CHAIRMAN Toby Macormac admits Warrington Town would have to leave Cantilever Park in order to reach the Football League.

The 2,500-capacity ground – on Loushers Lane on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal – has been the club’s home since 1956 and has had to be kept up to date in line with Yellows’ rise through the leagues.

With the team currently pushing for promotion to the National League North – two tiers below the Football League – their home would have to be upgraded further should they reach the next level.

Town would have to – among other things – install three more turnstiles and upgrade their floodlights by March 2020 in order to avoid being relegated back to the Evo-Stik Premier Division automatically.

Macormac says there is enough space within the ground’s confines to significantly upgrade but admits car parking is an ongoing issue that will need to be addressed.

He says the club would be able to enjoy life in the National League North “quite comfortably” there, but any moves to a higher league would have to prompt a look elsewhere.

“I think we can achieve a lot of our ambitions while staying at Cantilever Park,” he said.

“There is still a bit of available space in the ground and there’s quite a lot we can do within the perimeter fence. The biggest challenge about it is parking.

“With the available space we have, I think we could enjoy life quite comfortably in the National League North.

“If the National League did come knocking, we could probably sustain one season in that before we’d have to look somewhere different.”

The club did announce plans for a new stadium on the former Burtonwood air base site at Omega back in 2013, but the development never got off the ground before being abandoned.
