We streamlined their blueprint to our lightweight, modular design with 6 rows to deliver a simple, long lasting and cost effective solution. The stand is designed with three disabled bays at each end for plenty of wheelchair access and has optimum line of sight for all spectators.
Football Foundation funding matched money raised by the club and after a successful meeting on site with the club and the main contractor responsible for the facility building behind, it was agreed to award us the contract for the new stand.
We exceeded expectations in terms of construction timescales, having the stand completed well ahead of its official opening on 13th October 2018. Officially named as The Eric Whalley Stand in honour of the club’s former chairman and owner, this is a robust, clean-cut creation meeting all the client’s criteria and one that we are very proud of.
“I would just like to say thank you to everyone for being involved in this project and the hard work you put in on it, as we and the client think that it is a fantastic end product, and hopefully we will be able to work together on the next couple of phases of this club going forward.”

The club were planning to demolish their old “Cow Shed” stand and provide a family-friendly solution with approximately 1000 seats, along with new facilities to the rear, to reflect the family atmosphere they wanted to create at their ground.
A dugout, subs bench or team shelter is an integral part of a sports stadium designed to keep players and coaches covered, comfortable and dry.
Our modular stand design means that our designers can adjust the stands to fit the space you have or add to existing stands.
