I think there is plenty of room over by North Quay and there's already a train station at Old Clee.
North Quay is, as far as I know, already earmarked for development for industry.

Grimsby docks re new ground,makes perfect sense. I'm led to believe its been looked at and the ball slowly rolling.


Any more details then? I'm intrigued.

I still want a floating stadium really.

I thought the GC site was earmarked as Fenty already owns that land so it wouldn't cost any more? I may have been mislead into that though...

Think the GC site was earmarked as we were in a different league then and we were looking at regularly getting several thousand away fans traveliing down the A180.

What about that spot opposite grimsby Leisure Centre, Millenium Park is it? 'Retail enabling development' could be incorporated in the sides of the stadium possibly?


Brilliant idea new ground on an old rubbish tip.
Would go well with with the last ten years of rubbish served up at the present ground.


Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play.
It is bound up with hatred,jealousy,boastfullness,
disregard of all rules and a sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence;
In other words it is war without the shooting.

We really love going over old ground again and again on here don't we?! The docks have previously been dismissed as unsuitable for one reason or another.

No,I think the land still belongs to Sutton Estates.    Oh agricultural land has doubled in price in the last ten years so if JF already owned it and different site is found RBoH will have a ball pointing out the profiteering chairman.

Wasn't Scunny's Old Show Ground built on a tip aswell. Makes sense why they were rubbish for years

Some interesting stuff there. It seems like the Great Coates ground is all but dead and buried now then but at least we've finally heard something new regarding it. Will be interesting to see what location they earmark next.

I wouldn't say the Great Coates location is dead, but the stadium and plans in their current form pretty much are.

As negative and backwards looking as it sounds, I'm quite pleased

Hopefully a bit more thought will be put into future plans with regards to trying to maintain a bit of character and soul in any new ground as opposed to the flat-pack identikit idea that had been lingering over us for much of the last 15 years.
