Maes TegidTHERE will be a three-week delay in the Welsh Premier split to allow clubs to catch-up with postponed fixtures due to the bad weather.
The first half of the season will now be extended from January 15 to February 5 after the league's management panel gave the green light to a proposal from secretary John Deakin.
"I’ll be e-mailing the clubs with a revised fixture list," Deakin told the Daily Post.
"The February 5 date will allow us an additional three weekends to complete the league programme.
"On January 22, the Loosemores Cup final will be played, but I can arrange league matches around that, and the following weekend is the Welsh Cup, but I can also get a couple of games in then for clubs who are out of the competition.
"Looking at the weather forecast, it looks inevitable that we are going to lose Boxing Day and December 27 games, so I’ll put all the local derbies down for February 5, making them the last games before the split."
Llanelli have the largest backlog and have now re-arranged games with Bangor City (home) for Wednesday January 5, Haverfordwest County (home) on Tuesday January 11, Neath (away) on Tuesday January 18 and Newtown (away) on Tuesday January 25.
Other re-arranged fixtures are Bala v Newtown (Wednesday January 5) and Newtown v Airbus (Saturday January 22).
