Old Newton United FC

Suffolk-based Old Newton United FC play their matches at a fourpitch site in the village centre. The pitches

have been kept in excellent condition thanks to a piped drainage system that was installed in 2005 with the help of a small facility grant from the Foundation of £9,900.

The club has a robust and detailed maintenance programme undertaken by a volunteer groundsman to keep the pitches in optimum condition. However, due to its age, the costs of repairs to their ride-on mower exceeded its actual value and this was hampering the quality of the pitches.

At the start of 2011, the club and their partners successfully applied for a BtG grant of £4,963. They now have the use of a brand new tractor, with side discharge mower and mulching kit, which is ideal for their needs.

The new BtG-funded mower is therefore enabling Old Newton United FC to maintain the previous Foundation investment into the grass pitches.
