The situation of Basingstoke Community Football Club has received an outpouring of support from footballing royalty.

As previously reported in the Gazette, the years-old covenant, which protected football at the Camrose until 2053, was found this week.

Since then, the potential loss of the club's historic ground has attracted the likes of Gary Lineker and Henry Winter to throw their support behind the growing campaign to keep football at the Camrose ground.

And the issue was also featured on talkSPORT radio, with Gazette reporter Ryan Evans appearing on the Hawksbee and Jacobs show to talk about the finding of the covenant.

Basingstoke Gazette:

As previously reported by the Gazette, the Basingstoke Town Football Club were evicted from the grounds before the start of the season last August. 

The previous owner, Rafi Razzak has since torn up the football pitch previously suggesting he was "re-seeding the grass". 

Basingstoke Gazette:

Basron developments submitted planning permission to the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council last year which aims to add a further 89 houses to the Brighton Hill development. 

Basingstoke Gazette:

An account has since sold off a lot of the clubs equipment including the the football stands and the public toilets. 

The eBay user has since terminated all sales of football equipment on the website.

Mr Razzak told the Gazette that he was unaware of this.
