This is only a thought and I have no idea if it would work,

BUT

Could Town build our new stadium on the training ground at Cheapside.?


It's a while since you've been to Grimsby isn't it Pete?

Not suitable then ?

Would be very difficult logistically Pete.. See that I've been red crossed for my 'over to you John' post which I admit was a bit glib, however I do feel that we need a bit less talk and a lot more action. Other clubs, some smaller than ourselves, seem to be managing to deliver, why can't we?

The problem we have is the council,

It's a pity we do not have anybody on the council fighting our corner

I might be wrong, but I don't think the ex chairman does own the land for the new ground. I'm sure it's someone else. And the land for their ground is worth the same as it always has been as there's a retail park next to and opposite. the new M&S devlopment won't add any extra value as the value has always been there.



It seems a long time ago now, but was that retail development already there, I thought that the ground was there well before most of that now around it.

I was told the new M&S developement had made all the difference to the land value............. could be wrong though


]Remember its just my opinion  ..... It might not be true ............

I believe you are right there, that is how I remembered it as well. For my sins and at the risk of getting publicly slated and flogged I spent a few afternoons at glamford park when town were playing a huge distance away ie portsmouth or Plymouth and I couldn't afford to travel and it was never built up like it is now, but any new development for town would benefit from having similar retail around it.

Yes the ground was there before most of the retail outlets, but the site(s) were always earmarked for retail. It's been built up over the years but the M&S development was previously a garden centre and there are various shops, food outlets etc on both sides of the road.

Either way, Scunny have lots of people behind the scheme while we do not. And unfortunately, IMO, those not behind the GTFC scheme are shouting louder than those behind it.

Not big enough and near some prestigious houses. Nearby is the old airfield though adjacent to the A16 which I believe is still owned by The Ministry of Defence and has other leisure activities on it, golf course, karting centre. A big far out though and difficult to get to from the motorway, also unlikely to be of interest to retail or entertainment partners.

Always been my personal choice for a new site.........however.....it would appear that a relatively modern football stadium fairly close to Grimsby is about to become vacant, perhaps we could....
