LOCK Stock Welsh Alliance League officials have written to the Football Association of Wales in hope of bringing their cup competitions to a successful conclusion.

The governing body curtailed the domestic season due to the coronavirus pandemic last week, leaving tiers three and four decided by a points-per-game system. It is not yet known if this will come with any promotion or relegation, with the FAW expected to make a decision on this matter “in due course”.

With the FAW implementing their new tier structure in time for the 2020/21 campaign, it officially ends the 85-year involvement of the Welsh Alliance in the domestic pyramid.

In a letter to member clubs, general secretary Ron Bridges outlined a potential proposal that could see remaining cup fixtures played when it is safe to do so.

Mr Bridges, said: “It’s been 85 years since the formation of the Welsh Alliance Football League, it is disappointing to see the league disbanded, the teams are being dispatched into new leagues, some into the new tier three league under the FAW, and others into recreational football under the area associations.

“The league has sent in a request to the FA of Wales for permission to play the three league cup finals prior to the start of the new season, whenever that may be.

“This league has been the strongest league in the area, and it is disappointing that it has to end in this way. “I appreciate that clubs have worked hard over many years to obtain a position in the league, just to be relegated by no fault of their own just because they cannot reach the ground criteria for one of the new tier three divisions.

“It is regrettable that the life members and vice presidents, who have dedicated so much of their time to football are being left off lists now that the league is over, but I thank you for the support you gave to football in North Wales.”

Holyhead Hotspur were crowned champions of Division One and could immediately return to JD Cymru North level should promotion or relegation be granted by the FAW. Denbigh Town’s tremendous season saw them eventually finish in second spot.

Division Two proved to be hugely competitive once again, with Y Felinheli eventually claiming the crown over runners-up Llannefydd.
