NEWTOWN are the only Welsh Premier club to be granted a Uefa license for 2004/5 following a meeting of the FAW's club licensing first instance body this week.
The remaining 16 clubs have been given the opportunity to appeal to the body, which meets again in mid-May.
The first instance body commended clubs on the great strides that they had made during the season in working towards the license, which is a pre-requisite for participation in Uefa club competitions.
"Providing the few non-compliances are rectified, they see no reason why appeals should not be successful," says a statement from the FAW.
This is particularly important for Haverfordwest, Rhyl, TNS and other clubs who fill the European places.
The FAW says club licensing administrator Andrew Howard will be doing all he can to ensure that the clubs complete this arduous process on schedule.
