PRESTATYN Town have been crowned JD Cymru North champions after the domestic season was cancelled by the FAW.

The Seasiders’ have been in sensational form throughout the campaign and how now been awarded the crown following the Football Association of Wales’ decision to curtail Tiers 1-4 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This represents a significant achievement for Neil Gibson’s side, who more than lived up to pre-season expectations after a number of high-profile signings including Kai Edwards, Michael Parker and Jordan Davies.

They were 16 points clear of Flint Town United at the summit prior to the initial suspension having played two more games than the Silkmen.

The FAW have yet to make a decision regarding any promotion or relegation from tier two into the JD Cymru Premier, which they are expected to do “in due course”.

Prestatyn were denied a Tier 1 Domestic Licence on appeal, which means they are currently unable to take their place in the top-flight if the FAW decide to allow such an eventuality.

Flint were awarded their licence on appeal. But Seasiders’ officials are now in the process of continuing their legal fight in a bid to get the appeal decision overturned.

The club remains steadfast that the process was delayed through “no fault of their own”.

The Journal understands that the person involved in the FAW’s outsourced work surrounding the licence asked for a delay in proceedings due to other work commitments.
