We keep hearing about plan B, well hears thought, bearing in mind what Fev achieved with the old Scarborough stands, how about having a look at whats happening at Bury FC. As far as I am aware they are in the hands of the receiver and are millions in debt so would be open to sensible offers for any of there equipment....ie stands. Is it beyond this club to do what Fev did? Gigg lane is a 12000 all seater and looks as good as anything in the league. Just a thought. Oh and happy new year.
The stands that Fev took were relatively modern structures that were basically steal, concrete and cladding...... I can assure you that the stands at Bury aren’t modern and it’s not simply a case of making them an offer and taking them down. Basically it’s never going to happen if would probably be cheaper to design and build a new stand .
Hi Sirocco, when you say you can assure me about Burys stands being of the older type I take it you havn't actually seen their ground in recent years. Just google Gigg Lane Bury and there are loads of photos of the ground. One full side and end looks newer than most super league grounds (exept Headingley).

Am really thinking it's not going to happen when one off biggest backers for saying its def going to happen sirocco7 is on about building new stand down lane
I never said it wasn’t happening.... the last communication I had with lateral was in July when they said Brexit was holding things up but the project would be delivered. Brexit hasn’t happened yet hence the delay.... if we are no further forward by the end of the year I may start to have doubts.

As a fairly recent addition to this forum, welcome by the way, you certainly know a lot about sirocco7 and their thoughts on the proposed new stadium. Kudos to you for reading all 148 pages of this thread. Do you think the new ground will happen and, if not, what are the main blockers to this?
Thank you for your feed back my view is hope it happens but getting less confident as the years role buy. What's stopping it I think it as to be finacial reasons when all planning is done and ready to go.

Can any body tell me if this is true,
not being past the site for while but being told all the porta cabins have being moved off the site. If this is true about time somebody made a statement about it not happening what the new plan is.

Those flags up the poles on site look tattered. They look like something off a battle scene from the Napoleonic wars.

Get a plan B looked into Cas it isn't going to happen.

Time for everyone to come clean and give us the true picture even if it means huge disappointment.
Burying our heads in the sand and hoping for the best as run it’s course. We need movement now wether it’s a new stadium or redevelopment of some kind down the lane.we cannot continue as we are.

I wonder if one day we will merge with Wakefield have a ground built somewhere in the middle have a team that can bring in marquee players and mouth watering signings

Sharing a ground would be the best thing for me.
