What more info are you after that isn’t in the article?
PLAYING fields in Widnes are set to be leased to a non-league football club as part of plans to improve sports facilities in the borough.
The plans, which will come before Halton Borough Council’s executive board next week
Forced out? They will have to relocate almost certainly after a club promises £1m investment into something which costs the council £41k a year just to upkeep. Luckily there aren’t too many teams so it shouldn’t be a major logistical issue, as it would if there were a dozen age groups.
Sad that teams of comparable standard (I’m guessing) have such a difference in terms of backing/funding though!
As an aside I found it ironic to see the sign ‘all welcome’ on the corpy club building and the place shut having once been refused a pint due to not being a member.There were half a dozen in there at the time
