Just a brief point about something Daws has mentioned often enough. The U14s played in a Competition at ManUs Training Ground. We were the only Category 3 side invited /playing. Wigan have just been elevated to Category 2 because they have Indoor facilities that are a requirement. Plenty of talk from TH /PR but no action. Must have some Cash realised from land sales at Ingol, so it's time to comply with the Planning stipulations. Just multi - tasking, I seem to recall that PR indicated that the Academy would stay at UCLA. That being the case, it's their land and his money so can't see it happening. Cat3 forever then
Just mentioned this on twitter, apparently we have something in planning for Springfields.
This was all part of the new training facility plans with the youth then moving into Springfields. Some people getting panicky because it looks like we are doing work there, Doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing, could be long term with youths in mind.
Interesting to see what happens with the new training grounds planning permission if it is meant to run out this month.
Whilst planning permission is generally given for 3 years it only expires if work hasn't begun. In this case it can be maintained that some preparatory work has been undertaken. Be interesting to see what claims the club makes to stop the expiry.
