Delay over Ebbsfleet stadium work

eNewsletter

Kent Online report that work to demolish the Plough End at Stonebridge Road may not start until the end of the season.

Ebbsfleet fans who sit and stand in that part of the ground were originally due to be evacuated last summer so work could begin on the construction of a new stand and hotel.

But vice-chairman Dean Pooley has revealed the old red roof now won’t be pulled down this side of Christmas.

He said: “Supporters won’t see changes for a few months. We’ll have about three months’ worth of design team meetings and preliminary work.

“There’s so much that goes into it, like with the new main stand. There was so much more going on behind the scenes before even a shovel went in the ground.”
