It is sad but not unexpected news to confirm that following recent results from Druids and the teams around us, we have been relegated from the Cymru Premier League.
To clarify from the current standings, if Druids were to get maximum points from our remaining games, we would still just be unable to escape the bottom two. Barry Town and Connah’s Quay Nomads are yet to play each other and either side will earn enough points in that fixture to make it impossible for us to stay up. Regardless, it has been evident that this day was coming, and the club would like to issue a statement.
We are obviously deeply disappointed to be relegated from the league, as a club with a rich history in the top flight and notable European campaigns. It must be said that on the pitch, we simply haven’t met the standards required of the Cymru Premier League and have no excuses for being in this position. We are aware of all the online comments and posts aimed at the club by our fans and followers and completely share your frustrations. One can only imagine what it must be like for our players, coaches and staff who are putting their efforts in week in week out with little reward. However, it must be said, that of all the frustrations directed towards the club and our performances what’s rarely been questioned is the attitude and desire of our players. We would like to commend the players and coaches for continuing to play for the club and apply themselves in an extremely tough period. They will surely continue to do so for our remaining fixtures.
The club has a clear vision moving forward and will continue striving towards this despite being in the JD Cymru North next season. We still have plenty of exciting news to share in the coming weeks and will continue working tirelessly to get back to where the club belongs.
We would like to thank all our fans and followers who continued to stick by us through this extremely tough season. We know how hard it has been.
Our next fixture is at The Rock against Cardiff Met on Saturday the 26th March. The players and coaches would love your support as we close out Phase 2.
More than just a football club.
