Man City Transfer Target!
Jun 28, 2014, 12:46 PM
... just a couple of points of interest...
Alresford Town SP24 9EP - should be SO24 9EP - though it is only 5 miles nearer So'ton than S(P)alisbury - so of course you're excused!
Hythe & Dibden (As Blackfield & Langley until early October when new ground ready. No idea of that post-code)
...new ground will be at at Clayfields Sports Centre off of Claypits Lane - Postcode currently given as SO45 5TN
Bit of news re delays to opening hence g/share @ B&L - seems to be trouble with the pipework (taken from H&D's website)
Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen problem with a gas pipe, Hythe won’t be ready to play at their new home as early as planned.
They had hoped to be in for the start of the new Sydenhams One season, but will temporarily groundshare with neighbours Blackfield & Langley while repair work is carried out.
“It’s put us two or three months behind,” Cox explained.
“There was subsidence at the end of the (clubhouse) building and the roots of a tree got wrapped around the gas pipe.
“They’ve taken the trees out and hopefully the rest of the repair work will be done by the end of next month.
“We’ve got new floodlights to go up and we had the Football Association down last week and are in negotiations with them over grants.
“Hopefully, if the contracts are signed by then, the clubhouse will be up and running at Clayfields by the beginning of August and we’ll have the reserves playing there for the start of the Wyvern League season.
“The Sydenhams League have said we can groundshare for up to 13 weeks and Blackfield have been very generous to us.”
