Over the last few years the club has been working hard to find land suitable to develop into our own home; this quest has been undertaken for a number of reasons:

  • Increase awareness of the club to encourage more players of all ages and abilities to play
  • It’s a BIG part of the clubs development plan
  • It is important for our longevity and local responsibility
  • To become less reliant of outside pitch areas that see a lot of playing traffic
  • To become a larger part of the local community, having a space with which to host key club and local events.

Up till this point the locating of a suitable site has proved very challenging however housing developer Larkfleet Homes have recently presented the club with a once in a lifetime opportunity - to have a place to call their own, a base for the club, a home. 

Larkfleet are, as part of a new proposed development on the outskirts of Glinton are planning to allocate the club a substantial piece of land that would allow us to have 2 full size pitches along with a club house and changing facilities, providing not only a hub for the club but also the local community.

To aid the planning application process the club is need of YOUR SUPPORT; we need as many people as possible to sign the following petition to demonstrate the strong level of need we have to have our own home within the local community.

Representatives from the club will also be on hand to address any football related queries.
