Headlines today Grimsby Telegraph ( no link yet online ).

Grimsby Town hope to take plans for a new community stadium, with the goal of £200 million investment in related housing and retail development, to the next level before the end of the year.

The club's plan is to build a 14,000 seater community venue, with a 2,000- space car park.
A new retail and housing development will help fund the scheme and it is vital if it is to go ahead.

Over the next week, the Grimsby Telegraph will be breaking the matter down into a number of areas to explore the issues in detail.

Just wondered if this means Mr Fenty and board are now willing to prop the club up financially for this 5 year period, or it doesn't stack up.

If that's the case the future is bright

If my memory serves me right wasn't it 1995 when Bill Carr announced we would build a new stadium on the A180 site.

Before that I seem to remember plans to completely re-roof most of the stands if not re-build some of them including the corners at Blundell Park.

Has anybody seen the plans of the new stadium ?

The Telegraph keep showing the ones for the Great Coates site.

Also I will be in my 70's in 5 years time,

Any more delays and I will be pushing up daisy's,

Get a move on Mr Fenty,

I want to sit in our new stadium before I pass away.

This is true but when the club approached the council about planning permission etc the council replied that they would rather the club moved to a new site. The whole dynamic of football finance has changed a lot since then and whereas a refurbishment might have been financially viable then , it certainly isn't now.
