Waterloo Rovers (Maes y Dre Recreation Ground)

Don’t worry, you’re quite right – we’ve been here before. Although it wasn’t until I’d pulled out of the home of Welshpool and was driving past it on the nearby dual carriageway that I noticed there was a second stadium on site.

And I’ll be honest with you, whether it was the surprise element might have helped, but this is a little beauty. Both in size and how fun it is.

If you’re visiting Welshpool, you can hop behind the cricket club, onto a playing field then over a little concrete bridge that crosses a stream and you’re there. In terms of weird entries to grounds it’s right up there!

If you really want to get your stadia fix then there’s also an adjoining rugby ground, but that’s not what we’re here for. This place might only have one stand but of life gives you lemons, we’ll still give you a (relatively) cohesive blog.

There’s bonus points on offer for the stand being named, of course. But as well as this tribute to Bob Mann, there are park benches dotted around the pitch as well, winning bonus points galore. It’s really quite a pretty little thing.

And so we salute this ridiculously named ground, complete with two football grounds, as well as a rugby one and also the cricket. A thumbs up from the world famous Andy Fury Football Ground Blog – a crowning moment in Waterloo FC’s history. Probably.
