Gap Connah’s Quay: Waiting game for Nomads legal challenge against FAW decision

LAWYERS are still poring over evidence as they prepare a legal challenge to the decision not to grant Gap Connah’s Quay a domestic licence.

After the Football Association of Wales was formally notified that a legal challenge would be mounted last week there has been no further developments as the Deeside club awaits news from their legal team.

The row erupted at the end of the Huws Gray Alliance season when Nomads, relegated in 2010 from the Welsh Premier League having failed to earn the domestic licence required to compete in the top flight, won the Alliance title and seemingly automatic promotion back into the Premier division.

Despite failing with their initial domestic licence application due to inadequate floodlights, they were advised that were the lights upgraded before their appeal was heard, they would likely be successful.

But an independent panel threw out the appeal despite the work being completed in time leaving no clubs promoted from the Alliance to the top tier of the Welsh game.
