CARDIGAN FC wish to expand their facilities at the town’s King George V playing fields – but are hampered by space restrictions, town councillors have learnt.

The club co-exist alongside Cardigan RFC, but wish to bring their own facilities up to scratch – including new changing rooms.

However, Cllr Catrin Miles told colleagues there was a limit to what the footballers could actually do.

Cllr Nick Bolton described the parking situation as ‘horrendous’ on match days and warned the situation would only worsen if a section of the existing parking area was lost.

However, Cllr John Adams-Lewis said the green area could not be built upon. “The only way to go for them is to build up,” he told Cllr Bolton.

Cllr Richard Jones said the idea of the football and rugby clubs sharing facilities had been floated for several years.

Council clerk Eleri Maskell warned that any attempt to build on the nearby tennis courts would inevitably encounter strong opposition.

The council agreed to discuss the matter with all interested parties.
