WALTHAM FOREST are returning to Wadham Lodge after over five years without their own home ground.
The Stags were forced out of Wadham Lodge in March 2008 and have since played home games at both Ilford’s Cricklefield Stadium and WItham Town’s Spa Road ground.
They have now signed an agreement with MatchDay Centres – the leaseholders of Wadham Lodge – securing their long-awaited return to the Borough of Waltham Forest.
A statement posted on the club’s website said: “It is at this stage the that the club would like to thank the time, patience and hard work of a number of people: Jason Maguire of MatchDay Centres for his continued efforts, Nick Robinson and the rest of the Isthmian League committee for sanctioning the move, and Turgut Esendagli and Tony Brazier, without whose work over the last four months, we would not have been able to field a side this season, let alone return to the borough.
“We would also like to thank Ilford FC and Witham Town FC, who helped us in our hour of need. Without the assistance of these two clubs (especially Ilford), the club would not have been able carry on.”
