Hucknall Town boosted by stadium approval

Evo-Stik team Hucknall Town received a huge boost yesterday, after learning that planning permission has been granted for its proposed new stadium.

The club has been working on its proposal for the past five years and hopes that the new stadium, opposite the existing ground, will increase revenue and provide an opportunity for the club to resume its progress in non league football, which has been affected by the uncertainty of its existing ground and facilities.

The club has also entered into an agreement to offer more community involvement, training and education facilities.

Although there is still a lot of hard work to do, the side hopes to move to its new stadium during the 2012/13 season.
