WESTON Football Club will not be leaving its current Woodspring Stadium home.

Oli Bliss, managing director, says the club will concentrate on improving its existing facilities and hopes to install an artificial pitch, if league officials consent.

The club hopes making changes to its current ground will help the club in the long-term and allow it to integrate more easily with the community, as new homes are planned on land surrounding its Winterstoke Road home.

The club had previously expressed interest in joining forces with Weston College to build a larger sports complex out-of-town at Locking Parklands, although that now looks unlikely.

Mr Bliss, speaking at a fans’ forum on January 18, said: “We probably aren’t moving but we are looking to develop the site.

“We aren’t looking to sell anything off but put in 3G facilities and maybe some training facilities, classrooms and a gym.”

Redecoration of the bar area, the introduction of wedding packages and allowing community groups to use the 3G facilities once built are also planned to help boost club finances.

Darlington's new ground will be pretty full you'd imagine. With only 1200 places in the seats and terrace plus probably another 400 spaces? in hard standing it will be rocking. Their average attendance this season is just over 1000 with 1600 being the biggest and you'd think moving back to Darlo and a possible promotion will bring that attendance up next season. Any Idea what the official capacity will be of the ground?

Planning document states a minimum capacity of 2,500 to start with, but can be easily increased to 3,000.

Truro City reveal plans for new stadium at Threemilestone

Truro City could move to a new ground on the outskirts of the city.

Helical Retail, who want to redevelop Treyew Road, have bought a site known as Silver Bow at Threemilestone.

A planning application will be submitted for the new ground, which is four-and-a-half miles away from Treyew Road, in the coming months.

"The acquisition and development of the Silver Bow site will create long term certainty for the club to implement its plans," chairman Peter Masters said.

Truro agreed to sell Treyew Road to Helical last July and the firm plans to build a retail park on the site.

Gloucester City

Quote:
Gloucester City FC’s ground committee met yesterday to review progress on the new stadium project, as a result the club wishes to update on the progress so far.

A lot of work has been completed to cost and assess the 45 conditions placed on the outline planning permission, and we now have a clear feel for the best way to fulfill these.

“The scale of this work should not be underestimated, it is going to cost a further significant six figure sum to complete all of that work, and negotiations are going on with various third parties where we are able to receive funding against specific terms on that list,” explained chairman Mike Dunstan.

“It is however the expectation of all around the table that we will be able to move to full planning and initial ground preparations within the next few months.”

“That stage would see the demolition of the old stadium and building up of the ground levels for the new one – it is something we are desperate to see, but it is essential that this stage is completed correctly to ensure there are no unnecessary delays or additional costs.”

Swindon town

TRUST STFC have committed to building a roof on the Stratton Bank at the County Ground, with an expressed intention of getting the structure in place by the start of the 2016/17 season.

Acting on the authority of Swindon Town, representatives of the Trust have engaged Beard Construction and Reid Steel to undertake surveys of the existing stand and its foundations, with a view to submitting blueprints to the council for planning permission this summer.

Plans have been drawn up for a £500,000 propped cantilever stand, which the Trust intend to be funded partly by corporate finance and partly with contributions from benefactors and fans, and constructors have been on site this week assessing the work which would need to be done.

Trust board member Mike Welsh, who has been overseeing the project, told Link Sport: “We’re very keen to improve the matchday experience of fans and we think one of the key items is that the Stratton Bank should have a roof. It was first mooted in 1958 but the Trust has now committed itself to working with the club to create a roof over the Stratton Bank.

“The club were approached by the Trust and they agreed that we would undertake a feasibility survey. This has involved talking to a number of very experienced builders and constructors, including Reid Steel of Christchurch in Dorset, who constructed the stand at the Ealing Road end at Brentford.

“Also, on the groundwork side, we are working with a local, very well respected team at Beards. Very shortly we are going to be proceeding with an invasive site survey to see what is actually under the terracing because that will be very important in how the stand is constructed.

“We’re looking at a propped cantilever roof which means there will be a stanchion due to costings. The stand at Brentford cost £850,000 and we are looking at something around £500,000 for 2,250 seats, which will only have one central stanchion.”

Planning permission has previously been granted for a Stratton Bank roof taller than the option currently being discussed by the Trust, the club and its contractors, and Welsh hopes that any regeneration – which would also include the creation of a community garden behind the stand – would benefit residents on Shrivenham Road as well as supporters.

“We’ve had a lot of intense discussions with the constructors, there have been site surveys and we’ve had some fairly detailed stuff to date. We’re approaching the outcome of that site survey and then we’ll be in a position to go back to the club and talk about timescales, getting planning permission, talking to the council as freeholders and, very importantly, talking to local residents,” he said.

“We think this will enhance the experience of living there. It will tidy up a very untidy, scrappy area behind the existing Bank and reduce the noise as well.

“I’d like to see it opened for the season after next, so the season starting August 2016. Hopefully by then we’ll be an established Championship side but this stand will happen whether we are a Championship side or whatever division we are in.”

The Trust see placing a roof on the Stratton Bank as a major part of attracting more new fans to the County Ground and Welsh stressed that they are fully committed to completing the project.

The £500,000 needed to finance the construction, according to Welsh, would ideally be made up of an 80 per cent contribution from businesses and 20 per cent from other sources, such as supporter donations or fundraising.

“We are determined to achieve this. We have talked to some corporate supporters about providing some finance for the stand but we will also be talking to the wider public and fans of Swindon to support this as well. We’re quietly determined to get this done,” said Welsh.

“We would like to see something like an 80-20 split. I think that would be great. I think a lot of people recognise that, to move the County Ground forward, this needs to occur.

“We’re working very closely with Mark Isaacs, the stadium manager, and Steve Anderson, the general manager. They’ve been very positive. Everyone who works at Swindon Town understands the necessity of doing this.

“We’re here for the long haul, we’re here for whoever eventually runs this club. Lee Power is doing a wonderful job at the moment but we’re here for the long haul and the Stratton Bank is very much part of that.”

When asked when the Trust intends to submit plans for approval, Welsh said: “Once we have had the discussions with the club and the council and the residents then we’ll be ready to do that. I suspect that will be in the next few months.”
