There were celebrations for all involved with Wokingham & Emmbrook Football Club last night as planning approval was granted for improvements to the clubs Lowther Road ground.
The permission means the Satsumas’ have a permanent base in the town after years and years of hard work for the first time since they left Finchampstead Road in 1999.
Here’s what the clubs supporters had to say, and former manager Dan Bateman was delighted.
SUMAS are coming home! What fantastic news for the club and well done to all the commitee for working tirelessly to do it! @wokingham_sumas
