The club says it is working to “minimise the impact” as the project reaches its conclusion

The firm responsible for building most of Ebbsfleet United’s £5m main stand has ceased trading with the project yet to be completed.

The development, which can accommodate 1,100 fans at Stonebridge Road, began opening to supporters last season, as Fleet secured promotion to the top tier of non-league football.

An official statement read: “The club regrets to announce that it has been formally advised that the main contractor building the club’s new main stand – Trak Special Projects Ltd (TSP) – has ceased trading.

“A further announcement will be issued in due course.

“Supporters can be assured that we are working with our advisors to minimise the impact of this announcement in completing the last elements of the main stand fit-out.”

Earlier this year the club also recieved approval for plans to develop the Plough End of the stadium, which is set to accommodate 1,750 supporters on standing terraces, along with an integrated hotel.
