TMC Hallcrest Ground (sponsored name) or Dock Road (traditional name)
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. There are plans in place for snacks and hot drinks to be sold at the ground in the near future.
The nearest train station to the ground is the one located in Shotton, which is about 1,5 miles / 25 to 30-minute walk away. Likewise, it is possible to get a 10A (Chester to Connah’s Quay/Flint) or 11/11A (Rhyl to Chester) Arriva bus to the Golftyn Garthorpe Avenue bus stop on the B5129, and then walk about ten minutes to the ground along Dock Road (via Quay Lane) and through the industrial estate to the ground. Likewise walking along the Welsh Coastal Path or getting a taxi from the train station may be alternative options to reach the football ground.
Naturally, as the ground is within the industrial estate, there are no pubs or food outlets nearby. However, there are a number of pubs back at Shotton train station, such as the Wetherspoons pub The Central Hotel next to the station, and the Clwyd Hotel which is just a short distance further up the main B5129 road, as well as a number of fast food outlets along the main street there.
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.
