A PROVISIONAL start date to possibly bring the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance leagues to a successful conclusion has been issued.

The Journal understands that Tiers 3-4 plan to get competitive action back underway on June 6, providing social distancing measures have been relaxed by the UK government.

This will also depend on it being “safe to do so”, with the Football Association of Wales extending the current domestic fixture suspension until May 15 at the earlies due to the ongoing concerns regarding coronavirus.

If they are able to get back underway at the scheduled date, it would leave teams facing huge pressure to play their remaining league and cup fixtures in such a short space of time.

It would then give them a shortened break over the summer before starting the 2020/21 campaign.

This is good news for teams such as Denbigh Town and Holyhead Hotspur, who are contesting for promotion back to JD Cymru North at the first opportunity.

Llandudno Albion would also welcome the news, with the club set to embark on their first ever FAW Trophy final before the suspension.

The league structure is set to undergo a significant makeover from the FAW following the season, with new criteria measures set to demote clubs such as Kinmel Bay and Prestatyn Sports, who are unable to meet the new regulations.

Things look more promising for St Asaph City FC, who are on target to get their facilities up to standard by the extended May 31 deadline thanks to an incredible effort from volunteers’ after flood damage earlier this year.
