I highly doubt there is going to be mention of a new home next Thursday. Normal business has not resumed due to Covid-19 and I’d be surprised if there’s been much movement if any since Mr Anderson mentioned the possibility of 2 sites a couple of months ago, certainly not to the extent that there is anything that could reasonably disclosed at this time.

We are a long way (if ever) from kicking off in our own ground. We have no idea what will happen in terms of revenue streams, sponsorship etc not to mention the state of the economy, land values etc. Would the ground be part of a wider development or not?

Even if there is the acquisition of land for a ground there will be a planning application, public consultation and also a planning committee to get through. Assuming that happens we are probably looking at a year to build.

From a planning perspective there’s nothing guaranteed as our friends down the road at Woking FC discovered earlier this week.

Cray Wanderers initiallly fell foul of the Mayor of London.

Also any announcement regarding the ground would surely come from the Board rather Mr Bird?
