With just one month exactly until Exeter City kick off their 2017/18 League Two campaign, the new look St James Park continues to take shape.

Work to redevelop the ground continues, with the away end demolished and the new changing rooms currently being built in the Main Stand.

Latest pictures show that final preparations are being made in order to lay the concrete in the changing rooms, and insulation and protective membrane have also been installed.

The away end has been demolished, and the terracing has been completely removed ahead of the planned redevelopment of the Old Grandstand.

And concrete has been laid for the base of the new toilet block in the Big Bank stand. The Brickwork build also begun this week.

The development sees the club's Old Grandstand – built in 1926 – being replaced with a new stand, the club's away end being rebuilt, and student accommodation, with 312 beds, being built behind the Big Bank.

As part of the scheme, new changing rooms will be constructed under the Main Stand, with replacement toilets and refreshment facilities being provided for the Big Bank.

Exeter City host Cambridge United on Saturday, August 5 in the first game of the new season. The preseason schedule also gets underway next week when Paul Tisdale's squad travel to Bath.
