A week after the announcement that Rhyl would be liquidated, a group was formed to take forward the idea of a replacement club in Rhyl. Former Rhyl FC board members Adam Roche and Tom Jamieson agreed to work alongside the Rhyl Fans Association, with Jamieson taking the role of interim chairman. RFA members were balloted and overwhelmingly endorsed the approach.[
Rhyl Fans Association ran an online poll for supporters to chose a name for the new club. The unanimous choice was Rhyl FC which fans believed would be acceptable as the former full name of the closed club was Rhyl Football Club Belle Vue Limited. On advice from the Football Association of Wales the club were told a new name would be required.[RFA members were again balloted again with 82% voting. CPD Y Rhyl 1879 received 54.6% of the vote and AFC Rhyl received 45.4%.
The club announced it had officially submitted its application to the North Wales Coast FA to play tier four football in 2020–21.
