    Not sure if I’ve missed anything as i’m away but any news on the ground name?
    Back to GP or some kind of sponsorship deal naming rights?

    Get those Chinese guys up the road on board with some sponsorship, The British Steel Stadium would do for a few years if it pays well.

    Can’t rename the ground until the sand siro sponsorship ends, unless you want to buy the rights back off Swanny now.

    The Sands name disappeared this season, the former owner said at the start of the season, rather peevishly, that since the fans didn’t want the name he had cancelled it.

    If they need a government handout to secure jobs I doubt sponsorship is high on their list of priorities.

    I believe they need a handout to meet the zero carbon emissions Cass and start producing steel in a more ” green ” way. Who wouldn’t want a little help with that, it’s the governments baby and it ain’t cheap. Mind you, nowt in steel making is cheap but I’m sure they could still be persuaded to cough up a little sponsorship dough. Plus it’s a proper link to the town not some namby pamby hotel in Blackpool that no-one gives a flying f*** about

    Electric Arc Furnace would mean a lot of job losses, I think

    I guess that’s the march of progress although others will argue against anything green I guess, better to have some jobs then none but we can’t really change what happens in industry can we.

    Hilton did mention in that interview that he would be looking into sponsorship e.t.c so he’ll have a scout about and fix something up for stadium naming rights.

    British Steel would make sense. I can’t think of anything else locally.

    Wren kitchens are in better financial health than the steel works. Be a drop in the ocean with their marketing budget.

    The Borough of Glanford disappeared in the mid 90’s, name change is long overdue in my opinion. The Jack Brownsword Arena would get my vote.

    They can call it the Kitchen sponsored by Wren or the Furnace sponsored by British Steel so long as one of them coughs up an commits for a few years.

    The Kitchen would be quite Ironic given the issues with catering issues over the last 10 years.

    That’s a good idea, we could call it “The Nest”☺️

    Without sponsorship – JB stadium is great.
    With sponsorship they can, within reason, call it whatever they want.

    The Latin term for a Wren is Troglodytes Troglodytes.

    So “The Cave” may be more appropriate!

    It will never change from Glanford park in most fans eyes and it has that ring to it no matter who sponsors it. For me whoever it is put their name before Glanford park.

    Or with new blast furnace technology. “Direct Reduction “.
    (Actually that might not be a good idea).
