Re: Help required, to clean the Arena

I’d agree some of the Arena haters (Raj) would have you think it was falling down. It does need a full deep clean on the outside and a lick of paint which I believe was in hand before the council pulled out of the sporting village.

Were blocks 1 to 15 the main stand?
It's the main stand, corner, and the first couple of blocks after the corner. If I remember correctly, blocks 17,18 and 19 were behind the goal.
Thought it was 18 immediately behind the goal, strange they haven’t allowed that by using 18&19.

Why did the academy move from BM and where is it based now?
Start of last season, based at the Dolphin and play their games I think at Billingham.

Re: Youth team

Very disappointing news, since they moved out of BM I’d heard things weren’t going so smoothly. A real shame as they appeared to have a really good initial set up and financially run well makes the club decent income. Hope the club don’t ditch the Academy.

Re: Ground share

Do the grant conditions specify what kind of football must be played at BM? Obviously it will host rugby football🤔 Apparently it can be any football at any level and there needs to be access from the main road. The grant if it ever was to be paid back lasts 10 years so we only have 5/6 years left.

Re: Ground share

Seems a sensible solution, those with Covid worries will be able to go there with plenty of space, it may attract other floating fans who prefer to sit and actually see the match and if successful perhaps sort out our long term ground solution. Not sure what the is pitch like but I’d imagine some wo...

Re: October

With a large percentage of older fans I can see many of these not attending until a vaccine appears. Also the Arena would have worked well for us plenty of social distancing could have been achieved.

Re: Sports village

The talk of building a new stadium next to the arena was never going to happen. Before Covid I would have said get back to the Arena ASAP, and possibly on today’s news we could still negotiate a great deal. If not it’s probably a case of the club just surviving not going for promotion and staying un...
