The need for this service is more relevant now than ever, given the current economic times and the pressures facing grassroots football.
The FA Facilities & Investment Team have been working in partnership with the Grounds Management Association (GMA) to develop a Grass Pitch Improvement and Maintenance Programme that can be utilised by grassroots football clubs, organisations and local authorities with the simple aim of improving the quality of grass pitches.
The key principles behind the service are to provide members of the programme with advice/practical solutions via a Grass Pitch Assessment Report which will also identify the key enhanced maintenance works required along with machinery requirements.
In Durham County FA we will be working with the North’s GMA Regional Pitch Advisor, Ian Powell and a local support network to provide visits to grass pitch sites across the county.
We strongly recommend our club volunteers utilise the GMA Resources and explore more about their training courses on the website which you can access by clicking here.
