    “Wealdstone were permitted to build a new ground there, but their building partners collapsed, meaning that the land was put back out to tender. Barnet FC won this bid, but the planning permission granted explicitly stated that the ground was not for professional use and that the only team allowed to use the main stadium was Wealdstone FC”

    The inference here being that the stadium could be used by a semi-professional club , which in turn would suggest ‘non-league’. However, there are many ‘professional’ clubs now plying their trade in the non-league pyramid so the terminology could be seen as both arbitrary and confusing.

    Would Barnet’s case for this ground be stronger if they were actually relegated to the Conference and went part time?
