No European football at Latham Park

Created on 07/06/2021 @ 08:24

There’s disappointment today for Newtown supporters with news that Latham Park has failed the test to stage European Conference League football.

The Robins qualified with a stunning 5-3 play-off victory at Caernarfon and were looking forward to welcoming European football back to Latham Park.

Chris Hughes’ side however will not be able to play at home ground and will instead play over 30 miles away at Park Hall, the home of The New Saints.

The pitch at Latham Park, which was laid at 2014, does not meet the required standards, despite hosting qualifiers against Copenhagen and Valletta in 2015.

The news is a real blow to The Robins and means the club must look at a potential big expenditure to get the playing surface up to standard if they wish to host future European and International games at Latham Park.
