Wirral a Bastion for Saints

Wirral a Bastion for Saints

The plans for the new Saints ground have been passed unanimously
tonight by St. Helen's Planning Committee. There has in recent days
been a war waged between Saints and Morrisons over the proposals.
Morrisons are expected to continue their delays and object to the
proposal on the grounds that there are plans to include a new Tesco
store on the same site as part of the development.

It has been highlighted today that by double standards Morrisons are
trying to build a new Superstore on the front at New Brighton in
Wirral.  They have submitted plans to build on land what is classed as
land for leisure. Morrisons want a *** built above the store there
is also a cinema to be built at the side.

Anyone can oppose the New Brighton scheme, you don't have to live or
work there. Saints fans have been objecting on the grounds that
Morrisons are delaying our stadium, so we can delay or scupper their
plans for Wirral.

Go on to the Wirral council site and enter an opposition, say it will
totally spoil your New Brighton holidays. Or ring Wirral council, the
planning number is 20076508

If you don't get  planning permission I presume you won't get a
franchise. I can't see the RL going back on their rules just to suit
one club, can you?

If planning permission isn't granted, then maybe Saints might have to
play somewhere else, like outside of St. Helens. In truth can you
really see the RL telling a club like St. Helens you cannot be in the
league, franchise or no franchise. On Boots & All, Saints were given a
score of 8 out of 10 for franchise criteria based on playing at KR.

Well they're not biased are they? (Nor am I BTW)

I would reckon that Saints would score 7 at best.

Ground -1

Crowds -1

Proximity to other clubs -1
