When Coedpoeth United had to stop organised football in early 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic their junior committee, led by Jessica Wright, decided to turn their efforts to bringing the Minera football field to a usable condition. As competitive football returns and the new season approaches, their hard work has paid off handsomely. Minera Community Council was delighted to help the project along with a donation of £1,000. Together with a donation of £2,000 from North Wales Police and Community Trust (PACT), donations of time and materials, and most of all a refusal by the club’s own volunteers to let the size of the job defeat them, this has produced an excellent new pitch for the junior team – the Falcons – to train on and to play their league fixtures. Trustees from PACT and Councillors from Minera joined the Falcons at their latest training session to congratulate the club on its achievement, and wish them every success for the coming season and beyond.
Pictured on the field are PACT Chair Ashley Rogers with PCSO Kelvin Evans, PACT Trustee Lloyd FitzHugh, Council Chair John Edwards and Councillor Tom Grundy, Council Clerk David Hinchliffe, CUFC Coaches Jamie Prydden and Guy Wright, and CUFC Junior Secretary Jessica Wright.
Coedpoeth United has a thriving junior section, providing training and games for boys and girls in Coedpoeth, Minera and the surrounding area, and would be delighted to meet any youngsters and their parents interested in playing or supporting the club’s activities in any way.
