I don't even think you need a project manager to come up with realistic options. People just need to do a bit of research.

Regarding funding, the problem the club has is that because of grants available from the football foundation, it is very difficult to support funding streams from Sport England who are the other major funding body for sports.

You can have an entire 3g pitch and basic infrastructure like goals, floodlights, dressing rooms and perimeter fencing funded in its entirety with support of a county FA, but you need somewhere to put this.

There is no way the Football Foundation or Sport England would invest in the Athletics track. And if Sport England did, it would be to either facilitate Athletics or some other major community investment like a Sports Hall or a swimming pool.

Realistically, the easiest option would be to buy and redevelop an existing ground like Chalky Lane. Our money plus Football Foundation funding could get at least some sort of ground with 3g pitch, basic facilities and whatever we can afford to develop such as some small terracing or temporary seating like they have at Colliers Wood. Also, a 3g pitch is a must, apparently they can generate income of up £200,000 per year.
