On the A483, take the signs for town centre at the railway station roundabout. Right over the mini-roundabout and almost immediately left is the entrance to the ground on Howells Drive, signposted Maesydre Recreation Ground. Plenty of car parking.
Founder members of the Cymru Alliance in 1990, finishing second in 1993 and 1996.
As champions Oswestry Town were not eligible for promotion, Welshpool took their place in the LoW instead, finishing 17th.
Next season Town were relegated and stayed in the Alliance until winning the competition in 2002 to regain Welsh Premier status.
Welshpool's ground is also used for cricket, so is open on one touchline, although there is talk of a new, 3000 seat stadium in the town.
Finished next bottom in 2002/3, but appealed against relegation to the FAW, because Neath AFC were denied promotion as they failed to meet Welsh Premier ground criteria. To the surprise of many, they were reinstated in the League for 2003/4.
