Connah's Quay hit out over changes.

Byline: DAVE JONES

A FOOTBALL club set to lose their Welsh Premier status next season have slammed the league restructure and licensing process as "ill-conceived, badly planned and unfairly implemented".

Gap Connah's Quay have broken their silence over Welsh football's biggest shake-up in years which will see the WPL reduced from 18 clubs to an elite "Super 12" next term.

"We believe the restructuring was ill-conceived because the justification was based on other leagues around Europe, especially Scotland, running with a smaller number of clubs," says a Nomads statement.

"Every league and country has its own set of circumstances and has to be organised in a way that uses those circumstances as an opportunity for growth."

The Quay add it would have been good management practice to provide clubs going into the new structure with confidence it was going to work - and that they would be supported through problems experienced with the changes.

"But here we are a month from when the clubs should be planning their playing squads and the necessary administration for their fixtures and we don't know who will be in the league and what format they will be playing if they do remain in the league," it adds.

Nomads also believe the domestic licensing process has not been carried out fairly, claiming clubs have been given too little time and not enough support to get facilities up to scratch.
