BUNGAY Town Football Club is looking to add further to its Maltings Meadow facilities in the coming year, the annual meeting heard.

Chairman Jon Fuller said 2008-09 was the first season for some time that there had been no major structural changes at the Ditchingham site, but added: “I am hopeful that changes will be made in the next 12 months as we are continuing to chase funding to replace the training ground with extra land adjoining our clubhouse.
