Mousehole AFC – the most westerly football club in the English national league system – has applied to radically update their ground at Trungle Parc at Paul to ensure the club doesn’t have to move to a new site. 

The proposed development includes the construction of a new covered stand, which will provide 149 seats, one of which will be a reduced mobility seat, on the east side of the stadium. The new stand would replace two dugouts. 

A new referees facilities and a medical room, adjacent to the existing stand on the west side of the stadium, will also be construction.

There will also be a review and revision of existing changing rooms, extension of the roof of the existing stand on the west side of the stadium and modification of the existing clubhouse in order to provide a hospitality suite. 

The proposed development would improve club facilities which are required by the FA. 

The work would prevent the need for the club to find another ground should it “progress to higher tiers of the football pyramid”. 

A statement says: “The proposed development seeks to improve the current situation for visitors to the club (players, spectators and caravan/camping guests), provide the club with facilities which will be necessary to meet expectations for football grounds in higher divisions which the club aims to be promoted to, along with allowing for more spectators, which will be necessary to accommodate the increased demand resulting from the club’s recent success.”
