Stotfold FC were delighted to open their new JSJ stadium on Saturday 8th February after saying goodbye to Roker Park where they have played since 1965. The New Roker Park is situated on Arlesey Road, Stotfold, SG5 4HE and was delivered by Settle group as part of a £2 million pound relocation in return for housing development at the old site. This momentous occasion has been greatly assisted by the pivotal involvement of Stotfold Town Council and Central Bedfordshire Council in making the 20 year dream a reality.
Stotfold Town Council have invested substantially into the playing surface by joining the Pitch Improvement Programme and working closely with Regional Pitch Advisor for the IOG – Phil Jeggo to provide the ideal pitch quality surface for the football club to manage as they now settle into their new home moving forward.
Bedfordshire FA and The FA provided support and guidance in the early stages of the build to ensure Robert Lombardelli Partnership and Borras Construction adhered to the ground grading requirements. As a result of the planning conditions to relocate the ground, the infrastructure will future proof the club in seasons to come as it is suitable for providing football up to Step 4 of the National League System.
