At the end of the season, Ian drew up a list of work required to be done around the Abbey Stadium. There are different levels of priority and the list is added to by others at the club.
Some of the work is required before the engineers inspection is completed and the list below doesn't include the pitch renovation.
We have already completed some of the work and some additional jobs during the past few weeks.
Some will require specialist contractors or friends of the club to carry out
