I didn't think Cymru north or south had played any fixtures at all yet?
So, is there an intention (if things can resume) to play a full half-season?
Or just play whatever is possible even if 8 or 10 games each for example?

Have they considered a summer season in Wales? I'm sure it was talked about a few years ago to give their teams a better chance in Europe, and lower down the Welsh pyramid not as much competition from cricket as in England.

They haven't played at all yet. They were due to start in January and play each other once only but the latest lockdown prevented that. It depends on when they can resume whether even that is possible.

They don't appear to have announced any change to their original plans of playing a full half-season, or 15 games per club. As they've also given themselves a provisional 70 day window to complete the competitions, I imagine they're still hoping to do that. "Hoping" being the operative word!

The proposed playing calendar for Cymru North and South to start is 20 March to 29 May. I take it thats a 3 week-run in (as before) for warm-up matches and training but this would only be viable should the Welsh Government drop to Tier 3 at their review on 27 February. Thats a very grey area at present as infection rates are down but the sticking point is hospital critical care is running at 138%.

Would suit "hoppers" too.
Then again so would absolutely anything right now

No update as yet following the Welsh Governments' 3 week extension announcement last friday (19 Feb).
Everything is pretty much the same until 12 March i.e. leisure centres all closed. Earlier in the season the FAW announced a 3 week “run-in” before football could start and should things still be the same that’ll mean a start on Good Friday (2 April) and a 60 day window to complete the Welsh Premier and North & South Championships.
All other football is suspended for 2020-21 season. Whether there will be inter-clubs friendlies allowed - who knows?

Tier 1 is restarting from next week. There are fixtures showing for Saturday 6th March. This is down to the Cymru Premier and its women's equivalent being given elite status despite the lack of full-time professionals in most clubs. Both leagues will be re-starting and aiming to finish their seasons by the end of May. There's no word on the tier 2 leagues, which don't have elite status and so have to wait for a general lifting of restrictions. I wouldn't hold out much hope even of a half season if they can't start until late March.

Glamorgan CC will be happy in that case.
I'm told football leagues have been asked on the feasabilty of starting the season earlier in case there's another lockdown mid-winter

I keep getting emails for Glamorgan games T20, The 100, International matches, etc to book tickets - so I mistakenly took it as a summer return! If the rates consistently go down (64:100K today) Drakeford will be under pressure shortly assuming of course he gets through the May elections unscathed
