Birtley Town FC
UK Facilities Management are proud to be working with Birtley Town Football Club to help them prepare for the start of the upcoming football season. We're already a sponsor of the club and they contacted us with a list of improvements they'd like to make to their ground The Birtley Sports Complex. We understand the importance of being involved with and supporting the local community so we're delighted to be supporting the club to achieve their goals (excuse the pun).
First on the list for ground improvements was the nets behind the goal...
Birtley Town FC has it's own private ground with security fencing all around the perimeter. One problem for the club was the amount of balls that were either lost or had to be recovered due to mishit shots going over the fences and into the surrounding properties. To help resolve this problem the club wanted to install some high nets to the security fencing in the areas behind the goals. The club already had nets in storage but just needed our help to fit them, so we used a cherry picker which allowed us to safely reach the required height and help the club get their nets up.
We look forward to continue working with Birtley Town FC in preparation for their first home game of pre-season on Saturday 8th July against local team Chester-Le-Street.
