3G pitch one step closer to completion
Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016
Amersham & Wycombe College is one step closer to completing a new 3G artificial football pitch at its Flackwell Heath campus with the laying of an essential stone base layer and the positioning of perimeter fencing.
Following further layers and tarmacking, the surface will then be ready for the artificial surface. Consistent wet weather hampered progress earlier this year but the whole facility is now anticipated as being ready for sign off early in July.
The 3G pitch, which is a unique facility for an FE college, will give football students a fantastic start to the new academic year. Combine this with the unprecedented association the college has been able to negotiate with Reading Football Club to develop future footballing talent and the college is in an ideal position to deliver its range of highly respected football courses in September.
Once the 3G pitch is complete, not only will college sports and football students be able to enjoy it, but local football clubs will be able to hire the facility, making it a valuable contribution to the local community.
