Wat’s Dyke Way
The football ground is situated on the eastern outskirts of the village, found at the end of Wat’s Dyke Way, and under the auspices of the Sychdyn Sports Association. There is some car parking available next to the changing rooms complex.
Sychdyn can be reached on public transport via the Bus Route 8 (Sealand to Mold) or Bus Route 28 (Flint to Mold), with the nearest bus stop being the one by the Memorial Hall. The ground is then about a 10 minute walk away from the bus stop. In addition, the Cross Keys are very near to the bus stop, and would be the best option to get some alcoholic drinks in the village.
Sychdyn FC began life in 1946 and was set up by a group of local lads from the village. At the time the club was known as Sychdyn Villa and proved to be a successful outfit winning numerous local trophies. During the 1960s and 70s the club was named Sychdyn United and played their home matches on Banks Park in the village, before moving to their current home on Wat’s Dyke Way, under the control of the Sychdyn Sports Association. Later the team became known as simply Sychdyn and they won the North Wales Coast Junior Cup in 1985/86.
The recent history of Sychdyn has seen them successfully compete within the Clwyd League system before transferring to the North East Wales League. They would have their best ever season in the 2016-17 season, winning both the North East Wales League and Premier Cup to achieve a double-winning campaign. Alas the club was unable to gain promotion to the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) and actually had to fold due to ground problems. Thankfully after a two year absence, they have reappeared in local football to compete in the fifth tier once again.
