FAW Tier two league formed in 1990


after a sponsorship agreement was agreed between Huws Gray and the league for the next three seasons.  The league cup was also renamed becoming the HUWS GRAY CUP. After the reduction of the Welsh Premier league to twelve clubs the league kicked off with sixteen teams including six relegated from the WPL.

As expected they made the running for the title with three of them Gap Connahs Quay, Rhyl and Cefn Druids the main contenders.

This turned into a two horse race as the season drew to an end with Gap Connahs Quay winning the title with nine points to spare. They also did the league proud by reaching the Welsh cup semi-final.

it was a torrid season for one of the six relegated clubs, Technogroup Welshpool. Who finished the season with no points after having eighteen deducted for playing ineligible players and failing to fulfill a fixture.

The Huws Gray cup was contested by Guilsfield and Porthmadog with Guilsfield wiinning the trophy for the first time. At the AGM it was confirmed that Technogroup Welshpool, Rhayader Town and Rhydymwyn would be relegated with Penycae (Welsh National League), Llanrhaeadr YM (Mid Wales League) and Conwy United (Welsh Alliance League) would pelace them after winning their respective leagues.


New look Cymru Alliance for 2010/11

Despite opposition to the FAW’s decision to reduce the Welsh Premier league to twelve clubs the Cymru Alliance League AGM held at Gresford Athletic on Saturday 20th June 2010 was concluded with the minimum of fuss. In fact, business was concluded within a record forty five minutes. A credit to the manner in which the league continues to be run.

Following the major restructuring of the Welsh football pyramid, it was inevitable that one of the biggest impacts would fall on the Cymru Alliance.

It was extremely sad to see 10 teams get relegated to tier three of Welsh Football. A sad day indeed in particular for LEX XI who were the only side who have been ever-present since the league was formed almost 20 years ago.

It was recognised that Llangefni Town, despite being last season's champions, failed to get promotion to the top flight due to the fact that they were unable to achieve a Domestic Licence.

So, to put an end to much speculation, the Cymru Alliance will consist of existing sides Buckley Town, Flint Town United, Guilsfield, Llandudno, Llangefni Town, Penrhyncoch and Ruthin Town.

Added to this list are the following clubs who have been relegated from the Welsh Premier League: Caersws, Cefn Druids, GAP Connahs Quay, Porthmadog, Technogroup Welshpool and Rhyl.

Making up the 16 club league will be promoted sides Rhayader,  Rhos Aelwyd and Rhydymwyn.

The clubs whose tenure has ended in the Cymru Alliance were
Berriew, Bethesda Athletic, Caernarfon Town, Denbigh Town,  Gresford Athletic, Holyhead Hotspur, Lex XI, Llanfairpwll, Llangollen Town and Mold Alexandra.
