Go West...(Or Should That Actually Be EAST?)
AK11 posted a topic in Western LeagueI have heard a rumour that, within the next few years, a few clubs currently playing in the Welsh leagues may try looking towards the English non-league system and dispense with the FAW's jurisdiction. This comes on the back of Rhyl and Connah's Quay making noises about switching to the North West Counties League last summer - the latter after they had been overlooked for promotion to the Welsh Premier League in favour of Afan Lido. The clubs in question are thought to include Bridgend Town and Barry Town, both of whom played in the English non-league system up until 1992. My question is, and please consider that the Western League will soon be 'topped up' with clubs, should Bridgend Town and Barry Town (and indeed other interested applicants from the other side of Offa's Dyke) be allowed to move across to the English non-league system. No doubt their grounds will easily be good enough for Step 3, but should they be made to start in Western 1 if they do decide that their future lies within the English non-league system?
