Kirkham On The Move

by Howard Jones
Sunday, January 20, 2008

KIRKHAM & WESHAM could again be moving to a new stadium after it was announced the club have lined-up a 26-acre site, writes Howard Jones.

President David Haythornthwaite revealed the plan on Friday evening on the eve of the club’s biggest ever match – their scheduled fourth round FA Vase tie at home to Midland Alliance side Studley.

Haythornthwaite said: “I’ve taken steps to try to secure the club’s long-term future with a facility that will take us up and beyond the level we are currently playing at.”

Haythornthwaite is keen to move the club nearer to its roots and while their home at Kellamergh Park has served the club well at Vodkat NWCL level, a move would be of benefit in the long term.

“I can’t reveal where the new ground will be located just yet.

“But I can say that it’s an exciting time to be involved with the club,” Haythornthwaite added.

The club moved to Kellamergh Park in Warton in July 2006 from long-term home Coronation Road in the heart of Kirkham.

The lucrative tie with Studley was called off at first light yesterday, after local referee Tom Conway gave the tie the thumbs down due to the waterlogged pitch.

The game has now been re-scheduled for next Saturday.
