Ryhope CW have doubled the seating capacity at Ryhope Recreation Park to 100 to meet Northern League Division One’s ground regulation rules.

The Football Association’s Ground Grading rules meant that their original seating capacity had to be doubled due to promotion from Division Two last season.

Chairman Darren Norton said: “It’s the final piece of the jigsaw in terms of what we set out to do to make the ground and the club to a standard of an established Northern League club.”
