Elstone to provide stadium update at AGM

Everton will provide shareholders an update on a proposed new stadium development at next Tuesday's Annual General Meeting, the Everton Shareholders Association have announced.

With the club continuing to rule out redevelopment of Goodison Park as a viable option, CEO Roberto Elstone has been working on new plans to relocate Everton to a new site within the boundaries of Liverpool and will provide details at the meeting at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

Chairman Bill Kenwright is believed to favour a site on nearby Walton Hall Park and there has been a flurry of rumours over the past week that that is the location of a proposal for a new 54,000-seat Everton stadium.

An excerpt from the ESA announcement reads:

Mr Elstone intends to cover the new stadium opportunity at the forthcoming General Meeting. Pretty much everything that can be said will be presented on the evening when Mr Elstone will update Shareholders with the current status of the search for a new stadium and happily take questions on the subject.

Depending on how concrete the proposals from Mr Elstone are, this will be the first tangible sign of progress towards a new ground for the Blues since the failure of the controversial Destination Kirkby initiative four years ago.

According to the ESA, the new development "will not be a rehash" of the Kirkby design.
