Does the weather stand in the way of construction work at Mill Farm … snow way!

Work ploughed on today through the frosty conditions and is on course to be all set ahead of the huge pre-season friendly that was announced this morning.

The club have agreed that Mill Farm will host Blackpool legend Brett Ormerod’s testimonial match on July 31st in association with the Blackpool Supporters Club. Click here for more details.

The impressive black cladding panelling on the front of the West Stand is well underway and is expected to be completed over the weekend. The panelling on the side elevations of the stand will begin early next week. Glazed screening on the front of the stand will also start next week.

The roof on the West Stand is now complete and just requires a touch up on the paintwork on the underside. 

The foundations for the South Stand have been completed but there is a little more groundwork to do before steelwork can start in a couple of weeks. Mechanical and electrical instillation continues alongside brick and block work.

The club will be hosting the second round of the popular stadium tours tomorrow morning ahead of the home match against Boston United.
