    Hi there Bury fans :-)

    Any chance I can get some extra signatures for my club to acquire a new stadium? Only takes a few minutes, we would really appreciate your help.

    The link is at the very bottom of the screen.

    We have been trying for the last 20 years, but setbacks due to location, nimby's, and funding have set us back.

    This is an official petition made by Grimsby Town Football Club over the last few months, which will be handed into our local council for planning permission.

    Circa 500 permanent jobs, and 500 temporary construction jobs. For the long term survivability of the club, not only will it help the club, it will help with community projects in Education and Health.

    Thank you.

    Survivability? I think the word is probably 'survival'. Anyway I've signed your petition although I'm a bit shocked that you've only got 5k signatures so far. That's pretty poor.
