I will re-iterate that out of respect to the supporters there should be clarification that if a new owner is not found what will happen to the football club.

“ what will happen to the football club “
It’s all looking rather frail that there will be any sort of football played at LW next season.

Think most Boro fans were of the opinion when Thorne took over he would eventually bust the club.
Imo ,Thorne came into his new venture thinking he could fatten the club up and there would be queues forming to buy.
It’s all gone tits for him ,more so tits up for the folk who matter most .....us fans

Recon it’s all looking good for Tamworth

Gainsborough finished with 46 points. Poole in Conference South had 42 so Gainsborough would be reprieved.

Only skipped through

Not sure where these assumptions come from.




At the moment, there seems to be a lot of assumption going on that Nuneaton Borough will start next season, but at the moment it feels as though the situation surrounding the future of both the club and the Liberty Way stadium is as clear as mud, and we can be almost certain that the league will want assurances, if they are to allow Nuneaton to start next season.

Resignation from the Conference North.

I believe that resignation from the League has to be in the League's hands before April of the season. The League AGM will ratify the compilation of their leagues for the forthcoming season,and there is usually a really hefty fine from the League if a Club was to resign after the League's AGM.
Is it not unreasonable to assume that someone at our Club would know of the situation with the League right now ?

Seeing as no one from the club has said anything about not playing in Conf North next season I will take that as I sign that the intention is to plat in conf north.

There has also been no word on us not changing to an ice hockey club next season so I will take that as a good sign.

wonder if the land that was purchased the other side of the river is included in ground sale & who it is owned by - IN / LT or both?

You know the ground behind the main stand, with the conference centre in, the ground where the training / 3g pitch is?

People may scoff at community ownership but what have a succession of money men (they're money men so obviously they must be much more capable of running a football club than anyone else) given us - decades of broken promises, an embarrassing number of times we've gone bust, the list goes on.

Will community ownership work, who knows but it's the only 'model' we haven't tried yet.

The coop should be able to answer this.

quick look at the land Registry there are 3 plots of land registered at this post code (although the search says 4)

The Rugby Club
The Football Club.
and......
6, Slingsby Close, Attleborough Fields Ind Estate, Nuneaton, CV11 6RR

Strangely, no information is available for the football club.

just looked at map, and Slingsby Close is not far (as the crow flies) from Crows Nest pub. I guess a mistake with postcode.

I think the bridges you are referring to are over the flood relief system run by environment agency rather than the River Anker itself.

F.C. or rather ground owner approached British waterways for a Bridge over the river and were refused. Same when they approached council for direct access to Eastborough way.

Almost as if they saw skipgate coming years before it did ...

Just looked at the area on google earth, and unless I have the wrong area I cant see how that would help.
there does not appear to be a route from the industrial units, and certainly not enough for transport (assuming thats also needed)

It was something they tried.

I guess they would have needed some access from those units as well but IIRC British Waterways said a Bridge was a no go.

They’ve been wriggling on the access for a while as I think they knew what was coming.

We all know what was coming.
The Nuns had been sulking for years and it was only a matter of time before a chairman tried to flex his muscles.

Neither party was happy with the other and it was wise to find a way to not have to work together.

You’re right. Certainly been concerns about a landlocked ground for some time. The first person I saw predict the future problems was a poster on here called Halibut when the ground was originally sold.

But IIRC a lot of people tried to claim access wasn’t an issue when skipgate started although everybody seems to accept it is now.

You have go over one bridge which is deffo over the Anker to get to the Nuns number one pitch.
The other as you say is probably part of the flood relief scheme.
Clearly new bridges over the anker have been allowed in recentish times. The access road proposed by IN to bypass the Nuns land is another issue.

Maybe. I’m not sure how the Anker flows. Would need an aerial pic.

It could be that the Bridge Nuns use is the one that was there when it was farmland or British Waterways more relaxed because Nuns own the actual land surrounding it? Either way they refused the FC when they tried.

Good answer but my question was bad.

I meant does it curve round behind away end which I think it does and Boro Pod is right. I think there may also be another branch that goes straight on past seated stand.

I get mixed up which is the river and which is flood relief at rugby club.

Anyway football stadium in still landlocked. If I was buying a house I’d want my conveyancer to look into that.

Actually bad answer, flows east to west. Where it splits just after the ground is still the river Anker. It then joins up again but starts in Wolvey.
