Radcliffe Borough new stand to be funded by Accrington business

Radcliffe Borough
LOCAL business Robert Nicholas Steel has demonstrated their support to Radcliffe Borough after the construction of the new away stand.
The newly built stand offers protection for supporters against the often very cold and wet weather in Radcliffe, and is proudly displayed just to the right of the new turnstiles.
The club have also received a large amount of support following the alleged arson attack on their stadium last week.
Money, messages of support and offers of help have flooded into the Greater Manchester side, who play their football in the eighth division of football in the Northern Premier League Division One.

Accrington-based business ‘Robert Nicholas For Steel’ have always held a strong passion for helping the local football community, and this was on display once more this season after the founder of the company, Bill Rhind, held a meeting with Radcliffe Borough President Bernard Manning Jr.

Mr Rhind offered to build a new stand at Taurus Park for free, which offers protection for supporters against the typical Radcliffe weather, and is displayed to the right of the ground’s new turnstiles.

With all the new developments which have taken place over the course of the summer and throughout the season so far, Mr Rhind was naturally disappointed to hear news of the fire which destroyed the ground’s main stand.

He said: “This company has always tried to do its best to help out the local communities in the area and hearing news of the fire was terrible.

“Following conversations with Bernard, I decided to get involved with the club as they needed assistance with the stand in order to comply with league restrictions.

“I am very pleased with the final outcome, I have received good feedback from everyone at the club when I attended last week’s game against West Didsbury & Chorlton.

“Considering the fire occurred on Sunday night, the club did brilliantly to get the game on just two days later. It’s important the local community now show their support for their local club as we intend to do so ourselves going forward.”

Radcliffe Borough continue their league campaign at home again this Saturday when they host Tadcaster Albion at 15:00.
