Llanelli's players ready to hold talks on crisis
LLANELLI'S players are set to hold emergency talks as they decide whether to leave the club.
Players claim they have not been paid in almost two months and they are poised to discuss their concerns in a meeting after the weekend's game against Bala.
If the club's ongoing financial problems have not been resolved by Sunday, Llanelli will fail Uefa's financial fair play test for the second quarter.
Having failed for the first quarter, the Reds would then not be granted a licence to play in Europe next season. That is also likely to affect their application for a domestic licence to operate in the Welsh Premier League beyond this current campaign.

Players and other club employees are due to be paid on Friday.
Manager Andy Legg has revealed that many of his squad are in severe financial difficulties and admitted he is seriously considering leaving the club.
His assistant Steve Jenkins is also understood to be considering his position.
If players go three months without pay their contracts become null and void and they can sign for other clubs.
Should that happen at Llanelli and the current squad exit en masse, it would leave them in a position where they are in danger of being unable to fulfil their remaining fixtures.
They have already been hit with a transfer embargo by the FAW and only a few of the youth team players are registered to play in the Welsh Premier League.
The rest are attached to clubs who play in the Carmarthenshire League and would not be able to move to the Reds until the transfer window opens in January, even if the embargo was lifted.
