HUNGERFORD TOWN’S Bulpit Lane ground has formally passed its ground grading inspection to secure Vanamara National League football next season.
Although fund raising efforts continue to meet the £140,000 cost, the essential work has been completed - and in only one month.
The club only received planning permission on February 28, and with the league deadline on March 31, it meant a frantic dash to the deadline with the erecion of a new stand, toilet block, terracing, turnstiles, dug-out extensions, spectator facilities and floodlights.
“It was a rush and a lot of hard work,” said head groundsman Steve Skipworth, “but it does leave a legacy at the club after how far we’ve come.”
