Double Dose of Good News For Berko
Pitching In Southern Football League Division One Central club Berkhamsted received two pieces of good news this week.

Berko have signed a new forward in Jervon Campbell.

 

The 19-year-old joins from league rivals AFC Dunstable, where he moved to in August 2020 from Spartan South Midlands League Division Two side Pitstone & Ivinghoe.

 

He was previously on the books at Bovingdon, Hertford Town and Hemel Hempstead Town.

 

Meanwhile, there was more good news for the club off-the-field this week.

 

The Dacorum Local Plan 2020 to 2036 was issued in draft form for public consultation.

 

The good news for the club is that Broadwater, which includes the stadium, is not on the list of major housing developments.

 

Central government housing targets do mean there will be a significant loss of Green Belt land for housing in Dacorum.

 

Genuine sports people like to exercise in the countryside and will be disappointed to see much of it being concreted over in the draft plan.

 

The plan covers up to 2036, so the club hopes that when the plan becomes final, its landlords will allow the club a long lease. Doing so would enable access to Football Stadium Improvement Fund grants of 70% - even up to £150,000 of grants over a five-year period for clubs at Step 4 level.

 

The club`s current lease is too short for such grants. Nevertheless, they have completed an application for an extra 100-seater stand for the landlords to consider at their January meeting.

 

The club would finance most of the cost itself.
