New artifical pitches

We are very pleased to announce that our recent funding bid to the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund and the Sport England Community Asset Fund has been successful and that we will soon bring exciting improvements to the sports facilities at Yarborough and Birchwood Leisure Centres.

Both sites will benefit from a new full-size flood-lit all weather pitch, and Yarborough Leisure Centre will also enjoy a fully refurbished athletics track. The sites play host to five a side football leagues, youth football and running clubs, and the improvements will be of huge benefit to all local sporting groups and communities. Work is expected to start in both areas in the near future and we appreciate the support and understanding of local residents. Plans have been put into place to keep disruption to a minimum at all times. 


Week 13

Workers have completed installing the synthetic carpet and are finishing off the pitch markings. The rubber crumb has arrived on site and is ready to be spread evenly over the top of the carpet.

The electrical meter will be installed. However, due to the yellow warnings for rain, the rubber crumb cannot be laid at the moment and the pitch will be opened on 24 June.

If you would like to book this pitch, please contact Donna.Taylor@activenation.org.uk 

Week 11

The porous tarmac has been laid out and the fence panels have been installed. The synthetic carpet has just arrived on site this week and workers are ready to install the synthetic surface the the rubber crumb. 

Next week, work will continue with the installation of the synthetic carpet and landscaping. Electrical work will be completed on the 12th June and the pitch will be finished a week after that on the 17th June.

Week 8

The acoustic wall and floodlights have been erected along with the uprights for the permanent fencing.  The stone sub-base for the pitch and hard-standing has been completed and is ready for the layer of porous tarmac which will be poured on next week.
