The Brewery Field will be receiving a number of improvements ahead of the 2016/17 season, the club has revealed.
As well as the reopening of the Tyne Crescent entrance to the ground, a series of enhancements have also been arranged to take place over coming weeks, with greater works being proposed at a later date.
All seats in the main stand will be replaced and we have also upgraded our sprinkler and water supply system for use on the pitch.
In addition, we have again invested heavily in making further improvements to the playing surface itself.
All of the standard maintenance and painting will take place as usual before the start of the season, while more dramatic developments are in various stages of preparation.
We are aiming to make a full planning submission to Durham County Council by the end of June for major works to the stadium. The timeframe for approval is approximately 12 weeks and we will publish a full visual of ground improvements on our website once this has been submitted for fans to see.
The investment in The Brewery Field is coming at the same time as the club entering negotiations for a new 50 year agreement for use of the ground with the Council, which we hope to conclude soon.
Steven Lawson, Director of Match Day Operations, said: “The Board intends to make it even more enjoyable to be a Spennymoor Town supporter this season and exciting developments to The Brewery Field to improve the match day experience are at the heart of this.
“We want people to see a visit to our club as a great day out and our supporters to have pride at the quality of our facilities.
“It’s undoubtedly an exciting time at the start of a new chapter as we embark on life in a higher division and we feel that ground improvements are necessary to attract as many people as possible to soak in our match day atmosphere.
“We hope to sell more season tickets than ever this season and this is certainly a reason for people to buy one.”
More news will be released on further ground developments this pre-season.
