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.
