Camberley Town FC unveils plans for new stadium

Tue 29th Jun 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Camberley Town Football Club has this week revealed exciting plans for a new stadium, clubhouse and five-a-side football centre.

Subject to achieving the necessary approvals, The Club is seeking to move from Krooner Park, their home since 1923, to a new stadium next to the existing ground. The old Krooner Park ground will then be redeveloped as a five-a-side football centre as part of a £3.5 million investment in new sports and recreation facilities for Camberley.

“Over the past 90 years Camberley Town FC has struggled with a lack of money and below standard facilities. This fantastic scheme is an opportunity to secure the long-term future of the Club and ensure it remains a key asset for the town,” says Ronnie Wilson, Chairman of Camberley Town Football Club.

In addition to the new stadium and five-a-side football centre, this major investment will also provide new mini grass football pitches on nearby Crabtree Rec, a former waste ground, for formal and informal community use. The proposals will be sympathetic to the current appearance of the Rec and will ensure that the area remains open for dog walkers, skate park users and all others.

“The Club will not only be providing much-needed new community sports pitches, we will also be improving the quality of the soil and turf on the Rec, helping to ensure that this area remains a focus for sports and recreation for everyone in the local community” Ronnie Wilson added.

A planning application for the scheme will be submitted to Surrey Heath Borough Council later this summer. Ahead of this, the Club will be presenting the plans to the local community and listening to their views.

Camberley Town FC is inviting everyone with an interest in the future of the football club, Krooner Park and Crabtree Rec to have their say on the proposals. There will be a public exhibition of the plans in the clubhouse at Krooner Park on Friday 2nd July (2pm – 8pm) and Saturday 3rd July (10am – 2pm). Members of the project team will be available to explain the proposals and answer any questions.
