Pitch replacement project
Sadly, our bid for funding narrowly failed.
The NHC committee has taken the decision to commission a 'pitch regeneration' process from Technical Services. This process will vastly improve the playing experience at Goosedale. This work will be undertaken in late April 2015 and should be completed by the end of May.
In addition there are a number of smaller projects over the summer of 2015 to improve the look and feel of the pitch.
In 2016 we will try to improve the fencing around the pitch and in 2017 we hope to refresh the lighting. This will leave the playing surface and shock-pad to be replaced between 2018 - 2020.
We had planned to do this work in one project this summer if the bid had been successful, however the Committee felt that improving the playing surface asap was vital for the Club.
The Club will be calling for volunteers over the summer to help - you will see the difference when you next play at the Goose!
