Connah's Quay Nomads and Flint Town United have this morning announced they are looking into a ground sharing agreement at United's Cae-y-Castell ground.
In a joint statement released on the Nomads' website, the clubs announced that they are "establishing a joint management company to take responsibility for the development of the project and have jointly commissioned a feasibility study to consider the stadium upgrade requirements, together with proposals to 'join forces' to manage the facility, for subsequent consideration by the FAW."
The clubs also stated that they were aiming to enhance Cae-y-Castell to meet UEFA Category 2 ground requirements, which would make the ground eligible to host future age group and women's internationals together with UEFA qualifying round club games.
Nomads revealed in the statement that they have been investigating options for a move away from the Deeside Stadium partly due to the lack of a long-term security of tenure, and partly as recognition that efforts to create a successful match-day atmosphere and experience is hampered by their current ground. Nomads further stated that they had looked at a number of sites within north-east Wales in order to facilitate the move.
Flint have successfully secured an FAW Tier 1 licence in each of the last few seasons, meaning that Cae-y-Castell is already in place to host top flight fixtures.
