Colwyn Bay have announced that the club’s shareholders have voted to apply to return to the Welsh football pyramid next season.
The Bay are currently 10th in the Evo-Stik West Division, but chairman Bill Murray has said it is vital for the future of the club that they opt to return to Welsh football. Murray said, in quotes published by the BBC last night: “My main concern was that the club survived and the only way that was going to happen was by going into the Welsh system.
“If we stay in England we won’t survive as a club. The immediate task is to focus on seeing out the remainder of the season, and then work starts in earnest on formulating a plan to take the club forward.”
The North Wales side left Welsh football in 1984, joining Division Three of the North West Counties League in England.
