Barry Town are top of the Welsh Football League Division One

Prestatyn Town will play in the Welsh Premier League (WPL) just months after they survived a winding up petition.

Prestayn fans raised £53,000 for the Cymru Alliance champions and now they have been granted an FAW domestic licence.

The Welsh Football League Division One leaders Barry Town United were awarded the licence for a second season.

The former WPL winners will return to the top tier for the first time since 2004 if they finish in the top two.

Also at the Football Association of Wales licensing meeting, all existing WPL clubs were awarded the Domestic Licence, but Rhyl and Airbus UK Broughton were refused the UEFA Licence.
