COLWYN Bay forward Julian Williams thinks the JD Cymru Premier could go to 14 teams next season.

The Football Association of Wales will finally come to a decision regarding the future of the domestic season this week after weeks of meetings and speculation, which could see the prospect of an increased number of top-flight teams heading into next term.

Williams, who spent two weeks in quarantine following his return to the UK after a spell in Australia, believes that promotion should still be granted, but the prospect of relegation for teams who have a large amount of fixtures still to play would be unfair.

He said: “I think they should 100 per cent try and complete the season because summer is a great time to play fixtures with the weather and it saves on having a pre-season, so we can hit the ground running when next season starts.

"If it cannot resume, then I think the current positions in the table should stand. That would mean Prestatyn are champions and get promoted if they get their licence as they are well clear at the top, but no teams in the relegation zone should go down. That, of course, would result in the WPL having more teams next season."

Williams returned for a second spell at the Seagulls’ this summer after signing from Porthmadog. He played a huge part in the first half of the campaign before eventually opting for a move to the southern hemisphere.

He eventually made 24 appearances for Craig Hogg’s side during their first season back in the Welsh domestic system, scoring nine and also contributing five assists.

The talented player netted both goals in Bay’s 2-0 derby triumph over Llandudno, in addition to a thunderbolt at Nantlle Vale in the JD Welsh Cup.
