Denbigh Town have begun work on the latest in a series of major improvements to their Central Park ground which has already seen the club build a 475-seat main stand and a new clubhouse and install floodlights and secure perimeter fencing.
It is part of a long-term plan to improve the facilities to enable Denbigh Town Football Club to play at the top level of Welsh football, the Cymru Premier League.
The latest step on the road is the installation of a new playing surface with a sophisticated drainage upgrade and a computerised sprinkler watering system fed by a borehole and two 25,000 litre storage tanks.
Denbigh chairman Shon Powell commented “We have always had a problem with our pitch in the winter months and this has become steadily worse in recent years.
“The pitch has a large clay content and the old clay pipe drainage system, which is over 60 years old, has deteriorated and collapsed in many places.
“Last year was particularly bad and the pitch was unplayable for long periods of time, so we had to do something about it.
