New facilities will provide Runwell Sports with a platform for success

AMBITIOUS ProKit UK Essex Olympian League outfit, Runwell Sports, have every reason to be optimistic for the future following news that the development of their St Lukes Park ground is set to get underway.

Having received the full backing from Chelmsford council building work is set to start on a new clubhouse and changing rooms, while a 5g training area will also be installed – a project likely to extend to a full-sized artificial surface at a later date.

Sports currently compete in Division One of the Olympian League. However, with aspirations on the pitch to match those off it, the club certainly believes they are capable of playing at a higher level in the non-league pyramid.

“The brand new changing rooms and clubhouse will put our facilities amongst the best available,” Chairman, Jason Emery, told Yellow Sport.

“The club has had a small team working extremely hard to make the new development happen over several years. Keith Peckover and Mark Montgomery have been instrumental in making the idea become reality – setting the club on an exciting pathway towards the future.

“The football ground will undoubtedly be a focal point for the area as well as providing first-class facilities for the community as a whole throughout the year.”

This news comes shortly after the appointment of manager, Jason Plom, and a new backroom team of coaches and medical assistants.

“Bringing in new management set up to lay the foundations and beyond for our club to progress higher through the football pyramid system,” Emery added.

“It’s important to realise that our plans are not a sprint to the line. We remain a club that will not fail in its ambitions – we will ensure a position of strength throughout.

“Our youth, ladies and veterans sections are looking really strong. We particularly want our youngsters to be the beneficiaries of what we are building. When you have a long term plan, it’s important we get it spot-on so they are able to profit from the end product. We are in a position to be optimistic and look forward to witnessing what the next few seasons provide.”
