Beverley Town Football Club are wanting to hear from residents as they look to install floodlights at their ground.
As a result of a pending planning application, the club is now looking to consult with residents about their plans.
Beverley Town Football Club’s Rich Jagger said the latest project part of a long term plan to raise the standard of football in the in town.
Explaining more he said;
“Around 2 years ago, we started an extensive redevelopment of our Norwood Park ground.
“To date, this has included relaying the playing surface. As a result, we are now proud to have one of the best playing surfaces in the region.”
“We were also delighted to have completed a new 54-seater stand named after local teacher Ivan Usher. This was support by his family after his passing to fundraise to help with the costs of construction.”
“The modernisation and continued investment of our ground would enable our teams to progress up the football pyramid.”
“This would give the local sporting scene a huge boost, really putting Beverley on the map in terms of football. It will also allow the area to benefit from the increased media coverage and footfall to games.”
“Raising the bar like this will also benefit the community giving the people of Beverley an excellent standard of football to watch. The feel-good factor having a successful football team can only be a good thing for the community.”
Mr Jagger also feels that progress the club is shown will benefit younger local players. He says that the addition of floodlights at Norwood will increase accessibility while increasing participation.

The club will host a residents’ forum on Wednesday 14 October (3-9 pm) in the Clubhouse at Norwood Park.
This will be to discuss the proposed planning application, listen to residents’ views and work together with neighbours on this project.
