AFC Fylde are delighted to announce that following a recent inspection, Fylde’s Kellamergh Park ground has been declared fit for the new National League (formerly known as The Conference).

Fylde have had to make some serious investment in bringing their ground up to standard which included new flood lights, crash barriers, toilet block and a new 250 seated stand.

All in all the total investment has been around £85,000 but Chairman David Haythornthwaite says “the news is well worth the investment. It’s no secret we want to play at a higher level and although our new ground will come on stream in March next year we had to plan for promotion this year.  With two games to go we still have a realistic chance of automatic promotion, if not we will be in the playoff lottery.  If we don’t go up we will have no regrets about the investment even though some of it will appear to some as wasted money.  As the old saying goes if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.

As part of the improvements Fylde’s ground now has an increased capacity of 3,180 with 520 seats which is a 40% increase on the previous capacity.
