Would be absolutely great if it happened! - close to public transport and brings the team back to Sale.
'It has come to our attention that the major shareholder in Sale Sharks, Simon Orange, who is an entrepreneur and businessman, is looking to build a new stadium at Crossford Bridge as a permanent home for the rugby team.
The land is owned by Trafford Council and is currently leased by the Crossford Bridge Management Association which comprises, Sale Harriers, Sale United and Old Alts. There will begin a consultation asking for input commencing on the 22nd of June until July the 13th. Please watch out for details of this if you care about the future of the club on this site.
Sale Harriers were formed over 100 years ago and built the track at Crossford Bridge in 1951. We have a long history at this address which could soon end if these proposals go ahead.
The consultation period has been timed so that many individuals who may have voiced strong opinions, such as teachers, parents etc, have other things on their minds such as a deadly pandemic sweeping the country.
We will have a huge fight on our hands if we want to prevent losing our place on this historic site and so I am imploring you to do whatever you can to prevent this development from happening. Those who live close will receive a letter in the next few days. Please do not ignore this letter. Let them know your feelings. A press statement will be made and leaflets will be distributed in due course. Thank you for your help.
