In 2009 a 75 seater stand was installed as well as the rebuilding of the covered standing area that had been damaged previously by a storm. During the summer of 2010 the floodlights system was completed.
In the summer of 2012, the main pitch was ripped up completely to install the new drainage system. Over the years, the main pitch has had many problems with the drainage, so the decision was made to upgrade the drainage facility to help solve the problem. The work was finally completed at the end of September 2012. The summer of 2014 saw further development of the ground with a wooden perimeter fence being erected to fully enclose the main pitch area.
