Llanelli recently exited the Europa league in the group stages, which has persuaded manager Andy Legg to consider a return to summer football.
The club were hoping to get into the latter stages of the qualifying round of the Europa league, which would have given them a real opportunity to play in the group stages of the competition. However, they were beaten 3-2 by finish club KuPS in the first qualifying round. Following the exit from the competition at this early stage, Andy Legg has said that it would be a right time to consider return to summer football.
This is due to the fact that other Welsh clubs like Cefn Druids and Bangor have also come out of the Europa league at this early stage. Due to the fact that a number of the Welsh clubs were taking part in the Europa league, the dates of the league cup competition this season had to be changed by the Welsh football Association. Due to the fact that the club have not made it into the latter stages of the Europa league, Andy Legg has proposed a return to summer football because it would be simply better. The three teams were the only participants from the Welsh league in the Europa league.
"I'll certainly back it if it happened in Wales because I think it's something that needs to come in. I'm a traditionalist. I like to play at Christmas and the winter time. But I think it's something the league needs to address. I think it's something they should look at. I think it will improve crowds dramatically [and] I think will improve press coverage. [It's] very difficult coming into a competitive game when you're playing somebody who's played/18/19 games in a season," said the Llanelli manager Andy Legg after his club's exit from the Europa league.
