Vanarama National League club Woking has announced that it is prepared to help out Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Division One neighbours Sheerwater through possibly allowing them to play home games at the Laithwaite’s Kingfield Stadium next season, although formal talks between the two clubs have yet to commence.
Sheerwater will be made homeless at the end of the season through the Sheerwater Redevelopment, which means that time is of the essence when finding a potential new home whilst their new ground is built at the Bishop David Brown School.
It would be a welcome bonus for The Sheers, currently poised for promotion to the CCL Premier Division and would end a lot of speculation and uncertainty over their future.
Cards` Director Geoff Chapple told Get Surrey recently that a deal to help The Sheers was not out of the question. However, he did have concerns about whether two teams sharing the same pitch would not do damage to the playing surface over the course of the 2018/19 season.
The Sheers have until March 31st in order to inform the FA of their concrete plans for the 2018/19 season, which may see The Sheers enter the Emirates FA Cup and Buildbase FA Vase contests for the first time ever.
Woking have also announced that they are in advanced talks with investors, and that good news is hopefully expected soon from club Directors Rosemary Johnson and David Taylor:
