BARRY Town have made a last-ditch attempt to avoid relegation by lodging a complaint against one of the teams set to be promoted.
The Dragons have written to the league to complain about the proposed ground-share of Cymru Alliance leaders Airbus UK at Morfa Conwy.
Barry director and secretary David Cole says: "The rules say that to ground share with another club, the club's ground must meet the requirements of the Welsh Premier.
"In the FAW's won inspection report, which was published in the Welsh Premier Times a few weeks ago, they said then that Conwy United's ground needed a significant amount of work to bring it up to standard.
"We believe that standard had to have been reached by 14 February, which is when the ground share agreement was signed."
The League have approved the Airbus ground share for a maximum of 12 months, on condition that their own Broughton home was brought up to Welsh Premier criteria.
The League also indicated that substantial improvements were necessary at Conwy before a further inspection in May.
Airbus manager Rob Lythe recently stated that they hoped to be playing on their own ground by the end of September, once special retractable floodlights have been installed.
