The Bryn-y-Castell Showground

The Bryn-y-Castell Showground has been home to Knighton Town Football Club for nearly 130 years and has seen many historical moments. In January 1981 a record crowd of 2,211 saw Knighton loose 4-1 to Hereford United in the Welsh Cup fourth round. In 1993 International Football came to Knighton as Wales under 16's drew 1-1 with The Republic of Ireland.



The Grand Stand

This Stand was built in the summer of 1961 and was partly funded by Knighton Town's Welsh Cup run the previous season, which ended in The fifth round against Cardiff City. The tie was Knighton's record defeat 16-0 although drawn at home the game was switched to Ninian Park for fears of crowd congestion. Cardiff at the time were playing top flight football in The English First Division(The Premier League today).

Town End Side
 
The Town End side of the Grand Stand was made hard standing in 2016 to help upgrade the stadium ready to host Cymru Alliance League football. Knighton came within a whisker of promotion losing out on the final day the 2015/16 season by a single point to Penrhyncoch.



The Town End Kop

The Town End was a small grass bank which also has be upgraded to hard standing ready for Cymru Alliance football should Knighton get promoted in the future. The standing area is raised above pitch level to improve a view from this end. There are also future plans for a 250 seat stand at this end of the stadium.
