Workington Comets reach first major final since 2010


Workington Comets proved their hunger for silverware with a pair of dominant home wins to reach the Championship Shield final and set up a Knockout Cup semi-final against Edinburgh.

"Grounds for optimism as shared stadium plans progress


It was revealed earlier this year that Workington Town and Workington Reds had approached Allerdale Council to explore the possibility of building a shared ground.

A specialist stadium architect is set to be appointed in the near future with a view to initial designs for the ground being drawn up later this summer.

Up to seven potential sites in the area have been identified but there’s still an open mind on which would be best for the two clubs.

A board has been appointed to oversee the project and representatives have visited shared football and rugby stadiums to analyse lessons learned and commercial operating models used.

Potential issues associated with a shared playing surface have also been investigated through discussions with global leaders in the sector."


Full story at http://www.timesandstar.co.uk/news/G...e07ed7ee7cc-ds
Progress is being made, it would seem, as Allerdale Council has put out a positive press release with some preliminary designs for the stadium and details about the facilities.

From the press release:

"Oct. 11, 2018
"
Ambitious plans for a new community stadium and sports development for west Cumbria have been released by Allerdale Borough Council.


The planned development would be situated around the current location for the Workington Reds' ground and includes an 8,000-capacity stadium and a full-size synthetic pitch for community use. There are also plans to open-up and enhance the local riverside area. The location was chosen after looking at a range of site options with Workington Town rugby league club and Workington Reds football club.

The stadium is due to be the home of both clubs. They have been working with the council after they jointly approached it to see if they could develop first rate shared facilities in the town which would benefit the clubs, players, and supporters. With shared costs and new, modern and more efficient facilities, the new stadium would make the clubs more sustainable and encourage a bigger fanbase."
