Plenty of new names will take to the field when the North East Wales Football League kicks off later this summer.

Fresh starters in the tier 4 and 5 league will include CPD Yr Wyddgrug (Mold) and Wrexham-based Skippy FC, while there is a welcome return for Plas Madoc.

From Cefn Mawr, Wrexham, Plas Madoc previously formed in 2017-18 and won the former North East Wales League in their first season.

They followed up by finishing top of the old Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Division One in 2018-19 without tasting a single defeat.

In the shortened 2019-20 campaign, Plas ended up 12th in the WNL Premier Division.

When football returned in 2021-22 after the 2020-21 campaign was cancelled due to the pandemic, Madoc were no more. The club will be known as FC Plas Madoc in 2023-24.

Meanwhile, CPD Sychdyn have folded as the set up has gone to Rhydymwyn, who return to football in the tier 5 Championship Division.

Coming down from tier 3 into the North East Wales Premier Division are the illustrious names of Corwen and Rhostyllen.
