AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Wellingborough Town FC regret to announce that they will likely vacate the Dog & Duck Stadium at the end of the 2016/17 playing season. This follows WTFC’s landlord, Mr Alper Ozdogan, invoking a clause in the Club’s lease which will force them to leave the site by 31st May 2017, hence also bringing to an end the ground share agreement with AFC R&D. Since the original issuing of this notice in May, WTFC have held talks with Mr Ozdogan, but unfortunately no significant progress has been made. Both AFC R&D and WTFC are especially disappointed with this given the hard work which has been put into upgrading facilities at the ground by volunteers from both Clubs over the last four years.

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are currently looking to secure an alternative ground share agreement within the local area, whilst Wellingborough Town FC feel that eviction from the Dog & Duck is almost certain to put an end to the Club’s 149 year existence.
