In October 2019, certain promises were made to the supporters by the new regime at the club.
Stage one was to completely eradicate the significant debts the club had accumulated and create an infrastructure with heavy community involvement.
The second phase was to completely refurbish the stadium and create an atmosphere to be proud of and one that would also help attract a younger generation to the NMG.
Both phase one and two were completed despite working through an unprecedented pandemic, with no revenue being generated by the club or the investors’ own businesses.
Phase three is of course the 4G FIFA Pro playing surface. The completion of this phase will allow the club to compete at a much higher level whilst maintaining a sustainable budget, protecting the club’s future forever.
The facility will also create a fantastic all weather playing surface for all our junior, academy and ladies teams, along with providing a key venue for our local community in becoming a full-time operation, open seven days a week.
We are now excited to announce that the commencement date of phase three is confirmed as May 24 and the installation will be completed in time for the new 2021/22 season.
Everyone at the club would like to thank Dave and Andrew for their considerable and continued investment in the club and the community and for honouring their promises despite some really testing times behind us and potentially still ahead.
Phase four, which is planned for the spring of 2022 or sooner, is currently at the planning stage with Erewash Borough Council and no delays are expected with this.
This phase is for a new stand with LED scoreboard, a new two-storey club shop, offices and a boardroom, along with 15 industrial units and further alterations and improvements to the bar and function rooms.
We would like to thank you for your continued support and to assure you all that the investment is not limited to the facilities alone.
Martin Carruthers, Kelvin Wilson and Wayne Hallcro will be given excellent levels of support and finance to ensure that success and winning football matches will always remain our priority.
We look forward to seeing you all soon.
