Chairman Dale Vince has confirmed in a Facebook post that Forest Green Rovers will appeal the council's decision to block a new eco-stadium.

At a meeting on Wednesday night, Stroud District Council made the shock decision to block the plans in one of its earliest stages.

Mr Vince, in a statement made on the social media site, says the meeting ended in 'a farce' and that no strong reasons for objection were given by Conservative councillors.
