TOP flight football in Wales is back next month while Cymru North teams can look forward to cramming 15 games into 50 days in a bid to get their season done and dusted.

The Football Association of Wales released a statement about their plans for a return to action with the Cymru Premier League, which was suspended on December 22, looking to kick-off again on March 5.

The league, currently headed by The New Saints, is proposed to finish on May 31 where current champions Connah’s Quay Nomads hope to make it back-to-back title wins.

And after signing ex-Wrexham defenders Johnny Hunt and Doug Tharme as well as Tom Moore from Widnes, boss Andy Morrison has signed ex-Southampton and Tottenham winger, Rio Glean.

London-born Glean (pictured below) is a 19 year-old right winger who joins The Nomads having spent much of his young career in the U18 English Premier League and English Premier League 2 with Tottenham Hotspur and most recently Southampton.

Morrison said; ”I’m really pleased and excited - I’ve seen a lot of footage of him and we’ve spoke to people that he’s worked with and this year at times, we’ve gone a little bit different in a system with wing-backs and we’ve maybe not had that Woolfe, Wignall, Bakare - and nothing excites me more than a winger, someone that has the ability to face the full-back up and want to take them on.”

Meanwhile Flint Town United’s former Nomads and Chester goalkeeper John Danby has quit the club.

Danby told the club’s website: “ I’ve loved my time at the club, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Flint can accomplish in the Welsh Premier. And thanks to everyone for making me feel welcome.”

Jon Rushton looks like taking the gloves after securing a deadline day loan deal from Bala Town while new Silkmen boss Neil Gibson has also brought in a quartet of Warrington Town players - Evan Gumbs, Eddie Clarke, Mitch Duggan and Jordan Buckley - who have joined for the remainder of the season.

Also joining Flint and teaming up with former Prestatyn boss Gibson is midfielder Ross Weaver, who had signed on for neighbours Holywell Town last August.

It’s good news for teams in the Cymru North - including Holywell, Gresford, Buckley and Airbus - and teams in the South divisions. They won’t be back in action until March 20 with the league wanting all fixtures completed by May 29.

Holywell boss John Haseldin said: “We’ve been waiting for this news and it will be great to get back into the routine of playing football matches.”

The Welsh League Cup will continue while the Welsh Cup is due to start on April 20 and will feature just 44 teams from the Cymru divisions only.

The Welsh Premier Women’s League is also due to resume on March 5 and the cup competitions will also go ahead.
