Secure future for Leominster Town FC

The future’s looking bright for Leominster Town Football Club after it took over the lease of its pitch from Herefordshire Council.

Eddie Clark, chairman of Leominster Town FC, said he was delighted the club now has total control of the lease for the Bridge Street ground.

He said: “This really marks a new era for the club and we can now start developing the ground for the benefit of both the football club and town as a whole.

“The fact we have now taken over the lease means we can apply to the Football Association for various grants which can help us to improve the ground. We can then seek to climb the football ladder and play at a higher level than we do at the moment.

“We can also invest more in providing facilities to encourage youngsters to take up the sport and, as the largest market town in Herefordshire, we really want to create a football club that the whole county can be proud of,” he added.

Councillor June French, deputy leader of Herefordshire Council and a ward member for Leominster, said: “I am delighted the football club has now taken over the lease as this will enable them to better plan for the future.

“I would also like to thank staff from our property services and parks and countryside team for all the work they carried out to ensure this takes place.

“As a local member, I wish the club all the best and hope they are successful in achieving their plans to rise up the football leagues and perhaps we may even get to enjoy a day out at Wembley,” she added.
