Plans for a new 8,000 capacity stadium for Workington’s football and rugby teams have been revealed.
Allerdale Borough Council will develop the ground at Borough Park, the current home of the town’s Northern Premier League club.
It is hoped that it will be completed by 2021 and is estimated to cost £15m.
Mike Rollo, commercial and finance director at Workington said: “It has been an exciting journey getting to this point and I’d like to thank the council and Workington Town for their cooperation.
“There is going to be some intensive work over the next few months to get this vision to reality, but we are ready for the challenge.
“It is our key objective to deliver a strong sustainable future for the club and to bring our fans along with us.”
Workington Town’s Barry Scholey told the News & Star: “The concept designs look fantastic and set the bar for the ambition we have for the facilities we want for our players, our supporters and the local community.
“Of course there is a lot more work to do but we’ve worked well as a team on this so far.”
The plans are expected to be submitted for approval this winter.
After the club posted about their new stadium plans, fans were left feeling rather mixed about it all, with some thinking it will probably never be built – take a look at that reaction on the next page.
