Llanfair looking for extra length

Llanfair's Mount Road pitch last weekendSize is everything for Llanfair United who are looking to gain some extra length to become one of football’s big boys.
The newly promoted Spar Mid Wales Division Two club plays on one of the smallest pitches in Wales at Mount Road (right); restricting their ability to step up in standard should they ever win the league.
But the club has a plan in place to ensure that the club’s facilities keep pace with its playing ambitions, and work has already begun.
Last month the community council approved plans to rotate the pitch by allowing the club to remove the mound which currently runs along the touchline. They also gave the thumbs-up to a path being constructed around the ground.
“Things are coming together well both on and off the pitch,” said co-manager Steve Andrew. “We hope to keep building on the year so far and in two years time the committee are trying to approve plans for pitch-side changing rooms. The pitch will also be lengthened, so if we ever do get promoted we would be accepted.”
Drainage work for the proposed new lay-out started at the weekend and the club will continue to move forward pending grant applications. The current pitch is only 90m in length, but the new work will meet the required minimum of 96m.
Llanfair returned to the Mid Wales League for the first time in 25 years, but have retained a presence in the Montgomeryshire Amateur League with their Reserves playing in Division Two.
