Newly-promoted Boston United apply to erect a new TV gantry at the Jakemans Community Stadium in Wyberton





A football club want to erect a new TV gantry at their stadium.

Newly-promoted Boston United have applied to site the gantry on the East Stand of the Jakemans Community Stadium in Wyberton.

The Pilgrims - who won promotion to the National League in May via the National League North play-offs - believe the switch would enhance their matchday coverage.

And with TNT Sports regularly screening matches from the club’s new division, it is believed this new construction could also help facilitate any potential live coverage.

At present footage is recorded from the West Stand, the ground’s main stand and seating area, but a move to the opposite side would provide a more eyecatching backdrop for viewers.

Fans in the UK can also live stream all National League contests which are not screened during the Saturday afternoon blackout, while highlights packages are also uploaded to YouTube from home games.

United were recently awarded their share of a £6 million Governemnt Levelling Up cash injection to complete work on their South Stand and sports hall.

The TV gantry application was made to Boston Borough Council by Chestnut Homes, whose owner David Newton is also the club’s chairman.
