Plans for the new stand are expected to be handed to the town council shortly

Oldham are poised to submit proposals for a new 3,000-seat stand at Boundary Park that could house a gym, conference and banqueting suite and a mini-supermarket.

Chairman Simon Corney announced the club's plans earlier this month and it is expected the paperwork will be handed to the town council shortly.

"It'll be one-tier, about 3,000 seats and it will be three storeys high," Corney told the Manchester Evening News.

"But it's not about the capacity, it's about what we can put in there to drive revenue. There will be a gym, a conference and banqueting centre, a mini-supermarket and some retail outlets.

"We'll see what they are once we have submitted the application and approached tenants."

Corney said at this stage there were no outside parties willing to invest in the project, adding: "It's a slight worry. But I have earmarked some money and we will get it built. It won't be difficult to find investors once we have tenants in place and if we have to do it out of capital, we have to do it out of capital."
