Alyn Park is situated on the northern outskirts of Mold, with the entrance road leading down to the ground from the A541 (Mold-Denbigh Road). The entrance will be identifiable by the Mold Alex logo sign hanging above the entrance on the main road. If you are arriving by public transport, it is roughly a 10-15 minute walk from the Bus Station or the High Street. Please note that it can be a bit awkward to reach Mold via public transport, especially from Flint station, although there is the 28 (Flint to Mold) Townlynx bus route that connects the two towns on an hourly basis. There are also the 4/4S (Chester to Mold) Arriva bus routes to Mold Bus Station which pick up directly from Chester train station.
Car parking is available at the ground, although paid car parking is plentiful in Mold also. Hot food and drinks are served via the snatch hatch near the ground’s entrance, whilst alcoholic drinks can be bought from Mold Alex’s superb clubhouse. In addition, Mold has many excellent and various pubs within the town, should you wish to explore them before/after the game.
Football has been played in Mold since it was first established in Wales, with a Mold-based team competing in the second edition of the Welsh Cup competition way back in 1878-79, and also reaching the semi-finals on two occasions. However, Mold Alexandra was created in 1929 replacing numerous teams that had folded prior to its founding. The majority of the club’s history has been spent in the Welsh National League system, with the 1980s being a particularly successful time for the Alex, winning multiple leagues and cups.
As a result, they were invited to become founding members of the Cymru Alliance, and subsequently the League of Wales, although were relegated from the top flight in 1995. Since then, they have fluctuated between the second and third tiers respectively, winning the WNL Premier Division twice during that time. The 2021-22 season was one of the most successful in the club’s history as Mold Alexandra won the first-ever Ardal North West league title to gain promotion back to the second tier, and clinched the FAW Trophy for the first time when they beat Baglan Dragons 1-0 at the neutral venue of Caersws.
