After Thursday's Licencing meeting, it has been confimred that Carmarthen Town will remian in the WPL for the 2018-19 Season. 


Chris Edwards, chairman of Carmarthen Town AFC, said -
"Everyone at Richmond Park is delighted to hear the news of Carmarthen's Welsh Premier League reprieve.
"We'd resigned ourselves to starting next season in a lower division, but we can now continue our 22-year run in the top tier of Welsh football.
"Players, fans, officials, supporters and sponsors will be delighted with the news, which comes on the eve of our final game of the season, against Barry Town tomorrow evening.
"As a club we continued to work hard on and off the field throughout the season, securing new players for Phase 2 and gaining our UEFA and Tier One licences. This work reflects great credit on everyone involved. 
"Staying in the Welsh Premier League is a massive boost for Carmarthen Town. It's been a difficult season for us, but we have the infrastructure in place (in particular our new 3G pitch) and the enthusiasm and the drive to improve on our Premier League performances.
"The reprieve is a welcome piece of news and we look forward to planning and rebuilding ready for the new Premier League season.”
Club director Gareth Jones welcomes the  decision.

"It is nice to hear something positive at the end of the season," said Jones.

"Having gone through a lot of emotion this season, we have had a positive outcome at the end.

"Relegation would have been a problem for us to raise our hopes again. Thankfully we don't have to worry about that now."
