Maidenhead United have confirmed the club are pursuing the possibility of relocating.
The National League side, who currently play at York Road, say they are working with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to explore the potential of switching to nearby Braywick Park in Maidenhead. The club explain:
“We have carefully considered the options available to the club to realise the significant investment required to develop our facilities at York Road. In this context, it has been impossible to ignore the regeneration underway in Maidenhead town centre, and the opportunity which could exist to realise the capital funding we need through the disposal of our York Road ground and the relocation of the club to a suitable alternative location.
“The club has previously considered relocation. However, this has never come to fruition because a suitable alternative location could not be identified.
“As a town-centre club, we have always been clear that in order to move, we would need to identify a similar town centre location with equivalent walking, cycling, bus, rail and road links to those York Road benefits from. Having reviewed the relocation options available to the club, we concluded that Braywick Park, as the town’s existing sport and recreation hub, would be the most suitable location to move to.”
