LONDON Broncos are set for a move out of the capital to leafy Farnborough, it has been claimed.
Broncos will leave The Stoop at the end of this season, and chief executive Gus Mackay is leading the search for a new home.
Saturday’s 20-46 defeat to Bradford Bulls was held at Wycombe Wanderers’ Adams Park, another venue touted as a possible solution.
But it would appear Farnborough’s Rushmoor Community Stadium has won the race after a message posted on the club’s fans’ forum claimed a deal had been struck.
Steve Pearman, the team’s U18s boss, wrote: “Whilst the club has not actually bothered to call and tell me which I would have expected as a matter of courtesy after seven years, they have taken the decision to withdraw the reserve and under 18 sides next season so they can ground share with the London Broncos.”
The Broncos, who have also playd in Fulham, Chiswick, Barnet, Charlton, Crystal Palace and Brentford, have called the Twickenham Stoop, home of rugby union side Harlequins, home since 2006.
Young star Kieran Dixon (pictured)scored another hat-trick against Bradford Bulls, but there waslittle else to shout about - especially for Tony Clubb, who picked up an injury in his 150th game for the club.
Meanwhile, Broncos have drawn Featherstone Rovers at home in the Challenge Cup fourth round on Saturday week. Before that, they play at Leeds Rhinos in the Super League tonight.
