CPD Y Rhyl 1879 have condemned vandals who have broken into their Belle Vue stadium and caused damage.

The newly formed club, which has come together quickly after Rhyl FC’s illustrious history ended with winding up proceedings, announced on their social media sites that a series of separate break-ins have transpired over recent weeks.

This has caused an unknown amount of damage to various areas of the ground, which has hampered their recent efforts to improve the facility in time for their inaugural season.

Volunteers and officials are currently putting extra hours in to get the club up to the necessary Tier 4 requirements, where they are hooping to start their journey next season.

The club have passed CCTV of the individuals involved to North Wales Police and called on the community to “have some respect” for those working hard to get the new initiative off the ground.

A post of CPD Y Rhyl 1879’s Twitter page, read: “Disappointed to report that Belle Vue has had a series of incidents taken place causing damage to various areas of the ground, when volunteers are working hard to improve facilities etc this is just not on.

“Police have evidence of individuals, it’s simple please have respect!”

The use of Belle Vue was plunged into doubt after owner David Butters and former Rhyl FC chairman Paul Higginson could not come to an agreement regarding the lease, which played a role in their decision to disband the Lilywhites’ 141-year history.

The site was secured by the new club following an astonishing turnaround from Mr Butters, who also gave them first refusal to purchase the ground in the future.
