Enjoyed a warm and friendly welcome to Merthyr Town last weekend. Proper non-league ground and fans. Would avoid parking at the ground as this is limited. Parked in town for £1 all day. The Merthyr cob is a must!

Went to watch them play on Saturday and the atmosphere there is great for a non league team, it’s a old cliche but you can definitely see a connection between the players and the fans, will definitely be attending more games this season

Great welcome. Friendly fans. Great game including a goal for the opposition in the first 10 seconds. Equaliser was a great solo effort. Only down sides were the ball being in the air so much that it was head tennis at times and the snack bar not being open. Missed my match cup of tea. The flag is brilliant.

History (from Wikipedia)

A housing estate next to it also carries the name of the stadium. It was also the home of the town's former club, Merthyr Tydfil F.C. There are plans for Merthyr to move to a new stadium on the edge of the town. The stadium would be part of the new 'Merthyr Village' development and have a capacity of around 12,000. These plans were thrown into doubt by the Welsh Government's rejection of the project in 2007.[3]

In July 2011, the newly promoted Merthyr Town FC hosted Welsh Premier League side Llanelli in a pre-season friendly at Penydarren Park, and thereafter took up full-time residency.
