[20 JAN 1999] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Grade A For Boro's Manor Park

Nuneaton Borough chairman Phil Clayton has described the "huge weight off his shoulders" after the club's stadium was inspected by Vauxhall Conference officials.

The visit was to determine whether Boro's Manor Park ground was fit to host Conference games in the event of the club's promotion - and it passed with flying colours.

This news comes as a huge boost to Clayton whose side are a staggering 19 points clear at the top of the Dr Marten Premier Division, and he believes it is great news for the club in general.

He said:

"Manor Park has been given a grade "A" rating to Conference standards, and this includes everything from our car parks and toilets to the snack bars.

"This is something which is now there for good provided we do not let standards slip, which we have absolutely no intention of doing.

"We have done an awful lot of work in the last few years to make sure that Boro are not hindered by the ground, including building new toilets, concreting the terraces and building a wall around the ground.

"This decision has made it all worthwhile and we are tremendously happy."

The club can now turn their attentions to the playing side as they attempt to seal the Dr Martens Premier Division title and complete their passage to the Vauxhall Conference.

However despite their huge points lead and outstanding form chairman Clayton is stressing that there is still a long way to go. He said:

"We are not presuming anything, we would not dream of it.

"We are still looking to strengthen the squad for the final push as injuries and illnesses towards the end of a campaign can make all the difference.

"The opportunity is certainly there and it is in our hands now. It will be great news for the local people if we make it and hopefully we will go even better and get into the football league."
