PRESTATYN Sports have condemned vandals who caused damage to parts of their new base at the Meadows playing fields.

The NWCFA Tier 4 (East) Premier Division side worked exceptionally hard throughout the summer to secure a 25-year lease on the site, giving them a permanent home in the town after playing their games in Gronant since their inception.

A group of youths caused some significant damage to the dugout areas of their ground recently, breaking all the coping stones from their foundations that will need repairing before Sion Williams and John Hargreaves’ men start their season.

Although no date has yet been confirmed regarding a start date for anything below Tier 2 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the club stated they “will not accept” this sort of behaviour from anyone using their facilities going forward.

A post on Prestatyn Sports’ Facebook page, read: “The club’s disappointed to see vandalism on the new dugouts at the ground.

“Kids have kicked and broken all the coping stones from there place. We don't want to stop any kids using the pitch to play football but won't accept this behaviour or damage to our property.

“If your kids play down the Meadows have a word with them.”

Sports’ move to the Meadows comes after seven-year discussions with the council and Prestatyn High School, which is the latest in a series of exciting developments at the club in recent weeks.

They are looking to make a significant impression in what looks to be a highly competitive Tier 4 next season. The management team has got the majority of last season’s squad back on board for their upcoming challenge, and they have also signed some prominent players who will also aid their cause significantly including former Prestatyn Town striker Lee Beattie.
