All members,

We are immensely proud of our new artitifical pitch and we hope to enjoy it for many years to come. As the pitch is opening shortly for use, please be aware of rules around use and allowed footwear.

To prolong the life of our new artificial pitch and prevent injury, only boots with Moulded studs are allowed with strictly NO exceptions.

All other types of boots (steel/metal studs or bladed soles) will catch in the fibres and have caused leg breaks, serious ligament injuries and tear the fibres of the pitch reducing its lifespan..

Flat soled shoes/runners/astro boots with dimpled studs are not permitted as they will shorten the life of the surface.

No adhoc walking on to pitch. Dropping off and pickup of players to be outside pitch fence. Spectators strictly not allowed on artificial surface.

These rules apply to all players, coaches, mentors, parents and match officials.

For any teams hosting oppositions teams using artificial pitch during the year, it is up to lead mentor to inform opposition and officials about these restrictions.
