Swann: Stadium still on track

Swann: Stadium still on track

Swann's vision of a 12,000 all-seater stadium, believed to be slated for land close to Glanford Park, were revealed to fans earlier this season.

He has ambitious plans of being able to move in to a new site for the start of the 2015-16 season, even though an application for planning permission has not yet been made.

In a statement, Swann said: 'The current situation re the Sstadium is as per recent statements and on time. further negotiations are continuing but we envisage a further update at the end of next week.

'We are still working for a completion next year and although planning has not been presented at this time it does not effect the time-scales of the build. I look forward to updating all of you shortly.'

The club have revealed changes to the much-derided catering at Glanford Park, which are to be run by the club again after a period contacted out which saw standards plummet.

This includes a return to the popular Lincolnshire hot dogs, which will be foot long, plus mushy peas with pies and better quality beef burgers.

Swann added: 'We are improving our restaurant and catering facilities so we can offer a new and varied menu for next season which we hope will have your approval.'
