Pontypool RFC statement on Pontypool Park future

Thursday 06th February 2014
 

Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that the club has entered into formal discussions with Torfaen County Borough Council with regards to ensuring a viable future for the relationship between Pontypool Park and Pontypool RFC.

Officials from both Pontypool RFC and Torfaen County Borough Council initially met two weeks ago, with the primary objectives being to safeguard the rugby venue of Pontypool Park from persistent vandalism occurrences and to investigate the feasibility of developing the venue to ensure Pontypool RFC meets its objective of obtaining promotion to the WRU Principality Premiership by acquiring a WRU A Licence.

Both parties unanimously agreed that the most effective solution to these objectives would be to fully enclose the entire rugby facility of Pontypool Park. This would enable necessary improvements to be introduced and would subsequently safeguard the facility from further defacement.

Both Pontypool RFC and Torfaen County Borough Council are presently working together to formulate an action plan that would see this solution implemented in the quickest possible timeframe. Both parties are fully committed to ensuring that Pontypool RFC continues to operate from Pontypool Park and the club is not seeking additional premises at this time.

Pontypool RFC extends its thanks to both Torfaen County Borough Council and Lynne Neagle AM for their continued efforts.

Pontypool RFC also extends its thanks to supporters of the club. There has been much interest in this topic and the management of Pontypool RFC will continue to communicate via further releases as this situation progresses further.
