HUWS Gray Alliance leaders Caernarfon Town have revealed the reason behind the FAW's decision to grant the club a domestic licence for next season, which means they cannot be promoted to the Welsh Premier League.

"The Appeal Body were unable to award the Domestic Licence because the applicant was dissolved on 18th August 2015, due to no filing of accounts," says the FAW's letter of explanation. 

"The Appeal Body noted that the Licence Applicant has applied for reinstatement but as of the date of this hearing, the club had not been reinstated. 

"Therefore, based on the information currently available the Licence Applicant does not exist as a legal entity and therefore, cannot be granted a licence.

"Additionally, it was noted by the Appeal Body that that the Licence Applicant submitted abbreviated accounts only and annual audited accounts, in line with FAW Domestic Club Licensing Regulation F.OI, were not submitted.

"Finally, it was noted by the Appeal Body that the Licence Applicants year end was 31st May and the

Licence Applicant did not provide interim audited financial statements as per FAW Domestic Club Licensing Regulation F.02,"

The Canaries says that "they expected that all these matters had been sorted out to an acceptable standard but it seems that the ruling body was not in agreement with us.

"Members of the committee will be meeting the Canaries Club supporters group tomorrow where we will be discussing the matter further and hope to look at ways we can now move forward."

Meanwhile, unsuccessful WPL applicants Port Talbot Town issued a brief statement which says: "The club are saddened by the news and would like to apologise to all supporters of the club.

"The Blues’ first-team will now ply their trade next season in the Welsh Football League."
