‘Bow Street FC has played at the third tier of Welsh football for 13 seasons, but from next season, there will be new structures within the game, and our aim is to advance to the ‘new’ Tier 3. The FAW has introduced strict criteria for the new Tier 3 as far as ground facilities are concerned. So, over the last couple of years, we have invested in an additional stand seating 50 people -has to be 100 in total, concrete paths surrounding three sides of the playing surface, a new drainage system and a total revamp of the changing rooms.
‘To enable us to do this we have been fortunate in receiving significant grant assistance from the FAW Trust with the rest coming from fund raising activity by the club itself.’
‘We have been extremely fortunate that Phil Evans of PA Evans has managed all the work that has gone at Cae Piod over the last couple of years. Phil, a former player and manager of Bow Street FC, and his team have provided their considerable expertise to ensure that all the criteria targets set by the FAW have been attained.’
‘Therefore, we now await confirmation from the FAW at the end of this season that we will be accepted in to the new Tier 3, which for a small village club, will be a phenomenal achievement.’
