In a joint statement released to the Gloucester City website, co-chairmen Alex Petheram and Eamonn McGurk said
“It’s been a long and challenging road but we’re delighted to reach this milestone and finally place some significant orders with suppliers and give contractual commitments to others.”
“The next step is to conclude the pre-start safety reviews with the National League and FA. It’s exciting times for the club and the City.”
Mr Petheram’s company Soldi construction – who worked on the build of Stadium MK in Milton Keynes – will lead the construction of the new stadium which has been designed by Roberts Limbrick architects.
