It wants to build a 4,000-seat capacity football stadium, with Berwick Rangers as a potential tenant.

“If this is achieved it would create a fantastic asset for Berwick, north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders,” said a Chamber spokesman.

“This is clearly early days for this initiative, but the Chamber of Trade offers the Berwick Stadium Trust its full support, we wish it well in securing any funding and approvals required and we hope that it is successful in securing support and collaboration from Northumberland County Council.”
