In September last year Cheadle SMU was delighted to be awarded almost £70,000 to revamp the former youth club site on Holt Lane Kingsley.

Since that time the club have worked hard to not only meet the terms of the grant but more so the terms of the trust deed covering the site as well as  current charity law.

A short extension to the timescales applied by Sport England was obtained but that was seen as very unlikely to be met based on the advice of the club’s solicitor and the resources within the club available to deliver the project.

At a club meeting on Monday 14th March the current position was discussed at length and a unanimous decision of those voting was made to withdraw from the project.

Accordingly the club has informed Sport England and the Trustees of the site of the decision. We are extremely disappointed that the project has had to come to an end and we wish the Trustees and their advisors all good wishes in their endeavours to resolve the current situation at the site.

The club do not at time intend to comment further in this matter
