsdale denied FAW council seat
Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale
Ridsdale wanted to have a say in the running of Welsh football
Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale has failed in his bid to gain a seat on the Football Association of Wales.

Ridsdale stood in the south Wales area elections and polled 14 votes, but the sitting members were all returned by the clubs.

"I don't think anyone will be surprised but I thought it was right to show Cardiff were still playing football in Wales," Ridsdale told BBC Sport Wales.

"The rejection will give me more time to concentrate on my work at Cardiff."

The New Saints' managing director Mike Harris has won the one Welsh Premier seat available on the FAW.

He polled 10 votes against sitting-member Alun Evans' five.
