Facilities not fantasy for Monty

Montgomery Town have opted for long-term sustainability over short-term gain as they bid to live up to their reputation as one of Mid Wales football’s sleeping giants.Montgomery Town FC
Monty and fellow ‘big’ club Llanidloes Town have re-emerged from the depths of amateur football this summer to join the Spar Mid Wales set-up, but manager Clive McNamee says the club has wisely resisted the temptation to spend big on players.
I have not heard of ‘crazy money’ being paid in the lower leagues but my view is each to their own,” said McNamee. “If a club earns their money then surely it is up to them how they spend it? But, contrary to some people’s beliefs, this is not a road that we as a club intend to go down. We would rather spend our money on our facilities at the moment.
“The installation of floodlights is our next major target and will probably decide how far up the pyramid we can go. We have a very hard working committee, all pulling in the same direction so the club is on a very firm footing.

“In three seasons we have fenced the ground off, put fold up seats in the stand and purchased machinery for the up keep of the playing surface. The new extension on the changing rooms has now been completed and we can now boast male and female officials’ dressing rooms along with a new home changing room with a larger changing area for the away team. New public toilets have also been built which cater for disabled spectators.”

McNamee's side are in Welsh Trophy action this weekend at Llanystumdwy after winning their opening day Welsh Cup match 3-2 last week.
