The football ground is situated within the grounds of the Queensferry Learning Campus which contains the local primary school and high school, and is located opposite Deeside Leisure Centre. The entrance to the campus is on the B5129 coast road, with the ground at the end of the road leading into the campus. There is parking available all along the campus road, whilst additional parking is also available either in the car parks of the Deeside Leisure Centre, or the larger Business/Retail Park respectively.
The nearest train station for Aston Park Rangers is Shotton, which is just a 15-minute walk away from the ground if you walk along the B5129 road in the direction of the retail park/leisure centre. It is also around Shotton train station where you will find the nearest pubs, with the Wetherspoons pub The Central Hotel right next to the station, whilst the Clwyd Hotel is just a short distance away from the station also.
Alternatively, you could alight your journey at Chester and get the regular bus services from the walled city towards Shotton. If you get off at the Deeside Leisure Centre bus stop (which is just outside the entrance to the Learning Campus), you can use the 10/10A (Chester to Connah’s Quay/Flint) Arriva bus service, or the 11/11A (Chester to Rhyl via Holywell) Arriva bus service, with both services starting from Chester bus station.
Aston Park Rangers is a well-known team within Flintshire who will play their home games in the village of Higher Shotton, situated south of the town of Shotton, and part of the contiguous conurbation of Deeside. The club returns to senior football after a five-year hiatus away and will restart its history by competing in the fifth-tier North East Wales Football League Championship for the 2022-23 season.
Aston Park Rangers are known for being a successful junior team since its foundation in 1981, with the club running many junior sides from under 6s to under 16s, and many of its players coming from Aston, Shotton, and the greater eastern part of Deeside. It wouldn’t be until the early 2000s when the club dipped its toe into senior football when the club first competed in the Clwyd Football League structure, rapidly rising up the Clwyd League structure to become regular competitors in the Premier Division of the Clwydian football pyramid. When the Clwyd League was dissolved in the early 2010s, the club transferred over to the Clwyd East League / North East Wales League, where they finished as runners-up in both the 2012-13 and 2014-15 seasons but were unable to gain promotion. After a couple of difficult seasons at the lower end of the table, the club withdrew from the NEWL at the end of the 2016-17 season, only returning back to senior football for this upcoming season.
