Argoed Sports and Social Club
The Argoed Sports and Social Club is located in the east of the village, near the Argoed High School, with its entrance on Snowdon Avenue. Car parking is available onsite although some on-road parking may be required if the car park fills up. The football pitch is located past the social club, at the top of the hill of the grounds. Naturally, snacks and drinks can be acquired from the social club building.
The nearest bus stops to the football ground are the Ffordd Ogwen stops located on Park Avenue, which are just a five-minute walk away (via Snowdon Avenue) from the social club. They can be reached by the 4 and 4S (Chester to Mold) Arriva bus routes that run between Mold and Chester train station, with the Chester station being the best one to use to reach Mynydd Isa using public transport. Another option would be to get to Buckley train station, walk twenty minutes into Buckley towards the Baptist Row/Lane End bus stop, and pick up a 4/4S bus from there to head to Mynydd Isa.
Mynydd Isa has a great pedigree in Welsh football as Mynydd Isa FC was a well-known name in northern Welsh football. The old club managed to get to the Cymru Alliance, and finished as high as fourth position before having to fold in 2009. The current side was originally founded as Ewloe Spartans in 2015, but a move to the Argoed Sports and Social Club at Mynydd Isa in 2016 meant the club changed to its current name of Mynydd Isa Spartans.
In their first season as Mynydd Isa, the Spartans gained promotion to the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) by finishing as runners-up in the 2016-17 North East Wales League. Since then, they have spent their time competing in the WNL Division One, finishing as high as sixth position. The club did exceptionally well in the 2019-20 Welsh Cup, reaching the first round proper by knocking out third-tier sides Llanuwchllyn and Denbigh Town, before being knocked out by Cymru North side Llanfair United by a 3-5 scoreline. Since the reorganisation of Welsh football in 2020, the Spartans have competed in the North East Wales Football League.
