Llanelli Town AFC handed huge Welsh League boost
THE newly-formed Llanelli Town AFC have been handed a huge boost after they were admitted the to the Welsh League.
The Reds thought they were heading for the Carmarthenshire League after being wound up in the High Court.
But they have now been handed a place in the Welsh League’s bottom tier after an emergency Football Association of Wales meeting yesterday.
Barry Town won a High Court battle last week forcing the FAW to allow them to play in the Welsh League.
“The decision was made to admit Barry Town United AFC into the Third Division of the Welsh League,” an FAW statement said.
“Following that decision, the FAW Council further debated the decision regarding Llanelli Town AFC and agreed to permit the club into the Third Division of the Welsh League.”
The FAW Council also allowed Bettws AFC to remain in the division and, as a result, the Welsh League will have 19 teams at league three level next term.
