Question

Hi Jerry,

Could you advise why the under 23 games are now taking place at Westons ground rather than Stoke Gifford (or even Ashton Gate)?  Theres a bit of a difference in travel times between the two.

Cheers.

Hi

We cannot play at SGS as its doesn’t meet the ground criteria for PDL games.  Basically the floodlights do not have enough luxe value, there isn’t sufficient changing room space and there isn’t enough undercover seating. 

Ashton Gate does not have the capacity to host our fixtures with the Football and Rugby and Women having games there. 14 more games on the pitch would be a huge strain on the groundsman and also detrimental to the playing surface.  As per PDL rules we do play 5 of our 14 home games at AG usually at the beginning and end of the season.

When the new training ground is built all our home U23 fixtures will be played there.
