The club is aware that a petition has been started by a group called the Pickford Foundation focusing on Grays Athletic’s desire to move back to the town.
Whilst we appreciate the support of Pickford and other external organisations, as well as understanding people’s rights to sign any petition, the club have not been contacted or consulted by Pickford in respect of sanctioning or supporting any petition. However, we would certainly be happy to speak to them to see how they could support us going forward.
The club will not be setting up any official petition in the short term as we wish to focus on important meetings with the council in January to discuss how Grays Athletic can feature in the Local Plan, Active Play Strategy and Local Football Facilities Plan.
The club would like to thank everyone that has supported and raised funds for the #BringGraysAthHome campaign, it certainly has significantly raised awareness in Grays and the wider football community which is very much appreciated.
