Connah's Quay Nomads can today confirm that the court case of The New Saints vs Football Association of Wales has been dismissed.

The Oswestry-based side had challenged the league's governing body's decision to curtail the JD Cymru Premier season due to the Covid-19 outbreak, however the judge, Mr Justice Marcus Smith has this morning dismissed the case.

As a result, we can confirm that Connah's Quay Nomads will retain our first ever JD Cymru Premier title, and will also enter the UEFA Champions' League Qualifying Round One on 18/19 August as originally scheduled.

We can now look forward to hopefully resuming training this week as we plan ahead for an exciting time in the club's history. We would like to place on record our thanks to the FAW and the Association's Board of Directors for their dilligence and professionalism throughout the case.

First Team Manager, Andy Morrison said; "Hopefully we, like Bala Town and Barry Town, can now get on with our European preparation - we have prided ourselves on our performances in Europe and our preparation has always been meticulous. Through no fault of our own, we are 2-3 weeks behind where we should be and only time will tell how that will effect us."
