ST ASAPH City manager Daniel Brewerton has thanked the football and local community for their support in the wake of serious flood damage.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side’s ground was underwater when the River Elwy burst its banks on Sunday, February 9, leaving the pitch area, changing rooms, kitchen and storeroom decimated as a result.

Expensive equipment such as the club’s mower were also impacted considerably, leaving the Saints’ ability to meet the new Tier 3 requirements issued by the Football Association of Wales in doubt.

Brewerton told The Journal that there has been additional flood damage today from Storm Dennis, although it is not known whether or not it got as far as the clubhouse.

A series of wonderful gestures from groups and individuals has aided the set-up considerably during the initial stages of the aftermath, and Denbighshire county council also granted them use of the Leisure Centre’s 3G facility until their plying surface is up to standard.

Brewerton, said: “Apparently it flooded again today (Sunday) but I’m not sure of it got into the building or not.

“We can’t start the clean up until the loss adjuster has been to the ground, but we’ve had so much support from people it’s been incredible.

“In less than a week we’ve so many donations to the club from new kits, spare equipment, offers to repair the mowers and donations on the just giving page.

“The council have given us the use of the 3G at the leisure centre for our home games too.”
