True but I seem to remember at the time, Alun Evans WFA didn't really fight our corner but I suppose the threat to the national team had to be priority

No I remember that the Welsh FA had to set up the League of Wales (as it was then known) to maintain Wales as an independent football nation within FIFA and had to support the clubs who played in their league so made sure those clubs benefited from European qualification as oppose to clubs playing in the English pyramid

Yes this

All the clubs playing in England like Merthyr, Oswestry Town, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay were really shat on. Where they all now? Gone into oblivion mainly.
Yes the big 4 as it were couldn’t play in welsh cup but at least the league they were playing in was competitive-We were the best of the 4 at the time but how things have changed.

A man who did little for Welsh Sport. Alun represented himself first. - second and third !!!!

He was a success as a student sports administrator and there he should have stayed.

More fool their administrators at the time. They should have remained in the English system. Players wanted to and many fans did as well but they followed that crack pot WFA dream.

The excluusion of the Welsh teams that pllay in the English pyramid has turned Wellsh football into a joke. European teams had a genuine fear of playing at The Racecourse in our glory days.
Is there a decent team in Europe that would fear the current crop from the WFA?
