From North and South follow A470 into Rhayader Town centre. Take the Elan Valley road for 400 yards and turn left downhill into Water Lane. Follow the road past the rugby pitches and find football club along this lane.
Ample car parking with social club inside ground.
Football in Rhayader dates back to 1884 and a fixture with local rivals Newtown, most probably a friendly match.
In 1891 Rhayader competed in the Welsh Cup but lost 4-3 to Oswestry. The club continued to compete in the Welsh Cup and in 1925 joined the Welsh League (Mid Wales Section) in the earliest recorded participation in league football.
After the war a "Turfs Rhayader FC" side competed in the Mid Wales League (South). The Championship was won at the end of the 1959 season and in 1965 the club progressed to the Mid Wales League.
Membership of the Cymru Alliance followed and, after only one league defeat, Town won the Championship and promotion to the League of Wales in 1997.
Rhayader found membership of the LoW a difficult proposition and finished at the foot of the table in 2002.
