Bath City’s chairman has issued an update to supporters on the club’s decision to vote ‘yes’ for a 3G pitch.
The statement begins:
‘To all Bath City FC Supporters
As I’m sure you are all aware, we have now reached a key stage in the discussions about the potential of installing a FIFA Quality Pro Pitch (3G) at Twerton Park. The Supporters Society Board has now set up a vote at the EGM on Wednesday 25th April, as well as online and by post, about progressing further with the investigations into the feasibility of the project and its overall effect and impact on the Club and community, and pursuing replacing the pitch subject to a sustainable business plan. The vote is open to paid up members of the Supporters Society as at the date of notification (11th April).
Hopefully you will have followed the debate and seen the information on our website about this. Both the full Feasibility Study and an Executive Summary are available to read online, and all the back-up sources of data are also available through the Club’s office – contact Carole Banwell if you’d like to see this. A lot of work has been done to date by a small, dedicated, cross-functional team, but we want to do more detailed work now to “stress test” what we have done so far and gather more information, especially about potential sources of funding.
The Supporters Society is now asking that all members vote “Yes” or “No” to the following motion:
“Bath City should immediately and provisionally pursue replacing the Twerton Park pitch with a “FIFA Quality Pro” surface subject to the conditions in the feasibility study being met. This would include a clear and sustainable plan to secure capital funding.”
