Post by: spectator on January 30, 2009, 06:10:38 PM
These are the  successful clubs who have gained entry to the new league next season
South Wales,
                  UWIC, Swansea, Newcastle Emlyn,and Manorbier with Llanelli as reserve if any of these clubs withdraw

North Wales
                Wrexham, Caernarfon, Aberystwyth,and Llanidloes, with Kinmel Bay first reserve, and Colwyn Bay second reserve if any of these clubs withdraw.
                                                                     At last some progress in  womens football in Wales.

I'm surprised Kinmel bay are first reserve before Colwyn Bay - Kinmel Bay have no points so far, and have lost all 4 games, yet Colwyn Bay currently lead the table with 15 points from 6 games - and they beat Kinmel Bay last game (I only just found this from fgmag.com).
In fact Colwyn Bay are currently 5 points ahead of Wrexham from the same number of games.

How has this been arranged? - anything political or financial?

Is this a forerunner of what the English elite league is going to be like?

And - what about the teams not selected - will they play in separate leagues?

Please tell us more!

From what I understand the new league will run along side the leagues already in progress as another compretition.So for example Caernarfon Town will still be playing in the North Wales League but will play in the new league as well.

North Wales teams in the new league will play each other and the south will play each other.The team with the most points from north and south will then play against each other to decide which team will be playing in Europe.(This is just what I have been told,ill try get more information) :)

Welsh Premier League Kicks Off
 
Thursday September 24th
WELSH WOMEN'S PREMIER LEAGUE
NORTHERN SECTION
Aberystwyth Town 2
Llanidloes Town 0

The first ever game in the Welsh Women's Premier League took place last night and Aberystwyth Town made a winning start, defeating visitors Llanidloes Town bt two goals to nil, watched by a crowd of 348.

Sam Gaunt netted the new competitions first goal midway through the second-half, with the result not confirmed until Lianne Bray scored the second in stoppage time.

League Secretary, John Deakin, told FAW.org.uk; "It was a very good opening game to the league and I was very pleased with the crowd who came-along to see Welsh football history being made.

"The competition promises to be an exciting one and can only benefit domestic and international football in Wales."

On Sunday, Caernarfon Town host Wrexham, in the other Northern Section opening fixture.

In the Southern Section, UWIC start at home to Swansea City and
Manobier entertain Newcastle.

As the first round of league fixtures get underway, there is more than just a title at stake, as the winners will gain a place in next season's UEFA Women's Champions League.

Caernarfon probably the team to beat again.
Was their attendance anything like that at Aberystwyth (which was amazing)?

Perhaps I should watch S4C more - they always seem to have rugby on when I watch :(

Anyway - 30 is nearly half of what Everton get for a normal game - and they are a top side in a bigger country (by population and size I mean  ;D)
