Remember the whole Great Coates thing - NIMBYS, the financial crash, newts etc - I seem to remember that another point of contention was that the club couldn’t buy the land from the owners, for whatever reason? I definitely remember the land being owned by Sir Richard Sutton Estates. Well, it would appear that he (Sir Richard Sutton) has been murdered in his home today by an intruder!! It’s on the national news.

Nowt to do with us nowadays, but thought I’d bring it up. It’s a mad world we live it.

Great Coates was "only" around 2001 or 2002 wasn't it?

I remember some talk about a new stadium near Morrisons off the A46 (Laceby Acres) back in 1994 as the club faced up to the impending Taylor Report deadlines.

All gone quiate with this regeneration thing , Should be gratefull for the hotel YMCA ,  and football will be the last thing on planners minds when it comes to handouts

I questioned it on here years ago when most people on here were  hoping that Peaks Parkway would come off. I couldn’t see where the money was coming from. It wasn’t popular asking questions like that. I was told it was too soon for such details. Details like how are we going to find £22m. Some people even said I had no business asking such questions.

Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I lived in Great Coates then as well. I was looking forward to a short walk up Woad Lane to the new ground on match days - how wrong I was!!
