MID Wales football will undergo yet another restructure this summer as the impact of the Welsh football pyramid review continues to be felt.

The two tier Mid Wales League was scrapped in 2020 despite its popularity and replaced with a regional set up divided west and east.

However the failure of south Cardiganshire and Aberystwyth League clubs to join meant the western league operated with a meagre seven clubs last season after being forced to draft in Llangadfan based Dyffryn Banw to make up the numbers.

While the eastern league proved more competitive it was also beset with problems with Newbridge folding before the start of the season while Presteigne St Andrews and Knighton Town also resigned.

Officials have now provisionally agreed the composition on next season’s leagues which will be regionally split between north and south.

County Times: Tywyn Bryncrig are MMP-NL Mid Wales League West champions.

Tywyn Bryncrig won the MMP-NL Mid Wales League West title last season.

The northern league will be made up of Abermule, Barmouth United, Bishop’s Castle, Carno, Churchstoke, Dyffryn Banw, Forden United, Four Crosses, Kerry, Llanfyllin Town, Llansantffraid, Meifod, Montgomery Town, Trefonen, Tywyn Bryncrug and Waterloo Rovers.

The southern league will be made up of Aberaeron, Aberystwyth University, Hay St Mary’s, Knighton Town, Llanilar, Penparcau, Penybont United, Presteigne St Andrews, Radnor Valley and Tregaron Turfs as well as either Newcastle Emlyn or Builth Wells.

One of the clubs is expected to make up the Ardal southern leagues next season.

Further complicating matters is the long-running saga between Aberbargoed Buds and the Football Association of Wales which could see Rhayader Town relegated should Buds win their appeal against a points deduction.

However all fourth tiers in Wales are now kicking their heels and unable to plan for next season due to the long wait for the FAW National Leagues Board to meet and finalise the Ardal leagues.
