North Shields Football Club are delighted that work is still on going at the ground to be ready for the new season!
With social distance measures in place a small team of volunteers have been hard at work to ensure that the ground is in tip top condition ready for the new season.
WHAT HAS GONE ON?
- We have taken the goals down to ensure re weld the fittings to ensure the goals are square. The netting is going to be re-fitted closer to the season starting again to ensure it is in pristine condition.
The Committee would ask, although our ground looks rather inviting that you do resit from entering our private property and help to save our pitch and goals during this time. A lot of work goes into maintaining the ground.
- We are painting the wood around the advertising boards to gain the most out of the boards and give them extra life time. We also hope this is a small change you may notice but we can also smarten up the ground. We are also going to be starting to re paint the Tea Hut, again looking for a face lift, work will be starting very soon.
- New seating in the Main Stand. Although, it is rather rustic we pride ourselves with providing our amazing supporters with a football ground in which you are able to enjoy your visit. We are always looking for ways to improve the supporter experience. We have noticed the main stand was after a face lift. A few of our volunteers have stripped the old seating out of the main stand and work is well underway to ensure the new seating is safe and secure ready for when football can resume.
- We are awaiting some rain to start work on our pitch. We are going to have the pitch vertidrained and reseeded to ensure we have the best possible pitch for Marc Nash and the playing squad to play the very best football. We pride ourselves with having one of the best playing surfaces in the league. In order to maintain this we once again ask that you do not enter the ground unless by paying to enter on a match day. Our ground is not a playground. There is lots of surrounding football pitches on Collingwood Playing Fields which you are able to play on. Please remember North Shields FC is at the heart of the community.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to The Daren Persson Stadium very soon!
