CPD Y Rhyl 1879 have received a significant boost after securing the services of Belle Vue as their base.

The phoenix club confirmed the bombshell on Monday evening after finally reaching an agreement with ground owner David Butters, who was reportedly unreceptive to any negotiations regarding the plight of Rhyl FC before the Lilywhites formally began winding up proceedings.

In a complete U-turn from the owner, the new club will also be given exclusive rights to possibly purchase the ground in the future.

New 1879 chairman Tom Jamieson, former Lilies’ chairman Paul Higginson and managing director Adam Roche have “worked tirelessly” behind the scenes to “protect the commercial sensitivity required” to ensure the new football club remains at Belle Vue.

This shocking development have only generated momentum in the past few days and the new leadership team have already set their sights on “guaranteeing” the club never faces the prospect of losing the ground again.

Mr Higginson, said: “Personally I have been involved in trying to secure Belle Vue for nearly 15 years.

“This is a remarkable and momentous opportunity to secure an iconic ground and to secure the history of football in Rhyl, ensuring that the Club plays an important role in the regeneration of Rhyl.”

The old Rhyl FC were forced into liquidation after failing to find the £175,000 needed to stay in business until May 2021. This also included a £26,000 lease on Belle Vue for the 2020/21 campaign in JD Cymru North.

Mr Butters originally purchased the ground for £40,000 in the early 1990s and harboured plans to build on the iconic site, but he eventually resisted after fierce protests from the Rhyl FC supporters.

“We now want to call on everyone who showed their support across all the media for the old club, following the difficult announcement a month ago, to come forward to help bring back success to Rhyl and its community,” added Mr Jamieson.

“Now we have the ground I’d welcome all conversations from any serious credible investors to help us secure our famous ground and show your community support for the future of football in the town of Rhyl. We have the football support to rival any Welsh team and now we have the ground to match too.”

“Whilst an historic moment for the new club and our town, the hard work at the ground will start on the June 1 when we get the keys as we have to call on all volunteers, existing and new to get the ground ready post coronavirus to kick that first ball in anger.”

A new volunteer committee has been formed, and the club also expect to confirm the appointment of a first team manager in the coming weeks.
