Double licence success for the Saints

THE New Saints' have been successful in their bid for the FAW domestic licence, ensuring that Welsh Premier football will remain at Park Hall next season.

The club has also gained the Uefa licence once again, ensuring that Oswestry can stage a European tie for the second year running.
It is the sixth consecutive year that the Saints have gained a licence to play in Europe and both achievements are a tribute to the work of general manager Ian Williams, who is probably the most experienced administrator in the league when it comes to the licensing process.
"I am delighted with the achievement and would like to express our thanks to Andrew Howard and David Miller at the FAW for their unstinting help," says Williams.
Eight clubs were granted the licence - a pre-requisite to play in next season's top flight - by the FAW First Instance Body meeting in Cardiff today.
The successful applicants were Aberystwyth Town, Carmarthen Town, Haverfordwest County, Llanelli, Neath, Newtown, Prestatyn Town and The New Saints.
Clubs are assessed on their stadium, youth development, personnel, administration, legal, finances and charters.
The unsuccessful clubs have a second chance to gain the licence through an appeals process, with the final decisions to be announced on May 17.
