WORK on the new Fossetts Farm stadium will start within the next 12 months, according to paperwork filed at the High Court by the club.

The new stadium will also be paid for by Sainsbury’s, a defence statement against the Revenue and Customs administration application said. It said: “Roots Hall Ltd will sell the existing ground to Sainsbury’s and that Sainsbury’s will pay for the football club’s new stadium to be built.

“It is envisaged the construction of the new stadium will commence during this 12-month period.”
