An Essex junior football club is enjoying a brand new artificial grass pitch (AGP) thanks to a £100,000 grant from The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.

Writtle Minors FC near Chelmsford bagged 67 grants totalling £5.8m to develop grassroots football facilities.

The AGP was installed by Limonta Smith JV Ltd, a joint venture formed by Smith Construction (Heckington) Ltd and turf manufacturers Limonta Sport, a FIFA preferred producer, which has been appointed to a Football Foundation, Football Association, Rugby Football Union, England Hockey and Sport England framework for the second time.

The framework agreement ensures that the country’s artificial grass pitches (AGPs) are consistent quality and price.

Limonta Smith JV won the £135,000 project to provide Writtle Minors FC with a state-of-the-art all-weather pitch, with the old tarmac play area removed and replaced with a 37m x 30m Limonta Infinity 55 carpet.

Dawn Fencing Limited of Leigh installed Duo8 Super Rebound sports fencing and gates from Zaun, while easy lift goals, bins and corner flags gave the pitch a polished professional finish.

Zaun fencing was also employed just down the road at a new artificial sports pitch, and air dome at Great Baddow High School opened by stars from Premiership football team West Ham United.

Then Hammers manager Sam Allardyce, debutant Reece Burke and vice-captain and longest-serving current player Mark Noble opened The Dome, made possible by funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities scheme, which funds the renovation and modernisation of grassroots sports facilities.
