wpl logo englishwpl logo cymraegHaverfordwest County were relegated to the Welsh Football League after just one season and their place is taken by Cardiff Metropolitan University. Port Talbot Town were also relegated to the same competition, despite finishing 12 points ahead of Rhyl, after they lost their FAW domestic licence, apparently because of financial difficulties. Cefn Druids bounced back after one season in the Huws Gray Alliance. There are now only two teams from South Wales in the competition.

the new saints fc crestTNS won the double again last season and are confidently expected to win their sixth successive title this time round. Suggestions that the club join the English pyramid have been dismissed by the chairman. He points out that they would lose the income from playing in Europe and suggests that it is up to the other teams in WPL to raise their standards to compete with his team. This season the team played four European matches (bringing in over £1 million), going out in the Second Qualifying Round against APOEL Nicosia.
