Club Reaction To Nene Park News

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are extremely saddened at the recent news of the planned demolition of Nene Park.

The stadium holds many great memories for everyone connected with the Club; memories which cannot be erased by its demolition.

However, AFC Rushden & Diamonds has proved since its formation that it is the supporters, members and volunteers who are the heart and soul of our Club, not the ground in which the team plays.

Since 2011, we have been working constantly to find a new home for AFC Rushden & Diamonds, and we will continue to do so. Recently, we have been in discussions with East Northamptonshire District Council and are working in conjunction with them to find a new permanent home in the Rushden, Higham and Irthlingborough area for AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

With ENDC’s help, we hope to identify a new site upon which a new, sustainable home for the Club can be built, to allow AFC Rushden & Diamonds to continue to create great football memories for years to come.
