Temporary suspension of work at Southampton FC's Staplewood training ground in Marchwood

Daily Echo: Staplewood, before redevelopment began Staplewood, before redevelopment began

MYSTERY surrounds the sudden halt of work at Saints' training ground.

The Staplewood complex has been undergoing a multi-million pound renovation scheme in recent months, after planning approval for a major overhaul was granted earlier this year.

However, it was reported today that work has temporarily stopped due to an issue between the club and the contractors, construction company Leadbitter.

As yet, there is no confirmation of the reason for the delay, or how quickly work will resume.

The first plans for the redevelopment of Staplewood were revealed back in 2009 to form part of the club’s 125th anniversary season, in 2010/11.

However, Saints ditched those proposals and submitted a new “bigger and better” scheme in late 2010, which was approved by New Forest District Council.

The ground work has already been completed, with what the club described as “phase two” of the project beginning earlier this year.

The scheme will see a new football development and support centre constructed at Staplewood.

It will include a medical centre, players’ lounge and offices for coaching and administrative staff, as well as other facilities.

The pitches and stands are also due to be upgraded. The existing buildings have been demolished, with only the indoor pitch, known as 'the dome' remaining as part of the redeveloped facility.

Saints have said previously that the work is set to be completed in June 2013.

Probably a very good reason for it and more along the lines of the contractor slacking or behind schedule and renegotiating contractors rates. Lets hope so anyway!

Why does the story not contain the words "Leadbitter and SFC have refused to comment on the matter instead of merely saying "As yet, there is no confirmation of the reason for the delay, or how quickly work will resume."

I guess it means no one has asked????

It's all becoming clear now.

Some time ago, someone on here said that Tebourba is in fact Thomasupton and Montecristosaint's love child and, by a series of unfortunate events, THAT is why NC has stopped the work in Marchwood. The reason being so that the brain which is Tebourba can be consulted about any future work.

Of course, if Jose and Kelv had kept their mouths shut and not blabbed about the above while warming up yesterday morning, it wouldn't have reached Nigel's ear, he wouldn't have mentioned it to NC and NC wouldn't have stopped the work in order to consult Tebourba.

My inside sources tell me that Jose was overheard saying to Kelv that he had been taking a coffee with Guly at the weekend when Guly said that Fox had been reading these posts and had found out about Tebourba heritage.

So, while Kelv and Jose are partly to blame, it's clearly Fox and Guly who are most at fault AGAIN!!!

However, it's all so easy to lay the blame at certain players' feet when, in fact, it's US on here who are really to blame for having encouraged the idea that Thomasupton and Montecristo could together produce the genius that IS Tebourba.

Hang your heads in shame, I certainly am.

Leadbitter are the contractors building the new cutting edge 'Brewery Square' development in Dorchester. It was meant to be finished in time for the Olympic Sailing and there was to be two hotels in the development. Guess what...........

News just in............. A UFO was seen there last night, it kept 1 Saints fan and rejected 392 Pompey fans, work can not resume until they return the Saints fan, the Pompey fans were last seen wondering the ground and asking what to do as they are clueless and penny-less.

Only 99% ? You are spot on. This will be a straightforward dispute with a builder. It happens. A lot. It will be sorted, either they will finish the work or someone else will.

Building is highly detailed and skilled work, requiring craftsmen and hard working professionals, all of which are reasons that builders shouldn't be allowed to do it.

NC will sort it, there will be no press announcement, just a quick resolution, work will restart and the bodies of certain building executives will be found hanging under the Itchen Bridge.

I heard from a very good source that the builders were from Manchester and they were demanding an extra 10 days on top of the 90 days allocated. Apparently - and this is the absolute truth because I have seen the contract - the contract did not allow for delays resulting from injured builders and having to substitute them for other builders.
