March Town FC are about to begin building a new clubhouse at their ground and want the facilities to be used by the whole community.

Organisations like groups, clubs and societies would be able to hold sessions, meetings or activities at the clubhousein Robingoodfellows Lane.

There are two meetings as part of the consultation process where plans are on show. One was at March Library on Saturday.

The second will be at the football ground next Saturday, 9.30-11.30am, prior to the first team’s departure for their game at Woodbridge, when striker Denny Escorcio returns after missing last Saturday’s defeat.

The club urges local people to come along, tell them what is wanted and help plan this community facility.

The Hares lost Tom Flatters to a shoulder injury on Saturday in Thurlow Nunn League Division One.

Joint boss Chris Bartlett said: “We never got into any sort of stride and 4-0 was a fair reflection.

“We were as poor as we’ve been this season.

“Extra time on Tuesday took its toll.”

Skipper Lewis McManus had a three-hour operation on Wednesday to repair the double fracture to his cheekbone and is now recovering.

The Hares lost 4-2 on penalties after the score was locked at 3-3 at King’s Lynn Town Res in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One Cup on Tuesday night last week.

March were two up in 37 minutes, via a Dan Woods penalty and an Escorcio chip. Lynn drew level with goals either side of half-time.

Woods fired in on 67 minutes, then Escorcio had one disallowed.

Lynn equalised on 85 minutes, and with no goals in extra time, March missed two in the penalty shoot-out.
