March Town FC: Permission for clubhouse

March Town United Football Club announced they have received planning permission to build a clubhouse at their GER ground in Robingoodfellow’s Lane.

The club announced on its website on Tuesday: “Exciting times are ahead for the Hares.

“Today marks a significant step forward for the Hares as we have received planning permission to build a Clubhouse at The GER.

“The hard work of the Board of Directors has seen the first hurdle overcome and we will now push forward to continue building the Club at the heart of the local community.

“We will of course keep everyone updated of progress through this website, our official Twitter feed @MarchTownFC.”

Manager Paul Crosbie added: “It is a very significant step forward for the club.”

The club had submitted its plans for the £140,000 project before Christmas and had earlier resolved its differences with the GER club over revenue.
