Camrose: The Next Steps

Following the council’s decision on Wednesday evening to reject the two Basron planning applications on the iconic Camrose stadium without a true ‘Like-for-Like’ replacement, this was a huge victory for the Community Club and its supporters, but just the first of many battles we are likely to face to get back to the Camrose or an equivalent second stadium. We thank the council for helping us to get back to Basingstoke at the Winklebury Complex,… Read More »Camrose: The Next Steps

Slimbridge 3-6 Basingstoke

A game of two halves has never been a truer statement as Basingstoke battle back from three goals to nil to emphatically win 3-6 away at Slimbridge at the weekend.

Two very soft early goals and then a good hit from just outside the box allowed for our Gloucestershire hosts to… Read More »Slimbridge 3-6 Basingstoke

Camrose: History Is Watching

Crunch time for football in the town Camrose Planning Applications set for Decision Rafi Razzak’s Basron Developments’ controversial planning applications come before the council for decision on Wednesday 23 September.

The bad news for supporters of the town’s community football club and other opponents of the plan is that the independent planning officer recommendation is to approve the proposals subject to ‘legal agreement’.

“I didn’t get much sleep, put it that way. It was a real gutting blow [losing on penalties], particularly when you look at the amount of chances we created and the quality of them – we deserved to win but the reality is, as we all know – that’s not how football works. For as good as Chichester were, and make no mistake, they’re a very good side and I’ve no doubt they’ll be contesting… Read More »News, Views and Updates
