If you're at a loose end on a Saturday afternoon (or occasionally a Monday or Tuesday night) then a trip to Llanelian Road may be on the cards. The mighty Seagulls hadn't had the best of times of late but following two successive promotions will play in the Conference North in 2011/12.
Admission prices are reasonable, it's £7 for an adult (at the time of writing) but there are concessions for kids and OAP's, and you get much closer to the action than in the Premier League. Under of stewardship of player/manager Dave Challinor a decent team has been assembled and things are certainly on the up.
Facilities have improved lately too with a decent clubhouse where you can get a half time pint and a takeaway food counter for pies and cups of tea. The ground is also scenically located high up in Old Colwyn so if the game is a bit dull then you can always take in the surrounding views!
if you need to sing songs about seaguls while screaming youths intimidate you in a freezing old shelter that looks like it was made from wwII waste metal, then go to a colwyn bay football match. i used to go there when they were in the uni bond league, and it was a good laugh, shouting insults at the visitors, it could get really roudy. you can get a pie at half time from the pie shop and you can also get a cup of steaming bovrill. yemm. yeah, if you like football, and you are in the bay, go and watch the bay play football, its a lot of fun.
