Welsh Premier League Launched

The new 2014/2015 Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League season was officially launched at the Beaches Hotel, Prestatyn on Thursday the 14th of August.

The New Saints’ Steve Evans is a member of the WPL Hall of Fame and highlighted that, ‘There is a lot of talent in the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League and I believe that individual players and the league itself is beginning to get the recognition it deserves.’

Following consultation with the member clubs it was decided to continue with the format of beginning the season with two matches over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Last season’s experiment proved popular with supporters and contributed towards an increase in average attendances during the season.

The first fixture for The Saints will be a home game against Play-Off winners, Bangor City and three days later, Craig Harrison’ s Champions will travel to Aberystwyth Town.
