An artist’s impression of our new indoor training ground can now be seen for the first time.
The training ground, which is expected be named One Call Sports Hall, will be located at the side of the current training pitch next to the Ian Greaves Stand.
Chairman John Radford is set to invest an initial £500,000 for the build of the new facility, which will eventually be available for community use.
Joint Operations Director Paul Broughton, who is overseeing the project, said: “This is a hugely positive move for the club. It will be a state of the art facility and will give our players a first class training base.
“It is all part of our long-term commitment to improve all areas of the football club and take us to the next level,” he added.
Manager Paul Cox said: “The building is just one of a number of positive things which the chairman and I have previously discussed.
“We will make this club a sustained success. We want to make sure we have good facilities and a quality infrastructure.”
The facility, which will contain an indoor 3G playing surface, is expected to be constructed by the start of the 2013-14 league season.
