Chairman of Longridge Town Football Club Brian Parkinson is hoping to move a stand at the Mike Riding Ground

The club submitted a planning application to Preston Council earlier this year to relocate a stand to the other side of the pitch as well as extend their existing clubhouse facilities.

It had been documented that the club’s application has since been withdrawn but the council confirmed that was an administration error and the plan is still very much under consideration.

Town, who won the West Lancashire League Premier Division title this season for the first time in their history, have long-term ambitions of progressing to the North West Counties League.

A decision on the application is expected in the next two weeks.
