I think Albion are going to upgrade their ground at Myra Shay in the future, I don't they plan to stay at Horsfall long term.
What happened to the Dick Lane rumours/suggestions - http://nonleaguematters.co.uk/...cd1e3cbb1868c#285734
Apparantly, the BPA 'sugar Daddy' Bob Blackburn is unable to fund the development of the new ground in the current economic climate, so the plans are on hold for the time being.
Just as well, in my opinion, as who wants to watch football being played in a ground that (at best) can only attract a crowd to fill 10% of its (rumoured 20,000) capacity? All it would take is for the sugar Daddy to walk away and BPA probably wouldn't even have the finances to play at their own ground!
Locals to the area are all too familiar with these 'pie in the sky' ideas, as for years we have read in the local paper that Odsal Stadium was going to become the 'Wembley of the North' and have a 100,000 capacity and become a regular stage for FA Cup semi finals, Rugby League semis/finals/Internationals and would host some of the biggest and best music concerts in the Country.
These stories have been on the go since the 1980's (at least). What I think we should be doing is taking inspiration from Huddersfield's ground, which has a much more realistic capacity, has hosted RL Internationals and if I'm not mistaken (I'm sure Rob Grillo will correct me, if I'm wrong!) has hosted REM and Bon Jovi gigs over the last 15 years or so. Never mind, perhaps my 3 year old son will live long enough to watch sport being played in the Odsal Super Stadium and the opening of the Sir Bob Blackburn ground, as I'm 38 and not sure I'll live long enough to see it
There was speculation that Albion would attempt to ground share at Farsley, following the demise of Leeds Carnegie but as I've heard nothing more on this, I assume they are indeed sharing at Horsfall, a venue I've seen them play FA Sunday Cup games at in the past.
