GRAYS Athletic supporters visited Thurrock Council offices last week in order to hand in over 500 response forms in relation to the council’s plans for building across the borough.
As previously reported, Grays Athletic have been homeless for nine years and are not only keen to return home but have developed a community-led strategy to see a dream turn into a reality.
Grays Ath currently provide for over 500 footballers from 4 to 75 years of age including 25 youth teams including girls, Sunday, veterans and walking football teams in addition to the senior team.
A spokesperson said: “It is hoped the huge response will meet favourably with the decision makers to provide a much needed sports hub in the North Grays area complimenting the existing Rugby and Athletic clubs
