WORK to get Colwyn Bay FC’s stadium ready for next season will commence during the coming weeks.

The Aberconwy and Colwyn Junior Leagues’ cup finals last Sunday (May 7) brought the curtain down on the 2022-23 season at the club’s 4 Crosses Construction Arena (Llanelian Road) home.

The final phase of building its new 1,000-capacity stand will now be completed, with the installation of seats.

Construction work began at the ground in early December.

A new perimeter fence will also be installed, which will allow an extension to the playing surface’s run-off area to comply with UEFA regulations.

Pitch maintenance will continue in the coming weeks, under the supervision of groundsman Arthur Bryn Jones.

Planning permission for the new stand was granted by Conwy County Borough Council in October.

Previously, club chairman Neil Coverley said: “This development will help promote and progress not only the local football club but the local area, nationally and internationally, helping boost the economy and employment.

“It encourages growth and progression and would be a significant addition to the community and one of which we would all benefit from.”

The stadium was built in 1984 and currently can hold up to 3,000 people, with covered seating for 500 supporters - the new stand will take the stadium's seating capacity to 1,850.

Colwyn Bay FC secured the JD Cymru North title in April, sealed promotion to the Cymru Premier for the first time in the club's history.

Bay lost only once during the season and won 25 games in a row, scoring 101 goals as they secured the club’s first league title since 1992.
