Sturtridge Pavilion demolition now complete

Northampton Saints’ contractors have had a busy few weeks, and where the Sturtridge Pavilion once stood there is now a pile of rubble.

The demolition specialists have been slowly working their way through the site, removing the building piece by piece ahead of the building of the all-new Barwell Stand.

Over the next few days the rubble will be cleared and the site levelled in preparation for the next stage of the development. Next Monday will begin to see piles being driven into the ground as the foundation for the Barwell Stand’s framework, which in turn is planned to be erected in July.

"The contractors have been working very hard and the Sturtridge Pavilion has come down very quickly," said Saints chairman Tony Hewitt. "We are still very much on schedule and looking forward to the next stage of the development, which will see the foundations be laid for the framework of the Barwell Stand."

The club has also revealed the most up-to-date computer generated versions of what the new Barwell Stand will look like, including the confirmed positioning of the two new big screens at Franklin’s Gardens.

One will be in the corner next to the Saints Ticket Office, with the other in the corner where the Church’s Stand will join the Barwell Stand. Although both screens are at the same end of the stadium they have been angled so that every spectator will be able to see one of them, if not both.

The Barwell Stand has been very popular with supporters, and already over half the seats have been booked by Season Ticket Holders for the 2015/16 campaign.

Don’t miss out on being part of this exciting new era in the 135-year history of the Saints at Franklin’s Gardens – head to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/seasontickets for all the pricing information and downloadable booking forms!
