Manadon Hub

If you read the farm, The Manadon Hub was a Argyle training hub, far from it if you read on and Argyle have not put in any money building it.


Plans to transform an artificial football pitch into a new £2m outdoor recreation hub for the Manadon and Honicknowle communities is closer to getting the green light, say council chiefs.

Plymouth City Council said it is teaming up with the Argyle Community Trust to provide a new football, cricket and outdoor sports facility which they claim will be one of the best in the city.

Council bosses say it will increase the number of people taking part in physical activity at the site from 17,500 a year to 30,000.

The Manadon all-weather pitch was transferred to the Council from the Ministry of Defence in 2007 and has been operated by YMCA Plymouth since 2012.

It is used by football teams and for coaching but is in very poor condition and has no toilet or changing room facilities. It has also suffered from vandalism, antisocial behaviour and flytipping and the nearby grass football pitches are currently not used at all.

The trust was already involved in developing the scheme and agreed to step in as main delivery partner after the YMCA confirmed it was no longer in a position to lead the project.

It will take on the lease under a community asset transfer arrangement and take on responsibility for ongoing maintenance and operations at the new facility, which will include:

• an FA-standard 3G playing pitch, together with new floodlights and security fencing

• new junior grass football pitches

• a new artificial cricket wicket and eight grass wickets

• a new four changing room complex, with a space for training, meetings and social get-togethers (built to Football Foundation and England and Wales Cricket Board guidelines)

• improvements to the car park and entrance to the site.

Council leader and local ward councillor Ian Bowyer said: “We’re delighted to be working alongside the Argyle Community Trust and other partners to create what will be Plymouth’s first cricket and football development hub.

“This will significantly improve one of the priority sites in our Playing Pitch Plan and make a big difference to clubs, groups and the local community.

“The scheme will provide the high-quality facility residents deserve, as well as a much-needed indoor space for meetings and social activities.

“It will also mean there’s a new ground for the Plymouth Civil Service Cricket Club, which currently has to play outside the city boundary.

“By transferring the facility to the trust as a community asset we can ensure local people have a say in its running but also remove the costs of ongoing maintenance from council taxpayers.”

Argyle Chief Executive Martyn Starnes said: “We have been presented with a wonderful opportunity to participate in a major development and it will allow us to deliver a new level of services to the people of Plymouth, and the surrounding areas.

“The leadership of Argyle Community Trust with Mark Lovell and his colleagues has been the catalyst.

“The growth of our Trust began before I came to the club and it has continued exponentially in recent years.

“It is a wonderfully diverse service we provide through the Trust and we consider it to be the jewel in the crown of Plymouth Argyle.

“The Trust enables us to reach across Devon and Cornwall, providing services and programmes to a huge range of people.”

David Tall, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Argyle Community Trust, added: “This is a hugely significant step forward for Argyle Community Trust and a proud day for everyone involved.

“There has been a tremendous amount of hard work behind the scenes to reach this stage and I pay tribute to Trust Manager Mark Lovell, and his team, for helping make this project a reality for the people of Plymouth.”

The Manadon and Honicknowle Sports Centre project will create employment, apprenticeship and volunteering opportunities as well as access to training, development and life skills courses for young people.

The total cost of the scheme is £2,086,066 – made up of £941,400 from the Football Foundation, £350,000 from Sport England and £150,000 from England and Wales Cricket Board, supported by Council funding of £644,666 – mainly comprising developer contributions.

My favourite bit of the farm thread is where muppet Clive Toms comes out with this gem

"If Manadon develops as hoped, the logical next step would be to buy out Parkway and incorporate their pitch into the development."

A few minor concerns here
1. Multi ownership is against FA rules
2. Do Parkway get liquidated or just told to feck off?
3. Does the owner of Parkway get a say in any of this?
4. Whose money will be used to 'buy out Parkway' Brents or the 50% that you still think the club is gettign from the uplift in HHP land

The first steps in Brent and Hallett's next 10 year land grab.You would have thought PCC would have learned their lesson re leases with Sutton Harbour at Derriford airport, but then these days, you have to start asking the previously unthinkable, just what corrupt undercurrents are going on. If there's a bit of green space going begging for nothing in the city, you can bet Brent and Hallett won't be far away. And all for the benefit of the community health. Of course, they've spent their whole lives working in the field. As Tudor Evans  once said of Brent when discussing the future of the Civic centre and pavillions,  Plymouth is so lucky to have someone with the business pedigree of Brent.

Over the last couple of years, Toms has become the main rival to Newell for PAFC snapping poodle of the year. They might have to go head to head at some stage if positions are cut. Maybe it's something about recent retirees, fresh out of 40 year bondage.

So PAFC haven't actually put anything in - I hope they're being charged, and that the income is going to the various youth enterprises that the scheme was designed for.

The community trust is a wierd one as well you keep hearing about how much work they are doing across the south west yet I know a few people with young football playing kids one of them a real prospect. We were talking footy and the community trust got raised and I asked if any of their lads had attended the courses, a huge no followed by mutterings about money grabbing bastards, the courses they were offered we're all pay to attend and quite pricey. Do they do any real charity work ie training our talented youth for feck all?
