Work to ensure Worcester City’s return to their home city after a seven-year absence is ‘well on schedule’.
It was announced in December that there was an ‘in-principle agreement’ for the club to return to Worcester and play at the County Sports Ground on Claines Lane. The intention stated was for the club to be back there in time for next season.
The club have been playing at temporary grounds since leaving St George’s Lane in 2013, with Bromsgrove Sporting’s Victoria Ground housing them recently.
There is positive news, with the club commenting: “The ground and first-floor shell is complete, with the roof being installed next week followed by cladding.
“The new 3G pitch is also rapidly progressing and overall work is well on schedule. We are on track to return to Worcester after a seven-year absence to lease the ground at Claines Lane from the Worcestershire Football Association.
“The move is fully supported by Worcester City Council, which has seen club and WFA officials working with David Blake, MD of the City Council. Work is making steady progress, with City on track to start the 2020/21 season at the site.”
