I've been mulling this over all morning, and I'm still not sure what to think. <p>Unfortunately it now appears that we are unable to bring New Lodge up to Conference standard.<p>Given the premium there is on land in Billericay there is no option to move within the town.<p>The choice therefore is do we stay at New Lodge, accepting that we can go no further, or do we move out of Billericay into a new, purpose built, stadium that has the potential to grow as and when we move up the pyrmaid. <p>I hate the idea of leaving Billericay but I don't want to see us stagnate and give up hope of advancing. I dunno but 1 thing is for sure, things will never be the same again....

Are we talking about using the athletics stadium in Gloucester park or somewhere completely different.

A totally new stadium - no running track (thank goodness!). It will be a totally new development on a piece of pristine land.

The way I see it is if canvey can get their manky ground up to conference code then so can we. However if it isn't possible and we're gonna get a phat new ground by goin' to basildon then who can be against that! don't get me wrong i don't want 'ricay movin' to basildon but we can't stand in the way of progress.

The problem with the conference gradings is that they are continually getting harder to achieve - that is why Canvey were granted the grading last season, then this season were turned down and had to do further work to get back up to the standard.<p>I don't think anybody wants to move to Basildon but it does look as though we've got no choice.
