KNIGHTON Town manager Adam Worton has backed the club to meet stringent Huws Gray Alliance ground criteria.
The club’s Bryn-Y-Castell ground was inspected by Alliance official last week with required improvements now underway.
“It was a really positive inspection,” said Worton. “The club is happy with how it went and are confident of getting everything done before the final inspection at the end of the league season.”
Bryn-Y-Castell was an Alliance venue from 1993 to 1998 and finished their last season fourth before dropping back to recreation league football.
Since 2010 the club has been on the rise and this season have targeted the Spar Mid Wales League One title and reclaiming their lost Alliance status.
“There is a bit of work for us do, particularly installing hard standing behind one end, but the club is confident all will be completed by the end of the season.”
Meanwhile Brecon Town have had their Penlan ground inspected following an application to join Spar Mid Wales League Two next season.
The Watson Financial Mid Wales League (South) side were only formed last summer but have made no secret of their ambitions to bring Mid Wales League football to the county town for the first time since 1931.
A club spokesman said: “The pitch was inspected on Sunday afternoon by league officials.
“There are a few changes to be made but nothing too bad and we are confident of getting everything done in time for the final inspection.”
