A couple of months ago plans were announced to revamp Don Valley into a rectangular stadium. Richard Caborn seemed very confident it was a goer, anyone heard anything?
I thought that it had been announced that plans to look at plans for possible development were in the planning stage.........

Floodlights and fittings, maybe, but the stands themselves are concrete. They're not prefab like Scarborough's.
It might be worth a few clubs trying to do a Fev and take some of the stands to rebuild at their own grounds.

Could they not just move the pitch nearer the stand and knock the other ones down?
I actually like the main stand at Don Valley. It's just a shame it's nowhere near the pitch!

In answer tom the original question, it's all gone quiet for now.
Chances of the Eagles being in a shiny new rectangular stadium in 2015 - who knows? I'm not holding my breath.
North Derbyshire Chargers - join the stampede
