3G Artificial Pitch
The 3G pitch was installed by Velocity a company that also installed AFC Sudbury’s and have done a fantastic job. The surface itself is an engineered porous tarmac base with a shock pad in between that and the 40mm Domo carpet. The Domo carpet is then filled with a base layer of sand and then the cork infill. This pitch is the first full size non league pitch in the country to have a cork infill although they are widely seen in Europe it is the first of its kind here.
Another ground breaking addition to the ground is the first used Osram lighting of this kind on a football pitch. The installers Halliday’s Lighting advised us on this model and make in the LED model and have improved our pitch lighting no end.
New Paths and fencing
Part of the project saw us renew all the paths and fencing, bringing it all up to a high standard to match the pitch and give it more of a professional feel to the ground.
Another new addition was the newly built home dressing room. As well as the updating done to two of the other ones giving us four dressing rooms in total now.
This is part of the ground that will be updated in the near future, its bar and kitchen is fully functioning and welcoming to all visitors. The Kitchen is open any time the facility is in use and the bar on matchday’s or special events only.
