Third tier to be scrapped?

Llanelli Star - - SOCCER -

COST­CUT­TER Foot­ball League clubs are to con­sider a pos­si­ble change in the league set-up by scrap­ping di­vi­sion three.

The mat­ter is top of the agenda at the league’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in Ffos­tra­sol on Tues­day, July 9, at 7.30pm, when clubs will dis­cuss a sug­ges­tion at a re­cent league meet­ing by sec­re­tary Geraint Davies.

As it stands there are 24 teams split into three di­vi­sions, but last sea­son there were only 14 league games in the third tier, which had only five teams.

Mr Davies sug­gests 12 teams in two di­vi­sions, with the 11-strong first di­vi­sion in­creased to 12 with pro­mo­tion from the sec­ond tier for top three Dewi Stars, Aber­porth and Maes­glas.

The bot­tom two in the first di­vi­sion – Bar­god Rangers and Aber­aeron Re­serves – would be rel­e­gated, bring­ing the num­ber of teams in the sec­ond di­vi­sion, cur­rently eight-strong, to 12.

Also at the AGM, Rhys Evans of Aber­porth will stand down as chair­man af­ter his two-year stint. He will be re­placed by John Jones of Dewi Stars.
