Connah’s Quay Nomads, Prestatyn Town, Swansea University and Swansea City Ladies have been crowned champions of their respective divisions following the decision made by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) Board of Directors to curtail the remainder of the 2019/20 season for Tiers 1 to 4.
The decision, which was ratified by the Board of Directors following a recommendation from the National League Board was approved on Tuesday 19th May 2020.
A full statement from the FAW can be found on the Association's website here.
Consequently, Connah's Quay Nomads, Swansea University, Prestatyn Town and Swansea City Ladies have been crowned as champions of their respective divisions for the 2019/20 season.
The curtailment of the season means that the Nomads have ben crowned champions of the #JDCymruPremier, ending The New Saints’ eight year run in the competition en route to securing their maiden title.
Meanwhile, Swasea City Ladies regained the domestic title, after Cardiff Met were crowned champions last term in the Women’s top flight.
And in the first year of the JD Cymru South and North, Swansea University won the title after a battle with Haverfordwest County, despite it being the Students’ first year in the second tier, whilst Prestatyn were named champions after a relentless season in which they led the race from very early on.
As a result, the JD Cymru Premier and Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League European competition nominations were determined as follows:
- UEFA Champions League – Connah’s Quay Nomads (1st Place)
- UEFA Europa League – The New Saints (2nd Place)
- UEFA Europa League – Bala Town (3rd Place)
- UEFA Women’s Champions League – Swansea City Ladies (1st Place)
The FAW Board are yet to decide on promotion and relegation between leagues with a decision to be made in due course, taking into account full consideration of the FAW’s Pyramid Regulations.
