Corwen forced to move Maes Tegid as Harry Wilson expresses sadness
Corwen FC were traded after they were forced to leave their War Memorial Park is home to the shared pitch at Maes Tegid Stadium in Bala Town FC
Corwen announced on her website this week that after 40 years they were told they couldn’t continue playing at War Memorial Park and would play all seven of their home games at Maes Tegid.
The statement said “It is with great regret that after more than 40 years that the Corwen Football Club has recognized War Memorial Park as its home ground, we can no longer host games in the park. Despite our best efforts to find accommodation with Memorial Park / Town Council, the limited new facilities now offered at the club do not meet FAW standards.
“As such, the team will play their next seven home games at Maes Tegid, home of Bala Town FC, to give the club time to reflect on its future. We deeply regret this decision and the loss of an accreditation for the city.
Corwen City Council owns the pavilion building and changing rooms which currently do not meet current FAW level three standards for football stadium facilities.
A petition has been launched on social media to support the Club to continue playing at War Memorial Park with over 500 signatures already showing their support.
After the news, Harry Wilson of Wales, originally from Corwen, expressed his sadness over the decision on social media.
“It’s sad to hear that my hometown club Corwen have been forced to withdraw their games from ‘The Rec’ due to issues beyond their control,” said the 24-year-old.
“I have enjoyed going to see the team play there all my life and I hope it won’t be too long before I can do it again.”
