CALLS have been made to incorporate a second tier to the North Wales Women's League.

Next season Llanfair United and Llanidloes Town will compete in the 14 club league but hopes are high a regional second tier could be established in Central Wales  in the near future.

Welsh FA life vice president Phil Jones said: “A lot of work is going into developing future players and the girls game is thriving in Powys

“The region needs a women’s league, perhaps feeding into the North Wales League in a similar way the South Wales League has a two tier system.”

Berriew Juniors coach Paul Inns echoed the sentiments.

“I am trying to establish a women’s side at Berriew, we have the pitch, facilities and set-up but we are lacking the players at the moment.

“Obviously a team needs a league to compete and perhaps a regional division for sides like Berriew just starting out would be a good idea for Central Wales.”
