The COVID-19 pandemic might have brought a premature end to the football season, but it hasn’t stopped Bridlington Town AFC continuing with plans to improve the Hudgell Solicitors Stadium, Queensgate. Part funded by the Advantage Coast CLLD Programme, yesterday (Monday 15th June) saw the new clubhouse make its way to Bridlington.
Last week Chairman Peter Smurthwaite said: “The “Big Day” is almost upon us now after having dismantled and transported our old building modules to Bellshill AFC in Scotland and the existing site has been cleared. PBS Construction (North East) Ltd having this week completed the construction of the new foundations.
Our subcontractor Integra Buildings Ltd have been constructing the new modular building at their Hull factory since we placed the order in March, 2020 and despite the COVID-19 pandemic have still been able to meet the original programme date.
We are pleased to announce the 7 modular units will be delivered and erected on site on Monday 15th June 2020. The project will be a valuable asset to the football club but also to the community of Bridlington being available for use seven days a week with the improved facilities.”
“The new building would not have been able to proceed without the help and financial grants from the “Yorkshire Coast CLLD Programme” in connection with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the “Football Foundation”.
More information will be provided later about other people and organisations who have helped make this prestigious project happen.”
