GROUND ACCESS

The ground is situated in the southwestern edge of the village, behind the New Brighton Community Centre and next to the bowling club and green, on Moel Fammau Road. The community centre has a small car park but it can fill up quickly, so on-road parking along Moel Fammau Road may be required when visiting. Snacks and hot drinks can be bought from the snack bar at the community centre, whilst the nearest pub is the Beaufort Park Hotel that is about 10 minutes’ walk away.

New Brighton can be reached via the 4, 4S (Chester to Mold) or 5 (Ellesmere Port to Mold) bus routes, with the nearest bus stops to the ground being on Bryn Lane. The bus stop is then just a five minute walk away from the community centre and ground.

 

BRIEF HISTORY

The current club is the second version of New Brighton Villa, with the first version existing between 1987 to 1996, and competed in the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Premier Division before they folded. This current version of the club was founded in 1997 as New Brighton FC, before changing back to New Brighton Villa in 2008.

This current club has spent the whole of their history in the lower leagues of the Welsh National League, playing in Division One since the 2005-06 season after gaining promotion as Division Two champions in 2005. Villa have finished as high as fourth on four occasions during their tenure in the league, and managed to finish in fifth position in the 2019-20 season.
