LLANDUDNO FC will play their first home game in more than a year later this week, after the pitch was finally re-laid.

The Cymru North side have been unable to play at their OPS Wind Arena home since September last year, after the pitch was deemed a health and safety hazard by UEFA and FAW.

This affected the club and its resources, with the team having to play at other grounds (chiefly Y Morfa in Conwy) as they worked to resolve the issue.

The club organised several fundraising events in that time, and even set up a pitch bond system to pay for the new pitch, which saw donations from fans.

The new 5g pitch has finally been reinstalled, and the club have received the go-ahead to host games back at their home ground.

Their first game on new turf will be against Chirk AAA this Friday (November 10), with kick-off at 8pm.

A Llandudno FC spokesperson said: "The OPS Wind Arena awaits.

"We. Are. Back.

"This Friday night the dream of returning becomes reality."
