Ground seen on Gareth Bale programme Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just watched this Gareth Bale: Euro Star on BBC1 Wales, it's being shown on all the other BBC1 regions at 11:25pm tonight. 20 minutes in the programme shows Gareth returning to Wales surprising a group of kids by taking part in their training session and wondered if anyone recognised the ground? It's a railed off pitch next to the sea, assuming it was filmed early evening it must be a west facing coast given the shadows with land jutting out to the south. There is a small covered terrace with green exterior behind the dugouts on the inland side, main pitch enclosed by a mesh fence with more pitches outside. Probably find out it's a ground I visited it on a hop but can't immediately picture it. Answers on a postcardWink.

Thanks for that. Not visited it myself but looking at Google Maps you're probably right. It must have been filmed around midday given the position of the shadows making it south facing with the land to the left being Sully Island. For anyone who missed the programme it's on the BBCi player until 3rd July, the ground featured 19 minutes in.
