To reach The Wern Sports Park turn left by the side of the clubhouse and left again. Follow the road round to the left and the ground is approx. ½ mile on the right hand side.

A small bar stocking a range of beers and soft drinks together with a food outlet is located next to the main stand. The bar will be open one hour prior to kick off. Post-match food for players and presentations will take place at the Clubhouse and supporters are encouraged to join us there for a drink.

Additional works have begun at the Wern which will see the construction of a new stand, changing rooms and parking. Please take extra care whilst these works are being carried out.

Currently there is covered accommodation on three sides of the ground with work to construct a new stand due to begin shortly. There is no segregation within the ground.

Provision for disabled supporters can be found in the stand behind the goal adjacent to the main gate. Any disabled supporters requiring parking should contact neil.williams@ironmenrl.wales.


Transport

Both the ground and clubhouse are easily accessible off the A470 and within walking distance of both the train and bus stations.

There is no on-site parking available at present. However, works have started on a new car and we will update as soon as this is available. In the meantime, we would ask our visitors to park considerately as the ground is situated within a housing estate. Parking is available at the clubhouse.
