GROUND ACCESS

The football ground is situated along the Dock Road of Connah’s Quay, a road which runs alongside the River Dee and is just off the main coast road B5129. The football ground is found along Dock Road, next to the small industrial estate there, nearby the Wales Coastal Path and Wepre Brook.

The nearest train station to the ground is the one in Shotton, which is about 1,5 miles / 25-minute walk away. There are a number of pubs nearby the train station, as well as along the high street, as well as shops. There are no bus stops nearby the ground, so walking along the Coastal Path or a taxi is your best option from the train station to the football ground.

BRIEF HISTORY

Connah’s Quay has had a number of clubs alongside CQ Nomads throughout the years, although since FC Nomads of Connah’s Quay resigned from the Welsh National League prior to the 2019-20 season, Connah’s Quay has been without a second team. However, in 2020, it was announced that Connah’s Quay Town, in collaboration with the successful Connah’s Quay Tigers junior club, would be competing in the subsequent cancelled 2020-21 season and provide a senior outlet for the Tigers’ junior sides. This will be the second time a Connah’s Quay Town team will appear, with the first (and unrelated) edition of the club last appearing in the 2012-13 Welsh Alliance Division Two season.

The Town had a near-perfect debut season in the fifth-tier North East Wales League Championship for the 2021-22 season when they won the league on their first attempt and earned a promotion to the North East Wales League Premier Division. Connah’s Quay Town also managed to win both the NEWFL Two Counties Cup (defeating Ruabon Rovers 4-3 on penalties after a wild 4-4 draw) and North East Wales FA-ran Mike Beech Memorial Trophy (beating FC Queens Park 1-0) to create a treble-winning debut season.
