Barry awarded Welsh Premier license
Barry Town United have been awarded a Welsh Premier League domestic license, paving a way for their return to the top flight.
The Welsh League Division One leaders fly high atop the league with a five point buffer over competitors Goytre. With the recent news of their successful application for a domestic license, the South Wales outfit look poised to make a return to the Welsh Premier League, if they can hold on to a top two spot in the remaining games.
Barry have been sure favourites all season and have undoubtedly turned on the form in the second half of the season. Haverfordwest County have been refused the license in the first instance for the 2017/18 season, and so with just five games to go, Barry need just nine points to confirm their place in the promotion spots and their return, barring a big goal difference swing.
They were awarded the license last season, but fell short in their push for promotion as Cardiff Met pipped them to the trophy. However, with the former Welsh Premier League champions atop Division One, and a license granted, their fate is in their own hands in the final leg of the season.
If the club make a famous return to the division, they will be joined in the top flight by Prestatyn Town, who were also given the green light for their promotion earlier today.
