Supporters of Woodford Town Football Club have been left frustrated by the delay in moving into their new ground on Ashton Playing Fields.

“It is disheartening, but it will be worth the wait to see a first-class athletic and football stadium developed on the site off Chigwell Road,” said a spokesperson for the club, which continues to share a ground with Harlow FC. “The move has passed the planning stage, but there is little sign of progress at the site despite extensive liaison between those involved… It will be hard to galvanise the local support until we return home.”

Woodford Town FC currently holds a mid-table position in the Essex Senior League and have built up a very ‘noisy and inclusive’ following despite being based a considerable distance outside the area.
