Barry Town United and Llanelli Can't Post or Reply Privately

The FAW have turned down applications from both of these clubs for membership of the FAW and Welsh Leagues (1, 2 and 3!!).
They have been told to apply to their local leagues at recreational level Crazy

I think this is the only move the FAW could have done, after all there are clubs wanting to move up to Welsh League Division 3 and it would have caused a huge stink to parachute two brand new teams in there.

I just with the FA had the guts to do the same in England.

I can't agree. Llanelli and Barry could and should have been accomodated in Welsh League three, even if that had meant the division running with seventeen or eighteen clubs for a season. The reaction of the footballing community across Wales is that this is a wrong decision. The FAW's main responsibility is to look after the interests of football in Wales. Having towns like Barry and Llanelli, both with long and famous footballing traditions, without representation in senior football cannot be said to be doing this.

Both clubs are new clubs, so there is a case for forcing them lower in the pyramid. If nothing else it gives clubs at the next level down that charge for admission a windfall.

But, they clearly could have been elected to the Welsh League without causing problems. They would not have denied clubs promotion, as there must be a knock down effect from the original clubs being removed higher up the pyramid. I suppose as Llanelli were replaced by a club in North Wales, it means their "vacancy" is in the Welsh AllianceShocked though.

I was under the impression that the Welsh League and FAW were all in favour of the new Barry club to replace Barry Town,and I am surprised this one has not be favoured.

It all appears to be kicking off. MPs asking questions in Parliament and rumblings of a move for an EGM of the FAW.
