PRESTATYN Town’s supporters will be holding an online meeting later this week to discuss their next step amid an ongoing dispute with new chairman Jamie Welsh.

The club has undergone considerable changes since they were denied promotion to the JD Cymru Premier after failing to obtain their Tier 1 Domestic Licence from the Football Association of Wales.

This has resulted in former manager Neil Gibson and a host of senior squad members also leaving the Seasiders, with Welsh appointing John Lawless as the man to replace the popular figure.

A number of Academy coaches and people behind the scenes have also left the club, leaving large sections of their fanbase in the dark regarding what direction Town will go from here.

They have begun a dialogue with the Football Supporters Association and will be holding a “frank discussion” with anyone that wants to involve themselves on Tuesday, October 20 via Zoom from 7pm.

Ahead of the meeting, the supporters have sent no fewer than 20 questions to Welsh, demanding to know the plans for the current season and beyond, why Gibson and his playing staff left and what he plans to do in order to improve communication with fans.

The questions also feature the ongoing rumours regarding any involvement from former Bangor City owner Stephen Vaughan Jr. despite Welsh and the controversial figure both stating these are false, in addition to clarification on just how much debt the club is in following the previous ownership.

Supporters are also concerned about the Academy system following recent events, which has been a clear player pathway into the first-team in recent years.

Another question posed to Welsh was the potential of him possibly stepping down and allowing the fans to take over, something that appears unrealistic at this juncture.

A supporter statement, read: “We would like to inform our fellow fans that we have now opened dialogue with the Football Supporters Association, formerly-known as Supporters Direct.

“We are exploring a number of avenues and actions with them to help us a fan group become a more integral part of the club going forward, we believe this is the correct and formal way to enhance our support of Prestatyn Town Football Club or any new club going forward.

“We would like to go on record and thank the supporter groups from Wrexham and Bangor 1876, their support and guidance over the last week has been invaluable.

“Our dialogue with the FSA continues and we hope to bring a set of formal proposals to you in the very near future.”
