Airbus UK Broughton have won the Cymru Alliance title after victory over Holywell Town today.
A convincing 4-0 win against Holywell Town in which Asa Hamilton, James Hooper, Kristian Platt and Nomads loanee Nathan Woolfe all scored meaning Airbus did their part as they chased the title. Flint Town United’s defeat to Buckley Town confirmed the North Walian title would be heading to The Airfield.
Airbus will now have to wait to see if their Tier One licence application has been successful, so they can be confirmed as a Welsh Premier League side. Last season their application was successful.
The Wingmakers have been in fine form this season and have won the title in their second attempt after being relegated from the Premier League in 2017.
Manager Stephen O’Shaughnessy replaced Andy Thomas as manager in November 2017 after initially being appointed as Assistant Manager in 2016.
Under O’Shaughnessy’s guidance, Airbus have repeated their success from the 2003/2004 season where they won the Cymru Alliance title.
Messages of congratulations poured into Airbus on social media as clubs, ex-players and fans alike all congratulated the club on their success.
Elsewhere, Llanelli Town’s Premier League status is hanging by a thread after they suffered defeat to the Cefn Druids at Steboneath Park. A late Cardiff Met goal from Will Evans secured their status for another week. If they lose in their next fixture to Aberystwyth Town, then they will be relegated.
