Falkirk yearn for stadium completion

Falkirk boss John Hughes is desperate for the club to complete their stadium and is calling on the Local Council for help. Work begins on a third stand at Westfield next month but Hughes has been frustrated at the lack of action in realising plans for a fourth stand.

And the Bairns boss believes more could be done by Falkirk Council, who are in partnership with the club in the company running the stadium.

He said: "We've started something great, we've got a beautiful big stadium, an icon for the next 100 years, like a mini-Hampden.

"Through Sandy, we're now a little bit fortunate that he's going to build the third stand.

"That's getting signed over on Saturday and, if you ask me, the next Saturday the other stand should be getting signed over as well. You can't sit back and rest on your laurels.

"There's land there to be developed. For me, whoever's in power in the council should go and develop it.

"I'm not just saying that because of Falkirk. I think every council should have a part to play in their hometown club."
