RHYL STILL PURSUING ENGLISH 'DREAM'
RHYL FC is still pursuing the possibility of playing in the English league system, it emerged at the club's annual meeting.
Director Peter Parry said a move into the English pyramid might still happen, despite the club just having had its most successful season for 50 years in Welsh football.
Not only did Rhyl win the League of Wales Cup last season, they also reached the semi-finals of the lucrative FAW Welsh Premier and Welsh Cups.
The Lilywhites also came sixth in the Welsh Premier League - their joint best ever position - and missed out on a place in Europe by just two points.
It was two years ago that Rhyl FC first mooted its future could lie in English leagues.
The League of Wales said at the time it would strongly oppose Rhyl's departure and the plans were put on hold.
When asked at last Friday's poorly attended AGM if the club is still considering the move, Mr Parry said: "Very much so. In an ideal world we would like to run sides in both English and W elsh leagues, but that is unlikely to happen.
"But we are still pursuing it. We have taken it as far as we can to a certain stage before looking at it again.
"We are investigating all angles. J B Williams, our former chairman, who is now one of our new consortium of directors, has a lot of contacts in both English and Welsh football and he is involved in the process."
