Marford Road 3G Astroturf Opening Soon!

posted Sep 19, 2014, 1:25 AM by Wheathampstead Wanderers

A very exciting development for the club this season is the opening of the Astro Turf pitch on Marford playing fields in Wheathampstead. This is the result of a huge amount of effort and partnership between our Parish Council and Wanderers, and will be a fantastic facility for the whole village.

We have secured evening slots for midweek training from 6pm – 7pm and 7pm – 8pm. This is a significant financial commitment from Wanderers, which allows us to extend our training offering to younger age groups. Keeping it local is important to everyone involved in both conducting training and to all of you who are able to get there a lot easier on the whole. Floodlit training in our village is now a reality.

The new 3G is expected to be in use for training in the next couple of weeks

This has also helped the club in the eyes The Football Association with our Charter Club Development Status.
