Semi-Pro Club Gloucester City To Continue Sharing Whaddon Road Stadium

English semi-pro club Gloucester City "will continue to share Cheltenham Town's Whaddon Road stadium next season," according to the BBC. The Blue Square Bet North club's Meadow Park ground "was destroyed by flood" in '07. The Tigers were paying £40,000 ($60,600) a year for the groundshare, and "were recently threatened with eviction after failing to meet payments." The debts have since been cleared, but the Robins have confirmed the new agreement has been amended in the light of their difficulties to "further protect Cheltenham". Gloucester have been "struggling with financial problems" and earlier this month issued an appeal for £25,000 ($37,900) in order to stay afloat until the end of the season (BBC, 3/28).
