Second Pitch Opens At Llanrumney Sports Complex
In May this year, CMB Engineering commenced works on the new Llanrumney Sports Complex. Following the completion of pitch one just a couple of weeks ago, the site team have since completed works on the second full size dual marked pitch.
The second pitch was handed over to Cardiff University last week with the first club to test out the surface being Llanrumney Juniors FC whilst a good-sized crowd looked on. Cardiff Universities Philip Rees-Jones and Cardiff City House of Sport Director Steve Borley were joined by Llanrumney Councillor Keith Jones as well as Hannah Daley, Zoe Atkins, Owen Prichard, and Jake Dennis of CCFC Women’s and CCFC Academy football teams respectively who greeted the youngsters and took photos with them during their training sessions.
The occasion was made up of various boys’ and girls’ junior teams having training sessions on the brand new facility, followed by the U15’s and U16’s playing a friendly on the pitch. The feedback from attendees was brilliant and we were glad to see everyone had such a good time.
Thank you to everyone who came down and made the evening one to remember. Also, a big congratulations to the CMB team including South Wales Sports Grounds who delivered this project and have kept ahead of their deadlines. We’re looking forward to seeing the complex develop further and having more teams/sports on the pitches.
Once complete, the Llanrumney Sports Complex will hold a variety of facilities including 4 x 3G pitches, a hockey pitch and the repurposed former Dr.Who building which will become the official home to Cardiff City Football Academy along with 5 grass pitches. The project also includes the provision of a new changing and community pavilion and associated parking on the adjacent former school site as part of the community provision.
We will provide more updates as this site develops.
