Prestatyn Town under new ownership after being taken over by consortium
Recently relegated Prestatyn Town have been taken over by a three-person consortium.
Dave Farrell, Neal Colakoglu and cousin Salih took control of the club on Monday.
Rhyl Journal report that the club are aiming to implement a 3G pitch, as well as a two-storey clubhouse, as they aim to become a community hub once again.
Dave Farrell who is in charge of the commercial aspect said the 3G pitch will bring many benefits to the club.
“We want to get a 3G pitch here to sustain revenue and have events such as walking football, community use and other things throughout the year.”
The Seasiders are currently bottom of the Huws Gray Alliance, after losing the majority of their playing squad, following their relegation from the top tier.
Their promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League was one of the stories of the season in 2016/17, but after losing manager Neil Gibson to Connah’s Quay Nomads as Assistant Manager early on, the Seasiders struggled in the topflight.
During their short stay in the league, the club secured just four wins and seven draws and finished bottom of the league with a mere 19 points.
Prestatyn didn’t apply for the FAW Domestic Licence at the end of last term but did obtain the Tier Two Licence, but this summer continued to be a summer of upheaval.
Manager Gareth Wilson left for Denbighshire rivals Rhyl and was later replaced by the management team of Leon Field and Ryan Turner.
Neal Colakoglu will meet with the current management team this week, about plans moving forward.
“We want to build morale back up and get more people through the gates to enjoy watching Prestatyn Town again,”
“Football is my life and whatever it takes financially back to where it belongs then we will do it.
We want to stay in the league at the very least this season and then make sure that next summer is a big one and add to the club.”
