WELSH Cup winners Prestatyn Town could quit their ground for a new home.
The Seasiders, who lifted the trophy for the first time after a 3-1 win over Bangor City in May, are looking at a site near Ysgol Clawdd Offa which could allow them to stage European and international matches.
As well as leaving Bastion Gardens, redeveloping the ground is also under consideration.
Chairman Phil Merrick said: “The reality is, going forward, we’re looking to make the club as big as we can make it, so that we can play our own European matches at home.
“We’re thinking more broadly about it now, but no decisions have been made yet. We’ve been thinking about developing the ground to get more seating there, but before we start developing Bastion Gardens, it’s worth looking at other options.
“It’s just very early days.”
A site near Ysgol Clawdd Offa has been proposed as a possible location for a new stadium.
Mr Merrick said: “It’s a site we’ve looked at, but I don’t know whether it’s too far out of town. It’s a site that might be available.”
Prestatyn’s Welsh Cup win saw them qualify for the Europa League and the club played two home fixtures at Rhyl’s Corbett Sports Stadium before being knocked out in the Second Qualifying Round by Croatian side HNK Rijeka.
The club earnt more than €200,000 in prize money during the run in the competition.
Mr Merrick added: “We need to be very careful if we are moving. I can’t speak for the board, but personally, I would like to develop Bastion Gardens more. It also would open up the possibility of staging more prestige matches, like Wales under 17s or Wales under 21s.
“It is worth investigating further, or do we stay where were we are and expand there? One or two people have talked about it, and we’ve talked about it as a board.”
A members’ meeting is being held on Wednesday, October 30, where any potential developments will be discussed.
