Monday 13th June 2022

MARGATE have been granted permission to install new changing rooms at Hartsdown Park.

The Isthmian League Premier Division club have announced that works to install new home and away changing rooms, male and female match officials changing rooms and a kit room are now set to begin at Hartsdown Park.

“The club is thankful to the Premier League, after securing partnership funding via its Premier League Stadium Fund,” said a club statement.

The new facilities will also include a new external path and retractable players tunnel to be installed on the west side of Hartsdown Park.

The club predict a five-month timeline before the new facilities will be fully functional.

Chairman Ricky Owen told the club website: “It has been a long road to reach this point. I want to thank the Premier League for their support on this project.

“I am fully aware how important this is to the club and our supporters - who have been waiting for the news. I sat down last year and said I hoped that these would be completed during the 2021/22 season, however, for various reasons it’s been held up. I am pleased we are now in a position to proceed.

“This is an important step in the whole development. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes involved in getting this over the line”.
