Highland Court ; Kentish Gazette Article

9 months ago By Martyn Sexton

Following today's article in the Kentish Gazette, City Chairman Tim Clark would like to add the additional information too.

Players/Parents/Supporters are asked to email their comments in support of the Highland Court Development to the Kentish Gazette at

"It is worth remembering the old club folded in 2001 after only 2 years ground sharing without a stadium. It’s something of a miracle that we have managed to keep the new club going in the same circumstances for 11 years now but it cannot be a viable existence indefinitely. Over those 11 years the City Council has looked at 23 sites and failed to find a solution. It is the football club that came up with the Hersden option and then more recently the Bridge option without any help from the City Council. We really do need and deserve a break and the full support of the Council on this proposal. Where else are we going to get a land and investment package from a developer worth £1 million because that is what Quinn Estates are giving us as part of the Highland Court proposal. It is time to do the right and honourable thing for your City Community Football Club and it is in the Council’s hands alone to now finally bring us home after 19 long years!"
