Looks like Wellington Ams won't be going up again, for a 4th consecutive season they are finishing in a promotion spot (3 times champs). Maybe if this club started to put more money into ground improvements rather than paying their players obscene amounts of money then they would be in a position to go up. It's about time the league did something about them and threw them out of their league as they are stopping other clubs from progressing.
Having had a look at the ground in Google Earth, Google Maps and FlashEarth.com (with Google being the more up to date coverage) I'm not sure what more they could do to their ground, it appears to be very "hemmed in". GM indicates Sheltered Housing to the west, a road to the north, a primary school & private housing to the east and workshops on the south side of the ground. There appears to be hard standing along two sides of the pitch (east & south), the pitch does appear to be fenced off (I think there are fencepost shadows visible) but apart from some bare minimal parking space by the ground's entrance, the ground perimeter seems very tight on all the three other sides. As trees & hedges don't count towards perimeter fencing I assume the amount of shrubbery that may need to be removed to enclose the ground makes it a "conservational no no". I also presume the proximity of the Sheltered Housing is a significant bar to floodlighting. I wouldn't think it mattered what other facilities they provide on matchday, the lack of ground enclosure and floodlighting is a serious bar to a Step 6 grading. Without ground-sharing, or provision of a site where the club can develop the required facilities Wellington Amateurs will only ever be a Step 7 club.
See it's not always what you can afford
to do, sometimes its also what you're allowed
