AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell believes that the developments that are taking place around Dean Court at the moment will be completed in time for the new season.
Following the end of the successful League One campaign last season, the Cherries began work on extending the club shop and exploring the necessity for a new fourth stand on the south stand area of the Goldsands Stadium.
Work on the club shop is well underway and the new club store should be open for the first game of the season at home to Charlton, whilst the early preparation work for a new 2400 seater temporary south stand began earlier this month.
Mitchell told afcb.co.uk...
"Both developments are on schedule to be ready for the start of August and the home fixture against Charlton, I`m hoping the addition of the temporary stand will make the stadium more enclosed and more dynamic. Obviously it will stop the draft coming through too, but I just really hope it will make it feel more like an arena and a proper football ground...'
"...We wouldn`t want to give it (the south stand) to the away fans only to find ourselves at any disadvantage at all, so it would be for (Eddie Howe) to decide and work with us on the numbers we think we are going to get here, to try and juggle things best for everybody."
"The shop is also very exciting. We have a big trophy cabinet going in there so the boys will have to work hard to fill it up but we are going to make it quite a fun shop."
Don't forget to keep checking the RednBlack Shack for great online deals and help to raise money for the AFC Bournemouth Youth Team.
