Southport FC’s newest director Phil Hodgkinson has revealed the club will carry out major work to renovate and modernise the Merseyrail Community Stadium.
The work will begin this summer, with the main stand set to be stripped out and re-fitted.
As well as every seat being replaced by ones in the club’s yellow and black colours, a new roof will be installed, replacing the current one which leaks in various places, and new dugouts will also be fitted.
Internally, the facilities inside the stand will also undergo major renovation work to become more modern and fit for purpose.
As such, the players will benefit from brand new changing rooms, while supporters and sponsors will be able to enjoy an improved Grandstand Bar and corporate facilities.
The plans for the main stand have been fully costed, with architect’s drawings due to be released in the coming weeks, and will be financed through a £350,000 sponsorship from Pure Legal Group, the company owned by Hodgkinson.
