Wakefield Trinity Wildcats may be moving into a new stadium at the proposed site at Newmarket Lane, on the outskirts of Methley.
That's certainly the view of the Wildcats' supporters group SWAG which issued the following statement this morning:
"SWAG are delighted to announce that we have received confirmation that the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles, is 'Minded to Approve' the planning application for Newmarket which includes the Community Stadium and future home of Wakefield Trinity.
"Eight years of hard work, meetings, protests, leafletting and a 15,000+ signature petitions have all been worth while in our efforts to firstly alter the political will in Wakefield towards the sport and, in particular, the Rugby League clubs, and then more latterly in supporting their attempts to secure a facility in the Wakefield District.
"We would also wish to thank all of those people in Wakefield and beyond who have supported us - our strength has always been in numbers and our attempts could not work without them.
"Our focus will now turn towards ensuring the delivery of the Stadium and we believe that the proposal, led by Yorkcourt, will soon realise the dream we have held firm to throughout our campaign!"
