Stadium Boost: Builders Move In

Colchester United could move into their new stadium as planned for the summer of 2008 after Councillor John Jowers declared over the weekend: "We are now 95%-plus likely' to have a football stadium at Cuckoo Farm in time for the 2008/09 season.

The news is a great boost for everyone involved with Colchester and the surrounding community, especially after recent fears that the development had been stalled due to a lack of signed paperwork, which one project leader was move enough to label as "embarrassing."

Following the highly publicized row over the deals, last Saturday`s East Anglian Daily Times reported that a new management company will be formed to run the development.

As senior councillor Jowers explained: "We are on target - we now have to agree exactly what we want."

The package now means that physical building work and the building of the 14 million development can begin next month.

This is great news, although will still be smaller than some League 2 grounds, like MK...
