The Club was delighted that Hastings Borough Council Cabinet have given their initial backing to the Club’s proposals to develop a new purpose-built stadium with ancillary facilities available for community use on Tilekiln Recreation Ground. The stadium would have an initial capacity of 1,950 but would be built in a future-proofed way so the capacity could be easily increased to meet required FA ground grading across the National League System.
The proposed new development will take the Club forward and protect its future. It will allow the Club to introduce such as women and girls, disability and walking football which to date the Club has not had the facilities to cater for. It will also allow the Club’s football academy to develop further.
Now the hard work begins in terms of getting the project to a conclusion to the satisfaction of the Club, Council, FA, and Sport England.
