Marine set £100,000 target for stadium developments

Marine Football Club has set out plans to raise £100,000 to fund developments at its Arriva Stadium.

The Evo-Stik Premier League side has submitted for planning permission to build additional spectator facilities at the Crosender Road end of the ground and to install a new four corner floodlight system to Sefton Council, with hopes to make the renovations in the summer of 2012.

The new facilities include a 130 seat covered stand, a new snack kiosk and a fence extension to the perimeter walls.

Marine chairman Paul Leary said: "The provision of extra covered seating and a snack kiosk will help provide a better balance in the distribution of spectator facilities at both ends of the grounds and this will be a real benefit in the need of segregation.

"£100,000 is a lot of money to find but I appeal to the public and the many friends and supporters of Marine to support Liverpool’s premier non-league football club."

The club will also apply for grant funding from the Football Foundation to provide the balance of the total cost of the scheme which is thought to be about £130,000.  The new floodlights would allow the club to satisfy FA ground criteria to compete in the Blue Square Bet North if it was to achieve promotion.
