The Gallagher Stadium – the new home of Maidstone United

Terry Casey and Pat Gallagher

Maidstone United have agreed a £150,000 five-year stadium naming rights deal with the Gallagher Group, the largest privately-owned building, civil engineering, quarrying and property business in Kent.

The club’s new ground, which is being built on the outskirts of the town centre, will be called The Gallagher Stadium.

Gallagher Group Chairman Pat Gallagher said: “Maidstone United’s homecoming is a momentous event for both the club and the town. We are proud that we have been able to help the owners get the project off the ground and it is a wonderful gesture for the club to put our name to the new stadium. There is real excitement building ahead of the stadium opening and it will bring a great lift to the town.”

Maidstone United co-owner Terry Casey added: “Maidstone United is extremely fortunate to have such a loyal and generous supporter as Pat Gallagher and the Gallagher Group. We are delighted with the company’s support and look forward to working with them to complete the stadium in time for our proposed first pre-season game, which is planned for Saturday 14 July 2012.”

The Gallagher Stadium is the first football ground in the country to include a hi-tech 3G pitch from the outset. The synthetic surface will enable the facility to be used by the club’s first team, their 25+ community teams, as well as other local clubs, businesses, community groups and schools.

      Really pleased to see that there are others out there who believe in and follow non-league football. I remember the days of league footie with the stones and may we get back there soon. See you at the first game.

    No longer live in Maidstone, but followed the Stones when the highlight used to be against Gillingham in the Kent Cup, many moons ago. Still keep an eye on them from a distance, and wish them well at their new Stadium, what a contrast to the old Athletic Ground at the bottom of Queens Road.
