I'm glad somebody looked that up. I started looking myself but soon realised that I didn;t know where to start.

If Town could ever purchase/own that whole area (inc Cricket Ground and Athletics track), that works out about 10 hectares. That's a serious chunk of land to play with.

Let's not forget, there is already a cricket field and running track (albeit grass) over the road at the College. surely with some serious partnership or integration the Swindon CC and Swindon AC could be moved to the college (with the promise of having purpose built facilities).

A brand new CG could then be plonked somewhere in the middle of all three of the old sites and hey McPresto. A new ground, still on site.

I know nothing about who owns any of the existing sites, about serious planning (a la Horlock) and/or the possibilities of creating a partnership with the college but surely someone with more gusto than I has considered the land around and how things could be shuffled? In not only a more efficient way but almost certainly more positive, going toward the future too.

A very rough calculation on line suggests that Ashton Gate physically (without car parks etc) occupies c. 2.5 hectares, the country ground 1.94 although that doesn't include the car park. Not sure who owns all the ground behind the DRS?

I seem to recall that all the land around the ground is in one freehold title and presumably the registered proprietor is the council. Official copy entries are available from Land Registry for £3.

If you have a question Reg. Do talk. Not like you to be shy. I thought you might be the man to inform about all of the above and reason why or why not, and so on.

I missed this one last week.

The Cowleys sacked by Huddersfield. Couldn't have happened to a nicer couple of individuals.

10 months after costing £500k from Lincoln! their style and overall demeanor upset the Huddersfield board and fans.

I think they will fail because they have not adapted to promotion in the way that they will have to at Huddersfield.

The Huddersfield fans will not take kindly to that style even if it gets results, also they will be working with far superior quality players who will not want to play that style either.

At Lincoln they had a lot of players on board with their ideas, they were willing to run into the ground for them as they themselves were rejects from other clubs mostly.

It will be at least the transfer window before they can get the players in to play their way as with them its play the Cowley way or the highway as they did when they took over at Lincoln.

They have (so far) bought players to play a system and not played a system to suit the players which will be a new concept to them up there.

Just my own gut feeling but I think they will not succeed, certainly if they don't themselves adapt and the style of play too.

TBF to the Cowleys, when they took on Terriers, they had 1 point form the opening half dozen games and were at the foot of the table.... added on to the previous seasons efforts, it was a side heading for Div 3 that had forgoten how to win. Managing to keep them up this seson would have been their first target... they succeeded.

To be sacked in 10 months I would call that a win. Not that many managers would keep their side up and be sacked inside 10 months.

Absolutely, they have actually succeeded now at all 3 clubs they have been at.

2 successive relegations would have been an absolute disaster. Huddersfield want to go in different direction now, fair enough, Cowley’s stock is still high and probably won’t have too much of issue getting another decent(ish) gig

Back to Lincoln when Appleton is sacked after a poor start to the season.

They'll probably end up at whichever decent sized League 1 club pulls the trigger on their current gaffer first. Could see them at an Ipswich or Peterborough if they start the season poorly.
