The Seagulls currently sit 10th in the Northern Premier League Division One West.
Shareholders of the club voted on Thursday (8 March) evening to return to the Welsh pyramid system, a decision that chairman Bill Murray agreed with: “What I want most is to see this football club survive and I am pleased that a decision has been taken that I believe gives us the best chance of achieving that.”
Colwyn Bay have competed in the English system for the last 34 years, having joined in the 1984/85 season.
Financial troubles in recent times have contributed to the club taking the decision to return to the Welsh system.
The following statement released early on Friday morning explained how the vote worked, and when they expect to discover which tier of the pyramid system they will be allocated to.
Chairman Murray concluded today’s statement by saying: “A further statement will follow once the application process has concluded.”
