Noise-reducing solutions such as acoustic fencing could soon be considered at Scarborough Rugby Union Football Club after its application for an amplified sound licence was rejected.

The local council rejected the plans, which would have enabled music, advertisements and tannoy announcements to be played during events and functions.

Spokesman for the club Graeme Young told the Yorkshire Post: "The UK's largest mini-rugby festival which was being planned at the club next April will no long be able to go ahead at this time as a consequence of the council’s decision."

He also revealed that a Yorkshire vs Lancashire Roses match was also planned, which is now under threat along with a number of other events.

Scarborough Rugby Union Football Club will now consider the concerns raised by councillors of the impact on nearby residents and would think about launching an appeal.

A recent poll from the Daily Star Sunday found that 66.3 per cent of football fans would like to see standing areas returned to sporting venues throughout the country.
