Welsh League football’s most challenging season ahead

In the 2013/14 season, a whopping 38 Premier League matches will be played in South Wales.

With football followers from Cardigan to Caldicot lured by the bright lights of England’s top flight, the coming campaign is poised to be the most challenging in the history of the Welsh League, in terms of attracting spectators, sponsorship and support.

With that in mind, we ask one question – wouldn’t the Welsh League benefit from including Barry and Llanelli and the raised profile each would bring to the competition?

Recent weeks suggest that some consider it fine to cut off your nose in order to spite your face.

But should the Welsh League really be making itself less attractive to the Welsh public, at a time when competition from its glamorous neighbours has never been greater?
