Grounds for Concern 2019/20 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Anybody hoping to tick Sheffield United Women or Sheffield Eagles Rugby League on the 3G pitch both currently use at the Olympic Legacy Park may need to do so this year as they are building a proper new stadium next door to it, which they hope will be ready in early 2020.

If I'm understanding this correctly it will be a new facility but will use the same 3G pitch.

It will be the same pitch/ground, not even started yet so early 2020 is doubtful.



We'll be, as we are, when all the fools who doubt us fade away.

Article is a bit misleading saying it's a brand new stadium to be built on the west side of the 3G pitch when in reality they are just building a new stand that side along with open terracing on other sides which still doesn't look big enough to prevent getting a free view of the game from the hill overlooking the ground.

I went to the opening game at this ground (as did IanS), and had a stroll up the 'hill' beforehand. Any stand on that side would need to be fairly high to block the view, though, when I visited, I can't recall anybody save the occasional dog walker pausing briefly to see what was going on.

What exactly is happening with Boston United's proposed move to The Quadrant? According to an article dated April 11 2019:

"The national league football team will play at York Street until July 2020, which is when the teamís newly renewed lease ends.

If all goes to plan Boston United will then relocate during the summer break to their new stadium in The Quadrant."

This move date appears to be an aspiration more than anything. Has work even started on the new ground?

When I went to Boston in April the supporters I spoke to reckoned they would be at York Street for at least two more seasons as work hadn't yet started on the new ground.

According to this month's Groundtastic, it is "99% certain" that Boston will be leaving York Street at the end of 2019/20 and the lease won't be extended beyond this even if the new ground isn't ready. So they are likely to end up groundsharing elsewhere from the start of 2020/21, at least for part of that season if not all of it. The new ground is still awaiting some funding being confirmed I think before they can even start building.

If anyone was wanting to see Windle Labour (Cheshire League) at Bobbies Lane, then you've missed your chance. They've been told that the ground is no longer available, and so they've decamped to JMO Sports Park in Skem.

Peel Croft, the soon to be demolished home of Burton Rugby Club and one time Football League ground, is staging a pre-season friendly between Pinxton and Mickleover RBL on Saturday 3rd August. This could possibly be for some sort of Charity Shield between cup winners - Pinxton won the Central Midlands League Cup, Mickleover RBL won the Derbyshire FA Divisional Cup South. Regardless this is an ideal opportunity for those who don't want to cross over to the dark side to tick this historic ground.

Still got his finger on the pulse then. I remember him also once saying that promotion from League 2 would be "easy". Boy, didn't that come back to bite him. Cool

Seems he fancies his chances of a successful appeal against the decision, far less clear if he actually fancies going through with it.

This coming season is our last at York Street. The new ground has started to be built, in terms of foundations and utilities but no steelwork has been erected. The enabling developments of housing and commercial units have begun, and some are occupied (including a drive-through Costa Coffee on the stadium side). It is expected that work will restart within the next few week, and take around 12 months.

We will be looking to groundshare for the start of 20/21 (expectation is Grantham, unfortunately!) with an agreement for the whole season, just in case. For me, I hope we move in ASAP with the stands built, and the necessaries (dressing rooms, catering, toilet, etc) installed, but continue to add the luxuries while we play there (banqueting suite, hospitality boxes, classrooms, gym) and as the houses opposie are sold.

I read this yesterday and am no better off. Is it a brand new build on the land behind Victoria Park because the "existing pitch at VP has now been altered" threw me somewhat.

Back in the Conf North days the club were pointing out the land behind current ground to anyone that was interested and saying it was going to be built wholly on it.

It does sound like a new build next door to the current ground, but I agree that the communication is very confusing.

The plan to build on land behind the ground is not new - it was already being planned on the last of my three visits to date, in 2013
Judging be the report, they have had to make changes to allow an access road for building the new ground
My understanding is the new ground is immediately to the west of the current one

Groundhop UK mention this in their latest release. Apparently it's Pinxton v Bakewell Town for the CML Chairman's Cup, KO 3pm. League cup winners v Divsion 1 cup winners. It'll be preceded by an 'international challenge' match, Netherseal St Peter of the Midland Regional Alliance v Garth Vader, Groundhop UK's adopted Sunday League team from somewhere in South Wales, KO noon.
(EDIT - thought this fixture warranted its own thread so details copied there).

Judging by a post from Andrew G in the rugby league section, it looks as if AFC Blackpool's Mechanics Ground needs to be ticked in its current guise sooner rather than waiting for them to appear on any future NWCL hop. A new sports village is proposed for the whole site including a new 3G football stadium for AFC Blackpool.

Sorry if posted elsewhere but noticed a piece in this weeks Surrey Advertiser that Elmbridge Borough Council didn't have proper planning permission and may need to demolish the Sports Hub where Walton Casuals and Walton and Hersham play. They're appealing and the 2 clubs can play there until the appeal is heard. May just be over the top a bit but worrying nevertheless

Slightly off-topic, but relevant for those who missed Northampton Spencer when they closed down a few years ago: Northampton Town have announced that their Ladies 1st team will be playing at Kingsthorpe Mill this season.



Cambridge City - on a tour of places we've never heard of and can't spell.

Went to Fulwood Amateurs today, which turned out to be the last 1st team game at the ground, in the current format.

Part of the ground has been sold and the pitch is being moved to the top of the field and the halfway line will become the new goal line.

Because of the sale, the 1st, Res and U21s will all play up the road at the same complex PNE Yth play.

All stands will be lost, though the changing rooms will be retained and a 3g pitch being laid.

Not all is lost, the u18s will continue to play there until building work starts.

Litherland REMYCA are hoping to be leaving Litherland Sports Park before too long. Should everything progress according to plan, their new home shall be at the PlayFootball facility (formerly the Civil Service Club), Drummond Road, Thornton. The Liverpool County FA are looking to shift operations there from their current headquarters at Walton Hall Park. In doing so, they shall develop the site - which currently consists of four unlit full-sized pitches alongside small-sided facilities - constructing (amongst other things) a Step 4-compliant ground. Whilst no definite timeline is in place, some of the more optimistic officials that I spoke to are hopeful that they can make the move at some point during the 2020-21 campaign.
REMYCA have actually played at the location previously. In its present guise it has hosted numerous Step 7 clubs.
