Southend get new stadium go-ahead

Southend United

Southend United have received final planning permission for their new stadium at Fossetts Farm.

The Government has given the green light for the 22,000 seater facility to be built to the east of the town.

Blues chairman Ron Martin says building work will now commence and the club will move into their new home in 2010.

"One can never be sure with planning applications and therefore it is good to get the final approval," he told the club's website.
