The Rock, Rhosymedre, near Wrexham, Wales is the current home stadium for Welsh Premier League team Cefn Druids.

In March 2009 planning permission was granted to demolish Cefn's old stadium, Plaskynaston Lane, and replace it with a Tesco supermarket.[2] Delays to the beginning of construction put the project back by 12 months and the club moved into the new stadium in August 2010.[3]

Facilities[edit]

The new complex at Rhosymedre includes a 512 seat stand, a club house and a television gantry. As it is sited in a disused quarry, one side of the stadium features a sheer rock wall. In 2016, a 3G pitch was installed at the stadium. [4]

Attendances[edit]

The record attendance at the stadium was set in June 2017 as 1,854 attended a friendly against Wrexham.[5] The record attendance for a regular season league game at The Rock is 662 for a game against TNS. A Europa League play off game against Cardiff Met in May 2018 attracted a crowd of 779 supporters.[6]
