Astroturf Pitch Development
The club has a preferred supplier nominated for the Astroturf Pitch development. Works are scheduled to begin in March/April 2020 with a view to the facility being completed before the summer season break.
Firstly, we have been granted use of a pitch in the new Riverchapel Community Complex. After years of planning, the pitches are ready for use and over the coming months we will gradually begin to start playing matches on the new pitch. Courtown Hibs have been granted exclusive rights in return for maintainence and the new pitch, being centrally located within the village, will make it easier for players and parents alike!! Training's have commenced on this facility with a view to games being players over the coming season for underage teams.
We have obtained an extra plot of land to the top of our home pitch. At present this is being used by Gorey Cricket Club. The long term aim of the club is to drain, level and seed this land and add an additional pitch to the facility. This will allow added capacity as the underage section of the club develops further. This is a 10 year plan and will take second stage to our Astroturf development for the foreseeable future.
Further development is expected within the clubhouse itself. A new tuck shop is currently in the pipeline for the viewing area to the indoor hall. This will allow parents get refreshments while they watch our Academy on a Saturday morning. A new office facility in the upstairs hall is also in the works. This will allow us a meeting facility for our committee while maintaining one upstairs room for hire/lease.
