What teams at this level would not be allowed up due to their ground?

Would you change the ground if it looked like you were coming up? Jermaine Beckford played for you didnt he? He was a brilliant player for us

I wouldn’t personally, we need to grow as a club at this level for a years before even thinking about the EFL. Long story short, we need to secure a long term lease on the ground which in turn will allow us to be allocated grant funding for infrastructure projects.

As for Jermaine, yes he did. We could all see his talent, his final year with us, he was making a mockery of opposition defences.

Ours would need some changes but our chairman has intimated it's all doable.
Before Suttons amazing promotion I would have said it would never happen but who knows?

If our ground make the grade, I’m sure yours would with a little work. I hope our team can keep us up this season. If they do, we will need to get more seats installed to ensure it passes the L2 grading.

This is not a thing and hasn't been for about 30 years I think. They let any old shithole up.

Aren’t clubs given a season after promotion to bring up their grounds to FL standards anyway?
The only clubs that would need major work to reach FL standard would be Wealdstone and Maidenhead IMO.

Plus we already have plans for a new place underway which is enough to satisfy the EFL, at least in the short term.

Hopefully Solihull, it's a characterless collection of temporary stands more suited to a country fair.
Absolute hovel of a ground.
Unfortunately not. They have enough seats!

Yep, it's a horrible ground. The social club is decent though.
