Gate rename their ground
Sun 8th January 2017 | Squires Gate | By Mark Ashmore
Squires Gate have announced the renaming of their School Road ground to 'The Brian Addison Stadium', in honour of club stalwart Brian 'Taddy' Addison.
Many will know of the overwhelming contribution Brian has made over the 60 odd years he's been at the club, fulfilling every role imaginable. It's fair to say Squires Gate simply wouldn't exist without Brian Addison.
Brian is currently fulfilling the role of groundsman at the club which, like all his previous roles, he takes the upmost care and pride in. This is evident in the quality of the award winning surface, which is certainly the best in the area and one of the best in the league.
The ground at School Road will be known as 'The Brian Addison Stadium' for at least the next year, and the club would like to thank The Royal British Legion for their support over the last two years.
Gate Chairman Stuart Hopwood said: "This is just a small gesture for someone who means and has done so much for this club. Brian is why many of us came and are still here, and his love for the game and club is infectious."
Brian is pictured at the entrance to the ground that now bears his name, prior to the match against Cammell Laird 1907.
