Baysgarth School to unveil brand new all weather pitch

Baysgarth School, in partnership with the North Lincolnshire Council, will officially open a new all-weather pitch on Friday 8 December at 4.15pm, thanks to a grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.

The grant has enabled the school to replace one of their existing grass pitches with a state-of-the-art third generation (3G) artificial grass pitch (AGP). This joins the School’s two other full-size grass pitches, one 9v9 pitch, three Mini-Soccer pitches, a rugby pitch and a cricket area.

The new all-weather surface will offer the school and its users, including local grassroots clubs Barton JFC, Barton United JFC, Barton Broncos FC and Barton Rangers Ladies FC, improved flexibility when it comes to scheduling matches and fixtures. An 80% increase in overall football participation is expected on site as a result.

The project was made possible thanks to a £378,302 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund, which is delivered by the Football Foundation.

Since 2000, the Football Foundation Funding Partners’ investment has provided 260 grants worth £11.7m towards grassroots sports projects worth over £29m across the whole of Lincolnshire.

Founded in 2000, the Football Foundation is the largest sports charity in the UK funded by the Premier League, The FA and Government, via Sport England. It develops new and refurbished grassroots sports facilities in order to improve the quality and experience of playing sport at the grassroots level. Since it was launched in 2000, the Foundation has awarded around 15,000 grants worth more than £580m towards improving grassroots sport, which it has used to attract additional partnership funding of over £800m – £1.4bn of investment into the grassroots game.
