Welsh Alliance League club Amlwch Town send out recruitment cry as club threatened with withdrawal
Welsh Alliance League Division Two side Amlwch Town will withdraw from league and cup competitions if they are unable to recruit more players for the upcoming season.
The club have set a short-term deadline for next week, which is when their next pre-season match is scheduled for.
They were drawn in today’s JD Welsh Cup Qualifying Round One draw, where they were handed a home tie against Llandudno Amateur on the 1st September.
Amlwch Town have finished fifth in their last two seasons in the Welsh Alliance League, there highest ever finishes after being relegated to Division Two back in 2011.
Amlwch Town released a statement on their Facebook page saying:
“URGENT – Players needed for Amlwch men’s football team 2018/19 Season!
Amlwch is struggling to sign enough players for the men’s forthcoming season.
Despite the recent appointment of a new manager and significant sponsorship and funding in place, our 70+ year association with the North Wales League is in danger of ending (for a season, at least).
Time is running out. Unless we can field a team for a friendly next week, we’ll sadly have to withdraw from Welsh Alliance Division 2.”
Amlwch Town’s Women’s team and Walking Football are unaffected for the upcoming season and will continue to run but the men’s senior team could be withdrawn.
Players who are interested in joining the playing staff are instructed to contact manager Ryan McKean.
