Our first fans forum of the 2023/24 season was held at Cedar Court Hotel on Thursday 9th November.
Discussing the new stands currently being built at The EnviroVent Stadium, Chief Executive Sarah Barry confirmed the new away standing terrace is on course to be complete within the next ten days, while the new home seated stand is due to be completed by the end of the month, subject to the relevant safety sign offs.
Facilities for the new stands will be ready towards the end of January, and include another refreshment kiosk for home supporters and bar for away supporters, with the new away capacity anticipated to be at least 1,148, an increase from the current capacity of 600, which has recently been reduced to 450 due to ongoing building works.
It was also revealed that attendances were up 22% on previous seasons, while Chairman Irving Weaver explained that a training ground that can accommodate all teams from Player Development Centre right up to first team was ‘right at the top of the agenda’.
