The site will also incorporate a community sports area with two full sized football pitches and a cricket square plus a recreational and play facility for use by all of the areas young people.

The whole site will be managed by the Club and in line with their sport for all policy provision will be made for use by sports clubs and groups within the area for their own respective requirements.

Work on levelling the site will commence this autumn with completion by late spring next year and the construction of the facilities will begin around June 2011 for completion by December that year.

It is anticipated that the Club's teams will begin playing at their new home during the 2011/2012 season.
