Gloucester City Football Club continues to attract new sponsors in light of recent good monetary news made by the club, whilst it continues to formulate new plans for a new stadium back in the City.\r\n\r\nSteve Gooch Estate Agents, and a company which wishes to remain anonymous, have agreed to financially support the club with matching donations.\r\n\r\nGooch, owner of the Estate Agents which has a number of branch offices around the county, was more than pleased to become a new sponsor and to be involved with the football club.\r\n\r\n“I maybe a Derby County fan for my sins but here at Gooch Estate Agents we believe strongly that having a local club playing at a good standard, is not only a benefit for them but the City itself,” Gooch said.\r\n\r\n“We would encourage all businesses to consider doing something similar.”\r\n\r\n“Not only do we recognise how important it is to the club to continue playing at the level they are at this time, we are impressed how they have faced facts, restructured and are now debt free.\r\n\r\n“Of course they still need help and we are pleased to be able to do so. We wish them all the very best for the coming season.”\r\n\r\nIn stadium news, it is now well documented by the City Council, in papers released Monday; the club will seek to formally have their original plans for a stadium and other amenities at Meadow Park “determined” by the Planning Committee on 6th August.\r\n\r\nBy following this route, this will allow the club to submit an application for a scaled down stadium along with parking etc, to hopefully enable the club to return to the City without the issues which have plagued the club and continue to surface with regards to the Environment Agency.\r\n\r\nThis confirmation is also against a backdrop that the club stated last week it still considers another possible option at the Civil Service Sports ground off Estcourt Road could be viable, to end the club’s days of being nomadic.
