End in sight for Matlock FC makeover
Published: 19 August, 2010
DERBYSHIRE: After almost 10 years in the pipeline, an ambitious plan to give part of Matlock Town Football Club's Causeway Lane ground a major makeover is about to become a reality.
Local builders' merchant William Twigg, has given financial support to the club for a number of years. It supplied the steel for the tiered stand, which has designated seating for supporters with disabilities, at a heavily-discounted rate.
Sited on the Dene Fields side of the ground, it replaces a now-demolished wooden structure and buildings found to contain asbestos.
In recognition of Twigg's generosity and support over a long period, the stand is to be named 'The Twigg's Stand'.
The Bakewell Road plumbers' and builders' merchant, steel stockholders and fabricators is also making a financial contribution towards the cost of developing the new social centre and bar to meet the recreational, cultural and social needs of the wider community. The centre will be able to seat 150 people and cater for a range of social activities.
