Marine to revamp Arriva Stadium

Marine Football Club has revealed plans for a new 130 seat stand and floodlighting system at the Arriva Stadium.

The Evo Stik League side has consulted floodlighting specialists Abacus Lighting to install a new eco friendly four corner floodlight system to replace the current floodlights which are over 30 years old.  As well as the new stand at the Crosender Road of the ground a new snacks kiosk will be built.

The club hopes the new improvements will ‘provide a better balance of facilities at both ends of the football ground’.

Marine chairman Paul Leary said: "The imbalance of facilities for spectators in our football ground is a cause of concern when we have games with large attendances and in the interests of spectator safety we need to provide additional facilities at the Crosender Road end of the ground.

"The club is in the process of communication with local residents, Merseyside Police and Sefton Council to fully consult and provide details and reasons for the building and floodlighting schemes."

"The proposals are subject to the completion of satisfactory consultation by Marine Football Club, to obtaining planning approval from Sefton Council and to raising the £150,000 of funds needed to pay for the building work and new floodlights.

"A drop in session has been arranged at Marine as part of the consultation process and this will be held on Thursday January 27th in the College Suite between 6:30 and 9:00pm. Invitations to attend the meeting have been sent to local residents in addition to representatives from Merseyside Police, Sefton Council and Abacus Lighting."
