A series of productive weekly meetings between the council and ATFC have resulted in the club being set to return to hosting fixtures at Sheepy Road for the remainder of the season.

The Leader of the Council Councillor David Wright has commented that, “I am pleased that the Council have been able to assist the Club in being able to use the ground at Sheepy Road again. The Club has worked hard to be able to reopen and welcome back their players and fans to their home ground.”

Club Chairman of ATFC Jamie Bursnell​​​​ says, “The work does not stop here, the team will be working hard over the coming months to ensure that all the new systems and procedures are fully incorporated into the running of the football club.”

The next fixtures to be played at the ground include an under 18’s tie against Rushall on Thursday 8th February and a 1st team game against Whitchurch Alport on Saturday 10th February.
