JD Welsh Premier League permutations following Licencing Decisions.

Today’s Licencing Appeals decisions made by the FAW Licencing Appeals Body have ramifications on both the make up of the League and the end of season European qualification and playoffs.

Promotion and Relegation

Bangor City will be relegated alongside Prestatyn Town. This means that Carmarthen Town will be reprieved, and will play in the JD Welsh Premier League next Season.

Caernarfon Town and Llanelli Town have both been promoted to the JD Welsh Premier League after their successful licence applications.

European Places and Playoffs

Connah’s Quay Nomads will be awarded an automatic UEFA Europa League place by virtue of their league position.

Bala Town, Cefn Druids, Cardiff Met and Barry Town United have qualified for the European playoffs. The make-up of the playoff games now depends on the result of the JD Welsh Cup Final.

Should Aberystwyth win the Final, then all four teams will play in the semi-finals on the weekend of the 12th May. Bala will host Barry, and whoever finishes fifth out of Druids and Met will host the other.

Should Connah’s Quay win the Final, Bala Town will automatically qualify for the UEFA Europa League. Barry will then travel to the team finishing sixth in the table in the only semi-final, with the winner travelling to the fifth placed team in the Final on 20th May.
