RADNORSHIRE will take no part in next season’s newly launched Central Wales under 19s league.
The seven club under 19s league will replace the current Mid Wales Youth structure after an annual meeting in Caersws this week.
Caersws, Waterloo Rovers, Llanidloes Town and Penrhyncoch, who competed in last season’s youth league, will be joined by Bow Street and Llanfair United in the new under 19s league.
Completing the membership is Gobowen, who must have their application ratified by the Shropshire Football Association prior to full acceptance.
However the league bid farewell to Newtown, who have joined Aberystwyth Town and TNS in the newly launched Welsh Premier under 19s league.
However the league has not been embraced by Central Wales clubs in mid and south Powys, with Llandrindod Wells and Presteigne maintaining their under 18s sections in the Herefordshire Floodlit Youth League.
League secretary Phil Jones said: “Fixtures in the under 19s league will be on a Sunday or under floodlights in the week if applicable.”
“It is an exciting development and thanks go to our fantastic main sponsors Welsh Beef and Lamb who have once again committed for the coming season.
“It is pleasing to go into next season with the same number of clubs as last season although it is disappointing to bid farewell to Llanymynech.
“Newtown will join the Welsh Premier under 19s league and we wish them all the best in their new challenge.”
