Barry Town United wins Welsh League court battle

A football club that was once the most powerful in Welsh domestic football has won its high court battle to play in the Welsh League again.

Barry Town was withdrawn from the league in May by its previous owner and faced playing parks football.

The club had reapplied for full Football Association of Wales (FAW) membership but was refused by the FAW council.

A judge ruled the FAW council had acted unlawfully in not reinstating the club.

Matt Murray was in court.
