Boston United chairman David Newton believes that ‘things are dropping into place’ as the Pilgrims close in on vital funding needed for their new stadium, the Boston Standard report.
The club has been awarded a grant of £250,000 from the Football Foundation’s Football Stadia Improvement Fund, while another multi-million pound bid could be close to being rubber stamped.
“We’re just waiting to finalise the funding through the Housing Infrastructure Fund,” Mr Newton said of a further bid, which has been made in conjunction with Boston Borough Council.
“Last February we were shortlisted for funding of £3.5m for the Quadrant development, and some of the funding can be used towards the stadium. We are currently going through the due diligence process on that and are hoping to have it finalised soon.
“We are also finalising a bid to the Premier League and FA Facilities Fund for funding towards the 3G pitch and associated changing, parking and community facilities. Commercial sales are also progressing.”
