Taunton Rugby Club have a new approved stand at Veritas Park


TAUNTON Rugby Football Club have announced that they have been granted planning permission to erect a new 100-seater stand at Veritas Park.

The club have since placed an order for the new stand with Stadium Solutions Ltd Brighton.

A spokesperson for the rugby club said: “With the Titans beginning their National One journey last season and doing well in their first season, this new stand has seemed like an important way to continue the development of Taunton RFC.

With bigger crowds expected for the new season, it will give more people the opportunity to watch the game from the comfort of a seat.”

This project was managed by long-time TRFC supporter Steve Collard, who also very kindly funded the construction through his company ‘Commsplus Equipment Finance’, aided by a generous donation from an anonymous supporter.

Taunton Fabrications were also heavily involved in the project by dismantling the old film tower and stand.

EA Construction (SW) Ltd of Wells will prepare the earthworks for the new stand, including trenching for the cables.

In addition to this, T&C Electrical Contractors Ltd and Bytes-Digital Ltd will supply the electrical cable and the fiber optic cable respectively, including the final connections.

The club said the modular design of the new stand will allow it to add more seating in future years as attendance continues to increase on match days.

This whole project shows further ambition for Taunton RFC and shows that the club continues to grow and move forward.

“We hope this stand will be in place for our first league game on September 1 when we play Plymouth Albion here at Veritas Park,” the club added.

“TRFC would like to warmly thank everyone involved in this project.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone who made it possible to join us for a game day and a well deserved drink during the 2022/23 season.”
