Facilities and prices

We have a range of facilities which can be booked. See below for prices.

3G Pitch

Our 3G pitch was opened by the Football Association in October 2014.  It is certified and registered as a suitable playing surface with the FA and also has flood lighting.

The pitch can be divided into three and  5, 6 or 7 a side pitches using the nets.  When the nets are down full 11 a side matches can be played.  It is also marked out for 9 v 9 matches and goals are available.

We have two separate changing rooms for home and away matches, plus an additional room for referees/officials.

Summer availability is very good with 1/3 pitches available most nights.

For the football 16/17 season availability is limited to the slots below, priority will be given to clubs booking in for the 40 week season:
