I had a very good meeting with John this afternoon.

We discussed my proposals & he is going to take them to the rest of the Supporters Co-op Board, for their consideration.

He will come back to me with their response.

I explained that the best possible cost option, would be to remain at Liberty Way as a tenant (subject to the club being able to secure a 10-year rolling lease) & complete Ian Neale's project, by building a new 500-seater Main Stand sometime in the future (to bring the ground up to EFL standards)...& I presented my ideas on how we could do that...

...also, if we buy the land back, that would be a massive bonus...

...& that the prospect of leaving LW to build a new Stadium elsewhere, would be a massive challenge to the club & its supporters.

I have forwarded to him by email a pdf copy of the National League rules for membership/grading criteria, so that he can discuss it with his fellow Board members...to show him why LW is built as it is...very well designed & built without wasting money.

FA rules regarding pitch construction.

You will see reference to Desso pitches.

These are the hybrid pitches which include plastic fibres woven into the pitch at very close centres, to enable rugby to be played on a grass pitch in a ground-share atrangement.

From memory, I think the first one to be installed in England was at Huddersfield Town.

The Villa's pitch is a Desso pitch I believe...

When they were first introduced the typical cost was circa £600k but I believe the price has come down to circa £350k.

If I am interpreting it correctly, we already meet all the requirements of Grade A.

For how long though. The lease is due to run out in 5 to 6 years. If it cant be renewed which i worry it wont be. We need to look at alternatives. That is why the club are in the process at looking for new sites.

Did you not raise this with JH? the co-op has permission from the club to erect the disabled shelter on the Rugby club side.

Yes, we talked about the disabled supporters facilities & he explained to me what was proposed but he was struggling to find a local builder to do the work.

So, I've put out an appeal this morning to find one...

Just a thought, but if any of us posters were builders we may well have mentioned it to Boto before now.

You have not put out an appeal, more tapped a note to the underneath of your doormat.

Yes you said that.
Sticking point was always the club, so we have permission and funding perhaps you can persuade Ian Neale to put his Hi viz back on.

I really don't get all these long , long threads on weather the ground is upto FL or National standard . It's just a smoke screen that's deflecting people's attention from our immediate and real life problems . Our ground is more than adequate for our current level and support levels and the next levels up and the discussions are totally pointless and don't help anything .

Read the document Greg.

It's very readable & explains why the Stadium has been designed & built by Ian Neale as it has...

It's nothing to with me but I would like live long enough to see the Boro playing in the National again! lol

I have read the bloody document - and there's absolutely nothing there that says we need to be planning for entry requirements to a league three up the pyramid from where we are now - particularly as we are closer to heading down than going up!
