It's in the process of being built; current ground in process of being flattened, new ground on opposite side of the road in very early stages of being built. Playing at Downfield this year I believe then should be back to new ground for next season I believe.

Great thanks, will add to the todo list for next season.

Works at the new ground apparently had an unforeseen interruption due to there being a bird's nest or some such, which these days triggers a shut down until the little darlings have left.

It was all still just earthworks when I saw over the fence from the top deck of a bus, but that was back at the end of September.

Old ground completely gone now. Shame because I thought it was a tidy little ground. Sharing with downfield for one season I think. Will find out and post at a later date

Sharing with Downfield again till at least Christmas I believe. As you say old ground gone but not much progress on the new one apparently. 

 

And the old ground may have been lots of things (a properly traditional junior ground with bags of history and “character” for example), but “tidy” it certainly wasn’t! Not on my last visit anyway.

Meant it was a decent junior ground. Actually worked inside the club rooms. ( like a tardis inside btw????).

I know - I got changed in there often enough. There were booby traps in the away dressing room where holes in the floor had been covered with that old carpet!

Well I was having lunch at the nearby Kingsway Farm on sunday.

Where I assumed the new pitch was being built is now open as a brand new Land Rover showroom.

So I drove along the road alongside Lundie Avenue as I now assume the park will be directly behind that showroom.

It looked like absolutely diddly squat has been done with any regard to a football pitch.

To me (I have no facts or knowledge) the Harp appear to have been well shafted with regards to a "quick fix".

It was due to be open some time this season.

Regarding where their old pitch was across the road. I would say that progress on any garage development appears extremely slow.

It looked like a building site a year ago and still does.

 

Up to date planning stuff is below

There's no floodlights in the recent drawings and it seems like that's because of a planning condition - hopefully any floodlights are approved as having a 3G pitch without lights almost seems a bit pointless.

As the car showroom is extremely well lit I would be suprised if lights were an issue.

think the new land rover showroom  might be a white elephant

with them reducing output + brexit + diesel emissions

might as well rebuild it as a footie ground

They must have read this and added floodlights.
