The new stadium will have its capacity increased to 11,000 that will also create a venue for concerts and conferences as well as provide new restaurant and leisure facilities. It will also provide up to 100,000 square feet of commercial space.

Chairman Peter Swann told the club website: "I am delighted to announce that we have submitted our exciting plans for the new stadium.

Glanford Park is not that old and has served us well, but it's essential that we develop new income streams to support the future development of the club and to improve facilities for fans and players alike."

Glanford Park stadium will be demolished and rebuilt stand-by-stand over the next few seasons which will enable the club to continue to play matches during the development.

New cantilever style stands will mean unrestricted views of the pitch and there will be improved seating and new eating and drinking facilities.

Subject to a planning decision, the club will begin construction of the new stadium in Autumn.

The East Stand (Clugston Stand) will be the first to be constructed to provide the commercial space required for health-related uses.

The club have also submitted a planning application for residential apartments on the Glanford Park site.
