SO LONG? New stadium plans could see Wealdstone FC leave Ruislip for new pastures

 Published on: 5th December 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

After 15 years of calling Ruislip their home, Wealdstone FC look set to be leaving the area in favour of a new site in Uxbridge.

Hillingdon Council has announced that they have identified an 18-acre plot of land on Freezeland Way as a suitable site for the club to progress with plans for a new 6,500-seater stadium, replacing their current home of Grosvenor Vale.

The Stones first moved into the Vale in 2008, following 17 years of homelessness after the demolition of their original Harrow home of Lower Mead.

The stadium had previously been home to Ruislip Manor FC from 1947 until their liquidation in 2007.

No solid plans have been put forward as of yet, with the club needing to find funding and go through several other procedures first.

However, Wealdstone are already looking to include a range of facilities alongside the stadium, such as a community hall, café, communal garden, play area and outside gym.

Club chairman Rory Fitzgerald said: “The new stadium is fantastic news not only for our fans and players, but the whole local community. As we progress, we will ensure that we optimise the benefits for local residents.”
