Llanfairfechan Town Football Club desperately needs upgraded facilities – its future depends on it.
The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League club have launched an online petition calling on Conwy County Borough Council to give the go-ahead for The Recreation Ground to undergo a much-required new lease of life.
Club chairman Marc Shepherd said: “Our facilities are in desperate need of modernisation. We currently use facilities that were constructed in the 1960’s and over the years they have become unfit for purpose.
“This, along with the upcoming changes to grassroots football across Wales, means we are seeking support to extend our lease that will allow us to apply for suitable funding to replace the existing facilities at The Recreation Ground.
“Our aim is to replace the existing changing rooms to future-proof football within the community of Llanfairfechan.”
Llanfairfechan Town FC has had a long standing within the community. Records date back to football being played competitively as early as 1909.
In 1927 the team hosted Cardiff Corinthians in a cup tie which was famously kicked off by former prime minister David Lloyd George.
Over the years the club has experienced challenging and glorious occasions which has left a mark on many of its members, their friends and their families.
Its goal is to keep delivering these experiences for its members, their friends and their families of the future.
The chairman added: “The future of our club is the youth of Llanfairfechan. We want our youths to have the best facilities for them to use and develop their talents and have fun.
“We need your support to get the the lease arrangements we need to apply for major funding. To apply for major funding the football club require a lease on a minimum term of 25 years.
“Please give us your support to modernise and future-proof football in our community.”
