A football club announced plans for a new 6,000 capacity stadium.

St Albans City released a proposal in April to build a new home in Noke Lane, between Chiswell Green and Bricket Wood. The scheme was unveiled by Saints co-owners Lawrence Levy and John McGowan.

St Albans City FC has submitted plans for a new stadium in Noke Lane.

The Saints, who are vying for promotion in the National League South, the sixth tier of English football, currently play at the 3,700 capacity Clarence Park near St Albans City station.

The club has ambitions to play in the football league but its current site in Clarence Park does not allow the club to develop.

Mr Levy and McGowan, alongside stadium manager Leigh Page, made a presentation to the St Albans District Chamber of Commerce, as part of a larger community development which could see a news village with some 900 homes built.

The new stadium will include an academy, banquet facilities, and a restaurant and bar. Mr McGowan said: “This is an incredible opportunity not only for the club but the whole community.”
