THE Costcutter Football League is set for a shake-up next season with Newcastle Emlyn joining a new Mid Wales League and another unidentified club apparently on the verge of moving up a division.

Cardigan Town also applied to be part of a new tier 4 under Football Association of Wales restructuring, but withdrew and will remain in the Costcutter.

It is understood that as far as Cardigan was concerned, distance and travelling complications made such a venture unviable.

The withdrawal was met with disappointment at a Central Wales FA meeting on Thursday when general secretary David Hinton Jones said Town would have been a welcome addition.

Aberaeron, of the Spar Mid Wales League ,have been accepted into the set-up along with Cambrian Tyres Aberystwyth League champions Tregaron.

After confirming that a second Costcutter club could be on the verge of being included in the Mid Wales competition, he refused a request by local league chairman John Jones to identify the club.

The secretary explained that the club concerned specifically asked not to be named unless definitely joining tier 4.

There have been rumblings in south Ceredigion that the mystery club is Llandysul, but secretary Emma Williams said the Swallows were definitely not joining the league.

Asked at the weekend for a transparent approach and identification of the second Costcutter club interested in joining tier 4, David Hinton Jones said he could not give any information at this stage but added: “Watch this space.”

The CWFA annual general meeting is on August 6.

Costcutter chairman John Jones said it was necessary for the Costcutter to be aware of any changes in order to make preparations for next season.

As it stands it is intended to have nine clubs in the tier 4 west league and 12 in the east section.
