REPRESENTATIVES of the club were treated to a tour of Aveley FC’s new ‘Parkside’ Stadium last week.
Currently under construction, Aveley’s new stadium is only a stones throw away from their long term home at Mill field.
Following the recent news that the Blues have agreed a two year groundshare at the new stadium Club representatives were invited to take a look around Parkside by Aveley’s secretary Craig Johnson.
Work on the new ground is moving at pace and is due for completion at the back end of July 2017, in time for the 2017/18 season.
A club spokesman said “It was great to take a look around the new Parkside stadium. The club would like to thank Craig Johnson for the opportunity and we would once again like to express our sincere thanks to Craig and the board of directors at Aveley FC for agreeing the groundshare for the next two seasons. It is going to be great for both supporters and players to enjoy these brand new facilities and hope that our supporters will come along and support the Blues at Parkside
Following the recent announcement regarding the planned Orsett Heath Academy it is hoped that we will be in our own new facilities back in Grays within a few years, but in the mean time we are extremely grateful to everyone at Aveley for their continued support of the club”
