    Thanks as always for your continued FCUM coverage.

    Just a small (but significant!) correction on the funds needed to be raised…the total build cost is estimated to be £3.5m not £5m. Once grant funding and the £500k raised through our Development Fund is taken into account, this will leave £1.5m to be raised from the Community Share Scheme, details of which will be announced very soon.

    Keep up the good work

    Excellent stuff. More power to them.

    Raising the money should be quite straight-forward when you don’t have to satisfy greedy agents, players and speculative owners.

    Hopefully any new ground can be built in stages as the club can afford them. Once there and freed from the onerous (and understandable) costs of playing at Gigg Lane they should experience a virtuous circle much as Wimbledon have done once they secured the ownership of KM.
