The 3G Pitch is Officially Open!
On Saturday 4th September the 3G Pitch was officially opened by Spurs legend and World Cup winner Ossie Ardiles.
After 10 years of hard work, approximately 500 visitors helped celebrate the opening. The project's success was made possible by a £817,000 grant from the Football Foundation, the funding body of the FA and Premier League, and £150,000 from Uttlesford District Council. The remaining funds were raised at a community level, which included significant donations from community businesses and organisations. SWCFC Club Secretary, Matt Clare said: "The opening event was better than anyone could have hoped for. It has been a long road, but the sight of 200 children running onto the pitch when Ossie Ardiles cut the ribbon was just perfect."
It has been fantastic to see our students using the pitch over the last few weeks!
