I wonder if they're waiting until they can couple the news with "progress" on a new ground, ie. the old Lovelace-Mitcham bait and switch.

Kingstonian are pleased to provide supporters with an update on a future home for the club:

Option 1 - The Club have had exploratory meetings with a higher education institution after a potential partnership. Cllr. Kirsch will now write to the institution, seeking a three-way meeting to explore the potential for a partnership with our Football Club. This would be similar to existing partnerships between sports clubs and educational establishments.
Option 2 - The Club has had a positive initial meeting (facilitated by a senior council officer) with a representative from a local sports facility. There is a potentially very interesting opportunity here that could entail a partnership with a well-respected local community organisation. Again Cllr. Kirsch will now write to the current tenants / leaseholders seeking a three-way meeting about the potential for Kingstonian FC to develop facilities there.
Option 3 - Finally, the Club has looked further into the potential development of an existing sports venue. Whilst the Councillors are not keen to dismiss any potential options, there are acknowledged to be complications due to the existing purpose of the site. However, this option will be examined further, in order to assess its viability for development.
Option 4 - Stay at Mitcham till we die, spunking away the wombles money on rent and shortfalls in the playing budget due to no one going to Imperial Fields.

While all four options remain on the table, Kingston Council have expressed a preference for option 4, and so we will continue to persue this option in partnership with them.
