LLANDUDNO FC have secured a venue to play their home games at next season, as a supporter-backed ‘pitch bond’ scheme raises money for a new pitch.

The Cymru North club have been unable to play at their OPS Wind Arena ground since September last year, due to health and safety concerns about the pitch.

Having failed to lay a new pitch for the ground due to insufficient funds, the club were also denied a Welsh Government grant that would have allowed for the instalment of a 4g pitch.

They have now announced they will play their home games at Y Morfa Stadium, the home of Conwy Borough FC.

A Llandudno FC statement said: “We can tonight confirm our venue for our 'home' games for the upcoming season.

“We will be playing our home fixtures at Conwy Borough's ground, Y Morfa until our 3G pitch is relayed.

“We'd like to say a massive thank you to Conwy Borough for their support and co-operation in organising this venue.”

Aside from this, a pitch bond scheme was launched for the club, which is inviting members of the public, businesses and supporters to purchase a bond.

The money raised will allow the club to raise the final total that is needed to place the order for a 4G pitch, and once the first game on the new pitch has been paid, a monthly draw will then allow those that purchased a bond to get their money back.

The draws will continue until everyone has had their money repaid.

To date, more than £9,250 has been raised via the pitch bonds, and different price points have been launched, for those who wish to help with donations lower than £250.
