Ground Grading of Winklebury Complex Confirmed
It has been confirmed that the Winklebury ground grading will be undertaken on Tuesday 13th October. The inspection, led by the FA with accompaniment of Southern League officials, will (assuming the work has been completed to a satisfactory standard) allow us to play our following home fixture against AFC Totton on the 24th October back in Basingstoke.
This does mean that our only scheduled fixture between now and then with Sholing will take place at Winchester City on the 6th October. Assuming ground grading is passed – that will be our last fixture at the site. We would like to thank Winchester City FC for their cooperation, flexibility and hospitality over the past year in what has been a tremendously difficult time for our club.
It has been a significant week with regards to our future – this clarity offers the countdown clock to truly start.
We are very much looking forward to getting back to Basingstoke where we hope everyone, supporters both new and old, will be supporting and getting behind your team, your club and your town.
We will be looking to place a friendly game as a way of testing the facility the week before – we will confirm once details are finalised.
