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 5

The stone sub-base has been prepared for the porous tarmac.   This will complete the base works.  The installation of the floodlights began with the posts being mounted into the foundations.  Uprights for the permanent fencing around the pitch and the uprights for the acoustic wall are being erected.  Fence panels will be installed once the uprights are completed.
