Stones Get Green Light For Gallagher Stadium Revamp

Maidstone United will be able to expand their Gallagher Stadium home after an agreement was reached with the council.

The sale of a strip of land on the river side of their home has been given the go ahead.

It means the National League South club will be able to build a 650-seater stand when they feel the time is right.

“This is only a small strip of land but acquiring it is a giant step for the club,” director Oliver Ash said on the club’s wesbite.

“It brings us and the town closer together and has improved the understanding the council has of all the community benefits produced by the club.

“The land is essential to open-up the west side for future development. Its purchase will enable an exciting stadium development programme based on a master plan for a stadium with the capacity of 6,000 with 2,000 seats to become a reality from a land point of view.

“The intention is to launch the development when finance allows and depending on our league requirements.”
