SIX years after winning promotion to the Welsh Premier League, Llangefni Town have decided to resigned from the Lockstock Welsh Alliance League, the third tier of the pyramid, and drop into tier six.

The management team of Dyfed Thomas and Darren Meredith have left the club and a number of players decided that they did not wish not play for the team next season.

"The committee of Llangefni Town met to discuss the matter and decided that they would not have a team strong enough for the League's Division One, so decided to resigned from the League and just run one team next season in the Anglesey Football League," says a statement from Talwrn Road.

The League says it is "very disappointed in Llangefni's late decision" but would like to thank the club for the short time that they have been members.

Clubs who were due to play Llangefni Town in the August fixtures will now have an free date.

The arrival of manager Adie Jones from Colwyn Bay in 2006 saw Llangefni recover from a relatively poor start to the campaign to come with a late run and pip Bala Town to the Cymru Alliance title and clinch promotion.

But their first season in the Welsh Premier saw Jones and his successor Alex Kevan both sacked and they finished bottom to make a swift return to the Cymru Alliance.
