Boston United vice-chairman Neil Kempster has ‘absolute belief’ that the club will deliver their new stadium, the Boston Standard report.

Speaking at last night’s Fans’ Forum, it was announced that work is set to begin on the ground, located on the Quadrant development.

“The aim initially was to save the club, but also to put it on a proper footing on the community side,” said Mr Kempster, who joined chairman David Newton in saving the club from liquidation in 2007.

“But ultimately, putting it in a new home with a sustainable future.

“That’s what we set out to do 12 years ago, and that is what we’re going to do.

“David said we’re trying to magic up a brand new stadium – we thought would cost £8.5 million which is now £11.6 million – from thin air.

“We’re trying to give that as an asset to the community and a new home to Boston United and its Community Foundation to hopefully flourish and grow.”
