LILYWHITES RELEGATED; Rhyl fail to win Super 12 licence.
TWO-times Welsh Premier champions Rhyl have been relegated to the Cymru Alliance.
It is a massive blow to the club and the Welsh top-flight, the Lilywhites - one of the best supported teams in the division - have been demoted after failing to win a licence for the new Super 12 league on appeal.
Rhyl yesterday blamed their well-documented financial problems for the FAW's decision.
They will be joined by Gap Connah's Quay and Llangefni Town in the second flight after both teams also failed to secure approval.
Airbus, Bangor City and Bala Town's bids, however, were all successful.
