Groundforce Weekend Postponed

Following a meeting today with Aylesbury Vale District Council, attended by Graham Read and John Newman, it has been decided to postpone the proposed ground force weekend.

This is merely a deferment, as the club need to satisfy the environment agency that any ground improvements will not impact on the surrounding area, as the Haywood Way ground is situated on a flood plane.

We also need to ensure that the correct planning procedures are followed, and that any concerns the local residents have are dealt with in a satisfactory manner.

The club is fully committed to ground share with Aylesbury Vale Football Club, and Aylesbury Vale District Council is fully supportive in our quest to upgrade the ground in time for the coming season.

As the delay will now take us past the deadline, set by the Southern League we have had to seek a further (match by match) ground share agreement with another club, that has the appropriate stadium grading.

This agreement will allow us to fulfil our home fixtures from the start of the season, whatever happens in the coming weeks.

The Club wishes to thank all the many individuals, organisations and companies that have offered their services, we will let you know asap when a new date has been set for the work to proceed.
