At the end of 2014 Badshot Lea FC was chosen as one of the winners of our Community Project initiative, which invited local groups, schools and charities with the opportunity to apply for a donation of free materials and the chance to benefit from our expertise.  

For the past 13 years the football club has been searching for a suitable piece of land to build a new stadium and, with planning permission now approved, we're delighted the build is now underway.

Situated on the former grounds of Farnham Rugby Club, The Westfield Lane Stadium project will create a permanent base for Badshot Lea FC.  The development will include a full refurbishment of the existing rundown clubhouse to bring it in line with FA regulations, the erection of floodlights, creation of spectator seating, three new irrigated pitches and a car park, as well as fencing and paths.   In the coming months we'll be advising on suitable drainage and groundworks solutions for the site and liaising with contractors to deliver appropriate materials.  The new ground is expected to be completed ready for the start of the 2018/19 football season.

In addition to the free materials on offer as part of our Community Project campaign, the club has also done their own fundraising and received grants so they can realise their dream. 

Mark Broad, Chairman at Badshot Lea FC, said:

"We're delighted that work is finally underway at our new ground and can't wait to see the transformation unfold.  This has been a project that has required a great deal of determination and effort.  We are thrilled that our patience is now paying off and our wait for a permanent ground is in its final phase. We would like to thank Rudridge, and everyone else who has been involved, with supporting us to achieve our aim of securing a suitable site and creating a home for Badshot Lea FC."

Paul Duke, Manager at our Farnham branch, added:

"This will be a wonderful new facility for the community and the Club.  We are pleased to be involved and look forward to supporting Badshot Lea FC to see the project through to fruition."
