CPD Y Rhyl 1879 are still seeking investment to secure the future of their Belle Vue ground on a permanent basis.

The recently formed club issued their original appeal in July after finally coming to an agreement on a sale price with owner David Butters, with a price of £450,000 agreed by all parties.

The club, who came together quickly after Rhyl FC’s 141-history was brought to an end due to financial issues, appointed Just Solutions Consultants to undertake a feasibility study of the historic site, with the company also drawing up the business plan for the private leisure firm that run the services for Denbighshire county council.

As part of their new lease agreement with Mr Butters, club officials have first refusal to buy the ground at the agreed price, which was based on its commercial valuation.

Should the club secure the necessary funding needed to purchase Belle Vue, they plan to “ensure it remains for the benefit of the community serving broader interests than just football”.

Tom Jamieson, chairman of CPD Y Rhyl 1879, said: “This is a unique opportunity for the football club and the town to secure the benefit of Belle Vue for the community.

“The feasibility study is an important next step to explore all potential options open to the club. But we also wish it to be known that we welcome any investor or partnership enquiries.

“The history of footballing success in Rhyl has always been significant and the potential support base is as good, if not stronger, than any club in the Welsh system.

“With the right partners, the commercial opportunities that could follow ground development and footballing success are significant and hugely exciting.

“We are determined to do all in our power to enable Belle Vue to thrive once again and CPD Y Rhyl 1879 to make its way back to Cymru Premier, the top tier of Welsh football.”

The club continues to receive support from Ann Jones AM and James Davies MP, in addition to councillors Barry Mellor and Christopher Ruane.
