LLANFAIR United look set to miss out on the North Wales Women’s Football League following an end of season farce.

United had needed to win their final game of the season against Kinmel Bay by three clear goals to overhaul leaders Bethel and secure the title on goal difference.

However Kinmel Bay Football Club has refused to fulfil the fixture and cited a player shortage behind their decision which has led the North Wales League executive committee to award United a 2-0 victory and three points.

It means United miss out on the title by a goal.

League secretary Huw Jones said: “The league has tried to get Kinmel Bay to fulfil the fixture but it will not be played by May 31.

“If this is the case the leaguer executive committee has decided that Llanfair will win the match by default but only a 2-0 margin which means Bethel win the league on goal difference.

“I believe Llanfair have appealed over the decision to the North East Wales Football Association over the league conclusion.”

NEWFA spokesman Dave Fawkes confirmed an appeal had been made.

“NEWFA has asked both parties for further information,” said Fawkes.

It is the second season in succession the league has been beset with problems with last season dominated by a three month long battle between the league and Football Association of Wales (FAW) over the admission of Rhyl Reserves.

Llanfair United were contacted for comment but did not respond by the the time the County Times went to press.
