Maidenhead United grandstand taking shape

The new £320,000 grandstand is taking shape at Maidenhead United FC.

The new stand is expected to be open pre-season in July


Work started on stripping York Road's old south stand in March. It is being replaced with a 500 seater cantilever design, which includes a dedicated area for disabled fans.

The steel structure began being built on Wednesday, May 7.

The Magpies expect it to be ready for pre-season in July. It has been paid for through grants, sponsorships, private donations and £160,000 of funding from The Football Foundation.

Maidenhead United's first summer friendly will be against FC United of Manchester on Saturday, July 26.

FC United was set up in 2005 by disillusioned Manchester United fans who opposed American businessman Malcolm Glazer's takeover of the Old Trafford side.
