Alerbury FC, new £1m site, digger gets to work at new site

Work has started on Alderbury Football Club’s new £1 million base at Firs Road.

The bulldozers moved on to the 12-acre site during the Summer of 2017 to start levelling the land that is to become six new pitches, a pavilion and car park for 100 cars. The site is next to the club’s current facility but will be accessed from Firs Road to improve access.

The new base includes three full sized pitches, a three-quarter sized pitch and two mini soccer pitches.

The pavilion which overlooks the main pitch will home the players and officials changing rooms, club room and kitchen along with toilets and a storage room.


Club chairman Martin Woodroffe said the club had outgrown its old site a long time ago.

He said: "We have been working with the Longford Estate on plans to relocate to a larger ground for the past 12 years. It has been challenging identifying a suitable site, obtaining planning permission and securing the necessary funding for the project."

He added: "The main pitch has the benefit of secondary drainage in addition to the primary drainage being put in place across the whole site, this should result in fewer games having to be cancelled due to waterlogged pitches."
