'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Planning Application Approved

In a weekend whereby I was otherwise occupied, it nearly escaped my attention that planning approval has been granted to increase the capacity of Craven Cottage to 30,000.

The local council, backed by the residents, have approved plans to refurbish the Riverside Stand.

Plans have also been approved to open up the riverside walk from Putney to Hammersmith, a first in recent history.

Whilst the former will bring in that little extra revenue that the club needs to compete at the highest level, the latter will give many Fulham supporters the perfect opportunity for a rather picturesque walk home along the banks of the River Thames.

Speaking about the expansion plans, our Chief Executive, Alistair Mackintosh has remarked to the media,

"It is vital that the club is given every opportunity to develop the facilities available."

"This is extremely exciting news and we are all delighted with this outcome."

"I am confident that an increase capacity and major improvements to the facilities can help us deliver the chairman`s vision of long term growth and self sustainability for this football club."

Onwards and upwards as they say!
