The Bernie Williams Memorial Ground (new name) / Bagillt Road (old name)
Greenfield’s ground is easily accessible as its entrance is located on the main coast road (the A548), opposite the Glan-y-Don estate, with car parking readily available at the ground. Please note, try not to park on the main road or in the Glan-y-Don estate lay-by if you’re arriving by car.
There are regular buses from Flint train station which will stop close to the ground. Buses will stop and pick up opposite the ground at the Glan-y-Don estate bus stop via the 11F (Rhyl to Chester) Arriva bus route, the 18 (Flint to Rhyl) P&O Lloyd bus route, or the 19 (Flint to Rhyl) P&O Lloyd bus route. Drinks and snacks are available at the ground although there is only a small clubhouse. Alcoholic drinks and hot food can be bought from the nearby Ship Inn (also known as The Gletch) which is just a five-minute walk away from the ground, just past the roundabout. Another pub, the Boot & Ship, is also just a ten to fifteen-minute walk away in the Boot End of Bagillt, with a bus stop outside of the pub that is covered by the 18 and 19 bus routes.
Greenfield has a strong history in Welsh football with the original Courtaulds Greenfield factory team being one of the strongest teams in the locality. The team reached a Welsh Cup quarter-final where they played Hereford United in a losing attempt. Sadly the demise of the factory in the late 1980s to early 1990s led to the disappearance of the football team, although they left an exceptional football field. The current team was founded in 2005 as a natural outlet for the number of players being produced by the successful junior Greenfield sides.
The team started out in the Clwyd League setup and quickly rose through the leagues before joining the Welsh Alliance League Division Two in 2010. They won the Division Two title in the 2015-16 season, progressing to the third tier of Welsh football. The 2019-20 season proved to be the club’s most successful season by finishing in fourth position in the league and reaching the Second Round of the Welsh Cup. After the Welsh football reorganisation, Greenfield found itself back in the fourth tier. However, they managed to win the inaugural North East Wales Premier Division title in the 2021-22 season, although they were unable to achieve promotion due to not achieving a Tier 3 license to play in the Ardal Leagues.
