Pen-Y-Pound Stadium

Football has been played at Pen-Y-Pound since around the 1930's. Stadium development including building a 250 seat stand and club house were to achieved by Thursday's first management committee led by local businessman Vince Sullivan.

Unfortunately the stand hasn't been used since the League of Wales days in the early 1990's but the club would love to see the stand reopened and used in the future.
