danpiesley Rovers were in financial trouble and could not afford the lease on the ground. Sporting Bromsgrove formed from a fans consortium to buy Rovers and run it for the fans, but the club got sold to someone else who managed to run it into the ground.
Sporting put in a bid to lease the ground, while Rovers put in a a rival bid where they would pay a rent of zero. Strangely enough Sporting won the lease but opened themselves up to a deal with Rovers to share the ground whereupon Rovers once again couldn’t afford to pay any rent. There was going to be some legal moves to throw Rovers off the ground but there was no point as the league threw them out for legally having no stadium. Rovers disappeared but Sporting started up a bunch of tiers below them.
The attendances nowdays are a bit mental for a club in their division. They get 800 to 1200 turning up which makes parking in that part of town a bit tough. The playoff had nearly 3000 and the police had to close off the main road by the stadium.
