Rhyl criticise league over final farce

ARRANGEMENTS for the Loosemores League Cup final between Rhyl and The New Saints are still uncertain after the FAW suggested a new date of Sunday 9 May.

Rhyl have informed the league that this date is unacceptable with a number of players being unavailable and secretary Kevin Davies criticised the situation, saying: "It is very disappointing that, after several games had been re-arranged not once but on two separate occasions, we are no nearer resolving the date of what is, after all, a very prestigious competition.
"We understand, given the number of postponements due to bad weather that have occurred, the difficulties in arranging fixtures but surely a date could have been confirmed at the start of the season so that clubs would know in advance when the final was to be played, after all the semi-finals were completed in November.
"We have had discussions with The New Saints and have written to the secretary of the league, John Deakin, to suggest that the game be played on Tuesday 27 April at Airbus with a 7.30pm kick off and we hope that we receive a favourable response as soon as possible."
