St. Helens Rugby League Club has announced its plans to move into a new 18,000 capacity stadium on the former United Glass (UG) site in the town centre.

A joint planning application has been put forward by the club, St Helens Council, retail giant Tesco and housebuilder Taylor Woodrow and spearheaded by landowner and developer, Langtree Group.

If given the go ahead, the club is hoping to play its first game at the new venue in 2010.

The scheme will see the currently derelict 46-acre UG site become a halo-shaped 18,000 capacity stadium, with a mix of seating and standing, for St Helens Rugby League Club.

The plans also include a Tesco Extra retail unit.

As part of a separate plan, a high quality residential area built by Taylor Woodrow, will replace Knowsley Road, which has been Saints’ home for 116 years.

Both proposals are subject to planning permission, and need your support if they are to succeed.

Eamonn McManus, St. Helens chair, said: "The proposal will deliver a stadium worthy of the best team and the best supporters in world club rugby of either code.

“It will give an enormous boost to the Club and also to the town and people of St Helens alike. The stadium will provide top class facilities for both fans and sponsors and is designed to retain the special and intense atmosphere historically associated with top class rugby league games.

“In addition, it will allow the Club to continue to attract world class rugby league players to the Saints as well as enabling us to expand our community and youth development activities within the town.”
