The Cornish Pirates are revealing plans to do up the Mennaye Field.

The club say they still believe there will be a Stadium for Cornwall one day.

But the board of directors say they have got to move forward and keep their destiny in their own hands.

It follows the ongoing row over plans for a stadium at Threemilestone.

The council has already said it won't help pay for it.

In a statement the club said: "Despite the ongoing uncertainty surrounding a delivery date for a Stadium for Cornwall following a recent meeting to review our options the Board of the Cornish Pirates has taken some decisions with respect to our near term future. This announcement is intended to provide our supporters with some clarity as to these future plans.

"Although we believe a stadium at Threemilestone will one day become a reality we have to move forward as a club both on and off the field and our destiny must be in our own hands.

"Primarily our basic aim is to be a competitive Championship club with the goal in each season being a top four finish. We also believe that the British & Irish Cup is a worthwhile and exciting competition and each season we will be looking to progress into the knock-out stages of the competition.

"Off the field we are intending to introduce significant improvements to the Mennaye and we will be releasing further information on these proposals as soon as we have clarity and finance in place.

"It is our intention to seek to retain the vast majority of our existing squad whilst at the same time looking to recruit quality players for certain key positions. We have already begun contract talks with several players. We hope to further develop our relationships with Exeter and other Premiership clubs as we believe there is real benefit in the utilisation of Dual Registered and loan players."
