Lily's opinion:

Plenty of reading for first time buyers in this programme, although many of the articles appear to be static throughout the season.

Nonetheless, a good editorial and feature on previous games between the two clubs and well packaged at only 50p. Far better value for money than some League of Wales club efforts!

Lily's Jottings
Rhyl and Oswestry are old rivals from years gone by, but until this year all those competitive encounters had been at the old ground in the centre of town, which is now occupied by houses. A more leafy ground you would struggle to find, but the club are faced with a lot of work on such a large venue to keep it up to date.

Concrete terracing is in short supply with many having to rely on the grass banking for their view of the match - fine in the summer but somewhat precarious in the winter. The stand is separated from the pitch by an old running track which sometimes makes the game seem all to distant. The club are friendly and welcoming though, and there is a well stocked club shop for the programme buff to browse through.

The club's 'social club' is a fair walk from the ground but worth it to catch up on the post-match banter. On the whole not a bad visit, just take some ear muffs if the sound of gun shooting from the nearby woods gets on your nerves!


Lily's 'Match Experience' Rating = 6/10
