Cottages craving a move

last updated Tuesday 12th September 2000, 1:55 PM
CURRENTLY top of the Division One and with the only 100 per cent record in England, life would seem to be rosy for Fulham, however they have been told that they will only be allowed to stay in their current ground for a year.

The reason behind this is that the stadium has three sides which have terracing, a contravention of the FA rules on stadia brought in after the Hillsbrough disaster.

Fulham have been told they must start playing away fixtures from August 2002, no matter which league they are in.

Having been promoted from Division Two in the 1998/99 season, the West London side had three years to make their ground an all-seater which runs out in 2002.

Owner Mohammed Al Fayed is still waiting for permission from the local council over plans to develop Craven Cottage into a 30,000 all-seater at a cost of £70 million.
