ST ASAPH City FC have begun the clean-up process after floods devastated their ground.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side saw their changing rooms, equipment and playing surface decimated by Storm Ciara that has put their ambitions to meet the Football Association of Wales’ new Tier 3 criteria into doubt.

A series of wonderful gestures from groups and individuals has aided the set-up considerably during the initial stages of the aftermath, and Denbighshire county council also granted them use of the Leisure Centre’s 3G facility until their plying surface is up to standard.

Volunteers gathered at their base on Saturday, February 22 to begin the first stages of repairing the damage, which is going to take a significant period of time and use up a lot of the club’s financial resources.

A crowdfunding page set-up in for the Saints’ has raised £920 so far, with the first team squad donating their fine kitty of £550 to the cause.

St Asaph FC tweeted: “Massive amount of work to be done but lots of people on hand to help!”

Miles Todd, owner of 360 Ground Care, had offered his services free of charge to try and get the playing surface back to its normal standard.

Another display of generosity came from Ian Senior, owner of SKkits, who managed to produce brand new first team shirts for the club after their previous attire was damaged beyond repair.
