Bath Rugby confirms it has now completed the purchase of the Lambridge Training Ground.
The sale of Lambridge to Bath Rugby by Bath Football Club Trustees Ltd (for an undisclosed sum), is a significant milestone for the professional club, which had been leasing the site from the former owners since 1997.
Nick Blofeld, chief executive of Bath Rugby said: "We are delighted to have now completed the purchase of Lambridge, and would like to thank the Trustees for their help in the process. We hope the site can now be used by the Amateur Bath Youth and Women's Teams for training and playing purposes."
"With respect to the ongoing discussions regarding the future of The Rec, we are still working with The Recreation Ground Trust and are looking forward to a positive outcome from the Charity Commission shortly."
