Following a rather damp start to the year, contractors had to down tools and wait for the ground to dry out enough to start work again on the new pitch at Kings Langley FC.

However, since March, contractors have been working hard to ensure that the programme is back on track.

A new landscape area to the rear of the first team pitch has been completed and all of the top soil has now been put in place.

During the works, a storm drain was uncovered at the rear of the ground and will provide the perfect escape route for rain water – meaning there will be no need for a large soak away to be dug which reduces disturbance to the ground.

The new pitch was funded by an incredible local fundraising effort by Kings Langley FC, as well as a large grant from The Protecting Playing Fields fund which is part of a £150 million Places People Play legacy programme.
