Spartan South Midlands League Division One club Baldock Town will play at Arlesey Town’s New Lamb Meadow stadium next season after agreeing an initial two-year groundshare with the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central club.
Baldock`s 4-0 victory over local rivals Codicote on April 15th in their final league match of the 2016/17 season brought to an end a two-year stint at Stotfold’s Roker Park ground.
They finished third on 92 points in SSML Division One this year, just one point behind Harpenden Town in the second promotion place following Harps’ 1-1 draw with Brimsdown on Saturday.
Baldock were denied promotion to the Spartan League in 2012 as their home ground, the Arena on Norton Road, was not suitable for SSML football.
They went up the following year after they had agreed a groundshare at Hitchin Town’s Top Field.
They then moved on to share SSML Premier Division side Stotfold’s ground in 2015 until the end of the current campaign.
Arlesey Town’s committee released a statement saying: “We hope this association will be beneficial to both clubs in the long-term and we ask the supporters of Arlesey to support this new venture and take our new house guests into our club and support them in the years to come whilst the first team are away”.
