Having strung together some positive results in recent weeks, Mildenhall Town have been rewarded with some positive off-the-pitch news.
It has been confirmed that the Bostik League North Division club have reached an agreement with Mildenhall Parish Council over a new 25-year lease for its Recreation Way ground. Chairman Martin Tuck commented: “As a club we are so pleased to have secured the new 25-year lease at our Recreation Way ground.
“We can now look to the future with a very positive attitude with the assurance that all the improvements that the club has made to the facilities at the ground will be utilised to the full in the future.”
The Newmarket Journal reported earlier this year that Mildenhall needed to raise an estimated £30,000 to meet the necessary ground-grading criteria to remain at Step 4, with a deadline of March 31 for the work to be completed. The cost of the operation is being supported by the club’s two main sponsors, though there are still plenty of ongoing fundraising initiatives.
