The club announced this morning that work has started today on a £100,000 refurbishment programme at Stonebridge Road.
Club director Stuart Butler-Gallie (pictured) said, “We recognise that the general condition of the stadium is very poor and if we want to attract fans back to the club it is essential that significant improvements are made before the start of the new season. Our plan is to renew the two roofs on the Plough End and Liam Daish stands and to generally refurbish all areas of the stadium.
“This will enable us to progress discussions with Gravesham Council on the future development of Stonebridge Road and understand the impact of other development proposals for the area and any implications that may or may not have for the club – without having the added pressure of subjecting our supporters to leaking roofs and sub-standard facilities whilst these discussions continue.
“I would stress that the Council have been very supportive of the new club ownership.”
