Summer Work at Sunderland LGV Park

Submitted by Colin Wilson on Friday, 2 July 2021

Thanks to gaining some excellent grant aid this summer, from the FA, Football Foundation and Sunderland City Council, plus support from fans and friends of the club, Sunderland RCA have been able to progress a number of important projects at our Sunderland LGV Park ground over the past few months, with a total cost of £31,000.

Many, many thanks to our benefactors, which as well as the organisations named above and many of our regular friends and supporters, have included former City Councillor Paula Hunt, Orange Box Self Storage Ltd, Ken Stenger at Longden, Walker and Renney solicitors, Kitchen Magic, and a number of others.

The work completed has included our main stand, named after the man who built it, the always remembered Ray Baines, being shot blasted and repainted. This work was long overdue and as a result the stand is now looking good and, more importantly, is safe and secure for a good few more years. And has a lot fewer holes to let the rain in!
