Seems like they are coming to Chippenham to train at Stanley Park. 

Almost like they are trying to extend there reach and perhaps nick a few town fans in the process.  Will be very interesting to see if they try to integrate into the local community of satellite towns in a way that the town don't seem to bother.

Newport County used to do it I think under Dean Holdsworth. Mostly to attract London based footballers to the club.

Barring the vegetarianism, if you took youngsters to FGR and then the CG, I think few would prefer the CG. New stadiums feel more impressive to the younger kids.

Not that I don't think the county is better despite its faults.

For kids it's about the size of the stadium and amount of people at the game.

I suspect very few of them would find 2,000 people at a glorified non-league ground more impressive

FGR's average attendance last season wouldn't even fill the Town End with its 1,753 and the highest gate was a mere 2,383.

I genuinely don't think many kids would prefer to be in a newer ground just because it is newer.

Even if their average goes up to a modest 2,400 thats still only half filled to its capacity of 4,800.

I didn't realise that it is essentially a 1 side and a 2 half size behind goal stands TBH.

I went to the old ground at the old lawn and it was your typical non league ramshackle missmatch of stands and standing, the new ground looks like a half size Huish Park (which is also totally souless) but I guess at least FGR has roof cover for a large percentage of the away support unlike Huish.
