A new home for Gloucester City next season?

Gloucester City could be playing in their own stadium for the first time since 2007 next season.

The Tigers have been without a home since a flood ruined their Meadow Park stadium 12 years ago.

The National League South team currently share a stadium with Evesham United, but have submitted an application to rebuild their old stadium and hope it will be ready by as early as the start of next season.

In January, Gloucester submitted a revised planning application for a scaled down version of a new ground on the site of Meadow Park, smaller than the one that had already granted permission by Gloucester City Council, in a bid to return home quicker.

The cut off point for clubs wishing to play at a new ground in a following season is March 31.

The club announced the news on Twitter:

The club hopes to remain in the sixth tier of English football this season and boosted their hopes of staying up with a 2-1 win at St Albans City on Saturday.
