Club looks to hold meeting with William Edwards to discuss a planned new stadium back in Grays
GRAYS Athletic Football Club has welcomed the recent confirmation that the South West Essex Community Education Trust’s (SWECET) application to build a new free school has been approved.
A spokesperson said: “We would like to pass on our congratulations to all involved and wish the Trust all the very best with the development of Orsett Heath Academy. We are sure that this new facility will be a fantastic new asset to the community.
“As documented in the SWECET brochure that explained their proposal, the possibility of Grays Athletic Football Club being part of the development at the proposed site, as part of a sports hub, has been discussed with the Local Authority and SWECET.
“Following this significant announcement from Government, the Club looks forward to meeting with the key people involved after the Easter break to further those discussions.
“A further statement will follow from the club in due course.”
