Netherton Football Club have been stringent with ensuring that all regular and more intensive maintenance procedures including infill top ups have been carried out. The clubs pitch care would have no doubt assisted the endurance and performance of their pitch resulting in successful testing and accreditation from FIFA.
Steve Gould, Facilities Manager, commented:
“The Grange, Peterborough, 3G sports pitch installed by McArdle’s as part of a Football Foundation project has since hand over in 2012 grown year on year. Managed by Netherton Community Sports Association the average footfall is now around 1000 people weekly, which is fantastic.
We have a wide range of users; Walking Footballers, Local Schools, Social Football, Charity Matches, Schools County Finals, Local League Finals, as well as regular training and matches. Usage has increased year on year. At a recent progress meeting with the football Foundation the facility, along with its Management received very positive feedback.
We are constantly receiving positive comments with regards to the Pitch some suggesting it is one of if not the best facility in the area and indeed further afield. We pride ourselves on maintaining the pitch to the highest possible standard and recently for the second successive period have achieved the FIFA 1 Star rating.
Our aim is to continue to grow and provide football for the local community whilst maintaining the 3G sports pitch facility to the highest standards possible.”
