BRIDGWATER Town co-manager Dave Pearse believes that the proposed redevelopment of the football club's home of Fairfax Park could be "absolutely massive" for the town.

This week saw the club unveil plans for the stadium which would see a two-storey development incorporate a café/bar/restaurant area, state-of-the-art sports technology centre and executive boxes.

Speaking to the Mercury, Pearse said: “We’ve spoken about it [stadium redevelopment] for a while, but you wonder if it’s really going to happen.

“Adam [Murry, the club's new chief executive] is a different type of businessman - he has the contacts and knows how to get the funding.

“Everyone is buzzing and wants to be a part of it.

“It could be absolutely massive for Bridgwater, and we hope to emulate it on the pitch.”

There won't be any league games at Fairfax Park for a while, though, as this week also brought confirmation that the season was over for clubs at Steps 3-6 of the National League System.

Bridgwater play at Step 5 (the Western League Premier Division), but have not had any league games since December due to Covid-19.

The Western League has said that it will not be running any standalone tournament to end the season, but it does hope to conclude the Les Phillips Cup competition from the 2019/20 season (which has Bradford Town, Bridgwater, Hallen and Tavistock/Warminster Town in the semi-finals) before the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

The 2020/21 FA Vase competition - which Bridgwater are also still a part of - could also restart in the coming months.

Reacting to that news, Pearse said: “It [the termination of the league season] is disappointing but it was always going to happen.

“It’s a sensible decision - you don’t want to be playing three games a week [to catch up] when players have had a lot of time off.

“If we can start again in August, hopefully with fans back, we’ll go from there.

“There’s a chance the FA Vase may finish, though, and the Les Phillips Cup.

“If so, we’ll focus on getting as far as we can in both competitions, to finish on a high and take some momentum into next season.

“We’ll also be looking at what we need for next season, as the expectations will be high with everything that’s going on at the club."
