LLANIDLOES Town Football Club has topped an online poll to be crowned Mid Wales League club of the 1950s.

The County Times has delved back into the archive and more than 100 years of football across the region.

With the advent of a new Football Association of Wales (FAW) pyramid the Mid Wales League will split into regional divisions next season.

It marks the end of an era for football in mid Wales.

The County Times online polls have asked readers to choose their team of each decade.

Aberystwyth Town and Llanidloes Town began the decade on top with both lifting a championship in 1950 and 1951.

However the emergence of Tonfannau, a now defunct military club from Tywyn, changed the pecking order of Mid Wales football with the club winning three successive titles from 1952 to 1954 before Kington Town ended their spell of dominance in 1955.

Tonfannau won three further back to back championships from 1956 to 1958 before the decade ended with Aberystwyth Town winning the title in 1959.

Last month the County Times asked readers to vote for the top club of the decade on social media.

Llanidloes Town Football Club topped the poll with 54 per cent of the vote with traditional mid Wales rivals Aberystwyth Town second with 24 per cent.

English border side Kington Town ended third with 11 per cent with the now defunct Tonfannau ending fourth with 10 per cent.

The latest resilts ensure the Daffodils winners of the last three polls with the club already topping a poll for the best Mid Wales League club of the 1930s and 1940s.

Next week the County Times will reveal the winners of its poll to decide the top club from the 1980s.
