The Evo-Stik League have confirmed that the number of clubs to be relegated from its West Division will change after Colwyn Bay’s decision to switch back to Welsh football.
The league released this statement:
The Northern Premier League can confirm receipt of the resignation of Colwyn Bay FC from the league effective at the end of the current season.
The club has successfully applied to the FA of Wales to play in the Welsh football pyramid from season 2019/20.
While the league is naturally disappointed to lose a member club, we understand their reasons for doing so, and we wish Colwyn Bay all the best for the future.
As a result of their resignation, the number of clubs being relegated from the EVO-STIK League West Division will be reduced as per league rule 12.6. This means that only the bottom placed club in the division, currently Skelmersdale United, at the end of the season will be relegated to step 5.
