  • "The club are looking seriously at re-locating to a purpose built, modern stadium at Water Eaton. It could be the most easily accessible stadium in the UK with it's brilliant transport links.

    That's where the future lies and the club has strengthened it's board accordingly. You need a good balance and mix between sport and business in the boardroom and I agree when a club is owned and run by a family fiefdom it never feels right."
