Ilkley Rugby Club, a New Era

This week has seen the start of a new era at Ilkley Rugby Club. A new clubhouse is to be built, contractors have arrived on site, erected safety fencing and site cabins.

Over the period of the rebuild I will endevour to record  the demolition and reconstruction in photographs which will be uploaded to an album on my Ruggerpix website.

The club warn all whilst at the ground to please obey all the safety signs around the ground and not to enter the fenced off areas. Also there will be no car parking at the ground because of building work, some parking will be available on nearby roads or at the swimming pool opposite.

From what I understand demolition will not take place untill next week so there will not be many changes visible if you attend this Saturdays league game against old rivals Keighley. Lets hope it doesnt rain.
