It’s all change at the Gallagher Stadium today with the removal of the Springfield end stand.
The terracing, which was installed in 2012 when the stadium was built and extended in the years since, has made way in preparation for the construction of a 1,700 capacity stand.
Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “The north end of the stadium looks totally different without that terracing, we’ve been so used to seeing it there.
“Work is really moving on apace but with such a tight timetable to complete the new stand, it’s essential that everyone’s on their game to deliver the finished product by next spring.”
Construction work will take place over the next few months, with completion scheduled for the end of March, in time for the ground grading by the Football Association.
This is the second major investment in the stadium in the past two years. Supporters can help contribute towards the cost through the Stand up for the Stones fundraiser.
The Bring the Stones Home plaque, which celebrated the supporter-led fundraising effort in the run-up to 2012, has been relocated to the Loucas Town End stand.
The Springfield end terracing has been sold on and will be delivered to its new owners in the near future.
