Did they give up once the first sod of turf had been dug or are they still on the tea break?

You obviously didnt see the 40-50 odd 8 foot high steel posts that are sticking out of the ground.

They should stick a camera filming it all, then when finished play it at a high speed so you can see the full construction in about 1 minute.

I wouldnt advertise steel posts sticking out of an unguarded field, the gypos will have them weighed in quicker than they can peel a potatoe.

I hope there is some form of security, else the gypsies will have a field day.....they love taking metal etc to flog as scrap. putting one's faith in the police in runcorn isn't the best idea either.....they might furnish a crime number to claim on your insurance

perhaps time for a rota system for boardmembers to take turns in guarding the site, we will need security once the ground is completed and adequate insurance too

What club at our level, infact at any lvel up to the football league, have over night security guards?

Nobody can afford that. Im afraid vandalism is something that all clubs have to live with. It happened at Canal Street, it will happen at Linnets Stadium, we just need to hope that its not often and nothing serious.

The fence posts continue to be laid, ready for the fence itself to be mounted. Once the fence is in place, it means that the main site will become a proper compound, and then all the works will be contained within that.

We had word this morning that some fence posts had been dislodged overnight, so we've reported that to the Police, and hopefully they will be able to keep an eye open for us on their patrols.

The site does not become the clubs till its handed over.
Currently all aspects of the site are managed by the council, it is the council who is responsible for security and any costs.
